Inside Museumsquartier is a little haven from the comings and goings in the courtyard. To get there it's easiest to enter from the back on Breite Gasse. First you'll see the garden, its pride and joy in summer, with pea-soup wooden furniture, plenty of greenery, and a gravel floor like those in wine taverns in the countryside. Inside, the setting is sleeker, with black and white interrupted by tads of green. The modern interior contrasts nicely with the traditional Austrian fare, which ranges from organic beef goulash to Wiener Schnitzel. Dishes are beautifully prepared in classic style. While prices on the dinner menu can be a bit steep (€18 for a schnitzel), there's a weekly changing lunch menu, which gives you a soup or dessert and a main dish for €10.
