Tascaria Maredo is part of a European chain of restaurants. It has arguably the best salad bar in town! Having seen the variation at the salad bar, it is easy to see why there's a crowd. For people with less enthusiasm for the vegetarian option, Maredo also does its fair share of meat dishes: great Argentine steaks and dishes such as chicken wings. Alternatively, the nachos are just as delicious. This restaurant is perhaps not as good as at The Heights in Manhattan, but is still a wise choice. Open-air seating allows guests a good view of Vienna's famous National Opera as well as the somewhat noisy Ring-Boulevard. The Maredo is especially suited to larger groups as it is very spacious.
My Japanese husband and I(caucasian) would like to give a 0 for both service and ambience and not a 1. Here is the reason.
At this restaurant across from the Opera ring, my husband and I arrived at around 8pm on a Friday evening this month. We were greeted in an unfriendly manner by a female hostess who began to lead us to an enclosed area. Before being seated, I politely asked her if we could be seated in a more open area but she barked, "RESERVED" and continued leading us to our table. She slammed down the menus and left. After seating ourselves already bewildered by the rude service we noticed that at the other two table in this tiny, enclosed area there were the following people: a black woman and a white gentleman at one table and a black gentleman and a white woman at another table. They were speaking German at these table so language was not an issue for them.
My husband began waving for service after we waited for 10 minutes. Finally, our orders were taken 5 mins. later. The waiter only approached us for our order and then for our bill.
My husband and I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone because we do not believe in segregation nor do we believe in rude and unattentive service.
