This bistro in the trendy Karmelitermarkt quarter opened nearly ten years ago and has since attracted a steady stream of gourmets. It has an excellent reputation for serving Viennese cuisine with a French accent, and the prices are very reasonable considering the quality of the food.
The clientele is eclectic, as many artists like this place, and there is a reason for this. The decor, chosen by the owner Horst Scheuer, is dominated by a work of art that gives the restaurant its originality.
The ceiling, painted by the artist Otto Zitko, also extends over the walls. According to its admirers, it's a graphic fresco or nothing but black squiggles if you believe its detractors. Whatever the fresco may do for you, this restaurant is charming, the welcome stylish, and the service efficient.
