Recommended Peruvian food in the First

Who would imagine finding Peruvian cuisine in Austria? Well, we did, and it’s near home for us, and well worth the trip if you are outside the Ring. It’s informal, but service and food makes it worth the trip.  http://www.qero-viena.at/


In response to the question:  “how kid-friendly it seemed?” I recently asked, and they place families in the lower level. They have one highchair, but no booster seats. It would be best to call ahead.


Eat like an Emperor: Marchfelderhof

This is a unique place where the owner has collected an immense assortment of memorabilia.  The restaurant is literally stuffed full of things from the old monarchy and so it is quite fun to go there. And, the food is good too! They specialize in Spargel (white asparagus), but of course, they have all the seasonal specialities throughout the year.

The restaurant is located about a 30-minute drive outside of Vienna and definitely makes for a fun outing!

Restaurant in the Vienna Woods: Waldschenke Staar

Waldschenke Staar is a wonderful chicken grill right in the Vienna Woods.  I call it the “Chicken in the Woods” place. They make wonderful rotisserie chicken on an open pit fire. You can order “ein ganzes, ein halbes oder ein viertel Backhendl”  (whole, half or quarter roast chicken. It is perfect with a “gemischter Salat”/mixed salad).
Dogs are welcome in the Heurigen garden as well.  It is 15 km from Vienna through the Vienna woods  road — turn off at road to Tulln by the circle. Drive slowly in the Vienna woods – the police often do speed checks (to prevent noise pollution) and there are many areas where the road suddenly becomes 30 kilometres per hour!
The restaurant is  open all summer until the end of November. On arrangement, they also can do a Thanksgiving turkey for a larger group or, of course, you could enjoy the traditional goose in the late Fall instead of your turkey for an Austrian experience!
