I’m asking myself whether this is really the right name for a restaurant in a Germanic speaking world… nothing like a bit of toilet humour to finish off the year! 😀 Guten Rutsch everyone! See you next year!
This place. Finally! I’ve been wanting to try it for ages, and I decided to go there for my birthday. It was truly amazing.
This quirky circus slaughterhouse style restaurant is just a hop and a skip away from the opera house, on Opernring 11. They specialise in:
And cheese cake.
Yum! I was in heaven. I also had amazing company, of course. 🙂 The staff (all dressed in leather aprons) were super friendly, and the prices were absolutely tolerable.
They’ve even got a range(!) of veggie burgers, my friend here got the haloumi burger, but they also have corn burgers and black bean burgers.
The only downside: I ate so much that I just can’t move right now…. 😛
I can wholeheartedly recommend this place!
This restaurant is one of the most impressive looking ones in Vienna, in my opinion. It’s located out by Alte Donau.
There is so much detail put into it, all the way down to the roof tiles and interior decor. But really the most impressive sight is the garden. Which is where we spent yesterday evening.
The centrepiece of the garden is the mossy fountain in the middle of the fish pond. I really really like it!
There is also a quite impressive gazebo in the garden, which we didn’t inspect more closely as we were too busy eating, drinking and celebrating my friend’s birthday.
The food was also really great. I had sweet and sour pork, which was the best I’ve had in Vienna so far. Not quite as awesome as the one in NZ, but really I was satisfied and I enjoyed it immensely.
As the light drained out of the sky giving way to a very bright moon, we made our way back home, very full, content, and sleepy from the food. 🙂
I finally tried out this place, having cycled past it a lot of times. It is located on the Donaukanal, just next to Badeschiff. It’s an American style BBQ restaurant. Something I really enjoyed was their selection of IPAs!! Hello, and YUM!! Indian Pale Ale is hard to come by in Vienna in general, and they had a cool selection. Not that cheap though, with the Sierra Nevada on the bottom end of the price scale at 4,90€. But worth it. Unfortunately I didn’t whip up my phone to take a picture of the food.. But I can assure you it was yummy! I had the pulled pork sandwich with kimchi, and a side of rocket and tomato salad. To die for. Portions are not huge, but they fill you up. And I guess that’s the most important thing about eating. This is the view when you’re leaning back satisfied, sipping your beer after a nice meal. I can recommend this place, yes.
I saw this place a while ago, and always wanted to try it. Yesterday we finally had a chance to! It’s located right next to the Altes AKH, on Spitalgasse. And boy do they make good pies. And they’re cute too!
Not actually a brewery, but they do order a specially made beer from Ottakring. We tried it yesterday for some pub food, and it was Awesome. Good wedges! That’s almost hard to come by in Vienna. I had a nice burger, my love had a Columbus pfandl..both were yummy. Can recommend!
It’s in the 10th district at Columbusplatz.
A really good place for some refreshments this arvo. Having visitors is great for getting out and about in the city, and today we found ourselves in need of feeding and watering when we were close to the Museumsquartier. Rather than trying to find a reasonable place around Hofburg, we decided to head to MQ. This cafe is nice, fairly ok priced (though not budget), and had nice teas and other beverages. I was also fascinated by the little dollhouse displays on the wall – super cute!
This weekend, we finally managed to stop by our local cafe for lunch. And it’s just as cute looking on the inside as from the outside. 🙂 It reminds me of the more famous restaurants like cafe Sperl, but it’s much more hidden away, and quiet. The food was pretty ok, servings are not huge but still they taste pretty nice. I might return here to work, it seems like a great atmosphere for working and people-watching. Well, during busier hours. 🙂
It’s cafe Goldegg, by the way.
This is a pub in the 3rd district that I’ve been wanting to go to for AGES. It looks quite inconspicuous, but they have a really kickass selection of beers on tap and bottled, just check out their drinks menu. Some day soon I WILL CHECK IT OUT!!!
The beer from 7Stern Bräu is amongst the most amazing that can be found in Vienna. Located close to Mariahilferstrasse, about one block into the 7th district. Their IPA is really awesome, and among the few IPAs that can be found in Vienna. I’d higly recommend it. They brew other varieties as well, such as chili beer (crazy spicy), Rauchbeer (inspired by the Bamberger Rauchbeer) and a traditional Märzen.. just to mention some. The food is good too, by the way… 🙂
Never been to this place before I was dragged along by a friend, turns out they have the best sushi I’ve ever had in Vienna. It’s just next to Naschmarkt on Rechte Wienzeile, called Hanil. I was so sick of half-ok sushi with old ingredients or rice that’s just not right or seaweed sheets that are too chewy… this place gets it ALL right. I’m not even sure if I should have told you that… ;P
I bring everyone who visits me to this place. It’s not very touristy, but they do have menus in English. They have fantastic Austrian food, and at good prices (7-10 euro for the good mains, some are more expensive but not many). They brew their own beer. I love the place.
Today I’m bringing my friend Annika from NZ here. 🙂
