Description

The Naschmarkt is Vienna's most popular market. Located at the Wienzeile over the Wien River, it is about long.The Naschmarkt has existed since the 16th century when mainly milk bottles were sold (as milk bottles were made out of ash (wood from an ash tree), "Asch" (German for "ash") led to the name "Aschenmarkt"). From 1793 onwards, all fruits and vegetables brought to Vienna with carts had to be sold there, while goods arriving on the Danube were sold elsewhere. Nowadays, one can buy fresh fruit and vegetables from around the world, exotic herbs, cheese, baked goods such as bread, kaiser rolls, and torte, meats, and seafood. There are also many small restaurants which offer e.g. sushi, kebab, seafood, traditional Viennese food such as Kaiserschmarrn or Palatschinken (compares to rolled up crepes) and stalls which offer clothes and accessories. Since 1977, the market extends further along the Wienzeile to an adjacent area every Saturday, when a flea market takes place there.

This is an ok restaurant, not great, many better options in Vienna. Menu available in English and staff speak English well. Credit cards not accepted, cash only (they don’t warn you until after the meal!) the prices are affordable but not cheap - you can definitely get better food for the same price or cheaper elsewhere. The interior is nicely decorated but incredibly dark - I had trouble reading my menu. Maybe they’re trying to create a romantic atmosphere? This could be a good place to take a date. Outdoor seating available, which would be nice in the summer. GooglePlace - December 2017

Too noisy from the kitchen/bar area, to the point where conversation was impossible. Food was pretty basic for the price and its presentation was careless. GooglePlace - March 2017
