Went to this place for a cool night(as cool as over 50 can get)

Place was hidden but a cool place but a lot of young beautiful women, which can cause your spouse not to like it. Food was different but good. Had watermelon and goat cheese, fresh and good and fried chicken for dinner. That was tasty but slight dry. Have to me top the mirrors at the... read more

This place is soooo much fun. Great decor but not for the shy (the loos are fully mirrored, as are the tables). Delicious takes on brasserie staples. Cool staff. We went three times on our weekend to Vienna.

Delicious food. Exquisite. Good wine card. Beautiful locale. Good service. Can come with kids but not sure it's their scene.. Rather motto on the boat at Schwedenplz if with kids. This one is more for romantic and parties dinners. Truly great atmosphere. Would go again. (went 3 times already).

We were recommended to this bar-restaurant during our stay in Vienna. The kitchen is open late, which served us perfect to go after an opera performance. Our waiter was extremely attentive and made certain recommendations which turned out to be the best. The suggested Cabernet Sauvignon was superb. The steak tartar was wonderful, the filet with chocolate chilli sauce was... More

Their website booking was impossible if you couldn't read German and/or using a mobilephone. When you get to the restaurant address, if using Google maps, the actual entrance is tucked away around the corner off Rudigergasse with only a small sign. Inside, the decor is luxury quirkiness with mood lighting, dark purple walls with baby dolls (!?) and infinity mirrored... More

Great atmosphere, superfunny waiters, good music in the speakers and the tournedau with chili-chocolate sauce was to die for!! And smoke free!! All you need in a restaurant. Medium prices, well worth it.

Very good food, cool atmosphere, excellent service, very good wine choices. Motto (as opposed to Motto am Fluss- which is not nearly as good) has it all.

Staying in Margareten

Neighborhood Profile
Margareten
This former working class district blends hip eateries and avant-garde cinema with a time travel into 1950s Vienna. Feel the district’s pulse at Margaretenhof and Schlossquadrat. 19th-century Margaretenhof is a local icon, yet has very non-Viennese architecture with its brick structure and cast-iron verandas. The nearby urban Renaissance castle of Schlossquadrat houses several restaurants. In the summer you can sit in its romantic shady courtyard over Schnitzel and Kracherl (traditional fizzy syrup). Siebenbrunnenplatz and its surrounding shops and grocery stores have remained virtually unchanged in the past 60 years: taking a walk there is like stepping into a 1950s film set. Speaking of movies, head to avant-garde cinema Filmcasino in the evening. It often stages foreign language cult films.
