Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor as it was near our hotel. We were not disappointed. Everything about Sperl is traditional Viennese. Loved the atmosphere, the menu and the service. Price was right for what we got. Just what we needed for our first night...More

Staff mananaged a lot of guests in appropriate time. Quality was excellent, for example the dumplings in the soup were soft and tasty. The goose had a very nice flavour. Pudding was delicious, too.

We discovered by chance this nice Austrian restaurant. It was a great discovery. Good food, quick service, nice people. They accomodated us even without reservation. Special positive mention for the "Leberknodelsuppe" and the "Nierndl gerostet" that is some kind of kidney specialty. Very reasonably prices.

We came here on a rainy day after exploring Belvedere Palace. The great food, friendly ambience and fantastic service made it very memorable. The guests on different tables chatted with us.

I ordered a dish from the "weekly special" menu, and it was zucchini and pumpkin breaded in egg, with spaghetti in tomato sauce. It was too much egg, and the egg fell apart from the vegetables. There were egg shells left behind. Also, the spaghettini...More

The fourth district combines elegant tradition with
contemporary style and relaxed living. More than a

Borromeo have added glamour to a neighbourhood known
