Vienna Austria Restaurant Recommendations

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

My wife and I have decided to visit Vienna Austria and Prague this summer. We would appreciate any restaurant recommendations from the ChefTalk community. We are open to anything but enjoy the old world restaurants with history and good food. Thanks!

my Austrian eatery experiences are so outdated I would not even try to recommend.

 

no idea how you are getting "there" from "here," nor where "here" might be - but I do recommend taking a slow train from Munich through Salzburg to Wien.  the train tracks run through some absolutely spectacular and stunning surroundings.  you're gonna need a lot more cameras.....

 

of the many many European jaunts I've taken (a business thing...not 'vacation') two stand out:

 

- the Muenchen to Wien train ride

- a Muenchen to Venice puddle jumper airplane ride - dodging the Dolimite peaks....  I'm talking flying _through_ the eastern/ Austrian/northern Italy Alps, not over, not around, _through_ as in hold your breath hoping the pilot actually misses that really big rock pile out front . . .

No specific recommendations either, I've not been in that area since the mid 80s. Some of the best Chinese and Vietnamese food I've had has been in Germany though. That was the still the era of SouthEast Asia refugee influx.

 

Eat the regional street food and enjoy a good doner kebab, a greek/turkish/german fusion of the gyro type thing that has taken on a life of its own.   That time in Germany was also a stressful one with an economic downturn and much angst over the guest workers from Turkey. But they did bring some good cuisine to share. 

 

Hopefully Gene Machine will chime in with some good recommendations.

In my Time Life The Cooking of Vienna's Empire which is by now drool-laden, I think that Demel's is mentioned more than once and believe that it's THE pastry extravaganza.

Lunch or dinner at the Sacher hotel, Wein or Saltzberg, both are like stepping back in time to the 1890's. If you can afford it spend a night or two in the hotel also, really expensive but a great expierence.

In Prauge we found a place called Tres Stolari, very near the Charles Bridge. Was three years ago but if we go prauge again, we will definatly
go there again. Word of advice on Prauge, check resturants and bars with trip advisor or other traveling sites, lots of trourist traps that will rob you blind.

Thanks all for the replies we are formulating some ideas so I will post them shortly for some feedback.

 

@kokopuffs Thanks for the recommendations I have heard over and over about Demmels so we are definitely going to stop there.

 

@Lagom I totally agree about the Sacher. Originally we are hoping to stay there one night but it is 450 euros a night which is about 600+ us and it is just a bit out of reach for us. We are planning on eating there though.

Thanks,

zu den drei husaren is one of the oldest restaurants in Vienna and one of the finest in the world. It is an incredible culinary experience.
