Best for Trendiness - Expert review of Hollmann Salon

Classy design and fine dining in historic quarters.

The Heiligenkreuzerhof, a private courtyard belonging to the monastic order of the Holy Cross, is an oasis of peace and tranquillity, and home to a classy designer restaurant that offers both culinary and aesthetic pleasures. Actor/owner/chef Robert Hollmann wants everyone to experience a feel-good factor - which is what I do every time I go there. As this location is home to monks – who make the laws here – the downside is that doors close at 10pm. So, if you want to enjoy an evening of epicurean delight, either have an early dinner or come for lunch.

Food and drink: 

Menus change daily as do the seasonal ingredients. I'd call the intriguing cuisine experimental with Viennese roots – the dishes are all a feast for the eye. Dishes include: crispy perch served on cheddar baked potatoes, pumpkin cream soup with rosemary eggs and salmon caviar, beef stockpot with marrow and garnish, and 
salmon-trout rollmop with fennel.

Recommended dishes: 

Choose the three- or four-course dinner.

Ambience: 

Spidery steel designer chandeliers, cowhide rugs, chic candlesticks and an open Bulthaupt kitchen give this place a very individual signature. Most of the seating is at two, long, heavy wooden tables – so, if you like, chat with fellow diners. The overall feel is casual and informal. Lots of locals love this place - so do I.

Service: 

A young and energetic team are at work here.

Location: 

The restaurant is tucked away in an idyllic, almost secret, courtyard in the heart of Vienna. Look for the entrance through huge green doors.

Price advice: 

A three-course menu costs 33 euros, a four-course menu is 43 euros. Main dishes cost around 11 - 20 euros.
