Figlmüller

Once at Vienna there is definitely a place you should visit if you are hungry. Figlmüller Restaurants are famous for “legendary” stakes from pork “the Schnitzel” with more than 110 years tradition. The first opened Figlmüller is located on Wollzeile, right behind St. Stephen’s Cathedral. From the start it stood for the unparalleled Viennese way of life.

Although, one can now choose between four restaurants of “Figlmüller Group”, we decided to visit the “original”, opened in 1905. All we can say about it is that it was more than worth. The stakes tastes as promised, crispy and tender, I tried the turkey version and it was tasteful as well. My advice is not to forget to taste their salad as well. They are really, really good (potato,…) and made with best and fresh ingredients. Prices are reasonable, meal for two, with one big salad and drinks will cost you around 50 EUR.

The restaurant is definitely worth a visit when you come to Vienna, although we strongly recommend to make a reservation beforehand (https://www.figlmueller.at/en/) if you want to get a table in the time of lunch or dinner. The restaurant is mostly full and you’ll be directed to the next Figlmüller around the corner.

 

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.

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.
