"Ofenloch" is a restaurant we always visit when in Vienna (annually). As another reviewer noted, it's decor hasn't changed over the years - nor should it -, the food is excellent, and the service cheerful and warm-hearted. -- The inside consists of a number of smaller areas, each with traditional furniture and too light, not too dark. Outside there is... More

Have eaten here several times, but not for the last 8 years. The décor and style is still the same, but they have upgraded the food with more variety and less "heavy" than the "traditional Austrian". Service was excellent and very friendly on both occasions that we ate here on this visit. Very good beer and the Strudel was the... More

This place at its basic is pure and simple traditional Austrian fare. This does not mean the food is simple, just that this is no fancy fusion mish mash but the chance to experience traditional Austrian cuisine at its best. The décor and service is top notch and atmospheric. The food is out of this world. The goulash and roast... More

We walked in without a reservation around 5:00 (17:00). Welcomed and seated. Our waiter, Martin, was wonderful. Polite, helpful, and made us feel so welcome. Food was delicious. Only here in Vienna another day, but might go back. Highly recommend!

I had dinner at this restaurant with a friend. It is located in the heart of the historical part of the city. The service was excellent, professional and friendly. The décor is pleasant and comfortable. The food was high quality and while it was not cheap, it was good value for money. Highly recommended.

The food we got came in very big portions, the soup was fairly unimpressive, the mains were very tasty, the restaurant itself had a really nice atmosphere, very traditional. the service was excellent. the white chocolate stuffed profiteroles was a winner. good for traditional food. I would recommend this little joint.

This was recommended by someone who's lived here for many years. The food was good, the decor is lovely, and the staff were super friendly, a rarity in Viennese restaurants where most waiters are just plain rude! One of the few places we left a tip willingly.

We felt genuinely welcome at the Ofenloch. The restaurant gave an authentic Austrian impression without falling in the ridiculously touristic trap (the made in China coco clock type) and the staff was very sympathetic and attentive. The food was incredibly tasty and also felt genuinely Austrian. Our waiter even selected a red Austrian wine for us that went really well... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
