Best Austrian Restaurants

The most iconic of Viennese dishes are wiener schnitzel (a breaded veal, pork, or chicken cutlet), sausages, boiled beef stew, dishes of Hungarian origin such as goulash and chicken paprika, and the quintessential Austrian dessert, the strudel. Meissl & Shadn should be at the top of any visitor’s list. A high-end, sophisticated look at Austrian cuisine. For a more casual setting consider Glacis Beisl, a subterranean wonderland with affordable local cuisine. Visit Café Sperl for a trip back in time to the turn of the 20th century when cafés were the “social media” of that era. For an Austrian beer hall and some unique Austrian dishes don’t miss Salm Brau. Finally, for pleasant little lunch that’s a stone’s throw from St. Stephen’s Cathedral, check out Ilona Stüberl for an array of classic Hungarian dishes.
