Vienna Restaurants

Gösser Bierklinik

Updated 08/26/2014

Fodor's Review

Dating back four centuries, this engaging old-world house sits in the heart of Old Vienna. One of the country's top addresses for beer connoisseurs, it serves brews, both draft and bottled, Dunkeles (dark) and Helles (light), from the Gösser brewery in Styria. Of the four eating areas, many diners opt for the covered courtyard, where beer tastes better no matter the weather. Besides the obligatory (but first-class) Wiener schnitzel with potato salad, you

shouldn't miss the whole wheat sandwiches stuffed with ham, cheese, and vegetables. Another good choice is the Kas'nocken (pasta dumplings topped with melted Tyrolean mountain cheese).

Best Tafelspitz Ever

We had the best Tafelspitz we have ever had - and I have had quite a few - here at the Grosser Bierklink. This place is off the beaten track - we stumbled upon because I was looking for a place to get a beer - but my wife and I looked at the menu and decided to come back for dinner. We were glad we did. A really good meal.

Fair fare found.

Mercifully this restaurant had a no smoking section fully apart from the other diners. This did nothing for the staff who occassionally remembered there were customers in the other room. There was an English version of the menu but the daily fare which is fresh and well priced was in German. The soups again were good as we found throughout Austria, but we were very tired of the mostly pork, beef, sausage dishes that essentially were tasteless.

Thank goodness Austrians make good chocolate and pastries.
