Restaurants in Vienna

The Innere Stadt offers bite-sized breads at Trzesniewski and Austrian classics at the Art Nouveau Palmenhaus. Savour venison at 15th-century Griechenbeisl, where Beethoven once dined, or Vienna's juiciest schnitzel at Figlmüller. Sausages sizzle until 4am at famous Würstelstand am Hohen Markt. Edge south to Mariahilf for Cafe Drechsler's all-day breakfasts and late-night dim sum, or west to fashionable Neubau for DJs and finger food. Restaurants close around midnight. It's customary to leave a 10% tip.

Phoenix Supperclub

Fashionable, futuristic setting

An über-cool vibe draws Vienna's socialites to Phoenix Supperclub in the Neubau district. White walls backlit with neon pink and blue, and outlandish cabaret-style entertainers set the scene.

Griechenbeisl

Vienna's oldest inn

Beethoven, Schubert, Strauss and Mark Twain - they all supped at Griechenbeisl in the Innere Stadt. Vienna's oldest tavern, it opened in 1447. Vaulted rooms with flickering candles and dark wood panelling catapult diners back in time. The menu brims with classic Austrian flavours like the saddle of venison and chestnut soup with duck breast.

Sausage snack stand

Right at the heart of Vienna's Innere Stadt, Würstelstand am Hohen Markt is as Viennese as Strauss and Sachertorte chocolate cake. The king of late-night sausage stands draws a mix of hungry locals and tourists, who come to chomp on the celebrated Käsekrainer - cheese-infused sausages smothered in sweet mustard or topped with fried onions.

Figlmüller

Upholding the Schnitzel tradition

The Viennese associate Figlmüller in the Innere Stadt with one thing: enormous Wiener Schnitzels that are thin, juicy and coated in golden breadcrumbs; perfection that isn't easy in a city famed for the dish. Hidden down a back alley, the family-run establishment which dates back to 1905 has a wood interior, inspired by alpine taverns.
