Having had some outstanding dinners here, I now tried their set-menu at lunchtime for the second time. The same outstanding quality and presentation at a very moderate price (€ 19,50 for three courses) making this probably the best deal for foodies at lunchtime in Vienna....Service was very nice but rather slow. Not the perfect place if you're in a hurry, but highly recommended if you're after a gourmet-lunch in a relaxed atmosphere.More
Not far away from the city center (15 minutes walk) and close to Schloss Belvedere, Leontine offers a small, but well-balanced carte.
We had the 3-course lunch menu for €19,50 - well worth the money. Beautifully presented and very well cooked.
The wine selection is...also very nice, with some interesting French selections. Service was friendly, but a bit "French" (thus not a 5-star rating).
Next time we will come for dinner.More
This place is a real gem. The atmosphere is nice and relaxed, the team is friendly, young and motivated and the food is heavenly (modern-french). Their 5-course set-menu at dinner time is outstanding value and at reasonable prices, they offer a wide range of French...wines rarely offered here in Austria. We visited twice during the last couple of weeks. Highly recommended.More
I like who the old restaurant has been refurbished, it has a friendly atmosphere although it looks more similar to a modernized Vienna-Beisl than a French bistro. The service was excellent, very friendly and competent. The short list of open wines is a good choice...to try out some tasty French wines. The chef's style is international cuisine with a French twist, and it is definitely well above average. We had a very relaxed lunch there.More
We had a business lunch there and expected a bit more "French style" though I can confirm that the cuisine was quite "haute".
When entering this place you immediately had the feeling to enter a canteen or a simple "Wirtshaus" and that your clothes would...stink brutally after leaving this place again (which was the case). More than that it was quite cold and you didn´t wanna get off the jacket ...
The food was really nice and delicious, but as the chairs were uncomfortable and you hardly had space between the table and the wall in your back you could not move a lot. Since then I noticed that I kick back my head when laughing loud .... this REALLY hurt! So if you feel like being in a sardine can, it is just not possible to enjoy the food.
The staff was nice, but they could hardly move around the table either and everyone had to move whenever they served food. And we also noticed that the order how they are serving is not the traditional way, like age, gender a.s.o it was rather like cherry picking. One plate recived this person then another one on the other side ... just no clear etiquette at all.
I am glad that the food was delicious but it would not be enough for making me going to this place again ... far too uncomfortable.More
This is a new French bistro-type eatery in Vienna, indeed the only one of its kind. Excellent food (from marinated fish to foie gras or sweetbread) that comes for lunch at € 19 (!!) for three courses. Not exceptional for restaurants all over France but...certainly a unique offer in Vienna. One can only hope they will survive in a city that has always tended to favour Italian over French cuisine. Bon courage et bonne chance!More
I have waited for a restaurant like Léontine (French Bistrostyle, high quality ingredients, product is the star, great wines by glass/bottle, affordable/decent prices, cute owners) in Vienna for many years. Hope Léontine will stay in Vienna for many more years... :)
