we had a fantastic meal at restaurant lubin last week! (a croatian fish and seafood restaurant tucked away only a 10 minute walk from our apartment). being a land locked country, you don't expect austria to have too many fish restaurants. i thought this one was really excellent. they drive the fish fresh from croatia apparently. kev had their speciality for starter, the buzara 'lubin' (amazing) and i had grilled sardines (really simple and delicious). for main i chose the scampi buzara (langoustines in a delicious tomato sauce with polenta on the side) and kev had the fish plate for one. there were many different types of fish on the plate (admittedly we couldn't identify some of them but they all tasted good). the waiter was friendly and the whole evening was a lovely experience. except maybe for the drink we decided to try at the end of the meal (if you don't like the taste of pure ethanol then maybe avoid the slivovitz. i couldn't find a single trace of plum!)


  1. HI!

    I've been reading your blog recently because I took a little trip to vienna and wanted a local's advice. I really like your style and all the pictures. I didn't manage to go to any of the restaurants you talked about, but i did get to go to the naschmarkt, which was amazing!

    I also wanted to tell you about a restaurant I went to, it was so delicious. I don't know if you already know about it, its called Freyenstein ( and it really blew my mind.

    I'm new to the blogging community, having just started a food blog of my own, where I will soon post about freyenstein, if you want to check it out...

    I'll keep reading your blog even though I'm not living in vienna. I really like it! :)

  2. hey there! thanks for your comment. i'm glad you enjoy reading. and thanks so much for the restaurant recommendation! i haven't been there.... but i looked at the website and it looks great. i must go! i will check out your blog :)
