Choosing where to eat is quite a challenge in Vienna. City is full with old fashioned restaurants, with typical Viennese / Austrian cuisine although you can also choose from a variety of cuisine’s, from Balkan region cuisine to Georgian, Japanese, Indian and bunch of other world famous cuisine’s. I will use this opportunity to present my most favorite places where you can grab something. I will, of course exclude the most famous places from this post since you are going to google them anyways 😀
ARAGWI is Georgian restaurant, located in Neustiftgasse 3, just next to the Volkstheater. I really like it because the design of the restaurant, which is quite interesting but still makes you feel at home. Food is delicious, I always recommend Georgian cheese bread Khachapuri and this delicious appetizer with walnuts paste. #SeePictureDownUnder
CENTIMETER is a wonderful, affordable restaurant (well affordable comparing to other places in Vienna) where you can grab anything – from salad, vegetarian dishes till burgers and ribs. Yay ribs. You can find Centimeter at three different locations in town : Rathaus, Spittelberg and Gersthof (exact addresses on their website). Now lets post a pic of their ribs cause I like ribs 😀
VOLLPENSION is one of my most favorite places in Vienna, like ever. Why? Lets check the pics :
The exact feeling you get in Vollpension is “homesick”. Everything looks, smells and feels like in your grandma’s place. The staff is really nice, the atmosphere is awesome and the food is to die for. You can choose from diversity of cakes and sweets to homemade dishes, they always have something interesting.
SIEBENSTERN BRÄU is a brewery in Siebensterngasse, which also offers variety of dishes from typical Austrian cuisine. The food is great, prices are affordable and their smoked beer is my favorite. When in need for a beer – Siebenstern bräu is your place.
RIBS OF VIENNA, sadly I couldnt found any pics I have taken there but totally worth visiting. BEST. RIBS. IN. VIENNA.
In order not to make this post any longer, I will write few more places I really like :
- Vapiano. Great wine, coffee, italian dishes and pleasant atmosphere
- Cafe Phil, where you can grab a coffee and a cake while searching for a books
- L´osteria, italian dishes, pizza is HUGE there #MmmPizza
- Türkis, if you are in the mood for a good kebab
- Cafe Francais offers variety of french dishes
- Wein & co cause everybody appreciates good glass of wine
- 1516, Flannagans and Rochus cafe are my weekend choice 🙂
- Medusa – great interior, fast service, great food and drinks
- Da Capo is really really good choice in case you want real old fashioned pizza
In case you want more luxurious experience, go to Onyx, Sky or Bloom bar or 30.
One more tip, I would avoid DOTS at Mariahilferstrasse for sushi. The place is great, food and drinks are ok but we ended paying 10 euros for the setting of table decoration ( tablecloth, glasses and plates) which made us super mad, since we weren’t even warned.
In case you didn’t like any of my recommendations this website can help you find and choose your perfect place.
Til next time,
