“Treat yourself”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

Meinl is not inexpensive, but it is one of those place that delivers on its price point. My wife and I had a perfect lunch here one afternoon in Vienna. Service is impeccable, food was excellent. The views over the square are quite pretty. It is a nice break from the hustle and bustle of Vienna.

“The source of the magic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

This is the place where you go for the food. Julius Meinl has its flagship store and restaurant here for a reason. And you want to have the full experience here. It has a stunning view and a magnificent store of delicatessens in the same building. I adore this place.

“Reservations are not valid on busy days...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

A really unique location at the top of the Graben on the first floor of the homonymous super market.
The cuisine is international of average to good quality. Service is a great risk and varies from friendly and professional to indifferent and pathetic. There is an extremely nice table right in the middle of the restaurant overlooking the Graben but the chances of you getting it under any conditions are less than 25%. A capable manager would make a huge difference and could place the establishment at the very top of Vienna, where it once was.
In any case, a drink at the bar would be well worth it if anybody cares to serve you...

“The gourmand's treasure trove ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

Through the doors of Meinl you will find a wonderland of the best food the world has to offer. Grab a basket and you'll doon find yourself grabbing a second as you walk through this well currated selection of food goodness. Oyster bar and restaurant on the 2f.
