Restaurants in Vienna

Jump to last reply

We will be in Vienna for a couple days in late May and would like recommendations for gemütlichkeit restaurants and beer gardens. Thanks for suggestions.

    I am afraid your request is rather broad. "Gemütlichkeit" is not a filter, but rather, a personal feeling. A restaurant that makes one person feel cozy, comfortable, and happy is not always the same for another; and often, Gemütlichkeit is best appreciated with a group of good friends. On warm summer weekend evenings we will meet friends at a favorite heuriger (wine tavern) and spend the evening at an old wooden table, enjoying the local wine and eating dark bread topped with Schmaltz (lard) or Liptauer (spicy cheese spread); other of our friends find the same pleasure at a white-linen covered table restaurant.

    In late May most of the heurigen will be open, with varying schedules; some open only in the evening or only on weekends, etc. The Grinzing, Heiligenstadt, and Nußdorf areas of Vienna (on the northern edge near the vineyards) offer the most choices. Our favorite is Kierlinger. Across the 19th district (the other side of the vineyards) along Neustift am Walde you will find many heurigen, as well, with beautiful gardens that make for a pleasant dining experience. In general, though, avoid the ones where the tour busses stop.

    Biergartens are not as common in Vienna as heurigen; Bamkraxler and Schweizerhaus are two that come to mind, and I'm sure others will chime in with their recommendations. The first is extremely child-friendly (that is, expect little ones to be running around); and the second is rather upscale and usually requires reservations.

    I hope this is helpful.
