Favourite Restaurants in Vienna
Any suggestions of good restaurants in Vienna?

Thank you for the suggestion. At first I was not sure what &quot;stomach&quot; was but now I see it is a restaurant specializing in beef. Thanks for the recommendation. Any more?

Boheme has opera on their music and an excellent wine list-good varietals available by the glass. The food is excellent. For lunch, try the cafe in the Albertina (run by Do&amp;Co). The young kitchen staff favors salsa and merengue on their background music-sit in the entrance hall (two tables there.) Their chicken Caesar salad was extraordinary but simple. For the late afternoon sugar boost- Cafe Diglas just behind the Stephansdom. Early evening piano entertainment several days in the week. When you leave by the front door, turn right and go one block (approx) to a sinful little candy store with a chance to pick your assorted truffles from the display. I am getting hungry as I write full of memories of calories past.

Lux for food
Centipede for fun

What is the best restaurant in Vienna if money is no object? If you could include an estimated price for dinner (no alchohol) that would be great.

Two of the best are usually considered to be Korso, in the Hotel Bristol
An elegant restaurant, perfect service, very 'olde worlde'

and the one I give the edge to,
Assuming you are a foodie, and don’t mind spending a great deal, this is one of those rare dining experiences. Service perfectly attentive but not intrusive, pace leisurely, perhaps a tad too leisurely but that’s part of the experience. The bread cart laden with all sorts of baked offerings was an experience in itself, so was the wine list. There were two price fixed menus each with five courses, one “traditional” and one more contemporary. I don't know their current prices, perhaps the website will help.

I agree that Stomach has an excellent reputation, it will be more trendy and cutting-edge on food than the two I've mentioned

Great suggestions! Thanks for your replies. Any suggestions on concerts?

Charley1965 Jul 13th, 2005 03:25 AM

I asked a the same question a few days ago! See this thread;tid=34648674

kate12 Jul 13th, 2005 04:44 AM

Thanks very much Charley. I had missed your thread and it was very helpful. I will definately try some of the suggestions.

I just got back from Vienna, and I have 3 words for you: Steirereck, Steirereck, Steirereck. Check out the bathroom when you're there (Willy Wonka?).

Charley1965 Jul 22nd, 2005 01:45 AM

We have Steirereck booked for December. What's the location like? Come on, tell us about the bathroom!

BTilke Jul 22nd, 2005 02:17 AM

I ate at Steierereck a few months ago, shortly after it had opened in its new location. The bathroom is in the basement, you walk &quot;through&quot; a waterfall to get there. The bathrooms aren't marked his or hers or ladies or gentlemen, etc., they have two different types of crowns.

Charley1965 Jul 22nd, 2005 02:40 AM

Oh right, I see! I understand the Wonka reference now. I will have to check out the loos prior to having some wine or else I may get the crowns confused!

And for a lunch or a simple snack, you must try Nordsee. Best fast food on the planet. The herring sandwiches are especially good, but you can get lots of seafood things up to and including a whole lobster.

Have three favorite ristorantes for Wien:
1.The DONNERBRUNNER located on the second floor of within the
Hotel Europa in the inner ring.
2.Weiner Rathauskeller, Rathausplatz, 1
3.Cantinetta Antinori, Josomir-Gott Strasse, 3/5..

For lighter dinners might also suggest
a tavern in Grinzing.. rjv

kate12 Jul 22nd, 2005 08:44 AM

thanks for all the replies. sounds like we will enjoy eating in vienna. Any more suggestions....always welcome

LeeParis Jul 22nd, 2005 09:29 AM

One restaurant we enjoyed in Vienna is Purstner's. They have a web site - It's located within the Ring and was rather fun as our booth was part of a cask cut in half. Oh yes...the food was good, too!
