Wonderful place for lunch

Spent an absolutely beautiful time here for lunch. Very pleasant surroundings, wonderful meal and a friendly waiter who told me of his times serving at the Canadian Embassy once he knew we were from Canada. Wonderful place to take a break from touring.

We went for drinks and appetizers on a weekday afternoon. We shared several starters including the fish tartar and goat cheese. The kitchen sent bread with an olive tapaneade which was also nice. One child in our party ordered the hot dog and the other ordered the Wiener schnitzel, both kids liked their meals. The service was friendly, with menus... More

The concierge recommended this restaurant and I loved it! It was inside a park not too far from our hotel. We sat outside facing the park and loved the ambience and the food. Delicious!

The food is great from starters to main dish to desserts, but the service is extremely annoying and bad, we had a reservation for 25 people at 9.00pm, the starters was served at around 10.30. Other than that the food was extremely good

Stopped here for lunch after visiting nearby attractions. The restaurant is inside a former palm house (basically a giant greenhouse) which makes an interesting setting. All 4 of us chose fish and all 4 dishes were delicious. We also shared a good bottle of Austrian reisling and a bottle of red; cost was about €33 per person which was very... More

The people are very relaxed and the athmosphere is great. The prices are a little bit high, but...it is Vienna! It în Italy an espresso cost... More

Especially in summer, it's nice to sit outside and enjoy the sun. However, the prices are ridiculously high. Also, the service is not as good as it should be for such an expensive place. I would recommend going to the park but drinking your coffee somewhere else.

The place is near a park. If the weather is good, you can sit down outside and enjoy the breeze. It's quite busy in mealtimes, so try to go for a snack in between lunch and dinner. That is when the weather is at its best.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
