Humble vegetarian produce turned into inspiring dishes. Also, a great wine list with all the top Austrian producers. At this great vegetarian (also vegan) restaurant, chef Paul Ivic has done his homework building a network of hand picked farmers and producers in the countryside near Vienna. The the posh dining room with a vaulted ceiling contrasts the humble vegetarian produce turned into inspiring dishes. This is seasonal, mostly organic and farm-based cooking with plenty of preserved and fermented produce, especially during the winter. Also, a great wine list with all the top Austrian producers and a great non-alcoholic beverage pairing including house made kombuchas.

Simply unique and a personal recommendation One of my personal insider tips in Vienna is the Mraz und Sohn! Markus Mraz (actually the son of "Mraz und Sohn") cooks here with the next generation "son" Lukas Mraz and in the restaurant the guests are takes care by Manuel Mraz. For the seasonal surprise menu the basic ingredients are first presented raw - and then, course by course, they are conjured up on the table. Also an experience: the cheese wagon.
