The Stiegl-Ambulanz, “the ambulance”, in the huge compound of the Altes AKH, Vienna’s old university clinic next to the famous University of Vienna, is a great place to meet friends and have a good time. Here you can get many things, ranging from a Stiegl Beer (a famous Austrian Beer) to a delicious meal, as this place is a pub with a fine lounge next to the big coppers for brewing as well as a restaurant at the same time. The food is delicious and the beer as well and the ambience. The Stiegl-Ambulanz is separated in two parts, one is non-smoking and the other is the lounge and the corner, which is still a smoking area, at least until May 2018 according to Austrian Law.
Our event was private so the whole place was reserved for this reason and the delicious food prepared and to choose from plates. So we were free to arrange our meals to our liking. But normally the Stiegl-Ambulanz is a restaurant where you can order your food at the waiter from a the menu. We had Wiener Schnitzel, Schweinsbraten, all kinds of salads, bread dumplings, sauerkraut, noodles, plates with various sorts of cheese, and the dessert, which were a sweet cheese strudel, the Topfenstrudel, Austria is famous for.
The staff is friendly and the opening hours are remarkable as weekdays the Stiegl-Ambulanz is open until midnight and on weekends (Fridays and Saturdays) even until 01:00 am.
