About our Restaurant!

Since about 50 years the ‚Fromme Helene‘ offers you good viennese cuisine and friendly staff.
Michael Vogel owns the ‘Fromme Helene’ since 1992 and runs it with great dedication and passion.
As the son of Peter Vogel and Gertraud Jesserer he grew up with actors which you can see in his restaurant with many pictures, posters, etc
His father Peter Vogel was an actor. Many people remember him as the first ‘Kottan’ in ‘Kottan ermittelt’ – a famous Austrian TV-series. But he did numerous film and theatre productions as well – as actor and director in the ‘Theater in der Josefstadt’.

His mother Gertraud Jesserer can look back on a long successfully career as a theatre, cinema and TV actress. She was acting at the ‘Deutschen Schauspielhaus’ in Hamburg, ‘Wiener Burgtheater’ in Vienna, the ‘Münchner Kammerspiele’ in Munich – and many more. Trough her sophisticated acting she was honored with many awards.
Rudolf Vogel – his grandfather – was also a famous and successful actor. He was acting at the ‘Landesbühne München, ‘Staatstheater’ and the ‘Münchner Kammerspiele’. He did several film productions as well.
Michaels brother – Nikolas Vogel – was an actor and camera man who participates some great film productions.
Trough the long successful history of the family it is not unusual that you meet famous actors in the ‘Fromme Helene’ and that some of them are habitués.

Lidia Vogel – Michaels wife – lends a hand in the kitchen. Due to her roots in Poland we can offer you some polish specialties (for example: Pierogi).
Because of the friendly regular ‘Fromme Helene’-team and the cozy ambiance it feels like being at home.
