Greek restaurant Orpheus
1010 Vienna, Austria

Vienna is well known for its Opera Ball, and culinary talking, for its Wiener Schnitzel but I went to a Greek restaurant with specialties from Crete! I did not choose it but a friend of mine did for our group meeting. The restaurant chosen was Orpheus, located in the downtown near Stephansplatz. It is smartly designed in black and is quite spacious. What’s nice also is it has a huge open panoramic windows so you can dine in while having fresh air from outside. We did even better by going on their covered terrace.
Overview of the table
As starters we had different kinds of mezze (olives, feta cheese etc) and it was quite filling. For main course I had a grilled octopus. It was not bad at all but a little hard. Maybe it was a little overcooked but I cannot blame them because we chatted a long time while eating the starters. The beer was fine and they have Tsikoudia which is a digestif from Crete similar to the Italian grappa.
Cost and conclusion: I did not pay the bill. The food was good, not fantastic but it was probably because of us being so slow. The service were very nice. They were attentive and not pushy at all. Recommended if you are in the area!
