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

We were staying in a hotel very close and tried the cafe for breakfast. It was a great spot perched right on the Danube (it was a rainy day, unfortunately, so we sat inside), with great, fresh food choices.

Motto is well known as Restaurant - this time we tried the cafe for breakfast. Happyend enough we had great weather and sat outdoors with a nice view over the river and the folks walking along there. The breakfast menue looks a bit disappointing but in fact both the set breakfasts (I tried "Heimathafen") as well as the components are... More

We were lucky enough to score a table for dinner in the restaurant without booking. The maitre d' was charming and efficient and made us feel most welcome. The food was top notch - I had the pork and it knocked spots off the pork chop I had at Heston Blumenthal's Dinner two weeks before. One of my fellow diner's... More

Motto am Fluss is a restaurant overlooking the Donaukanal as part of the structure used for the ferry heading east down the river. It is a mid-range restaurant offering slightly upmarket food without being too expensive. Motto is a popular and busy place so is not easy to get a table. The best option seems to be Friday lunch in... More

Went with my wife for dinner on a Wednesday. The waitress was not in the best of moods. Our questions regarding dishes and drinks were met with her rolling eyes. I ordered steak (bio beiried), the meat was hard although the sauce was tasty. Wife ordered gnocchi, again the food was average. After the food, didn't feel like ordering the... More
