Neighbourhood favourite, Fischer’s, is an informal café-restaurant found at the top of Marylebone High Street. Warmly evocative of Vienna in the early twentieth century, Fischer’s is buzzing from breakfast through until late, seven days a week. A classic Viennese menu is offered, including an extensive choice of salads, schnitzels, brötchen, strudels, konditorei, biscuits, ice cream coupes and hot chocolates. With Austrian neighbourhood charm, the food utilises simple but high quality ingredients, immaculately presented.

As usual excellent food and service
Our waitress appeared a little uncertain and nervous other than that a first class meal

Buzzy Central European brasserie. Extensive menu . When busy can be noisy,but we had asked for a quiet table and we got one. Not cheap but worth it.

Ooh I love Fischer’s. It’s hard to believe it hasn’t been open for 50 years as the decor cleverly gives it a sense of a history and an authentic of a mittel European cafe. The food is a mix of Austrian, Scandinavian and Alsatian food. I had the chopped liver which was wonderful and a large portion. They also have all day brunch options. Service is attentive and friendly and it was all washed down with a bottle of gruner veltliner which was wonderful. Great spot on Marylebone High Street.

The chicken schnitzel seemed to be battered not breaded & was chewy & tasteless.
The waiter was sullen & disinterested & made us feel unwelcome .
The high price did not reflect the quality of the food or the service

The food is extremely good at Fischers. Combine that with a relaxing, warm, brasserie-esque atmosphere and a few cocktails and you are good to go.

For some reason the experience this time was rather poor, particularly compared to previous evenings whic had been fantastic. Hopefully just an "off night."

I love Fischers and would recommend it. However, the quality of the food didn't seem quite as good as last time I visited some months ago - and it's not a cheap restaurant. The pancake in the kaisershmarrn just seemed a bit soggy and the fruit not quite cooked and sweet. Perhaps Chef was having an off night? But as always, the service and the atmosphere were lovely.

Worth a visit for the unusual Vienne cafe ambience. Brunch menu was previously excellent. A bit disappointing on this occasion as crab salad had hardly any crab in. In retrospect should have complained but it was birthday celebration. Steak was ok but nothing special. Definitely worth a try but won’t be a regular haunt for me.

We are frequent diners at Fischer’s and visited the last two Saturdays for brunch. Tables were left very dirty after customers had left and service was not to the standard we typically would see at Fischer’s. We usually don’t visit for brunch so perhaps this is typical.

Always a treat to have dinner at Fischers so we went with friends for our anniversary, and we weren't disappointed. I always order the same thing, which I know is daft but I can't risk less gorgeousness than usual. I had mustard herring with rye bread, followed by veal schnitzel; we have this down to a fine art - we order one regular and one large schnitzel, which is a perfect amount for 2 to share. It comes with a little jug of super-tasty jus. Pudding was a Sacher torte for our friends, and a selection of nut ice-creams for us. It was all delicious. What I like about Fischers - apart from the consistently excellent food - is the cosy but smart ambience, the warm welcome, and the attention to detail - they remembered my favourite table. It was a bit noisier than usual this time, but hey, it was Sunday night and the restau was full. Top marks!

Truly fabulous breakfast spot when in the area. We come for the rosti pastrami with a poached egg and mustard hollandaise, My partners egg was hard so we requested another one. Great service usually but the staff seemed a little understaffed as it was hard to get attention numerous times. We will return.

Yes this was really disappointing. The food is just so average. You feel because of the expense and effort in creating an authentic Austrian environment and the prices and quantity of nicely turned out staff not to mention being owned by a couple of top restauranteurs that it would be rather special. But sadly not a bit of it. Whoever is managing and cooking lacks any love, passion or attention to detail. I think it only survives because the locals have few other choices. We won't be back.

Initial impression of decor on entry was cosy and warm, however we were seated at a table that really should not have been there. It was squished so tightly to the abutting tables that the waiter's behind was practically sitting on our table when he was taking the order for the table next to us. On our other side was a corner table so close that I had to move my chair every time one of them needed to get up and go to the bathroom etc. It was so disruptive to our meal and extremely unpleasant. The food selection was wonderful but unfortunately everything from the spaetzle to the sausages and sauerkraut were very bland while the soup was way too salty. We couldn't wait to leave!
