Description: Welcome to a culinary adventure! Welcome to the casual-luxurious presentation of the so-called "aroma cuisine". Delicious, unforgettable and twice toque-decorated! The young chef de cuisine Roman Wurzer plays with textures and aromas. . His dishes are made of high quality products, which harmonize perfectly, and of course they are presented in an extraordinary way. This applies also to gluten, lactose, fructose and histamine free dishes. The service is cordial, personal, professional, and absolutely inconspicuous. And always caring for the guest's well-being! With pleasure the wine accompaniment is adjusted for each guest individually. The service team is young, as specific focus lies on the support of young talents. During the day the restaurant radiates freshness and clarity for breakfast und lunch. In the evening a colour world of red and violet creates an entirely different atmosphere: At 3 p.M. The restaurant is getting changed. Subconsequently it welcomes its guests in a top smart evening dress: with covers for chairs, table cloth for the tables, "earrings" for the lighting fittings, curtains for the windows, mirrors for the walls, candles and decoration for the final touch a romantic mood and a perfect atmosphere for a sublime dinner is created.

“Informal look but wonderful food”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

Sunday night sees better Vienese restuarants closed and this was recommended to me by a business collegue, He was on the money. The quality belies its relativiely informal look.
Place was empty besides a couple just finishing their meal and i had terrifc service with great food, dining all alone. Delicious bread with a lively dipping oil and bright red beetroot salt. The food was creatively put together .and delicious. They didnt have a wine list by the glass but the small list recited by the staff was sufficient and both the red and the white were delicious. A most enjoyable meal.

“Imaginative”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

We visited in early June 2014. The service was good and friendly and the food was excellent with an imaginative combination of flavours. The restaurant itself is situated on the boulevard, allowing you to watch the world go by whilst you are dining.

“Relaxed, Refined & Friendly.”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

We dined here on our first night in Vienna. As were knew we would not be landing until the early evening we booked ahead, but the night we ate there it was quiet.

The decoration is modern and understated and the ambience is relaxed, while refined.

The meal started well with me being provided with Gluten-free bread rolls as we looked through the menu. We ended up eating a full three courses with wine and i have to say the food was excellent. Between us, the chef had to provide for a Veggie and a Coeliac, and we are often disappointed by some meals offered by some restaurants. Not the case here. The dishes were inventive, delicious and beautifully presented. The Chef obviously has flair and imagination and produced some superb food. Top this off with some really knowledgeable wine suggestions from our waiter and we ended up having a great meal in lovely relaxed surroundings.

The service was a match for the food and nothing seemed too much of an effort. We never felt rushed and the staff were always attentive, without being obtrusive. I chatted with one waiter between courses about the our location in respect to the river and subway stops and at the end of the meal he re-appeared with a little fold-up tourist map of the city for me!

Overall the staff at "At Eight" made it a great first night in Vienna. The bill was quite reasonable too and I would not hesitate to recommend a visit.

We will be going back.

“Brilliant surprise - highly recommend!”
Reviewed May 17, 2014 via mobile

I was looking for something close to my hotel, since the weather was cold and rainy tonight. At Eight was just a couple of blocks away and had good reviews, so I chose it for my first meal in Vienna. What a brilliant surprise!

The staff is polite, accommodating, pleasant, and kind. I was dining alone, which didn't faze them at all. The maitre'd and the server were able to easily adapt my preferred meal choices for my food allergies. He also recommended an Austrian wine (red blend) which paired perfectly with my meal. The food - portions are just right, nothing over-the-top. Flavors are creative and done perfectly. Fabulous.

There's no high pressure sales here, no rushing you out the door when you've finished eating. The ambience is casually elegant, moderate noise levels but nothing obtrusive. I can't say enough good things about this place. Really lovely all around.
