4.5

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.
