Neighbourhood: Inner City
Description: A restaurant thas is, in our humble opinion, unique not only in Vienna, but in the whole of Austria. However, we also offer something extra: a permanent exhibition of beer culture which consists of 20 000 kinds of beermats and beer cans.

We visited Bier & Bierli as a group of 6 on a Sunday evening having just arrived in Vienna. We wanted somewhere that served traditional food in a relaxed atmosphere and this was spot on. It's something of a cross between pub and restaurant. The beer is good although the selection on tap is somewhat limited. The food is good too - nothing special but good portions of hearty local-style dishes such as schnitzel and Gröstl.

We had a large table in an annex just off the main restaurant to ourselves which was great. We stayed for a couple of hours after eating, ordered more beer and played a few games of cards.

All in all, a very good introduction to Vienna and I'd definitely go back (but I'd be even more tempted if the beer selection was more varied)!

Worst place ever. The waiters were terrible. We came in and nobody helpt us. We looked for a table and asked if t was okay if we sat there. It took 15 minutes before we got the menu. We hoped for special beers, but unfortunately they don’t have many choice. I asked for a dunkel weisse beer, but the waiter sad angy that he didn’t have it and went mad when I asked for another beer. He threw the menu on the table and said we should check the menu instead of asking him. When we walked out whitout ordening any drinks, another waiter just said “oh well sorry, goodbye!”. Didnt even bother to ask what was wrong and why we left.

This interesting decorated bar cum restaurant is well located and was quite busy at 6pm when we entered for an early dinner before attending a concert. We both had Grostl (bacon, onion and potato fry-up) which was delicious. A couple of cups of Gluhwein to warm us up and a decent bottle of wine and two Grostl all for €45.

Great Food! Need more workers as there were only two on staff, but they were definitely kind and polite. Very helpful as my friend and I only spoke english and not german. If i'm ever in the area again I know where to get a good reasonably priced meal!

We just walked off the street into this place. It turned out to be a very pleasant experience. Good beer, tasty food, and very attentive waiting staff really sums it all up. The atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming. Will definately return again someday.
