Popular with the locals but overrated if you ask me

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

Viva is serving the same food since opened upon 15 years ago. Thats why I´m rather bored to the offered food by now. You always have to book a table which are standing rather tight so they can fit in many people at once. Its rather hectic and sometimes you feel pressed to eat up and leave so they can... More

The fajitas were good. The salsa was like ketchup. Service was fine. Not the best Mexican food that we have eaten but hey, it is Austria. When in Rome does as the Romans. Eat Austrian food.
