Budapest, Vienna, and Berlin--near hotels
Spending better part of 2 weeks in the above cities starting very soon. Would love to hear about restaurants, preferably small, informal, authentic, near our hotels. In Budapest this is the Queen's Court on Dob Utca 63; in Vienna the Levante Parliament on Auerspergstrasse 9; and in Berlin the Ritz Carlton near the Brandenburg Gate (this is the business part of the trip as you can guess!). We love walking around European cities so anywhere good within lets say 1 km of the above would be fabulous. Non-drinkers so that part not a big issue. Thanks in advance
Head to Raday Utca (Kalvin ker metro station) in Budapest. It's a street full of restaurants and you're bound to find something nice.
For a little piece of Viennese Tradition I recommend Zwölf Apostlkeller. Great Austrian food in a traditional atmosphere (live music included). www.zwoelf-apostelkeller.at
When in Austria a visit to a Kaffeehaus is a given. My favourite is Demel Cafe on Kohlmarkt. You can see the pastry chefs doing their magic while you sit and enjoy scrumptious cakes and fragrant coffee.
Let me know if you have any questions...
In Vienna, there are three interesting places, quite close, in the neighborhood of Hotel Levante:
Restaurant Schnattl, on Lange Gasse 40, a real gem and a perfect place where to dine when in Vienna.
Konditorei Sluka, on Rathausplatz 8, an old-fashioned pastry shop and cafe.
and the Cafe Eiles, on Lenaugasse2, a real Kaffeehaus, right out of the past...
