Stunning Food @ Mraz and Sohn, Vienna
Mraz and Sohn has ‘got’ to be our favourite restaurant when we were on our little weekend break in Vienna. We took a short taxi ride from the hotel to the restaurant and as we entered, we were immediately taken to an intimate table in the corner. The staff were very professional and prompt, willing to answer any questions on the menu and the Sommelier was more than happy to offer various wine recommendations. Even though it was busy with parties and other couples, the service at Mraz and Sohn was impeccable and we were not rushed in anyway.
The menu was rolled up as a scroll and there was a choice of 4, 6 or 9 courses with wine pairing as an option. We decided to go ‘middle of the road’ for the 6 courses…why not! From the kitchen, four ….yes, FOUR amuse bouches (I’ve never had some many amuse bouches!) were served to us, each one so delicately and beautifully presented. The amuse bouches were like mini explosions of flavours in the mouth and I just couldn’t wait for what the following courses had to offer. The way the lamb course was brought out was unusual with the lamb toast being served on, what looked like, an upside down bowl. Once the lamb toast was finished they lifted the bowl and there was even more lamb revealed underneath! Each course that came out was DIVINE, full of colour and packed with flavour. Certainly ‘not’ either bland or dull looking.
Check out the photos below – words cannot describe how good the food was. Oh My. I’m getting hungry again just looking at these photos!
Now, the cheese course was something else… The cheeses were presented on a ‘huge’ trolley and ranging from soft, mild, bries and goats cheese to the really honking, stinky, blue cheeses. The waiter prepared a selection of mild, soft cheeses for me, as I’m not a fan of stinky cheeses, but Ian went all out and wanted to sample a variety. Ew… 😉 As well as the cheeses, we were given a selection of chutneys, breads eg. tomato, pesto and pumpkin bread, olives, chilli, nuts, pesto, truffle oil and mini potatoes wrapped in foil which looked like big ‘bon bons’!
After we cleaned up the cheese course I had totally forgot about the dessert. That’s right, there’s always room for dessert no matter how full I am, especially if chocolate is involved 🙂 Dessert was chocolate with mango and curry. Strange combination you’re probably thinking, but this proved to be absolutely DELISH!
Finally, to end the meal, a sweet of walnut with vanilla and berries was given and complimented with a little mug of punch. This was all quaintly served by a little toy drummer, in pic below. We had eaten so much food we didn’t even realise how late it was. Time flies when you’re having fun!
Overall, would I come back again? A resounding YES would be my answer due to the excellent service which was faultless and the scrumptious food served.
Average price: €65 without wine $$
