One has to take one's time at Bistro Vienna. Enjoy a modest glass of white at the counter, talk to the waiter, converse with your neighbours… The restaurant is very small, so it invites cosy gatherings. The room can only accommodate 30 people at a time, but in summer the Biergarten multiplies your chance of getting a seat. This Hamburg institution does not take bookings. The only way to get a table is to wait patiently at the bar. The warm atmosphere provides a foretaste of Sven Bunge's flavourful cuisine, which is European, not just Austrian, despite the restaurant's name. Still, don't pass up the Wiener Schnitzel, with cucumber salad and potatoes, served on red-and-white chequered tablecloths under mirrors that make the room feel larger. This is a (very) good address in the Eimsbüttel district.
