Respond to Review of Gasthaus Schillinger
Review: We went to this restaurant a couple of years ago (thought I'd left a review already!) Our hotel in Vienna helped arrange transport out to this gem of a restaurant (a train and a taxi) Without a doubt, this is the best vegan place in the whole of Austria and one of the best I've been to throughout Europe. The menu is typically Austrian but with everything vegetarian and nearly everything vegan. We opted for the large mix plate which came with a mountain of thick-cut fries topped off with delicious schnitzl, bratwurst and other faux-meat delights. The owner is fantastic, he took the time out to thank us for coming to visit his restaurant and sat with us and talked about veganism. He's an active member of the local community and provides vegan meals-on-wheels for the elderly as well as cooking vegan meals for the local school. The restaurant was popular and traditionally decorated with a chic but down-to-earth feel. The owner told us that the only reason he serves real cheese in one of his schnitzls is to ensure the locals come and enjoy veg food. The food is delicious, the atmosphere great and the ethos and management of this place is outstanding! Don't be put off by it not being in Vienna - this place is definitely worth it - the trip adds to the over all experience!
