Vienna for Solo in May

  • 4

Will be spending a few days in Vienna mid May; due to work, my wife is unable to accompany so interested in places where a single (middle aged) male diner would be comfortable. Enjoy every type of cuisine but would of course like to try local and regional; non-drinker so wine list not important. Staying in the "museum district" (1010 post code).

  1. Well, this might amuse you, but the wine bars are the best address for single diners. There you can sit at the bar and get wonderful food:

    Wein & Co
    Meinl Weinbar (in the basement, not the restaurant in the first floor)
    Fino (two loactions)
    and my local favorite, the Cantina e l´arte

    For exact locations and phone numbers look here: www.falter.at/wwei

    All have non-alcoholic drinks and good coffee.

      I also suggest Immer Voll. You can sit at the bar and get great food. It's full of locals.

    2. A few years back I stayed on my own for a week in Vienna. As a young woman, I felt particularly comfortable in the higher end hotel restaurants (Anna Sacher, Korso), at Steirereck (a top high end spot), museum dining (MAK) and more casual restaurants. I was always greeted with such warm hospitality. Staff usually wanted to keep me company to be sure I was comfortable. And, particularly easy are the cafes--light bites, cafe and a good book to read.

        I am thinking of doing the same thing...So you, overall, found it to be a wonderful experience solo?
