One of the things everybody links directly to Vienna is »Viennese Schnitzel« or “Wiener Schnitzel”. So why to resist the temptation and not to try »Viennese Schnitzel« while in Vienna.
Our choice was restaurant chain “Centimeter”. Its restaurants opened in 1996 and are located on various locations in Vienna:
- Centimeter I at City Hall, Lenaugasse 11
- Centimeter II at Spitellberg, Stiftgasse 4
- Centimeter VI Gersthof, Gersthoferstraße 51 and
- Centimeter VII in Stadtbahnbogen, Währinger Gürtel 1 / Ecke Jörgerstraße.
Their specialities are home-made food, bread measuring one meter and of course huge steaks.
Our destination was “Centimeter II” due to its location near the famous shopping street »Mariahilferstraße«. The food is delicious, whatever you order. Portions of course are measured in centimeters, and thus very large. If you are not particular eater, we recommend you to split a portion in two. For us this was more than enough.
My recommendation would be mixed salad, with its »home taste« which I love to order every time we are there. Service is fast and very helpful; the prices are moderate, so you get two mixed salads and steak with French fries and drinks for about 20 euros.
