Nice place on the rover

Motto am Fluss is really popular place in Vienna. We went there for a business dinner. The service was good, the food as well. It was winter, so we sat inside- they put us in one separate room/salon. This room was suitable more for dining, while there also some higher tables- I guess you can go... read more

Visit with a family of 7. It is easy to find, close to the subway stations, attentive staff (english speaking!), and we really enjoyed the food - 85 EUR for 7 (2 adults, 5 kids).

If you are into classic dishes and do not like a combination of mixing tastes then this place is not your choice. I really liked the food and the presentation. The combinations of ingredients might look awkward but if you appreciate such things then this place is a must to visit on the danube.

We visited on May Day (Austrian May Day, or "Labor Day", a Friday) on the recommendation from the taxi driver that took us from the airport to our hotel. It was a lovely sunny afternoon making the outside terrace especially appealing. We were initially very charmed by the place, it was busy and there was an excited buzz as we... More

The place is too commercial, the food is not actually great but average. The location and architecture of the place is nice, but i would definitely recommend it for a drink more then dinner.

Warm sunny day in Vienna...perfect place to stop for a bite to eat and something to drink. Great cocktails, good beer and champagne... The reason we know is it started to rain and so we stayed all afternoon in one of those impromptu dining sessions. Staff were fun and friendly, atmosphere was buzzing and full of laughter. If you happen... More

Situated inside the Wien-City ferry terminal on the Danube Canal, Motto am Fluss offers fantastic views over the Danube Canal. Interior is very stylish. Food is Austro-International with quality organic meats - excellent. Service is professional and friendly.

We had reservations for a group of 6 and were quickly seated at a comfortable table with a nice view of the canal. Decent wine list, bar mixed cocktails perfectly, and our waiter made sure we had plenty of water too. Dinner was quite good; the Atlantic char was really memorable. All in all, a good choice for a nice... More

I met a friend here for breakfast on a hot day, and it was lovely to sit on the open terrace overlooking the Danube canal in the center of Vienna. I had the Light House breakfast - "olive-oil egg" on baby spinach, grainy bread, veggie-sticks, lemon-ginger dip, and cottage cheese on bread. The food was very well prepared; the only... More

We went for a family dinner, not only the food was perfect but also the staff was very friendly and kind, we were very pleased to get such a service. Prices may be a little higher but it definitely worths for a night meal once in a lifetime :)

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.
