Hi -- I'm heading out for a few weeks in the Czech republic and Austria. I figure I'll catch as catch can in the country but am trying to plan out the cities. Here's what I'm thinking as the line-up:

Prague: Either Bellevue or Kampa Park [which???]
Cerny Kohout
Svata Klara
Bistro Sipek
one other -- Flambee? V Zatisi? Cafe Savoy?

Vienna: Vestibul
Osterreicher in MAK
a heuriger -- which???

Salzburg: Looks like pickings are slimmer.
Goldener Hirsch
Hangar 7

What am I missing? What should I skip?

    I ate at Gasthof Holle in Salzburg and was very impressed. Mainly classic Austrian cooking which was done very well, plus a good local wine list. It's a little out of the way, but definitely worth visiting. http://www.hoelle.at/en-gasthof_salzb...

      In Prague, I would pick Bellevue over Flambee. Some of the dishes at Flambee were better, but others were simply bad, while Bellevue was more consistent and much less expensive. Didn't get to Kampa Park. In Salzburg, we really enjoyed Goldener Hirsch. If you like game it is worth a visit.

        In Salzburg:
        Pfefferschiff (not Pfefferschraff !!) is still one of the best places to get extraordinary food in a wonderful ambiente. Reservation a must.

        No reservations are necessary at Augustinerbräu in Mülln, a traditionall beer hall, with excellent beer. http://www.augustinerbier.at/?id=5&L=1

        Next door is Gasthof Krimpelstätter, the best address for traditional cuisine.

        The best place for high end food right in Salzburg city probably is Restaurant Riedenburg.

        In Vienna:
        All the places on your list are worth trying, I would add a newcomer for good food, friendly service and a wonderful outdoor setup. A new variation of a traditional beisl at its best: Woracziczky

        For lunch in sunny weather we like very much the Flein in the garden of the Lycee Francais. http://www.falter.at/web/wwei/detail.php?nr=2901&ref=(name%3DFlein%26teil%3D1)

        Other places with outdoor dining experience right in the city center:
        Hollmann Salon http://www.hollmann-salon.at/
        Do & Co Albertina and Stephansplatz http://www.doco.com/deutsch/index_restaurants_de.htm
        Glacisbeisl http://www.glacisbeisl.at/

        For heurigen we prefer the Kellergasse in Stammersdorf. One of the many heurigen is always open, just take a chance ! http://www.weinort-stammersdorf.at/pl...
