The restaurant serves lavish buffet breakfasts. The extensive Asian Breakfast Buffet which featured seafood, rice dishes and oriental specialties appealed particularly to Vienna's growing number of Asian visitors. The European-American Buffet (which we preferred) offers a lavish selection of fruits, juices, cereals, yogurts, meats & cheeses and delicious pastries. Made to order omlets and egg entries are also available. The attentive wait-staff brings coffee or tea to your table and provides prompt refills.
The Lunch/Dinner menu offers Appetizers, Meats, Salads and Pasta Entrees. Main courses included Salmon on a bed of spinich with polenta ($15.65 US - very tasty), Spaghetti Bolognese ($11.00 US), Ravioli with Cheese and Apple filling ($12.75 - which my husband thought was marvelous), Wiener Schnitzel with cabbage salad and boiled potatoes (at $17.80 - a truly local item which was excellent). Steaks varied in price from $21-$24. On the lighter side; Beef Tartare was offerred at $11.50 US, Ceasear Salad at $8.25 and Italian Mozzerella di Buffola salad at $9.80.
Desserts were spectacular--Save room!! The chocolate mousse ($7) will absolutely melt in your mouth. Vienese Apple Strudel ($5) was chock full of tart apples and walnuts and of course the "old standards" ice cream ($2.50) and local pastries ($4.75) were also available.
The Brasserie Restaurant provides excellent local fare, at reasonable prices served by an attractive customer-oriented staff.
