We have no formal lunch or dinner planned, but usually a big group (or
multiple small groups) head for dinner in the evening.
The hotel is located at Mariahilfer Straße, which is the main shopping
mall in Vienna. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants, so you
won't starve :-) .
Here is a list of places I know
1) Across the big road (Wiener Gürtel) is the Westbahnhof train
station. There are plenty of places for a quick snack. The train
station might be overrun with refugees though, so the wait might be long.
2) http://caspian.at/ A decent Persian restaurant.
3) http://www.7stern.at/ A good place for beer and Austrian food. My
favorite for food tomorrow evening.
4) http://www.centimeter.at/die-centimeter/centimeter-spittelberg/ A
student's place, but still good and relatively cheap. Good place if
you are REALLY HUNGRY.
5) http://www.downstairs.at/ A really nice bar. Usually full. If you
want to go there with a group > 3 call them first and reserve a table.
6) https://de.vapiano.com An international chain serving italian food.
There's one place at Westbahnhof, but it's usually really, really
full. There's another place with shorter waits two subway stops
away(U3 -> Neubaugasse, or a nice 20 minute walk down Mariahilfer Straße)
7) http://www.mariahilferbrau.com/ Across the Gürtel plus 5 minute
walk. It's in the non-fancy parts of Mariahilfer Straße. I've been
there 2 times, they had good food and drinks.
8) http://www.kringers.at/ A nice Irish pub with the beers and ciders
that usually goes along with an establishment like that. Good burgers.
For those that don't feel like experimenting on day 1. A bit awkward
to reach (one stop U6 to Burggasse - Stadthalle + ~10 minute walk, or
~30 minute walk from the Hotel)
There are many, many more, those 8 are just the places I know.
Also note that most restaurants in Austria have a smoking and
non-smoking area. Usually it's obvious from the first second which is
which, ask if you're in doubt. Unfortunately you sometimes have to
pass through the smoking area to reach the non-smoking place from the
entrance and / or to reach the toilet.
