Mediterranean cuisine in the heart of Vienna

If you’re visiting Vienna’s historical 1st District and feel hungry, we can advise you to visit the charming restaurant located at “Judenplatz”, only a few minutes walk away from the main shopping streets.

Ellas Judenplatz Location

Restaurant Ellas Judenplatz Vienna

There is more to say about the “Judenplatz” square itself.  Although situated in the first district it’s a bit hidden and therefore with not as many tourists around and secondly, it hosts the “Holocaust Memorial” https://www.ikg-wien.at/memorials/?lang=en.

The restaurant is owned by Lefteris Dermitzakis. While enjoying the food, you’ll feel the charm of Greek hospitality and will be surrounded by Mediterranean flair. If you want to be sure they will have a place for you, you can reserve the table at http://www.ellas.at/

 

When the days are warm enough, we advise you to enjoy your meal at their terrace, surrounded by olive trees. It’s not hard to understand that we enjoyed our time there.

 

So, relax and have a taste of Mediterranean coastal dishes.

Centimeter

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.
