Best for Value for money - Expert review of Gasthaus Reinthaler
Nicely tucked away in a hidden spot across from the Albertina, this traditional Gasthaus (traditional inn) serves some of the best home-cooked Viennese lunches. Hugely popular with the locals, it gets packed. Tables are big so don't hesitate to sit with other diners if seats are available – usually, the waiter will offer this as an option.
Classic Viennese cuisine dominates the menu – that's what people come here for. Try Griessnockerlsuppe (bouillon with fluffy semolina dumplings), or Krautroulade (juicy meat-filled cabbage rolls).
When in season try the hot apricot dumplings, covered in bread-crumbs, served with vanilla ice cream. When I've had them here the portion is usually big enough for two. I think they're the best in town!
Here's a place for those wanting to beam back to the 60s. It is a no-frills eatery, simply furnished with wooden chairs and formica tables. The quiet Schanigarten (pavement garden) outside the entrance is lovely.
The service is efficient and very speedy.
