Unquestionably the place to eat in Vienna. This Michelin starred restaurant lived up to and surpassed our expectations. It's a lovely, small restaurant on a quiet side street. Beautiful interior. The owner was in residence the night we ate there and was very helpful with both food and wine selections. You can tell he really cares about every detail of... More

Although small, this charming place was quiet on an evening in July. We had the degustation menu with paired wines and were delighted. The food and wines were great and well matched. The servers were professional, yet very personable and informative. The place certainly merits it's Michelin star and then some.

We had already eaten in one of,the finest restaurants in vienna before we dined here. Frankly, I enjoyed this meal more. Every dish was delicious and classically prepared. The ambience is,lovely and the staff most professional. The prices are very fair for this city which is expensive. I highly recommend this restaurant .

Small, intimate restaurant. Great service and food. Wonderful ambiance (like being in a small, highly elite dinner club). Clientele seemed more local/official versus touristy (diplomats, government officials, business men and women). Great way to start a trip in Vienna.

This is one of the best value Michelin Star restaurants I’ve been to over the years. We always stay in this area of the city, so called around at lunchtime to book for the evening. It’s an old style restaurant, which is not surprising as it’s been on the go for some time, however the cooking is contemporary in style.... More

Bauer is one of the "old faithful restaurants" in Vienna. The menu consists of mainly Viennese specialties that are cooked to perfection. The wine list is among the top in Vienna and we never fail to discover something special. The atmosphere is cozy and the service friendly. Makes for a great dinner experience (or a very long business lunch!).

I came here for a romantic dinner, which is what I think this place was really created for. The food was tasty, but not memorable. A lot of effort had gone into presentation and one of the dishes was simply over tinkered with; style over substance. However, unlike some other reviewers here, we loved the setting and even the fact... More

One of a few Michelin star restaurants in Wien. Only Walter Bauer and Silvio Nickol from Michelin list were working on Saturday so we went there for dinner last week as we managed to get a table half an hour before dinner time. We went for the 5 courses tasting menu combined with wine pairing. The courses were excellent, except... More

We went to this restaurant in Vienna on Sept 23rd because it looked interesting and had a Michelin star. So much for a Michelin star being up to date. We sat down in what was a comfortable and pleasing room for what we thought would be a nice dinner considering the prices on the menu. We ordered wine and the... More

This is a very good restaurant! The service may be slow but not too slow to enjoy a well-prepared meal that was fantastic. We thought the staff was very good--we were not offered a soufflé as in some of the other reviews! They helped us choose a very enjoyable local wine. The truffle laced pasta was superb and the veal... More
