Perfect for brunch

Great venue for easy Sunday matinee with friends. Or just to feel the Wien vibe at any time. Staff tries to be classy at times but ends as an overrated failure.

Perfect start for a sunny saturday! Delicious food, very nice and polite staff, gorgeous view of the Danube! Everything is carefully prepaired. Don't miss the house berry jam.

My partner and I visited here twice during our stay in Vienna, a dinner and a brunch. The staff were excellent, and the food was divine, especially the Schnitzel! Yes, it's not the cheapest place to eat, but the quality and perfection of the food, along with the service makes it more than worthwhile! Very recommended!

Food is expensive but excellent. Its very busy though and not the best place for a romantic dinner. Its perfect for larger groups or celebrations. Quite fancy and people tend to dress up

We visited Motto am Fluss three times during our stay in Vienna - we enjoyed ourselves every single one. We ordered for sandwiches, they were really really good. Their pear souffle was heaven... The place was always full, but the service was impeccable.

One of the best place to have a weekend brunch. The best cocktail which I taste all over the world and name of it "little dragon" Please make a reservation to have a brunch in that place.

A beautiful restaurant in the Danube with great service and very nice food. Local options with creativity in a extensive menu. Good wine list. Be prepared to spend money. A good place to see beautiful people.

In Vienna? Good! Go to Motto Am Fluss! We are always looking for restaurants with a not too complicated menus, but with perfect execution. Motto Am Fluss is just that. We went for Dinner during December 2015, and since we were 6 people, we ordered 6 different main courses. each cooked to perfection. I highly recommend the Schnitzel (the best... More

Went there for lunch on arrival straight from airport! It was recommended by a friend. Good food and great location. Enjoyed it so much, booked a table for last night in Vienna. It's not the cheapest place in town, but the choice and quality of the food is worth it.

Cafe has modern interior and huge terrace overlooking the Daube Canal. Been there several times - only for breakfast/brunch. Always great food, relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere. I love the place mostly for the "sunday morning" atmosphere.If dining inside you might be seated at one of the big "community tables", so if you don't like random company - make sure you... More

Staying in Old University Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse, Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories and legends that will enrich your Vienna experience.
