A total of ten restaurants are newly included in the Vienna selection.

Starred restaurants

The remarkable commitment of the chefs and the unwavering high standard of Viennese gastronomy is reflected not least in the number of MICHELIN Stars. Amador by top-flight chef, Juan Amador, remains at the pinnacle of the list of Vienna's Michelin Starred restaurants, holding on to its Three MICHELIN Stars in the 2023 selection for its creative cuisine. The positive picture of the previous year also persists in the Two MICHELIN Star restaurant category. Here, Mraz & Sohn, Konstantin Filippou, Silvio Nickol Gourmet Restaurant and Steirereck im Stadtpark all confirmed their high distinction. The following One MICHELIN Star restaurants from last year's selection remained: [aend], Pramerl & the Wolf, Edvard, TIAN and APRON. TIAN occupies a special position, as it is the only Starred address in the city to offer purely vegetarian cuisine, and is also honored since 2022 with the MICHELIN Green Star for its sustainable concept.

Bib Gourmand

In addition to the Bib Gourmand restaurants, MAST Weinbistro, Vestibül, Woracziczky, Mochi and Meierei im Stadtpark, which were already recommended in the previous selection, new entries ONYX and Specht also receive this very appreciated distinction, spotlighting their impressive value for money.

MICHELIN Green Stars

The one MICHELIN Star restaurant TIAN, whose sustainability philosophy was already honoured with the Green Star last year, is now joined by another restaurant with this significant distinction. The new Green Star in this year’s selection was given to the Bib Gourmand restaurant MAST Weinbistro.

Newly selected restaurants

The latter two restaurants were directly awarded the Bib Gourmand.

The Salzburg selection

The level of cuisine in Salzburg’s restaurants also remains consistently high. The Salzburg 2023 selection lists a total of 20 addresses, including Hof bei Salzburg. Among the restaurants selected this year, two 2 MICHELIN Star establishments, three one MICHELIN Star restaurants and two Bib Gourmand addresses maintain their distinction. Two restaurants in the 2023 selection are new additions, spotted by the Guide’s famously anonymous inspectors.

Starred restaurants

The undisputed leaders of Salzburg's gastronomic scene are Ikarus and SENNS.Restaurant, both of which hold on to their Two MICHELIN Stars. At Ikarus, in the unique location of Hangar-7, guest chefs regularly shine alongside the in-house kitchen team. No less convincing is the level of cuisine at SENNS.Restaurant, where Andreas Senns and Christian Geisler concoct outstanding creations. The new selection is also unchanged in the One Star segment, with restaurants Esszimmer, The Glass Garden and Pfefferschiff.

Bib Gourmand

This year's Bib Gourmand addresses are Gasthof Auerhahn and Reinhartshuber Im Gwandhaus. Both had already made a name for themselves in last year's selection thanks to their great value for money and, with the MICHELIN Guide’s popular award, are definitely still worth a visit.

New restaurants
