Have used just the Terasse for a coffee before leaving Vienna with Twin City Liner. Was great and tasty, service very quick. Location is fabulous over the Danube canal. Can only recommend.

Started with cold tomato soup app... Wonderfully simple and tasty. Then moved on to the traditional Wiener Schnitzel with a cranberry compote and delicious German potato salad as a side. The food and view were amazing, and the service was very friendly, especially when we tried to practice our German with the waitstaff. Be aware there is a cover charge... More

A great place indeed on the banks of the Danube-canal some 10 minutes walk from the cathedral. The service people were most attentive. The wine list includes some of the best Austrian wines. The food we had was most brillantly cooked, a modern Austrian cuisine.

Motto am Fluss is in a very nice location, with a nice view on Donaucanal. It offers a good variety of food for breakfast and lunch, the quality is also good. In the end, I was really satisfied by this choice. Do not forget to book or you will not probably find a place!

We chose Motto am Fluss for our wedding anniversary meal and had a lovely evening. The food was innovative. We were offered a menu in English and looked after very well (in contrast to other reviewers it would seem). Overall, the evening was pricier than we had paid at other restaurants in Vienna but I would say it was worth... More

The restaurant overlooks one of the canals and is located next to the booking office for the boat service to Bratislava. It looks more impressive at night when illuminated and the restaurant is spacious and airy. Service was good although the first waiter was new on the job and did not know what the daily specials were and couldn’t describe... More

The staff were lovely and stayed late to feed us. Bar upstairs on "deck" was pleasant Food was fine. Thank you kitchen staff for letting us have apple strudel from the cafe as you don't serve it in the restaurant usually. I'd go again but there are so many great restaurants in Vienna I wouldn't make a bee line for... More

Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse, Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories and legends that will enrich your Vienna experience.
