Food and drink
A mix of traditional and modern Viennese cuisine can be found on the menu. One of the classic dishes is Krautfleckerl – small square pasta mixed with caramel browned cabbage – served together with a green salad. A daily lunch special is the biggest draw. One of the chef's modern signature dishes is the mayonnaise egg with smoked salmon.
Whether you choose to have a drink at the bar, a meal in the restaurant or in the peaceful garden, you'll notice this is a casual, laid-back eatery. Don't miss the huge chandelier made entirely of empty wine bottles above the bar - this is a design feature by Lobmeyr. I've noticed that most of the patrons seem to wear black and they are a chic, trendy crowd.
The staff are friendly, efficient and well trained.
Österreicher im Mak is on the Ringstrasse inside the MAK (Museum of Applied Arts). Enter either directly from the pavement – a tiny doorway – or through the museum entrance and design shop.
The daily lunch special costs 6.70 euros, Krautfleckerl 8.80 euros, small dishes run between 8 euros and 14.50 euros and main courses are between 12.90 euros and 22.20 euros. Austrian wines by the glass are 3.30 euros.
