Hirsch & Kamel Restaurant, Vienna

Hirsch & Kamel is an Austrian/Perisan restaurant less than five minutes walk from the Hotel Kugel. Christmas carols were playing as we arrived and there was a festive theme throughout with red, green and gold table linen and Middle Eastern-style statuettes lining the white washed walls of the barrel vaulted interior.
