It can cost a lot to eat well in Vienna but it doesn't have to, especially if you follow our top picks for cheap restaurants. Start at unpretentious and cozy Weibels Wirtshaus, which has the prices of a wurst-with-potatoes-and-beer place but considerably better food and a much more upscale clientele. Hawelka is one of the most famous coffeehouses in Viennaa, a well-known gathering spot that has been run by the same couple since it opened, shortly after World War II. A light scent of garlic in the air and Macedonian music await you at Zoran Zdravkovics' popular Makedonija, where the menu offers authentic food and drink from the Balkans in a cozy atmosphere. Or for something completely different, head to Billabong, a pub with Aussie cooking and the best smoke ventilation in the city. Vienna is consistently ranked one of the most livable cities in the world and a big part of that for the locals is the great number of good, inexpensive restaurants.
