Figlmüller Review

This Wiener Schnitzel institution is known for breaded veal and pork cutlets so large they overflow the plate, and it's always packed. The cutlet is so large because it's been hammered (you can hear the mallets pounding from a block away). The schnitzel winds up wafer-thin but delicious, because the quality, as well as the size, is unrivaled (a quarter kilo for each). As the Viennese say, "Schnitzel should swim," so don't forget the lemon juice. If this location is full, try the one just around the corner on Bäckerstrasse 6.

    A Viennese Institution

    It is noisy, you may wait in line and you may share a bench with strangers, but in the right mood you will love every moment of it. The Schnitzel is delicious, but more amazing is the potato and green salad you should order on the side, The unusual greens with the dressing {someone said it includes pumpkinseed oil} were so incredible I ate them all before eating anything else. The same dressing is on the potato salad, and it is almost addictive, making it transcend what you think about potato salads. The combination is so good we returned the next day for lunch. The clientele includes many locals but also regulars, such as a man we met there from Rumania, who come there often.

    best food we had in Vienna

    The schniztel is incredible! Best i've had in my life, let alone in Austria. Highly, highly recommend it for the schnitzel and it was very inexpensive. Also located right in the center of town. Go early for dinner (around 5-5:30) if you don't want to wait in line, but it is so worth it.

    Packed but worth the wait! Excellent schnitzel and nice service (try to speak a few words of German and the service is great). Huge portions, great value for great schnitzel.
