Was in Vienna over Chol Hamoed, and we walked by Alef Alef and Bahur Tov which were both closed, not sure if they are temporary / perm closed, or if it was just closed for Sukkos. The only restaurant which was open was Mea Shearim which was very good quality and fast service, though a bit pricey.

Posting this in the local Europe threads.... Pressburg is just 40 mins from Vienna airport....

There is a new Kosher cafe in Pressburg/Bratislava, under Kedassia London supervision.

It's a 5 minutes walk from the Chasam Sofer and open Sunday to Thursday 10 am to 8 pm.

They can also prepare sandwiches or meals in advance for takeaway or cater meals for groups.

www.rivercafe.sk
Call/Whatsapp +421-951-921746

And if anyone wants to stay the night in Pressburg there's a beautiful 5* hotel across the street from the Pressburg Hachnosas Orchim that often has points availability.
Grand Hotel River Park -  Part of Bonvoy

**I am posting this as public service but please note that I am affiliated with the restaurant

Do we really need an international drivers license (IDP/IDL) to rent a car at VIE?

Meah Shearim is fantastic for dinner as well, with a nice big menu.

I rented a car there a few weeks ago & they didn't ask for it. (zippy 7 car rental)

FYI, I rented with national and they demanded the IDP from me and everyone else in the queue, they handed out little papers with a  link to one of the fake IDP sites, costed me $70 for express processing of this scam. they wouldn't give out the car otherwise
