Located in the heart of Vienna’s Spittelberg district, Kussmaul is the first restaurant owned and operated by chef Mario Bernatovic, who previously cooked at some of the finest addresses in Vienna. Serving modern cuisine prepared with prime-quality, organic ingredients, Kussmaul culinary offerings change as the day progresses: from patisserie and bistro to fine-dining restaurant and cocktail bar. The weekend brunch is very popular.


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.
