What a fantastic dining experience. The food was superb, we both had the creamy parsnip soup with crayfish followed by the fillet steak and my wife had the sea bass. All cooked perfectly and full of flavour. The standout was the service. Our waiter talked...More

This place was hopping when we were there! Despite that, the service was great - friendly, helpful. Food was delicious - ragout, duck breast, goat cheese creme brulee. It's not fancy, but you'll be glad that you went.

Went as recommended by TripAdvisor. The staff were serious rather than warm & friendly. The food came very quickly. We had 3 different mains. The food was nice to ok. There was no 'Wow' factor to it. Had nicer and better food in Vienna and...More

Visited this place last night. Great service and great food. The place itself is a lovely setting for a special occasion. We rounded off our meal with some schnapps which were the perfect finish. Only downside, tables a little too close together.

Returning from Lake Garda we were somewhat tired of designed food, we were looking for something cooked. The place is small and so are the tables, reservation is suggested. Sure, we started with the iconic Goat-cheese Brule and agree with all what was said before....More

I had the best meal and time there. Dishes were all fabulous and characterized by a modern twist on classic fares: the venison and cocoa-based sauce was incredibly well balanced, the duck melted in our mouths, the chanterelles were perfectly cooked, and the person at...More

The place seems popular so if u wanna dine there better to reserve seats first. We tried veal cheeks which was great- tender meat, smooth mash potato but the vegetables are a bit salty. Overall it's a great dining place.

Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly
turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to
legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at
Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque
façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for
a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse,
Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and
Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories
