Great experience from "a room with a view"!

You should expect a tourist trap with bland food and uncommitted staff in this rotating resturant 170 m over street level. But NO! - this was a really lovely experience and we didn't feel "trapped" for a second! You should order a table in advance. The restaurant has slightly outdated decorating... read more

Good food. Ok price wise (a bit expensive but delicious). Went with my husband for wedding anniversary. Was a bit too hot. Not sufficient air conditioning. The only negative was initial sitting. They tried to sit us at a round table(6 people place...), ugh, NOT romantic, then I complained and offered us table near window but at the side was... More

This is about the Café at the 160m level, and the brunch buffet offered from 11-14 on weekends and public holidays. Make sure you make a reservation online well ahead of your day of choice, we booked ours about 3 months in advance. Brunch buffet is rather conservative, built around 5 main courses which are typical for Viennese cuisine, and... More

The price of the elevator to reach the restaurant is pricey, but once that you're there, you're gonna have the best view of the town! Imagine yourself sitting at a table, next to a giant circular window wall from where you can see Vienna. And then, you see the place rotating with you! That was absolutely amazing!

You must try this restaurant. It is a little bit expensive, but not so much. In return you have the 360° view of the city.

Incredible views if Vienna. Fantastic lunch from attentive staff. Great experience and the local wine and bubbles were delicious too. Prebook to avoid disappointment. The lift is chargeable to the top regardless of booking in restaurant. Worth every penny delightful time and meal. Highly recommended x x

I had planned a special trip to Vienna for our 20th wedding anniversary, and booked this Restaurant for the evening meal. It was absolutely wonderful!

The view was great and being at the restaurant meant that we didn't have to deal with the tour group downstairs in the cafe. They were also fabulous with our 2.75 year old son. A full revolution seems to take 20 minutes. Get onto their website and make a booking/ reservation as it is really worth it.

My wife and I visited the restaurant on our last day in Vienna. The tower was easily accesible by foot. We had made a reservation the previous day for a 2 course gourme meal with 21,90 (ride with the lift included). The view is astonishing! The tower rotates constantly and the view of tour table is always different! The atmosphere,... More

Description

Many restaurants can boast lovely views here in Vienna, where almost everything is beautiful, however Der Neue Donaurtum takes views to the next level. 165 metres above the ground this restaurant offers the most stunning views and it���s not as if you could miss it either. Towering over the city this observation tower slowly rotates, endlessly offering new outlooks. But that doesn���t mean the interior has been forgotten, simple and classic in simple whites, stripes and wood, the dining room allows the view and the food to speak more loudly. The short but sweet menu centres around the delicate traditions of Viennese cooking accompanied by fine wines.
