The main course was pretty good, the waffles average by best, the waiters very nice. Overall the portions are way too small though, even after two meals I wouldn't be full. The high prices do the rest. The colourful interior is worth seeing at least.

Stumbled across this place by accident and while the colourful décor might be considered an assault on the eyes it was welcome break from the sensory overload of all things Amadeus Wolfgang Mozart. Had brunch here two days running, great coffee and generous servings prepared you perfectly for a long day in the field sightseeing. A welcoming, cosy no rush... More

Went to this chic cafe for dinner. Good food, wine and relaxed environment. Very reasonably priced. My husband and I both ordered salads which were huge!!!!!! the only criticism was the salad dressing was a little much I recommend asking for it on the side so you can add how much you want.

Two of us had lunch here. The food was quite good. I had one of the best chicken dishes I've ever had; my friend had some of the best falafel I ever tasted. The African tea was excellent. Service? Not so hot. Our server was fairly disinterested. Toward the end of our meal, I saw her go to the back... More

It's not that easy to find a great restaurant that serves you african food. But this restaurant is something else :) it combines african elements with austrian elements in a perfect way. The lunch menu is very cheap and perfect for people in their lunchbreak as they make sure you get your meal fast. Also the desert is a dream... More

A bit crazy in the decor...the walls are painted bright pink, and there's afros and leopard print galore! The food was actually really yummy! Our entire group really enjoyed our meal there!
