We ate here one evening. We both ordered the rack of ribs and they were delicious. Unfortunately it was a smoking restaurant and since in the UK, smoking in restaurants has not been possible for about 10 years, we are out of the habit of eating in this sort of environment. We found in hard to believe that there was... More

This is a fun and lively spot which also serves good Mexican fare. The options for inside and outside a many, and they show major sports events on TV for those who like that.

This place is still very popular with the locals.... But if you ask me it is overrated. The food quality is ok and the outdoor seating is basically straight at the street. Not bad,... But that is all.

Our food was perfect. This establishment provided the best meal of our visit. Our waiter took extra time to be sure we understood the menu, was attentive without over doing it, and was really friendly.

If you want to have a fun night out in Bregenz, Viva is the restaurant to go to! On weekends it's usually very packed, so you should reserve a table before you go. Cocktails are very good, food is average though. Unfortunately smoking is allowed in the main room...

Austrian people they still smoke in public areas in 2014! The only separation? Smokers right, non smokers left! Food is good but expensive for a mexican restaurant. Give tips to the girls! You could get bitten!

After touring Germany and Austria for 2 months I've been craving some food that tastes like home (America) and I was satisfied with the food here. Albeit a little on the expensive side, (€7,50 for a margarita, €12-14 for burrito/ enchilada) the service was decent and they seated out group of 10 right away. I had my toddler with so... More

Stopped by here to grab some dinner as it was close to my hotel and I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. Who knew the Austrians could make such delicious Mexican food :) I had the fijitas which were very good and came out quickly. The service was good. I would stop back here next time I am... More
