Restaurant review #91 – Hollerei is a vegetarian restaurant outside of the city center of Vienna (Austria). It’s a 10 minute walk from the famous Schönbrunn palace.
It was a hot Summer day and we sat on the shady front terrace of Hollerei. (see other reviews from our trip to Vienna)
Vegan options are clearly indicated on the menu (and also the allergenes lettres as we saw everywhere in shops, bakeries and restaurants in Vienna, very handy!).
I wasn’t very hungry and just ordered an appetizer for lunch: a quinoa dish with some vegetables (6,90€). More than enough for me. For drinks I had a ‘vitamine cocktail’, a nice fresh juice (4,90€). Jim had soup (Melone gazpachio, 6,90€, two breads were 0,90€) and as a main dish the seitan roulade (14,90€).
Food was nice. The quinoa dish was a bit blend, even only being an appetizer. We shared a Chocolate mousse for dessert (6,90€). The dessert tasted nice, but it could hardly be descibed as a chocolate ‘mousse’ 🙂 It was more a thick chocolate paste. Very heavy stuff. We could hardly finish it, even sharing between the two of us!
The terrace in front is in front is very shady, covered with lots of greens. Tables are pretty close together, and the chairs are rather uncomfortable (although luckily with some cushions). The terrace was fully packed and it seemed that the only waiter had his hands more than full serving all the tables. Inside Hollerei is more spacious. Nobody was sitting inside as it was a hot sunny summer day. Toilet was ok, albeit a bit outdated.
All in all: we had a nice lunch, with friendly service and nice food.
