I eat a lot of meals on restaurants, try to find good restaurants but rarely do fine dining. Coming from a poor memory this is the best I can remember in a long time, maybe the best dinner I've ever had. A service that is exactly how it should be, attentive, fast and discreet. The food is not overly complicated... More

Three years ago, we went to Steirereck for an anniversary dinner. It was wonderful and clearly showed why it is considered one of the best in the world. This time, very different. Our reservation was made several months before and when we arrived for an 8:00 dinner, we were told our table was not ready (still occupied). Understandable. It happens,... More

While I'm aware that their restaurant upstairs is in the world's best restaurant list, we booked into the casual restaurant downstairs since we weren't in the mood for a fancy dinner. What a lovely space. It's on the edge of a canal and in the park, so it's a good place to people watch. The staff were very attentive and... More

We came with high expectation after having noticed many awards. The receptionist at arrival was warm and friendly but that was all. The rest of the crew was so proud and snobbish. The restaurant was recently re-opened in new venue with the feel of modern and space. Open kitchen was spacious and guests can have a look. Large selection of... More

I've now had dinner here twice. And well worth a third and fourth visit. It's not for the faint of heart when it comes to the bill, but you do get what you pay for. I adore the pork dish, but what sticks in my mind is the vast array of cheeses and unlike in the US where we tend... More

This is obviously a fine restaurant. For me, the chef was trying too hard to create dishes that were so unusual that they often lacked substance. Some of the courses were excellent like the lamb. Others, like the dessert, were mediocre. Some of the staff are lovely and most professional. We were seated very close to the kitchen and could,observe... More

The welcome on arrival was warm and friendly. We had the tasting menu with wine flight,most of the parings were excellent with a firm lean towards showcasing Austrian wine. The bread and cheese trolleys were exceptional and the staff looking after them full of knowledge and had obvious love of their products as did the sommelier. However some of the... More

This is family-owned restaurant run by Chef Heinz Reitbauer and his lovely wife, Birgit, who are clearly perfectionists. We booked a table for lunch well in advance as we knew this restaurant was one we should not miss during our trip to Vienna. My wife and I ordered the degustation menu and our children (13 and 10 yrs old) had... More
