So disappointed after reading good reviews. This place is way overpriced for very ordinary food. This goose was tough and flabby with unrendered fat, two potato dumplings and cabbage for not much under €30. Could have been so much better. Whole bill with just two...More

What looked like a promising start turned fast into the ridiculous. Clearly, someone had thought about the interior in this place but by the time they got to the courtyard they either ran out of ideas or money. Or possibly both. Having been left in...More

This is one of a kind restaurant and bar in Vienna. The interior and service is more London or New York than Vienna, which is often known for unfriendly waiters and boring design. Motto is very stylish, delicious and great quality food, very friendly (and...More

This former working class district blends hip eateries
and avant-garde cinema with a time travel into 1950s
Vienna. Feel the district’s pulse at Margaretenhof and
Schlossquadrat. 19th-century Margaretenhof is a local
icon, yet has very non-Viennese architecture with its
brick structure and cast-iron verandas. The nearby
urban Renaissance castle of Schlossquadrat houses
several restaurants. In the summer you can sit in its
