It is a foodie's dream to tour all of the Michelin starred and recommended restaurants in the world. If you want to check out the restaurants that serve high-quality food without breaking your bank while traveling, grab a Michelin travel guidebook to find the restaurants they recommend in the city that you are visiting. 

Josef in Linz, Austria was on the Michelin recommended list in the Michelin travel guidebook of Austria. In the description, the restaurant is said to be "one of the city's most fashionable, buzzing places", and added, "It is not only a Szenebar, but a Vinotek". In translation, Szenebar means a trendy bar and Vinotek means a classy wine bar. So at the Josef, you can relax with cocktails or get lost in a conversation with a glass of vintage wine. 

At the entrance, it was very simple and did not make much of an impression. However, as soon as you enter, you get a relaxed rustic yet trendy vibe from the decor and the servers who greet you.

If you want to feel the evening breeze while soaking in the rustic and trendy Austrian charm, ask to be seated on the outside patio. The kitchen is laid out in an open setting, so if you love watching chefs cook, ask to be seated at the bar table in front of the kitchen.
