On a warm sunny spring day while strolling through Durnstein we happened upon Sanger-Blondel and its beautiful outdoor terrace. It was all perfect - the ambiance of the terrace; the view of the nearby church; the flowers throughout; the service; and especially the food.
We tried a special drink of apricot juice with a sparkling version of the local Gruner Veltliner wine - very nice. To start a bowl of broccoli soup and smoked trout, with a subtle horseradish cream. For our main course my wife (a vegetarian) enjoyed Gemuselaibach - nicely prepared vegetable patties with parsely potatoes, and for me Wachauer Rostbraten, roast sirloin with mushrooms, apricots, wine and roasted potatoes - extremely good. In fact everything we had was very well prepared; very tasty.
A glass of wine each and a bottle of mineral water - total $51.10 euros - excellent value for the quality of food and service. Our meal at Sanger-Blondel was one of the most memorable of our trip. We highly recommend a stop if in Durnstein.
