Fabios

The restaurant opened by local matador Fabio Giacobello in the Old City is top of the gastronomic class. The Mediterranean specialities offered here — in an atmosphere set by a stylish mahogany design — ensure that guests are thoroughly satisfied.

Dining

The Austrian capital has a rich choice of great restaurants: from gourmet dining establishments perfect before (or after) a night at the opera to down-to-earth local eateries. First time visitors simply must try a hearty Kaisersemmel, traditional Viennese bread, or a Kaiserschmarrn, Austrian chopped pancakes dusted with powdered sugar. Vienna is the only metropolis in the world that grows a significant enough amount of wine within city limits, so prepare to find plenty of good local wines to match your Viennese dinners. The most popular time for dinner in Vienna is around 7 or 8 pm, so if that's when you plan to sit down for your dinner meal — book a table in advance.
