great food - a must visit in Vienna
Just ate in 'wrenkh' - this is what the street says BTW. Great setting, sit in restaurant, had a wonderful young waitress who spoke english and was very helpful.
We shared the olive tapenade and vegetables (good but not great); black salisify and parsnip puree (excellent), with a house salad (excellent) and potato's and vegetable dish (was excellent). Great menu but there are fish dishs on menu for the purists - also in Austria not alot of smoke around. Bad habit everywhere in Austria.

ate there the next day and it was like a different restaurant. the staff were rude and unaccomodating. The restaurant was busy but the seating was so cramped that we at one stage had a waitress derriÃ¨re over our dishes for 7 minutes. While my wife was happy with her lentil salad - I had a parsnip and pear soup that had a berry coulis or jam at the bottom and it was just confused rather than satisfying.
Hard to reconcile the two different experiences - it's a hit and miss place. In balance though, there are few choices in Wien so you are probably better off taking the risk.
