Messed up reservation and were not interested to correct their mistake. Very unfriendly staff. It seems that staff's priority is to get rid of customers, not to provide any service. This restaurant was advertised to me as popular restaurant with good food. What I found was total mess and rude staff. Cannot say anything about the food as had no... More

It seems like a 'need to be' place in Vienna. Middle aged urban people are flooding the restaurant above the river - reservation absolutely required for dinner (try to get a place at the window). A warm atmosphere, very nice and appealing interior design and an extraordinary kitchen makes dinner an outstanding experience. Again the kitchen offers a lot of... More

Well, where do I start? This is the restaurant which hosted my small wedding reception, and it couldn't have been a better choice. Place is fantastic (the view on the Donaukanal in the hearth of the city is even better after dark), food is excellent, and even if we were really a small group, we received an outstanding service. I... More

We arrived only for dessert and drinks. There was a place on the bar on the lower floor, so we sat down and waited to order. The bartender took his time. Finally, we managed to order one Margarita, one Bailey's and one souffle. Altogether was 28 Euros before tip, which is quite expensive, especially when my Margarita was so small... More

The cafe upstairs has outdoor seating and a simple menu. Not many vegetarian options and the the waiters can be a bit rude, but on a nice summer day the setting makes it worthwhile. I went to the cafe for lunch one day and back to the restaurant for dinner the following day. They have good selection of local wines... More

I must admit i had high expectations. Mu husband had dinner here last summer and loved it. The setting is wonderful. The cafe is on top mainly outside the deck. The restaurant below has no outside area but thanks to the glass wall that opens to about 50% it actually feels like sitting outside. Make sure you get the wundow... More

I was invited for a dinner in the Motto am Fluss Restaurant (there is also a bar and a café). Good dinner with traditional Austrian food and nice Austrian wines. No comments about the price as I haven't seen the bill.

This delightful spot, designed to make you feel that you're on the deck of a cruise ship, is sure to please you for a great lunch or late night apple strudel. Their large burgers are delicious but you may need to ask that they be cooked a little longer which they are more than willing to do for you. We... More

It was only during our visit and talking to local colleagues afterwards that we realised this is one of the places to be 'seen' in Vienna. We only selected this restaurant on the basis that it was close to our hotel, looked like a nice riverside location and had attractive menu options. To the credit of the staff we arrived... More

Coming here from time to time with clients I really appreciate the excellent staff' and the high quality of the food. Fun location, but view from the restaurant is imho somehwhat less charming. I wouldn't go there for the view, but rather for the excellent quality of food and service. Overall a great place with excellent staff and great food.
