The food was fun and delightful to enjoy. Lots of different combinations of taste. For us, there were some hits and a few misses, but the hits definitely outshined the misses. The service was good and the environment was lovely. We had a great time...here.More

So first of all, amazing food. Taste is excellent so is the wine pairing But I have to say there werd a few things that bothered me. First of all the volume of the glasses. I expected full glasses., but theo were half glasses. Secondly....We had to stop the waiter to pour the wine in a used glass. To be honest when you have a wine paring you don’t expect them to pour a different wine in an already used glass with a different wine, that you dont’t have enough glasses to change everyone’s glass for a different one, is not the guests problem. Also the explanation of the wine is quite short. Only saying the producer, country, grape and year. Come on you van do better, that are the thing I can read myself on the bottle. Furthermore to make it a stellar evening, maybe it is an idea to have 2 personage in the front instead of just one person. Some indivudual atention would elevate the experience. But to end it with a positive note, we enjoyed the food and the wine very much, so we would recommend people to go here to enjoy fine food en good wines.More

Fine dinning, not really. One cook to prepare meal for almost 20 guests, one full time server and one part time server. You waited 30 mins for each dish to come out and not every single one was delicious. Started with a heavy pork belly...dish, then scallop. A fine dinning restaurant would have started with a lighter one and worked into heavier dish. Service was terrible, smokey from the kitchen, hot inside. Try it only if you have time and money to waste.More

This was a great experience! We were visiting with a family of 4 and really wanted to try a local tasting menu. This restaurant did not disappoint! I had searched other chefs choice menus in the area and this was the most reasonably priced. Each...course was unique and delicious! The server was kind and attentive. We also had a severe nut allergy in the group and they payed close attention to that which we greatly appreciated. We also enjoyed the wine pairings which made the experience even better. We loved every wine and they matched the meals wonderfully. This gave us the opportunity to try new wines we wouldn't have tried otherwise! Definitely recommend! We left Loca feeling full and happy.More

They pride themselves in efficiency, I suppose. There was one waiter, who was efficient but far from welcoming. There is, as expected, one set menu, although If you have dietary restrictions they are very accommodating. That would be fine if the food were delicious or...the price were commensurate with the food. We paid twice what we paid at another wonderful restaurant and got much worse food and a less pleasant experience. Nice enough atmosphere. Would not go back.More

Loca is my husband and my favourite restaurant in Vienna. We have been here at least 20 times since we first came across this amazing place in 2019. We love it that much! The food and wine are always amazing and we really appreciate the...amazing service provided every time by Dennis and his colleagues. We love that we don't need to think about the menu/decide as other than asking about likes/dislikes and allergies, we just need to decide on the amount of meals and then sit back and be wowed.More

Make a reservation. Now! Lovely experience. We planned on the three-course dinner, but when I saw online how interesting the selections were, I talked my fiancé into going for the six-course version. I’m still amazed at how fluidly they accommodated our different preferences (I’m the...meat eater). Significant portions, very creative, beautifully presented. Obviously a labor of love.More

Great place if you want the restaurant to choose your meal. Generally, I do not like set meals. It does not work well for me. It was a mistake to go. I am sure this restaurant is an amazing experience for many. We went early...because we could just have three course instead of six. We were asked if we had allergies. Then when I realized I was going to be given no choice about the food, I said that this really would not work for me. For instance, I don’t eat carbs. The waiter said, the only carbs were the bread they serve (which we did not eat). That was untrue. The first course was an over dressed salad full of croutons. The wait said, that I should tell him what I don’t like to eat. I don’t really carry that list in my head. For instance the second course was venison. I don’t eat that. It came with some vegetables which I enjoyed. Since I did not eat the venison, the waiter brought me a salmon dish but I don’t like salmon. My wife enjoyed it. The desert was plumb, poppy seed crepes. So much for the no carbs statement. The waiter was nice but authoritarian. It certainly was our mistake for going there. Many will love this place. We did not.More
