Silberwirt is an appreciated culinary institution of the city: a traditional Beisl offering Viennese cuisine made with organic and regional ingredients. Frequently filled with a mixed crowd that likes to linger in the tree-shaded courtyard from early spring onward. Try the local sheep's cheese, the potato salad or the Palatschinken pancakes.


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.
