Overrated, overpriced, rushed. In and out in just over an hour. Unqualified staff. Too bad, because the food is not bad at all. Nice interior, but since it is a narrow building, try to avoid the area far away from the bar, because you will...More

Although the setting is great, I think it's a bit overpriced for its value. On a mondayevening the place was crowded and the waiter was a bit confused. Beef tartare was good. Calimari was okay but the potatochips were brown-burned.. for an overrated 20 euro...More

Our group of 11 had dinner here in the garden area. We all loved our food. Interestingly enough though, for some reason on a Monday night the bar wasn't open so that we couldn't get mixed drinks. Also be warned, the garden must close at...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
