Best Restaurants In Vienna For Valentine’s DayHow do these rankings work?
This intimate and charming Viennese restaurant is situated in Stadtpark. It’s claim to fame is not one but two Michelin stars and an exceptional wine cellar of 35,000 (yes, thirty-five thousand) bottles. It’s chic, classy and perfect if you’re looking to go all out this Valentine’s Day. We recommend the pike perch dish.
Next up is Fabios and this just wouldn’t be a Valentine’s date night list without mentioning them. Right in the heart of Vienna, they’re known for their creative spin on Mediterranean cuisine and modern yet intimate setting. Fabios is a must if you are looking for a memorable and delectable evening. We recommend the octopus carpaccio.
Locally sourced seasonal dishes are what make At Eight such a great restaurant. You can find them smack dab in the city centre where the head chef, Alexandru Simon, is always wowing guests with his French delicacies. Given that they are local and seasonal, we suggest asking the waiter what is recommended for Valentine’s Day.
Just off Spengergasse 52 is a gastropub like you’ve never seen before. Waracziczky is a master at crafting authentic Viennese dishes that never leave us wanting for flavour. This is an excellent option for any couple looking for a simple, meaningful and mega tasty dinner. We recommend any of their classic Austrian dishes.
On the 7th floor of Grand Hotel Wien, you’ll find Restaraunt Le Ciel. This classically beautiful restaurant is perfect for enjoying Valentine’s dinner. Drink the night away with Michelin star courses and fine wines as you listen to live piano music fill the room and set the perfect tone. You can’t go wrong with anything on Le Ciel’s menu, though the lobster is especially good.
Shiki Brasserie is the perfect option if you are looking for contemporary Japanese food with an Austrian touch. Ornate, elegant and authentic are just a few words that can be used to describe Shiki. Be sure to toast to each other with sake and their world-famous sushi!
Last but not least for our round-up is a modern Austrian masterpiece. Just 3 minutes walking from the Museums Quarter you’ll find Veranda. This swanky upscale Viennese restaurant is everything you’ve dreamed of when it comes to fine Austrian cuisine. The warm staff and elegant atmosphere make it a perfect fit for lovebirds out on Valentine’s day. Also, the chef’s menu is an absolute must.
