    This place is a massive greenhouse turned restaurant. We had the schnitzel and it was simply incredible! They have an outstanding selection of wines as well. Worth the visit.

    Outstanding venue. Very nice service (we were served in french by a dedicated bilingual waitress!) and very good and original food. All of that for a fair price considering the package! + : nice music

    It has been a while since I've been to a place with such a great wine list. The food was good too, but the austrian organic amber wine was the star.

    A beautiful Jugendstil palm house. Very spacious and very green. Tasty food, really nice wines. Amazing place to seat outside when sun's shining. Baby changing table is available downstairs next to WC

    You could spend a whole day at Palmenhaus! Breakfast, lunch, cakes - everything is really good. If you are lucky, you'll get a table on the terrace!

    I love the garden concept! We had the seafood mixed grill - enjoyed it a lot - fresh and not overcooked! The first Vienna latte I had during my trip!

    An outstanding restaurant in a chummy greenhouse! The food was exquisite(pumpkin soup with pastas, great cheese selection, awesome Topfen) and the waiter very welcoming! Definitely a place to visit!!

    Nice restaurant nestled on one side of a park. Lots of outside seating and not a car to be seen! The schnitzel was excellent and salads were very tasty! Service also very friendly.....

    Wonderful space full of plants. The food is delicious, try their wiener schnitzel or the scallops. It is a little bit more expensive than a regular restaurant but it's worth it

    Really unique place and very friendly staff. Had amazing Austrian Pinot Noir here but the food just didn't make the cut. Terrible value as well. Extra points for playing Wes Montgomery though.

    The Palmenhaus (0043 1 533 10 33;, is a magnificent palm tree-filled glasshouse/café/bar/restaurant in the Hofburg Palace gardens and popular with visitors and the Viennese alike.

    Get your Proseccos for happy hour and watch the Habsburg Palace without being too picky about the food which is mediocre. Beautiful atmosphere coupled with the greenhouse and the park set forth.

    This place lives off its location next to the Burggarten park. Not exactly cheap, but a nice place to enjoy the sun.

    Looking to sample small-batch Viennese whites? Head to Palmenhaus, in the Burggarten, which sources wines from vineyards within the city limits.

    Real schnitzel made of beef is delicious. Salad sauce was even better than schnitzel. One of the best salads I have ever tasted

    The restaurant offers both infoor seating in a glass house (!) and outdoor seating looking over a park. The food was reasonable (althougj the pasta was amazing). Staff weren't very friendly.

    The original Wienerschnitzel made of veal is ok, but nothing special. The lemonade is great, very refreshing. The staff is really nice.

    Partial disappointment revisiting it after 4 years(when we were delighted). Service extremely slow. The good:seabream starter and steak dish were very tasty. The bad: uneatable(gummy) fish curry...

    (Continued)....the chocolate cake was an uninventive microwave warmed up piece of sponge from three days ago with canned cherries...too bad it deteriorated so much.
