This was the first place I booked this time as part of Vienna’s (excellent) restaurantwoche scheme. I honestly thought from the reviews and their website that they were aspiring to excellence (and hoping for a couple of awards) and that it would be good to get in on the ground floor.
Aside from the fact that the wines were the worst I have ever tasted, the food was a shock. The best I can say is that the presentation was good if you still believe in the values of tasteless foam, bits of salad and poorly made terrines. But it all looked pretty.
The fact that the food served involved little skill and could be prepared in advance made it all the more irritating that the waiting time was so long. (Maybe it was a Fawlty Towers moment, as for about half an hour nothing emerged from the kitchen to any table). The main course was so oversalted that it was only palatable with bread, water and such a long wait that hunger trumped everything. Others have commented on the poor desserts, but suffice to say that they resembled an airplane sweet, the fact that an apricot had suffered so long in a deluge of lemon juice to render it unrecognisable, was not a good end to a poor meal.
The waiting staff were very friendly, if incompetent, hence the generous tip. I was shocked that this is the only place so far where the discounted meal (EUR 29 for 3 courses) is something I wouldn’t be willing to pay for the experience on a normal day.
