Restaurants in Austria

Expect plenty of hearty, meat-centric dishes on the menu at the restaurants in Austria. While Austria isn’t typically known for its culinary prowess, the nation is seeing a culinary renaissance, and the stick-to-your-ribs, meat-and-potatoes dishes that characterize Austro-Hungarian cuisine are expertly prepared at Austrian restaurants. Prepare for a calorie-fest with popular dishes like wiener schnitzel (boneless meat fried in a coating of flour, egg and breadcrumbs), goulash (a hearty soup or stew of meat and vegetables), and fresh apfelstrudel (apple strudel).

Some of the best restaurants in Austria include Motto am Fluss in Vienna, which serves Austro-international cuisine prepared with organic cuts of meat in a stylish but low-key setting; Steirereck im Stadtpark in Vienna, a Michelin-starred establishment helmed by chef Heinz Reitbauer that offers a modern twist on Austrian classics, like barbecued Alpine beef served with Viennese figs and celery, pan-fried grayling fish with sesame, and a cheese trolley that boasts hundreds of cheese varieties; Magazin in Salzburg, where chef Richard Brunnauer serves dishes inspired by seasonal offerings like scallops with vine-ripened peaches or venison medallions in porcini sauce; and El Gaucho in Graz, an exceptional Argentine steakhouse that will make you swear you’ve been transported to another continent.
