The owner of the wine bar Pub Klemo opened up this place early 2017 together with the sommelier Markus Gould.

At Heunisch & Erben you will both find a big bar area where you can walk in for a glass of wine and some snacks, and a separate dining room. The service is casual, and the food high-quality with great value for money.

Address: Dominikanerbastei 17, Wien
One of the first bistros in Vienna, with top-notch food and an outstanding wine list. This place was actually the beginning of a new era of gastronomy in Vienna!

Here you can drop by for a glass of wine in the bar, or (if you catch a table) have a nice dinner with friends and a bottle or two. If you are in Vienna during the summer, ask for a table outside and enjoy one of the best guest gardens in the city!

The first vegetarian restaurant in Europe with a Michelin star. High-end cuisine with perfect wine- and alcohol-free pairings.

You can also order an alcohol-free pairing, which is the best I ever tried. In the 7th district, there's also a bistro version of Tian: a nice casua...
