Spanish/Mexican

Staff was alright. Tried making small talk in Spanish but one of the employees specifically didn't seem too interested. For ~€7.70 you can get a burrito that comes with rice, beans, chicken, guac, cheese, light salsa and jalapeños. I have to say that while I was craving Mexican food, this place... read more

This place is a rip off, unfriendly and then they complain if you are on the phone while ordering. They stuff the tacos with rice, beans and so on. If you are don't eat cheese and so on and therefore want some extra guacamole, don't worry. No problem, they just charge a tons for extrait second time we came here... More

this isn't a romantic evening kind of place - the decor is steel and glass and you queue up to have your food made to order in front of you. but the folks there are really friendly, they work on adding interesting variations and new menu items, and the quality is good. go for the burritos rather than the tacos...

In my opinion, as far as the food is concerned, the best place for Mexican food you can find in Vienna. So if you want to have really tasty food that will leave you satisfied for hours, you can be sure you'll find it there. My reason for not going there more than once every two months are the following:... More

This place is basically Mexican takeaway / self service cafeteria: you enter, look at the board and the staff make your order as you wait and watch. There are a couple of spaces downstairs to sit or your can go upstairs where there is more space in case you want to eat in. Staff have always been super friendly and... More

We went to this place in the evening with my girlfriend. Only I was hungry so we ordered one quesadilla and we wanted to eat it quickly so that we can go on with our duties for that day. After we waited for around 15 minutes for the food to get ready, the waitress told us that we can't have... More

I love this place, and try to stop every time I am in Vienna. I have read in other reviews that people have found the American owner a bit rude? I think that is far from fair. I found him very accomodating, and had two nice chats with him different times. Certainly worth the stop, particularly for late night take... More

Staying in Serviten Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
Serviten Quarter
The Serviten Quarter is an inner city neighborhood with many private charms. Popular with French and American expats, Sigmund Freud’s neighborhood boasts his former practice and apartments, now turned into a museum. Stunning Liechtenstein Garden Palace houses the private art collection of Prince Adam of Liechtenstein. Romantic Strudlhofstiege close to the palace is a fantastic photo spot. With their small independent shops and eateries, the main streets of Liechtensteinstrasse, Porzellangasse and Servitengasse reveal much of this area’s character. Peek into baroque Serviten Church, with its richly decorated dome and walls. At the Old Jewish cemetery in Seegasse you can see one of the most precious cemeteries in Europe with tombstones almost 500 years old.
