Vienna Restaurant Favourites. I like great Viennese cuisine in places with distinctive interiors. Most of these restaurants are located in the first district and are thus easy drop ins during your walks. Price ranges provided are indications for one main course. If you want more good restaurants and like a 30 percent discount off your bill, try local booking site Delinski.
Artner am Franziskanerplatz
Artner is a very popular quality grill restaurant on one of the loveliest little squares in town. Artner’s stylish interior combining pure white covered tables with rough naked brick walls scores high on ambiente. They even serve grilled fried apple strudel! Sitting outside on the square makes you feel you are in Rome.

Location: Franziskanerplatz 5; A-1010 Vienna
Opening hours: Mondays to Fridays 12.00 pm to midnight; Saturday, Sunday and public holidays 6.00 pm to midnight
Motto am Fluss
Sister restaurant of Motto, located in Wien City ship docking station where the Twin City Liner departs on the Danube canal, eclectic cuisine, 50’s style interior with a modern twist, spacious and airy; canal views are rather sobering, river terrace itself is nice though.
The restaurant is very popular. Book in advance.
