So first off, you won't find many tourists here. Even our waiter noted that they don't see many Americans, unless they are visiting friends who live in Vienna, because it is a little hard to locate. It's almost completely hidden behind a big steel door, but once you find it and step inside, you will find an extraordinarily hip restaurant... More

The concierge at our hotel recommended this restaurant as a young and trendy place with an innovative chef. He was spot on! The only caveat is that the address is not exactly correct, since the front door is really around the corner from the given street number, which is the site of the catering operation. We enjoyed the food, the... More

We visited Vienna for the weekend and had a great time. We art dinner here on Saturday night, it was so delicious. The service was good and very helpful. I would recommend going. The baby dolls glues to the walls and ceiling was an interesting choice of decor!

I liked this restarant a lot, it has a modern vibe, very cosmopolitan with a very diverse group of people (when dining Conchita Wurtz was there with a very colourful crowd, great fun). food is very nice, menu is flexible and price is very good. So for informal dinners, it is highly recommended

been here just a week ago! kind of a classy and luxurious restaurant. service was really good, the food was absolutely great!! prices are not at all cheap, but not expensive especially (2 entrees, 2 main dishes and a good bottle of wine for about 110 euros). regarding atmosphere, it was pretty quiet when we were there, so no real...

The location is not really in the city center. also there isn't any sign almost that this restaurant exist which I guess is one of the reason made this restaurant special. inside is really cozy, surprisingly always full of nice people. the food is also good. specially steak with chili chocolate sauce. I think it can be a good location... More

Came here for New Year's Eve dinner. Food and service were both excellent given the number of tables they were coping with that night. Nice funky vibe. Friendly atmosphere. Cocktails were well made. Entrance can be a bit difficult to find though - round the corner from where you think it should be!

Having lived in Europe for 4 years this is by far the best steak I have had! It was so tender and cooked to perfection. The service was excellent and I will definitely be returning. I went on a Sunday and it was Steak Night so there were about 6 different steaks to choose from! I cannot believe some recent... More

The reviews here were RAVE so we figured we'd try. This is a GAY BAR. Purple ceiling with baby doll parts sticking out - dark, dingy and disgusting. My 7 and 9 yo kids were thoroughly confused. Luckily, my husband staked it out before our reservation, which we quickly cancelled. Not for families. The food would have to be REALLY... More

A good menu, good wine list, and the waiters (all fit young men) nice on the eye as well as both efficient and competent. They spoke excellent English and explained the dishes in some detail. We suggested our taste in wine, and we were recommended two at the cheapest end of the list. We were very pleased with the outcome.... More
