Do you know, that one can have an excellent Lunch or Dinner, Happy-Hour- or Good Night-Drinks
smack in the middle of Vienna`s worldfamous Burgtheater?
Some years ago the owner of a posh, "retro"-restaurant in the Vienna Stock Exchange had the idea, to rent the right lobby of Burgtheater to open a modern restaurant: VESTIBÜL ("front court", "entrance room")was born !
The former entrance for the Emperor's coach gave the architect, Luigi Blau, the idea to amalgamate old and new. The result is a synthesis of art that combines an historically built structure with contemporary, modern furnishings.
Here you can treat yourself with the finest international and Viennese dishes, excellent wines and typical Austrian desserts - imperial feeling included!

Favorite Dish: To mention but a few:

Rolled beef carpaccio with crudités salad / Cold basil soup with tomato-mozzarella terrine and olive baguette ,
Octopus tartar with cucumber-mango salad in radicchio leaf ,
Crisp chanterelles raviolo with provencial spinach vegetables,
Consommé of ceps with saddle of rabbit and potato noodles,
Veal lights with chives dumpling,
Zesty fruit risotto with fried prawns and lemon balm,
Roasted potato- fresh cheese tartlets with melted tomatoes and rucola,
Braised cheeks of veal with beans salad, and, and, and...
