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.

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

Fantastic view. I know that it is just a tourist attraction but the feeling you get by dinning in that restaurant can't be described. A bit overpriced but it is something you don't experience often.

I made a reservation for four persons, using the offer "Tower up - Price down!" for EUR 18,50 for each person. For this amount of money we got: Lift + Drink + Main course + cake. The food was good, we ordered two Austrian breaded chicken, two Wild boar ragout with bread dumplings, four Sacher cake with whipped cream, two... More

We visited the revolving cafe at the Donauturm. On public transport, it is a bit of a trek to get to, but well worth the effort, especially on a clear day. Once at the tower, travel up on the super-fast lift, (with a lighted view of the lift-shaft above your head), until you reach the viewing platforms or the revolving... More

I booked this restaurant on the last evening of a romantic getaway. The view was magnificent, however service and quality of food do not justify the pricetag. Food was mediocre at best, service cold, rushed and just not friendly. No explanation was given about the menu and I had to ask for the wine list. Getting the waiters attention was... More

I booked the restaurant at the top of the Danube Tower as a surprise for my partners birthday, its quite far out from the centre and is a good walk from the nearest station but we eventually made it. Once we arrived we explained we had a reservation only to find we had to pay to enter before we could... More

Amazing restaurant , food is good but the most impressive is view. Restaurant is moving slowly all the time around the tower. So if you have a problem with this (as I do) with this it could be disturbing. But place is impressive and its is worth to try. Service very good and I think its one of the most... More

This restaurant is one of a kind. It is found at the very top of the tower and it rotates giving one the opportunity to admite Vienna from up high. We went in the evening and the view was breathtaking. The restaurant was also equipped for young kids as we went with a one year old and a two year... More

252 meters above Vienna, fine view to the landscape, staff did their best but definitely there could be more of them at least during rush hours.
