Make sure you take time to inspect the wine list!

We've eaten here twice in as many years, and the food is fabulous. (The wine list is beyond fabulous!) Our second visit was not quite as good as the first, I think mainly because the head chef had changed and the latest incumbent had a great passion of chlorophyll reductions, which I'm not sure I... read more

7 course tastingmenu with accompanying winemenu at Silvio Nickol Palais Coburg 29/7-15. Wonderful and highly recommendable experience from the moment we were "beamed up" to the restaurant in the beautiful palace's elevator, and till we left again having visited the kitchen and shaken hands with Silvio himself.

This was our second visit to this restaurant, about 4 years apart. The food has gotten even better than we recall from our prior visit. It is very creative, non-obvious flavor combinations (foie gras wrapped in carrot) and incredibly beautiful presentations (lots of use of tweezers!). The wine list is vast, and there are a number of very expensive bottles,... More

We arrived under tight security for our last night in Vienna. Nothing to do with us - but the Iranian nuclear deal talks were going on so there were reporters everywhere.

Food and wine list excellent. Portions are a little small, if there is a man to dinner, tasting is ok. We can be accessed Silvia Nicol kitchen, cleanliness and organization at a high level.

This is a distinct Michelin two star experience. It has to deliver, and it does. The room is very, very decorated and takes some getting used to. The set up gives each table a lot of distance.

Fantastic food, top quality wines and excellent service. We went for a 7 course taster menu with wines and food was faultless throughout. Well thought out dishes that were different and interesting flavours and combinations and decently matched local wines. Also had the novelty of a police escort as we arrived during the nuclear talks! Definitely worth a visit

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood 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 center. 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.
