Fodor's Review

Hidden away in one of the quietest quarters of historic Vienna, this charming and unpretentious Michelin-starred restaurant serves the very best in traditional cuisine. Even the everyman Leberkäse—an artery-blocking loaf of pork, bacon, corned beef, and onions—is turned into a delectable delight (and served with a dash of mustard). More modern and international fare, such as foie gras with confits and brioche, are specialties not to be missed. The quality-crazy owner has over the years encouraged some of Austria's greatest chefs, including Christian Domschitz and Michael Feuerbrand, to perform their very best in his kitchen, using only the finest ingredients. The best Austrian wines—including reds Gradenthal and Blaufrankisch, and white Gruener Veltliner—and friendly service make this a winner.
