A location convenient to many sights. We ate out on the patio overlooking the Burggarten. Good food, good drink, good people watching.

We were a group of around 18 colleagues going out for a post meeting dinner. This was the perfect place. Not overly expensive, but very good food and a nice wine selection. Service was good and the acustics perfect for talking

We ate lunch here. The food was very good, although not the best we had in Vienna. However, the location can't be beat. Beautiful setting and great people watching. Do make a point of stopping here, even if only for a cup of coffee or a beer.

This place is gorgeous. It is located inside the former glass arboretum garden of the Palace, right next door. It's full of tall palm trees inside. The outside tables have view of the largest park in the city. Wonderful place! Scallops and Schnizel were superb.

The setting is delightful and the food lives up to it. We were looking for something out of the ordinary and this place on the park was a great choice. We started out with the pea soup which was light and creamy and followed it with the rack of lamb accompanied by fresh spinach, eggplant and watermelon. The sauce was... More

When we asked our Viennese friends for a seafood restaurant there was no hesitation to bring us here. The seafood platter contained local whitefish, trout, salmon, octopus, and calamari, all grilled to perfection. The calamari platter contained large tubes cooked perfectly. The white list was extensive and the service was prompt. The setting, in the conservatory of the Imperial Castle,... More

Four of us went for dinner here and we were not disappointed. We reserved a table and were seated inside but our table was right by the opening to the outside air so we had the best of both worlds. The conservatory interior is really amazing and provides quite the backdrop to dinner. We all had the excellent grilled fish... More

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.

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.
