The VIEW!!!

Went for a drink on Saturday night, get there early if you want to get perfect seats to take in the view. Great drinks & friendly service. Good people watching too.

Of course, the view... People have written enough about it. So, I live in Vienna and considered this a tourist location. And maybe it is... But what most impressed me was the friendliness of the waiters at the bar. Busy Saturday night but they still made me feel very welcome. Very personal. Recommendations for food, cocktails and wine were very... More

I am surprised that this is not better rated - a thoroughly enjoyable evening with some delicious food. As the way with many rooftop panorama type view restaurants there is that dark, swanky feel but often the food can let it down. Luckily that is not the case with this restaurant and I was impressed with the level of service... More

We stayed at the Sofitel and had brunch here one morning. Nice selection and tasty. We also enjoyed cocktails at the bar several different nights and the drinks we potent, plentiful and not too pricey. The bartenders were excellent. But the real reason to go here is the view! Wow.

With our frequent travels, we ate fortunate and thankful to have the opportunity to dine at some of the best restaurants in the U.S. and Europe. Still it is a rarity to visit one like this often rated among the top 50 in the world. Our entrees as could be expected were outstanding, but what differentiated this from any other... More

Simply one of the best restaurants I've been to. Great view, great food and great wine. Attentive waiters. Not for the hungry though!

One of those restaurants where you pay mainly for the view. The restaurant is beautifully designed with an interesting ceiling and the tables have swivel chairs. The food suggests interesting combinations that more often come out a bit lacking in flavor so don't expect too much. The service is fantastic. The waiters heard us cheering for an occasion and brought... More

There is an elevated area for drinks with a large bar, and a lower part for dining, next to the huge windows. Both parts provide great views of the St. Stephens' and the Innere Stadt. The ceiling is a remarkable burning sky. The service is impeccable, appropriate to the setting, just as are the prices. Book in advance for a... More

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighborhood Profile
Leopoldstadt
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city center and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
