“Austrian run Restaurant...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

Why bother innovating with the cuisine of other countries if you cannot offer anything that does not come out of a bag, a can or a tub? Guacamole is not rocket science, just mashing a ripe avocado... If you fancy Salud's food save a lot of euros by buying packed nachos and salsa at the Hofer.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

The whole thing was an average experience - food, service, atmosphere. The food was far from authentic and there was nothing noteworthy about the service either. The ambiance was pretty dull, however we got there early and left shortly, so perhaps it gets better in the late eve.

“Ready-made or felt like it”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

The place was completely empty as we went in so that should've been the first warning sign. Waiter didn't really talk much, a rather weak grasp of English and he wasn't too warm towards us as we made our requests. The food was rather bland and didn't really feel very authentic. Expensive to boot. Could definitely have used more flavor in the food.

“Flavour-lite Fast Fattening Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2013

Salud is an American style Mexican restaurant in the central district of Vienna. It serves traditional American Mexican food like enchilladas, burritos, and nachos. The design of the restaurant and the food itself seem to cater for American tastes so high fat and simple flavours predominate.

Salud is well located, just inside the ring and very easy to find but in a corner of Vienna that is not teeming with tourists. The exterior is ok, the lurid colours used in the sign perhaps being a good indicator of what kind of place this is.

Inside it is a perfectly servicable place. There are more than enough tables. The decor is largely dark wood colours, having a neutral effect on the senses.

Service seems ok. German and English are easily available, Spanish wasn't really tested but seems to work as well. As this is Vienna, service comes without a smile.

The food is heavy American fare. The food seems to be largely the typical Tex-Mex corn or wheat foodstuffs like burritos or enchilladas absolutely drenched in cheese and then with slight variations. Certainly not the flavours of Mexico but the food at Salud will be very familiar to an American. Subtle flavours are not welcome here. Spice is an unknown concept.

Being stodgy Tex-Mex it is very filling. It could not be described as delicious but it fills a hunger hole. Condiments were really disappointing - guacamole and sour cream normally taste much better. The wedges appeared to have been of the supermarket frozen bag variety.

The food arrived quickly. Not surprising considering it was not exactly prepared fresh.

The frozen margarita did have a pinch of lime about it. The flavour wasn't enticing enough to be able to drink a full glass of it but others made better contributions to downing a pitcher.

Price did not seem extortionate.

For those looking for Texican this may be ok. It is not a flavour-full experience and is overly stodgy. The margarita was nothing to be excited about. Still, an American may feel at home here and will probably enjoy it more than this visitor.
