Visited for drinks in between sight seeing. We honestly didn't think it was anything special. Enjoyed our drinks but could of had them anywhere! Service not great and so many smokers sat around us and we are a non smoking family. Not sure I would recommend!

The food is a little expensive, but the view of Stephansdom is worth it. Modern decor and attentive service.

Bar advertise good rooftop bar? Not very good. Only 7th floor and nothing special view, very boring. Winelist is very small and very basic choices without any specialities or excellent suprises. Service normal Austrian service: not good not bad and not very friendly.

We went here for a drink on a lovely sunny afternoon and really enjoyed the views over Vienna. After an initial long wait for someone to come and serve us the waiter was friendly, polite and the drinks were served promptly. The food looked delicious too. Prices were on the high side.

We went to enjoy the view whilst ordering drinks and Apple Strudel with our friends. We received the drinks promptly and our friends received their strudel. We asked the waitress where ours was and she told us a colleague would bring it. To cut a long story short, after 30 minutes, asking 3 times more about our order, receiving no... More

I had lunch there today, and the service I had from the two men working was the best I've had since arriving in Vienna 3 days ago. The drinks were good, and the view was amazing. The food was good but not the best I've had which is the only reason I'm giving this 4 instead of 5 stars.

The balcony at Sky bar has great views of the cathedral, but otherwise I wouldn't really recommend this place for a visit. We went for some drinks and it completely lacked atmosphere; there was no music playing and it is sparsely decorated. Staff are professional but quite cold and it is overpriced. All in all, it was quite disappointing. For... More

We went with a local friend who had recommended the view which was wonderful. The dinner on the terrace was very good and the service fast and efficient. It was a sunday night so there were not many guests and a warm evening so in fact the sky bar met all our expectations.

Thank rtb54

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
