What a fun evening! This is a family operation with dad cooking in back and son working the service portion out front. We were seated in the first kitchen (a second one was behind another door) as the son noticed we were from out of town and thought we might enjoy the action. He was right! A very stylish place, with lots of thought thrown into every detail.
A wonderfully creative building located in a park in Vienna. It offers the options of a 6 or 7 course tasting or ordering a la carte. They also offer wine pairings for the tasting menus. Each course offers you 2 options and we both choose differently, to once again try the most of what they offer.
A tasty gem of a restaurant and a real bargain at lunch! Fine service and fun wall murals along with a cozy interior made it a relaxing dining experience – and all under the watchful eye of longtime owner Bauer. The goose liver was outstanding. The homemade noodles were also fabulous and should have been made better with fresh shavings of white Alba truffles but unfortunately someone had forgotten to properly clean this one and it threw off grit into the otherwise stellar dish. We had their lunch special menu and portions were large enough we didn’t want to order dessert and in keeping with their service level they brought us a lovely little cake to finish.
This beautiful restaurant is located in the Palais Coburg, a magnificently restored building that is now a hotel of suites. The whole place exudes elegance and the restaurant delivered a product in keeping with excellent food and service. Named for the chef, Silvio Nickel, he visited the dining room briefly but was there when we finally finished our meal. All meals starts with about 4 amuse bouche and end with a plate of petit fours. In between you can chose 5 to 9 courses, but the waiter warns you that the plates are not scaled if you order more, so we stuck to 5 and were perfectly full by leaving.
Tafelspitz or boiled beef is a a regular offering in Vienna and this is the place to get it. They offer more variations of the cut of beef than anybody else. It is a large place and there is definitely a system to it. They give you pictures and instructions on how it is all eaten and are quick to get to your table to refill your plate from the serving dishes.
A little neighborhood gem of a restaurant with hearty food of the region. The appetizers alone were enough to make a meal of but it did appear that the ‘locals’ had some other smaller options on the German menu. The fried chicken livers were hot, crisp and tasty especially with the moist potato salad.
Our first night in Vienna and with a bit of jet lag we took on this nice little chef owned place. They offer 2 tasting menus of 4 or 6 courses with wine pairings and we opted to each have one of the 6 course tastings with pairings. Thus the photos look like a lot more food and wine than we consumed individually. Overall tasty food and nice service but not either in an outstanding category.
