I am visiting Vienna only once or twice a year and a visit at Mraz & Son has top priority on my agenda. The place offers creative cooking at its best. True, some compositions are unusual, maybe even daring, but always a pleasant surprise. In a nutshell: unique, delicious, creative, clever and unusual.
The size of the portions is matched to the number of dishes you order - so even the degustation menue with 9 items plus 2 surprises from the kitchen is not too much to eat. All menues are available with accompagnying wines at a moderate price, which makes it easy unless you know your wines and have preferences.
The ambiance is not overly cosy or snug, but then this is a place to enjoy perfectly prepared food of outstanding quality and not a place for a romantic tete-a-tete tucked away in a corner.
Being a foodie I have visited many highly praised restaurants all over europe, many of which I found overrated and overpriced. Not so Mraz & Sohn. For me this restaurant belongs to the absolute top! True it can be pricey, but there are other significantly more expensive places which cannot match the quality and creativeness here.
This restaurant is located away from the tourism mainstream districts of Vienna and a bit hard to find if you drive yourself. Better use a taxi - even though not all drivers know where the place is. The "remoteness" is of a certain advantage because there are virtually no "walk-ins" and the clientele is of a certain quality (at least most of them)
Summary: Do not miss!
