Lovely food, lovely price, lovely staff

For my first fine dining experience I was very impressed. The fixed menu was about 45 euros for 5 courses (each comprising of two dishes) plus an extra taster at the beginning and end of the meal. The food was diverse and mouth watering and we opted for the wines which fitted to each dish for... read more

You are still in our mind after few months, we visited you in November and had very good time. Your service and food experience basedon duets were very refreshing and interesting, out of 4, 4 of us still considere you as the best experience in Vienna considering Quality vs Cost. Merci

...I had to go to for the rest of my life, it would be my home town's Freyenstein. I am traveling the world but have yet to find a place that offers as carefully selected ingredients, especially herbs. You have to book in advance and be on time as all guests are basically served at the same time. You won't... More

Everything about the restaurant suggests an unusual dining experience. It is out of the way on a quiet side street. The restaurant has old style charm. The menu is fixed and serve two small courses at a time. We enjoyed it all. The upscale menu included an exotic stew of heart, lungs and sweetbreads that turned out to be superb.... More

I've eaten here several times and the food is always good. The concept is clever and simple: no choices, just 5-6 courses consisting of two small amuse-gueule style dishes each. The courtyard seating is nice too - so far, so good. However, the kitchen is evidently not capable of managing the flow of dishes, even though the menu is so... More

We had a very nice dining experience with friends in the courtyard of this lovely restaurant. Although this restaurant is off the beaten track (tram from Schottentor, then approx. 7 min walk), we enjoyed it very much in the midst of many locals. The atmosphere in the courtyard is very unique and relaxed, the food was excellent, the wines from... More

Based on multiple places with great reviews we made the 40 min. trip out for a special meal. First the good...the interior is cozy and romantic, the staff is friendly and welcoming.

Great value too. The wines selected by the restaurant to go with each course was well worth going for.

Neighborhood Profile
Wahring
The 18th district is the most inconspicuous of the listed neighborhoods. Where else can you still watch card players at a Viennese coffeehouse, or listen to authentic Viennese folk songs with a local audience? Like most respected Viennese neighborhoods, Währing has its own street market, Kutschkermarkt, where you can best feel its pulse. One of Währing’s loveliest outdoor destinations is the small garden palace and museum Geymüllerschlössel. The exquisite 19th century interior is spiced up by contemporary art installations curated by the Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art (MAK).
