The Schottenhof specializes in the dishes for those who cannot eat wheat, protein, lactose, etc. Fortunately, their spare ribs (summer special; they are normally not on the menu) are anything but healthy. In fact, they are much fatter than average, and maybe that’s why the meat, though tender, does not separate from the bones very well. The ribs are not super-well marinated, but they are marinated, which immediately distinguishes them favorably from the competition. On the other hand, the sauces are quite disastrous, looking and tasting more like soups, and not very thick soups either. The only other thing on the plate was fried potatoes; instead of decorating the plate with salad leaves and onions, they simply served a small mixed salad. This was logical, but appeared a bit of a lazy solution.
The restaurant, located in the middle of Wienerwald, is quite enjoyable, though the busy street nearby ensures that there is quite a lot of noise. Something tells me it might serve good game or even an acceptable goose, but their ribs, though not disgusting, are rather unexceptional.
