“Surprisingly OK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

When in Portugal we prefer local food, but on this occasion it was raining hard and we needed a meal after a museum visit and before a concert - so, a Viennese cafe was what we ended up with. That sounds negative and in fact the place is very much OK. It is relaxed - the sort of place where, if they know you, you can linger all afternoon over one cup of coffee (we saw it happening). Staff eat out front with the guests when they have a break, and they certainly tuck it away, which says something about the food. No complaints at all on that score: good home cooking at a decent price. The place is covered in Austrian film and theatre posters, so the receeation of central Europe is not at all bad. And we heard a member of staff speaking German, so it's not just fake. Worth a visit if you're looking for something a bit different.

“It is ok for its style.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

The food is ok and the Bud has no gas, tried it a couple of times. Good sachertorte! Sevice depends on the waiter that you get, but do not expect US standards.

“the service is one of the worst things I have experienced in my life”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

The place is beautiful, the location is amazing and the food is good. However the people and the service provided is one of the worst things I've experienced in my life... Rude staff and un-proper behavior...

“Vienna in Lisbon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Is good to have a café that reminds me of the Erasmus in Vienna so close to my home. They have all the specialities from Vienna: the Sacher Torte, the coffee, the food and Ottakringer(Beer). Es ist toll!
