We enjoyed a perfect burger by the Danube at night. Great views of the lit up buildings nearby. Didn't have a reservation but the waiter found us a table outside. Recommended.

My husband and I went for breakfast at the outdoor cafe and enjoyed a nice view of the Danube and people watching. Pricy food although tasty - you pay for the atmosphere more than the meal.  Omelette was 7 euros while the breakfast sandwich was 10 euros. Downside is there is no English menu which is strange given the number... More

This restaurant is located on the river. The food is a bit of fusion but has excellent local and international food. Try to book the window seat as it will give you an excellent view of the river.

Maybe the worst service in Austria after Sacher Cafe. Employees despise their clients. They literally have no time for you, they roll their eyes or shrug their shoulders if you ask questions. We asked one lady if she had English menu she said no and left... For the food we tried quite a few things, burger was average, their green... More

We wanted to eat on the river, spotted Motto am Fluss, and quickly looking up reviews, decided to give it a try. It was packed, and we didn't have reservations, but they set up a table by the window, and found a way to fit us in. It's neat inside and has a nice lively vibe. We enjoyed our food,... More

This restaurant was twice recommended by two different hotel ambassadors during my four days stay in Vienna, so I had high hopes when I arrived. However, my party of four found the service sufficient but the staff could do with a bit more genuine smiles. Tomato gazpacho was good; tomato mozzarella was good with two generous thick rounds of mozzarella;... More

Went here for drinks and dinner. Drinks upstairs on the outdoor cafe. Amazing view of the canal and city. And then dinner down below. Many say it is not worth it but I think the room is beautiful, service for Austria is some of the best, and the food was fantastic. The wine list also was good. If you want... More

We went there with my family and relatives (including a 2 year old boy). The staff was very friendly and there were many servants so you did not have to wait like for hours. The food (I ate a Burger with Bacon) was absolutely delightful! I am a person to eat many burgers so I think I can compare them... More
