Vienna: Need help choosing restaurant - Calling Strumi!

indofood | Mar 12, 2012 02:25 AM

I have been lurking this board and found Strumi and kukubura have been very helpful..

I am going to Vienna early next month, arriving on Monday to Thursday, and have narrowed down my restaurant choices to:

Day 1 Lunch – Meinl / Demel
Day 1 mid-day break - Zum Schwarsen Kameel
Day 1 Dinner – Beisl: 3 Hacken / Gmoakeller / Rudi’s Beisl

**Drinks – Onyx Bar @ Do & Co / Palais Coburg Winebar

Day 2 Breakfast – Meierei
Day 2 Lunch – Naschmarkt
Day 2 Dinner – Fine Dining: Mraz & Sohn / Walter Bauer

Day 3 Breakfast – Landtmann
Wachau DayTrip:
Day 3 Lunch – Knoll Loibnerhof - any reviews?
Day 3 Dinner – Heurigenhof Brundlmeyer - any reviews?

Day 4 Breakfast – Café Classic

Help me choose between the beisl dinner and fine dining! If I want to experience a traditional Viennese cuisine and all the food will be good, which beisl should I go to?

Should I choose Mraz & Sohn or Walter Bauer, I know both have different cuisine, but my consideration include
- Which one has better wine list?
- Is Mraz & Sohn too international? I will be visiting several cities in Europe, including San Sebastian and Paris, so is this a good option?
- Is the food at Walter Bauer exciting enough? Will the smoke really bother me? Bear in mind, I've never eaten at a smoke-filled restaurant before. Also, will the food be too similar to Brundlmeyer, the next day?

Has anyone eaten at any of the restaurants in Wachau valley?

Thanks! Any opinions on the above restaurants is appreciated!
