Nice panoramic view and excellent food

I can definitely recommend this place if you like the combination of panoramic view and fine dining. If the weather is nice you can even sit outside or maybe just for drinks before/after dinner? The service could have been better and friendlier but all in all I can definitely recommend it.

it was good quality for a good price. Service was good but you missed the personal touch. We had lunch outside which was pleasant.

I had a great time here with 3 colleagues. The views were amazing in this converted water tower in Alt Stadt.

This place is close to the city centre but is a real oasis for relaxing over a leisurely meal or impressing your business colleagues. Sitting in the garden on a summer's evening is delightful - so quiet, so peaceful and so enjoyable! Service is understated, but always attentive and helpful. The menu includes a number of local delicacies and other... More

We hired the private dining room for a small company event and it turned out to be a perfect choice. The location is stunning, with stylish interior and a roof terrace with an amazing view. The weather was playing along so while we had the main courses inside, staff were happy to serve dessert outside on the terrace. The restaurant... More

Had lunch here with a client and enjoyed it. We needed somewhere quiet to talk & while the restaurant was busy we were able to converse well and discuss what was needed. Service was discreet. We both had the steak main course followed by fruit dessert, no alcohol. Would recommend, good value also.

Restaurant is located in the hotel Wasserturm which is a peculiar building. First I could not find the restaurant when I came in, and first I could not find the bathrooms when I went out. That said, if has a nice setting, offers a strong selection of dishes and also the wine list has both depth and breadth. We were... More

This was a real treat. Although the restaurant is a bit removed from the cathedral area, it was worth the walk. Food was wonderful, and sommelier's choice of paired wines were very good. Only thing I didn't think brilliant was service - rather formal for my tastes (being served by two people simultaneously watching each other to stay exactly in... More

We decided to eat here for our 30th wedding anniversary and were pleasantly surprised. We selected the fixed menu with 3 courses 38 euros (you can go up to 5) and selected the wine choices for each course 20 euros. On top of the selection was a pre-starter platter of local produce which was a nice surprise. The food was... More
