Restaurang Moldau

Overview

Eva and I are in Stockholm this week, and the other night tried out Restaurang Moldau; an Austrian restaurant and bar, which serves traditional Austrian food.

Ambience

Moldau is quite large, and is fashioned in the manner of a rustic Austrian country bar and eatery. Heavy craved wooded tables and chairs, with soft cushions scattered around, set off by traditional decorations hanging on the walls. It is an exceptionally cosy and inviting environment.

Unfortunately for us, it was the day before Mid Summer, and as such there were only two other people in it.

It offered a very pleasant atmosphere for an intimate evening, or for a larger gathering with friends.

Menu

The menu offered a good selection of Austrian food including; Weiner Schnitzel, sausages, ham hocks and Goulash soup.

Service

The owner was pleasant and efficient, offering me three different types of potatoes to go with my schnitzel.

Food

Eva started with a salted pretzel and green pepper, as she did not want to spoil her appetite.

I started with the Goulash soup, which was excellent. It was well flavoured, but not too spicy, and contained a generous portion of meat and potatoes.

I asked for eggs with my Wiener Schnitzel, which initially caused a "sorry we can't do that reaction" until I said Holstein Schnitzel (the official Austrian name for the dish) then there was no problem.

The dish consisted of a very generous cut of veal breaded and fried, it literally could not fit on the plate. It came with two fried eggs, two different types of potato salad and saute potatoes.

The meal was absolutely first class, the meat was tender and flavoursome and the potatoes excellent.

It is fair to say that I was well sated.

Eva's schnitzel, sans eggs, was equally large and delicious. It came with rosti potatoes.

The meal, which included a bottle of good Austrian wine and a schnapps, came to 884SEK before service.

Overall Opinion

A splendid restaurant, we heartily recommend it.
