Vienna has many traditional restaurants. Some of them are simple which can be nice for certain occasions. Others are much more upscale which somehow looses the Vienna charm and can make them interchangeable with other leading restaurants around the world. Restaurant Vestibul is somehow in the middle of the two extremes. Restaurant Vestibul is located in a very nice room... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend who knows Vienna well and were really very impressed. The restaurant is marble clad but home how remains intimate. The food was extraordinarily good and the service exemplary. Having not tried the signature lobster and cabbage we felt compelled to return the following night and were not disappointed. It is quite pricey... More

Wien ist anders, Vienna is different. That is what you will hear quite often in this wonderful city. It may be used to explain the wonderful, but also to excuse what is not so wonderful. This restaurant seems to have it all. Splendid location, beautiful interior, great food. And smoke. Sure, there is a non smoking section, but the connection... More

A perfect ending to a wonderful city break to... More

Came here having read all the reviews beforehand. We therefore tried the chef's signature lobster and cabbage dish. It was very good, as was the schnitzel. With the lovely bread choices we didn't need dessert, although the options looked very good. My only grumble, if any, was our table was right next to the main door. That took away most... More

All that's great about Austrian food with a sophisticated modern twist. Chef Christian's personal chat at the table made it an even more memorable evening.

The first booked meal of a holiday with my father. Simply outstanding. Service was exemplary. Food had tradition at its heart but a modern interpretation done extremely well. The carp with parsnip, horseradish and sprouts is one of the best plates of food I have eaten. Do not miss this place.

Some restaurant reviews are easy and this is one of them. I'm not going to over complicate it. Food is top notch, the chef's signature dish of lobster with creamed cabbage is brilliant. I let the waiter talk me into the creamed peanut and mandarin dessert and was grateful. The chef/proprietor serves birthday cake,clears tables and is seemingly omnipresent. How... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
