Update July 2015: Unfortunately some restaurants don’t grow with their guests. What started funny, glamorous and delicious with much love to details turned into just too expensive for the quality and service. Vienna has so many friendly restaurants with well educated staff – go somewhere else like Labstelle (here), Mochi (here) or Clementine (here), or any other restaurant in Vienna.
There was just enough time between my two Croatia Holidays to visit one of the newest restaurants in Vienna. I was kind of busy all summer and had Kussmaul on top of my list.
Unfortunately I didn’t know anybody who had dinner there. Many people visit the Patisserie on one side of the building for breakfast or afternoon cake with coffee. I was very curious why.
The service was charming, the architecture inviting and the menu? Well, kind of complicated. Fancy fairytale menu, which doesn’t reveal much of what you can expect on your plate. Kind of a surprise act, even after asking many questions.
But still. It doesn’t matter, because every served dish was amazingly delicious.
Nice little details like chives oil or Japanese butter. Funny butter knifes. Homemade lemonades. Herbs in balcony boxes on the windows instead of flowers. Drafted Beer from a small Austrian company and a fine wine selection.
Maybe one note: Be aware that the portions of the a la carte dishes are way more bigger than the ones from the tasting menu. You won’t see that one the prices 😉
