Best Restaurants in Vienna
Austria''s cuisine is a rich stew of historic, international
influences. Many local chefs combine traditional Viennese dishes
with the principles of nouvelle cuisine, creating Neue Wiener Küche
(New Viennese cuisine). Vienna is well known for its pastries, and
other famous dishes include Wiener Schnitzel, Gulasch and
(boiled beef with apple and horseradish sauce).
The best desserts to try are Sachertorte cake and
Café Central is one of the most famous cafés in the world with
its clientele having included luminaries such as Lenin and Trotsky.
The queen of Vienna''s formal restaurant, Altwienerhof, is fittingly
situated near the Schönbrunn Palace and serves some royally
delectable dishes. Next door to St Stephen''s Cathedral,
Figlmuller''s is reputed to serve the best schnitzel in Vienna. Do
& Co, one of the city''s favourite venues, offers not only great
views from the seventh floor of the Haas Haus, but also serves
superb Viennese, Asian and South American cuisine.
