“Nice dinner on Friday evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Martin Syeiner, the man at the door , made us feel welcome at 22.00h after the concert at the University. The restuarant is a narrow long "side of a boat" on the river.
We had pike perch and beef cheek. Both excellent - really excellent. A couple of drinks and then home. It was crowded - Russians and Austrian locals. Rather tight - the waiters had to push past us and the rest of the clients. The music was booming and not really useful to create a good feel. But a good dinner...

“Stylish behind glass”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Right at the river you find 'Motto am Fluss' - well, finding the entrance to the restaurant in fact is a bit difficult due to confusing signs, but you actually get in there through the cafe....

Good and attentive service, a good wine list and innovative dishes with a local Austrian twist, tasty and sometimes surprising.

The view on Vienna and the sorrounding buildings together with a stylish-posh interior makes it a perfect match for a fancy but not too formal evening.

“THE place to come and sample perfect cocktails in Vienna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Fantastic, inspired menu of delicious cocktails, welcoming and professional staff, dj's on weekends, can be very crowded on a Saturday night with fun and mixed crowd, but really feels like going out. This place has all that, "Le Loft" across the river is missing. Have a drink when coming back from your 1,5 hour boat ride to Bratislava (which arrives and departs right on that pier).

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Nice modern and fusion cuisine. Modern ambiance, with an eye on the Danube and another of the Sofitel.
Excellent music, maybe a bit high volume, but giving a very nice ambiance. Very good cuisine, to try!!
