After the concert decided to go to Planchutas... it was late, 10:15pm not easy to find where to have dinner, it was recommended as a touristy place, but have to say NO ! Sure there are tourist , the place is huge, but there are plenty of locals and most important it’s not a tourist trap !!! The food is excellent, the goose liver, the scallops, the Wiener schnitzel to die, the service and the price !!!

We came to the restaurant by a recommendation for the best Tafelspitz and Wiener schnitzel. We were first seated on a tiny side table with a small walk way, that was made even smaller by placing a chair for the table on the other side. As a result everybody had to lean over our table to walk through. However, they reseated us on request.
After we were reseated, an unfriendly and unmotivated waiter took our order. As an appetizer we received some dry bread rolls. The Wiener schnitzel tasted below average and was far from our expectations. The tafelspitz however tasted really good and we would recommend it.

The place itself was nicely done but it was missing the atmosphere, kindness from the staff, music and coziness.

We were directed to Plachuttas Gasthaus zur Oper by a local culinary expert as the best place for authentic wiener schnitzel. It definitely lived up to the reviews for excellent food, but the service was a bit disappointing. The staff all seems distracted as if they had better things to do. We had to flag down our waiter for a refill on water and to order more wine. It was also extremely crowded, luckily we had our hotel make a reservation.

We found the restaurant on a windy, rainy Friday night. We didn’t have a reservation but they had space in the outside eating area which had heaters and provided blankets and to be honest we were very comfortable.

Warm bread rolls with butter and a herby cheesy spread were delivered while we read the menu.

We had soup to start. I had the beef consommé with then pancake strips which were a little hard to eat. My husband chose a creamy potato soup which I also tried and I think he made the better choice.

We then had the veal schnitzel. Two enormous pieces of thin veal, breaded and deep fried to a crispy consistency, served with lemon and a potato salad. The veal was amazing. At first I thought I’d never manage such a large portion but I did

The potato salad was not the stodgy North American version but small dainty pieces of potato in a buttery vinegar type sauce which complimented the veal well.

We had the local unfiltered beer which we enjoyed.

The food was excellent and I enjoyed trying the Viennese specialities. I would have preferred an indoor experience and so would recommend making a reservation. The outdoor location would probably be wonderful in summer.

Very well located for the opera.

We were pointed in the direction of PLACHUTTA which did not disappoint us at all. Our PR Director on Viking River Cruise - Stein - recommend this place for a wonderful meal - wonderful atmosphere right in the middle of bustling Vienna. We took the waiter's suggestion and had their famous Tafelspitz. Trust me - you will not be disappointed. At first we thought it was just soup - but each course was being served from the pots on our table- truly a wonderful experience - very very tasty meal and fun memories. Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant. Tel: +43/1/512 15 77 Be sure to eat outside - they have heaters if weather is cool.
