Fodor's Review

The origins here go back to 1683, when this spot opened as one of the city's official Stadtheuriger (wine taverns), to provide Turk-fighting soldiers with wine before going off to battle. Below the Esterházy palace, the atmosphere is like that of a cozy cave, with low-hanging vaults and alpine wooden booths. The maze of rooms offers some of the best wines of any cellar in town, plus a typical Viennese menu noontime and evenings. Ordering seems back to front: food orders are taken at the counter, while a waiter comes to the table to take your order for drinks. The best choice for meat lovers is roast pork with dumplings and cabbage.

Great Food, Great Prices in a Quiet Setting

We ate at the Esterhazy Keller twice during a week-long trip to Vienna. The salads were prepared with the freshest ingredients and the grilled trout was superb. The white wine was also excellent. The bill for two people was under $30 US for two people. The service was friendly and efficient. Most of the other diners seemed to be locals and regular customers. This restaurant is a real find in the busy (and expensive) Innere Stadt area of Vienna.
