"The Austro-Iberian concept, the Greek chef, the extravagant products – what could possibly go wrong? The first course (marinaded lake trout with green asparagus, Ibérico cracklings and sea-urchin ice) presented one possibility: the ensemble of strong flavours in this dish did not so much interplay as coexist; each one of them excellent, while somehow failing to work together. One is reminded of Real Madrid. The second course was more reminiscent of the early days of RB Salzburg: foie gras praline in beetroot powder with apple, marinated hibiscus blossoms and gilded macadamias. The concept showed promise, but in the end there was something missing (a new idea, perhaps). Next was the first dish to really kick some goals: transparent seasoned razor clams tartare with crispy chicken "oysters" and pea velouté. Now that was nearly Champions League material. The main course was also quite superior: milk veal in two stages (tenderloin and roast) with leek tortillas, dark gravy and summer truffles. Then a classic finale: salted caramel ice cream, buttery chocolate cake, marinated strawberries. The verdict: undecided"

"Guests dining at the Schick, one of the most ambitious restaurants in the city centre, can expect a culinary exhibition with some challenges set against spectacular views of the city. Head chef Gerasimos Kavalieris occasionally works a little too hard, and the ingredients used do not match quite as harmoniously as one might like, but as we said: challenges. The lake trout with pumpkin, Ibérico cracklings and the rather dominating sea urchin ice is quite delightful, and cheerfully ornamented with flower fragments. A velouté of peas accompanied razor clams, chicken "oysters" and salted lemon, which introduced a pleasing hint of acidity to the plate. An excellent dish of sole was accompanied by green tomato sauce, beef marrow dumplings, olive spheres, a lattice of dried tomato and a piece of stewed tomato. Tender, delicate roe deer, king oyster mushrooms, apricots, kohlrabi and emmer wheat are the key players in the main course, with an extra side of venison lights: a delight."

"Enjoy creatively and with all your senses - this motto is now being lived intensively in the "Das Schick" restaurant. The overwhelming panoramic view over the roofs of the city of Vienna from the 12th floor of the Hotel Am Parkring, where “Das Schick” is located, invites you to take flight as soon as you enter the newly designed restaurant. The ambience is »cool«, but not chilly, but characterized by an inviting interplay of elegant interiors and high-quality materials in harmonious berry red and gray, paired with warm wood tones. Pleasant background music, solid tableware and the charming service staff under the direction of Marcus Täubl (25) invite you to linger and relax."
