Ilona Stuberl is a wonderful and tiny Hungarian restaurant right smack in the middle of the center of Vienna. It is kind of a miracle this place survives as is, serving rustic, unfancy Hungarian dishes in the simplest setting despite being in the most touristy area of Vienna's 1st district. It was started by Hungarian refugees to Vienna in the 1950s, and they serve only Hungarian food, at very modest prices. But since Vienna was the center of the Austro-Hungarian empire, it is not a stretch to eat here for a taste of history. Incredibly charming local with soul satisfying dishes and hearty Hungarian wine. It only has maybe 10 tables, and reserving is a probably a good idea. The owner speaks English.
