The view over Vienna is spectacular and it's worth a visit for that alone. I would stick to a drink in the bar instead of eating though - the food was just awful, especially given the high prices. It was one of the worst meals I've ever eaten! We were given a set menu where two of the courses were... More

Tried their 4 course menu - only so and so good was the desert. €280 for 2 with 1 bottle local wine. Whoever designed this restaurant menu needs to look for a different career path.... The... More

We did not eat at the restaurant, but we went to the bar in the evening for pre-dinner drinks, all I can say is what a view and if you are in Vienna you must go! Very contemporary with a sophisticated lounge feel - loved it!

We went here for a special occasion and it was definitely worth the effort and price (approx euros 230 for two). The view over the first district of Vienna is wonderful from every table. The service at every step of the way was also excellent. We had the four course menu where we found 3 of the four dishes were... More
