If your friends describe you as “attracted to slightly morbid curiosities or fond of meat”, this spot is for you!
The restaurant is located right across Gate No1 of Vienna’s biggest cemetery Zentralfriedhof. This is where you should hop off tram 71, if you want to start your walk at the Jewish cemetery. To me, walking up and down its paths is a quiet highlight in Vienna.
You can also bring your vegetarian friends to Concordia Schlössl, it’s just that the choice for them is not exactly huge. Frankly, other meals here are not as convincing, so I recommend you go for a Wiener Schnitzel!
Variations of the typical Austrian dish here are curious, nonetheless delicious. Most of them are served rolled-up, stuffed with various fillings and come with salad. The stuffing might seem strange to you, yet the chefs have thought it through and their creations do in fact taste very good. On the menu one reads odd names like “Spring ins Maul” (stuffing: ham, mozzarella and sage) or “Geheimes U-Boot” (stuffing: top secret!). There is even a popcorn-Schnitzel.
One more weird thing around here: the prices: numbers are € 11.88 or € 14.91. Reason is, they converted the prices when Austria’s former currency Schilling was replaced by the Euro and didn’t bother setting round figures.
Also Concordia Schlössl is a hot tip for a romantic candlelight dinner since the wooden floor and no electric lights around set up a very special atmosphere.
