Halle, Vienna

1 MuseumsQuartier
Austria 1070
Tel: 43 1523 7001's insider take:

Halle's thoroughly modern menu features a blissfully batter-free grilled squid and a tart rosehip mousse with cranberry sauce. But don't go expecting a generic contempo bistro. Even the more informal diners in Vienna offer a scoop of theater, and this one, located squarely in the middle of the MuseumsQuartier, above the Kunsthalle Museum, comes plopped down in the imperial box of the former winter riding school, so the very arty crowd sits under swirling Baroque plasterwork. If the packed jewel box gets too noisy, you can flee outside from May through September, when the restaurant's wooden terrace allows you to eat directly on the MuseumsQuartier's central courtyard and watch the art world spin.

Open daily 10 am to 2 am.
