I just went there this week for lunch, heard that it might be good. Former it was known as a gay-bar but the guests are very mixed. Staff is nice and speaks with an austrian accent which makes it quite authentic. Food was very nice and portions were enough.

Next to Bellevue, the location is perfect to grab a quick dinner & beer and go to the movies afterwards. There's not a great choice of food though.

During world war one, it used to be the meeting place of the Dadaïsts and James Joyce. Today it is still worth to look at the decoration, it is the most beautiful cafe, then the one in Vienna/Wien in the Kinsky Palace used to be a Bank.
