Visiting s’Pfiff was a spontaneous decision when three other restaurants did not have free tables. Due to its location, it’s a tourist-oriented place, providing an opportunity to those staying in Vienna for the first time and for a short period to sample some average Viennese cuisine and then boast at home how great and authentic it was. Because of that, the goose is certainly not cooked on individual reservations, but at least it’s always available.

As à-la-carte geese go, it was not bad at all, not especially better or worse than the offering at Figls a few days earlier. To its advantage, the Pfiff’s goose had crispy skin. Unfortunately, my first bite landed on a piece of cartilage, which ruined the first impression somewhat, and cost the goose one rating point (sorry, goose).

At least at a first glance, s’Pfiff does not look as popular or well taken care of as Figls, its closest reference point, but compared to the winged disasters one can find in the city, the goose was absolutely acceptable.
