Restaurant review #83 – In the beginning of Summer, we spent a couple of days in Vienna, Austria. Landia was one of the many restaurants we visited (see other reviews from our trip to Vienna). I read it is renowned for making traditional Austrian dishes like Wiener schnitzel and cordon blue, but of course vegan style. So we definitely wanted to check this out!
Landia is a vegetarian restaurant. Vegan options are clearly indicated on the menu. It is just outside the historical city center (Innere Stadt), about a ten minute walk from the Maria Theresian Platz.
We were there at noon on a weekday, around 2PM and the lunch rushhour was already over, so no trouble getting a seat.
We ordered a vegan schnitzel (9,80€) and vegan cordon blue (11,40€). Asked for extra potatoes, but these never came (they weren’t billed neither, so the waitress must have just forgotten). For drinks we had a freshly pressed orange juice (2,9) and a soda zitrone (sparkling water with a slice of lemon, 1,5€).
The dishes were just slices of fried seitan and potatoes, with a veganaise. The cordon blue did contain some ‘stretchy’ cheese.
The interior of Landia looked a bit outdated, rather dark, not really cosy. Service was swift, but very brief communication (would have appreciated some suggestions or help with the menu for example). If we had known these dishes came without any vegetables, would have definitely ordered a side dish.
Total of 25,6€ for this lunch (without tip). All in all, we left a bit underwhelmed.
