We were a group of French friends and we never felt welcome from the moment we entered the restaurant to the moment we left. The food was ok to good depending on what we had chosen, but the waiter was ultra rude to us, didn't give us a single smile, was super grumpy and arrogant, he made a mistake with... More

I've been to Porterhouse on two different trips to Vienna with a few years between them, and I plan to return in July. Good Austrian food, cozy, old fashioned atmosphere and a great wine list. It's a great spot for dates or dinners with friends, just off of Stephansplatz.

Called in by chance and were lucky to get a table for two. One starter - goose liver top class. We had wild boar ragout and sliced beef in peppercorn sauce, very good indeed. Apple pie to finish. The service was very traditional but spot on. All in all, the best meal we had in Vienna

The Porterhouse restaurante offers a decent food for a decent price and a good service. Nothing outstanding, just a regular restaurant where you can stop for lunch.

We visited Porterhouse originally, not on recommendation, but because we happened upon it one freezing Viennese December night. We felt like we had found a gem of a place : we were seated in the smoking area which suited us perfectly and the room was cosy with a beautiful bar. Service was friendly and attentive and food was excellent- we... More

Really surprised by the quality of the food here. I found the restaurant almost empty and i never heard about it, so i was not expecting much.. i was just super-hungry. But result was amazing. Quality of food is very high, even compared with more "famous" alternatives around the corner :) The bad side was the service and the atmosphere,... More

I had sea bass, my wife had fried large prawns. My friends had beef steak and salmon steak. Food and appetizers were high quality and tasty.

Stumbled across this place by accident and quite glad we did. The waiter was (once again a bit superior with us), which appears to be a trait in Vienna. However, he did melt a bit as we got further acquainted. A good selection of food on offer, and when it came everyone enjoyed it. Service was fine and no complaints.

The recommended to us with t eh promise the food was really good. Well, the service was great. Food was very badly presented and the the sauces of our steaks were like if they were taken out of a package, the ones that come as dried power you add water to it. The outside area is quite pleasant. All in... 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.
