    KunstHausWien Restaurant: FOOD FOR THOUGHT - EAT IN THE MUSEUM!

    by themajor Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are keen to hunt down Hundertwasser, it makes all the difference if you can tick off the essential sights the right way round. As his Spittelau power station is a little further afield, the two sites in central Vienna that you'll definately want to visit are Hunderwasser Haus and the KunstHaus Wien. If you are intending to rest at some point for food and drink, take my advice and visit them in that order. For whilst the flats have spawned a somewhat tacky arcade of shops opposite (they have the quirky Modern Art toilet though!), the museum that is the latter has a lovely café/restaurant.

    For the KunstHausWien Restaurant was the scene of our family Christmas lunch in 2004, and very nice it was too. A good variety of bistro type dishes in a lovely setting...well, lovely to all except those with a severe allergy to poinsettias! All in all, a grand way to finish off a heavy spate of sightseeing - and it's open from 10am to 11am!

    Favorite Dish: The chicken dishes we had were excellent as were the salads. The side order of humble chips were particularly comforting on what I recall was a freezing cold day!

    YOGA: Best Indish-Restaurant in town

    by wiener_nougat Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Restaurant Yoga is for my opinion the best indian restaurant in vienna.
    They are specialized into the southern india kitchen, and do really understand how to cook this stuff.
    Of course the waiters are friendly there, it seems to be run by a family (though I am not sure about that)

    Favorite Dish: As all dishes there taste really delicious, I can't recommend a single one, but be sure to try the naan bread (a bit fat but great) or the papadam.
    Ask the waiter how spicy a certain dish is, to avoid getting something reeeeally hot. ; )
    If you tell them to make a meal not too spicy, it's also no problem.

    Don't wonder when you get a plate full of different spices after you have finished eating.
    These "spices" are used instead of toothpicks, and is really typical Indian style.
    You just chew them and your mouth is "clean".

    All major credit cards are accepted as well as eating on sunday is possible. (I will never understand why restaurants in Austria are closed on sundays...)
    On the other side, they have closed on Mondays during July and August.
    They have a garden as well as pricy Menus around noon.
    Prices from € 4,30 to € 6,60
    Main dishes from € 6,50 to € 10,40
    Be aware that it might get more, due to the fact you take some bread to the main dish, or drink some tea.
    Of course they have also enough variety on vegetarian dishes.
    Just go for it, you wont regret it.

    Eissalon: Ice Cream at Schwedenplatz!

    by lulu_girl Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Vienna has some of the *best* ice cream. I'm actually allergic to milk, but I still end up buying a cone once a month or so (well, when I'm there). There are a lot of ice cream (Eis) parlors around Vienna, but I think the best one is located at Schwedenplatz, right by the subway stop.

    Naturally it's not open in the winter, as it's more of an outdoor place, but be sure to go there in the summer. The best ice cream tends to be made and run by Italians, and damn, they sure do know what they're making! Delicious! Very, very creamy with fresh berries inside, huge chocolate chunks, etc... It's cheap too! Less than three euros for a double scoup cone. It's a wonderful treat on very hot days.

    Favorite Dish: ice cream!

    Centimeter I to V: Never order alone 1 main dish!!!!

    by iavormar Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    this is a chain of 5 very cozy restaurant spread in the so called "student" districts in Vienna - 7th, 8th and 9th. The portions are so huge that we always take 1 dish for 2 people. Although the portions are immense, they still cost almost nochting. So if you split one in two it will be between €2 and €3 per person. Amazingly cheap for Vienna. Opened Mo-Sa 10 -02, and Sun from 11 to 02. The address bellow is for my favourite one - "centimeter III"

    Favorite Dish: 1.Obelix Platte - a lot of potatoes, grilled pork meat, austrian sausages, 2 dipp sauces and a bit of salad - enough for 3 people if they are hungry...
    2. Holzfällernockerl
    3. Stiegl Beer
    The restaurant has other interesting ideas like - 1 meter spaghetti, warm and cold bread with different spreads sold in cm, 1 or 2 m beer, 1 meter schnapps, soup in bread bowl and other funny stuff.

    Tunnel: Fine food in jazz club

    by Zo72 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tunnel is certainly one of my favorite places in Vienna. It is located in Josefstadt district, pretty appealing place of Vienna. It is kind of the students/backpackers place and also jazz/blues club. Food as well as drinks are inexpensive for Vienna standards, i.e. pizza is 5 to 7 EUR.

    In the basement of Tunnel there is club where you can listen to live music. It is really nicely arranged with tables settled so that you always sit looking towards stage. On Sunday they have free jazz concerts while on the other days there can be admission - check in their monthly programme. Certainly worth visiting!

    Favorite Dish: Vegetarian (and few vegan) dishes are marked on their menu so it was easy for me to order. They have quite decent pasta and pizzas and other dishes. Recommended.

    Cafe Restaurant Weimar: Wiener Schnitzel and Sacre Torte

    by phred1910 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Posh, but not overly so. I would say typical Viennese. Has a Piano player and a traditional atmosphere.

    It dates back to 1900.

    Favorite Dish: Wiener Schnitzel and Sacre Torte (when in Rome do as the Romans - when in Vienna do as the Viennaganders)...

    Kyoto: Korean/Japanese cuisine

    by Penelope4 Written Mar 29, 2011

    The place is packed at lunchtime because it is right at the heart of the city. It is frequented by employees working in the vicinity, musicians who have just practised in nearby establishments, some tourists. Food is great. Ambiance is nice.

    Favorite Dish: My friend and I had set menus (with salad, soup and dessert) and jasmine tea and paid only Euro 24 for 2. My friend had Tempura Bento and I had Bulgogi Bento

    Ristorante Da Gino E Maria: Italian from Naples

    by longsanborn Updated Mar 21, 2011

    Looking for a good Italian restaurant that serves authentic italian food? This lovely family restaurant near Naschmarkt does it very well. The italian family from Naples (I was told by an Italian friend who recommended this place) has opened this restaurant for many years. The service is good, the staffs are friendly and can speak English, and the atmosphere of the large roomy restaurant is warm and relaxing.

    Open daily (except Mondays) from 11.30 - 15.00 and from 18.00-24.00;
    Closes on Mondays and public holidays.

    Favorite Dish: Grilled calamari is fantastic! The other italian fare - pasta and pizza - are also good. The tiramisu is homemade and so yummy. Try other food too. The wine is - off course - really good.
