Delicious, presentation, creativity, imagination. All words I use to describe the indescribably amazing experience at this restaurant. We chose the a la carte menu but there was no problem with substituting from the prix fixe (tasting) menu. The food was incredible. Fresh, creative, tasty, beautifully presented, real and satisfying. If you can plan ahead and make a reservation there, do... More

While you can discuss about taste, the spiced sauces were too much. No problem if they are served with the food, but most times they food was drenched in these sauces and so you had no way around I also missed the fantastic fitting aroma explosions of the last year, this time the taste was too "wild". But as I... More

If I were writing this review strictly on the a la carte Char my husband ordered, I would have given this restaurant six stars as that dish was the highlight of the meal. Unfortunately, I chose the 7-course option and wound up being sorely disappointed with 4 of the 7 courses. The meal started off wonderfully with an incredible variety... More

I lived in Vienna for more than 10 yearas, and must have lunched at Steirereck no fewer than 12 times. Every visit was truly a special occasion. Delicious breads, exquisite food, impeccable service. .

We travelled to Vienna after seeing this restaurant on the top ten restaurants in the world. The venue is very special when you arrive, being in the middle of a park. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing and it was superb. The bread selection of what seemed around 50 choices was amazing, and the food was full... More

Definitely one of the best restaurants I have ever experienced. Innovative but still classical, fancy but still elegant, making all the dishes a show but still unbelievably tasty. Let me give you an example - fish boiled in bee wax. Wow. The bread cart would make a great evening itself. Try the black pudding kind... And so on. Two Michelin... More

How to describe in words an exceptional, visual, visceral, emotional and highly olfactory experience? The colors, the balance, the flavors, the surprise in each dish? Just the breads would warrant a separate review, not to forget the cheeses! The bottom line is - my best meal in decades! My heart remembers an experience in 1987, that will fade by this... More

Steirereck is a two star Michelin restaurant, and the 9th best restaurant in the world.... I expected to have a great experience, but it wasn't at all. Staff was very friendly, they seated us inmediatly offered something to drink while we chose the menu. We decided the 7 dish tasting menu, there were two choices of every dish, so we... More

The dining experience at Steireck is amazing. We put it in the same category as dining at Chateau Eza overlooking the Mediterranean. We had a 4 hour lunch with 6 courses and wine pairings, plus a canape course and a honey course. The waitstaff is most attentive, and will accommodate any request. The restaurant architecture is remarkable. In addition to... More

One of the most famous gourmet restaurants of the city can be found in one of the most beautiful parts of Vienna, in the middle of the Stadtpark and on the banks of the river: the Steiereck and its sister establishment, the Meierei next door.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
