The food was excellent and the choise was good enough. The restaurant is part of the Novotel hotel. The restaurant is quite modern and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

This place has outdoor eating, but I chose to be indoors. The menu is interesting with a number of Austrian specialities. Were able to provide advice on dishes and on allergy concerns. Had an excellent gulash, followed by a selection of sorbets. Staff were appropriately attentive.

I went to this restaurant with an Austrian friend as it was very close to my hotel. I had something which is similar to tafelspitz (boiled beef with vegetables), a traditional Austrian dish, and it was excellent. Unfortunately, forgot the name, as it was written in German, but as I was explained it is the same as tafelspitz just from... More

I had a main dish and a desert. The main dish, two different kind of pork, was not bad, but a very small portion. Too small. And the desert was a cheese platter. The cheese had no taste, slices of cheese and something like brie. The price/quality was below standard.

I had a small lunch. The food was Ok but the service could be more attentive. The restaurant has a terrace allowing outdoor seating.

I've been in Vienna for five nights and went here on the fifth and final night. To put it into context the previous evenings I dined at Fig Muller, Plachutta, and Glacis Biesl. They were all better experiences than the one I had at Five Senses. The restaurant looks very nice and is well presented - be aware it's attached... More

Interesting idea, but really depends on what you order. Some dishes tasty others not so much. Ok price wise. Not crowded. Went with colleagues but would not go again. A bit too wierd for me.

Booking a table here was a spontaneous decision and we did not regret this. The menu sounds unusual, however, the combination of the ingredients and the presentation says it all. We were very agreeably surprised by the food, the service was excellent, prices are democratic, we surely can recommend this place!

Thank Ernesto L

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighborhood Profile
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city center and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
