We wanted a place near our hotel as we had been out and about all day. This was very convenient and the food was fine. The moussaka was a bit bland and all the many layers melded together without distinction. The pork souvlaki was coated with flavoring rather than marinated in it. The house white wine was the worst we had in Austria and a 3 Euro cover charge paid for the bread that came without butter, oil, or anything to flavor it. We would have preferred to decline it. Service was disinterested.

Travelled with a group of friends. Set out to locate a restaurant recommended on tripadvisor . could not find location and happened to pass by Achilleus. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting vienna. a great experience and lovely location near Stephansdom. No smoking in the restaurant was a major plus. will go again when I visit Vienna . Very reasonably priced. mainly meat and fish dishes, not a great selection for vegetarians, I had two starters instead of main course and they were excellent.

This is a good Greek food restaurant, with kind people to serve us. Food is simple but well prepared and prices reasonable. We would come back some day when visiting Vienna again and you should, too.

Put this on your list because you will tire of wiener schnitzel!! Lamb chops were tender and delicious. Pita bread was served hot! Enjoyed the baklava too. Smoke free restaurant is a plus.

Achilleus is less than a five minute walk from St. Stephen's square. This cosy "no smoking" restaurant provides a good choice of Greek food, including some traditional dishes which are usually only found in Greece itself. The owner as well as the staff are all from Greece and happy to provide information on the entries on the menu. Apart from their native Greek language and German they are fluent in (at least) English and Italian. Some of the waiters appeared to be "new" (or "practising") - but they were friendly and very committed.
A table at one of the big windows to the narrow street comes close to the experience of a "sidewalk cafe", and can be particularly pleasant on a warm day (with the windows completely open).
Another positive feature in my view - in addition to the complete absence of cigarette smoke - is the absence of music, which in many other ethnic restaurants can be nerve racking. Here there are just a few nice photographs of Greek sites on the walls and the general "colour theme" is blue and white, but guests are not harassed with "Zorbas" or any other "typical" music.
