Best for Value for money - Expert review of Gasthaus Reinthaler

Viennese home cooking at bargain prices.

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.

Food and drink: 

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).

Recommended dishes: 

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!

Ambience: 

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.

Service: 

The service is efficient and very speedy.

Location: 

Gasthaus Reinthaler is on the tiny Gluckgasse between Albertina and Neuermarkt. It is very central but just off the beaten tourist track.

Price advice: 

There are daily bargain specials for 5.90 euros, soups are 2.50-3.30 euros, main courses range between 6.20 and 13.20 euros, desserts are 2.50-3.90 euros, red and white wines by the quarter litre glass costs between 2.40 and 2.80 euros.
