Leckeres Schnitzel nur schade, dass es in der Wollzeile kein Kalbsschnitzel gab.
27 September 2019
Now in its fourth generation the Viennese restaurant Figlmüller, in the Wollzeile behind the St Stephen's Cathedral, still serves its renowned schnitzel. Sartorially elegant in timeless tuxedos, expert waiters bring the generously-sized tender yet crispy specialities to your table.
Other Austrian culinary classics can be found on the menu at Figlmüller, such as the Wiener Tafelspitz (boiled beef) with a chive sauce, apple horseradish and roast potatoes, alongside veal goulash with butter dumplings. However, there is really only one dish on everyone’s lips: the Figlmüller Schnitzel. Their speciality, created solely with the best meat cut called the rose or tenderloin, measures around 30cm in diametre and is covered in very special “imperial” breadcrumbs from Austrian emperor rolls, baked especially for Figlmüller.
The original restaurant in Vienna was opened by Johann Figlmüller as a wine tavern on the Wollzeile, behind the St Stephen’s Cathedral. The traditional charm and welcoming atmosphere still thrives today and guests love nothing more than a good chat over their schnitzel.
The restaurant on Wollzeile is just a stone’s throw from the St Stephen’s Cathedral in the heart of Vienna’s historic city centre. The Figlmüller Wollzeile restaurant is two minutes’ walk from Stephansplatz U-Bahn station and bus stop.

The restaurant is super authentic and has a lot of history to it which is great. Due to their popularity they try to get as many people in as possible which means that staying to sit and chill is not really an option. The food was amazing and the portions were large. We were able to eat from it for two following days. Would always go back for the best Schnitzel in town!

Nachdem das Lokal wohl sehr gefragt ist, herrscht ein reges Treiben.
Fast schon hektisch. Das ist schade.

Das bekannteste und wirklich besondere Wiener Schnitzel gibt es halt eben nur beim Figlmüller!
Komme immer wieder gerne hier her und kann das jedem weiterempfehlen.

We booked a table with great expectation for a veal Schnitzel after almost 35 years since our many previous visits in Figlmuller. To our disappointment Wollzeile branch serves only pork. All in all the visit was rated by us last of our four restaurant visits in Vienna. Also legends cannot live only by past reputation.
