El Hans is a little off the beaten track but well worth searching out. We visited after a trip to the ferris wheel because it was that side of town, otherwise we have missed a treat. The restaurant wasn't full despite being a Saturday night...More

This restaurant was yummy. They discreetly and expertly accommodated my dietary restrictions. They also wowed my husband with a great presentation and interesting flavor combinations.

Found el Hans after a brief search on Trip Advisor. Decide OK we will try. Looked expensive but the food is out of this world. Had the lamb shoulder and the ravioli and they were exceptional.

This is a good place to go if you;ve had too much schnitzel and want something more sophisticated, interesting and tasty. Complex food that doesn't quite succeed in some cases, but I would certainly return.

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and

Hello KennyJ53, we serve some glutenfree dishes, of course, and also different dishes with fish. It would be great if you could tell me the exact date of your dinner so we will be prepared. Best regards, Matthias
