Restaurant Steirereck is frequently addressed as the best restaurant in Austria. Apart from its two Guide Michelin stars, it has been on the world’s 50-best list, usually among the top ten, more than most others.
The restaurant is housed in a monolithic glass cube in Vienna’s Stadtpark. The external architecture may be very modern, but the interior is a familiar fine dining establishment.
The restaurant serves a modern cuisine with flavors and tastes of Austria, using top-notch ingredients.
All dishes in the tasting menu were presented on small cards, placed on your table. The cards are a useful way to understand and at the same time remember all the dishes served.
This is what we had:
In summary: We had high expectations of “Austria’s best restaurant”. Sure, the food was good, but I have personally eaten on several restaurants in Austria that I have enjoyed more, including the dinner we had the following evening at Silvio Nickol. A big plus for the bread trolley though, which was one of the best I have experienced.
