It’s Restaurant Week in Vienna and that means we had the luxury of choosing from over 90 participating restaraunts all offering a 3 course dinner for only 25 EUR. The family chose Kristian’s Monastiri in the 7th district. The restaurant is unique as it’s housed in what used to be a monastery. We were seated in the lovely courtyard near the entrance. The atmosphere was lovely- cozy, romantic and comfortable. The service was OUTSTANDING. The kitchen went above and beyond to accomodate the special needs of our group (lactose free for me, a long list of “cant’s” from the bf’s pregnant sister, etc). Not only were they gracious in accepting our requests but they actually seemed to enjoy the chance to get creative with substiutions. The food itself was a modern take on Vienesse/fusion cuisine and it was sepctacular! We drank many a bottle of “Roter Muskateller” which is actually a very light, white wine. It was the perfect compliment to all courses of the meal. I can very highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to dining here again.
