When you spend two weeks somewhere, you figured out what your favorite places to eat and you tend to frequent them. Our hotel was right next to Santos, so I probably ate there more than two hands worth in my time in Vienna. I like to think they knew me well before I left. Another place I loved to drink at was 1516. I went on a few tinder dates there actually, and even ran into my cousin there on the 4th of July. So without further ado, here are my six favorite restaurants in Vienna!


The Top Six Places To Eat & Drink In Vienna!

Santos – Like I stated above, I became a big fan of Santos. Never did I imagine the best burger I’d ever get in Europe would be at a Mexican restaurant but that was the case! I ordered a burger one night because I’d gotten a little tired of Mexican (not that it’s bad- just too much of a good thing). viennadrinkIt was so juicy and delicious. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. They also make strawberry colodas that rival ones I’ve ordered in the Caribbean. I drank so many I probably started sweating coconut.

1516 Brewing Company – I loved coming here for a few good brews. They make their own beer and have a good selection of others as well. This is an ex pat bar owned by a Canadian. If you’re from an English-speaking country, you’ll feel right at home here. If you want to eat, I highly recommend the potatoes. They are potato wedges and cheese goodness and I ordered them multiple times!

I Leoni – After a long day, we found I Leoni down a side street and were pleasantly suprised! viennafood3They make their own mozzarella, their prices are lower than most in the area and the pizza was amazing. I ordered a calzone and it was huge! If you’re in the mood for Italian, you can’t go wrong here.

Mel’s Craft Beer and Diner – I met my cousin here for a meal and was pleasantly surprised. This diner seemed tucked away and I had a little trouble finding it due to nearby construction. Once inside, I was blown away by the amount of beers they had available. There were hundreds! This was probably the largest beer selection I’d seen while traveling before. I ordered a burger and it tasted great too.

View of the Danube Canal from Tel Aviv Beach 2010 at night

Tel Aviv Beach 2010 – I didn’t eat at Tel Aviv Beach 2010 but I did have drinks here. It is located on the danube canal and has a great atmosphere. From what I hear, it’s a great place to eat as well. Relax at on their beach chairs on a sunny day and enjoy the view!

Cafe-Restaurant Resselpark – This cute little restuarant is located in Resselpark nears Karlzplatz underneath the shade of tons of trees with some sunlight poking in. I loved that this restuarant was alone in the park and seemed like its own little oasis. I went here a couple times and got their meatball dish. It was AWESOME. The meatballs were rolled with cheese and sauce and then cooked. I highly recommend them. Other people I went with enjoyed their meals as well. If you’re looking for a quiet retreat where you can eat outside on a nice day, this is definitely the place!



Well, there you have it. I hope you get to try out some of these places on your next trip to Vienna, Austria. Let me know how they were.
