My colleague and I came to this restaurant with very high expectations after receiving a raving recommendation from a local. We had a hard time finding the restaurant since the address does not contain a street number... Obviously, as this restaurant is on the Danube River. Our taxi driver dropped us off at another ship-like building which was visible from the street. We ran into Hotel Capicorno to ask for directions and the woman at the front desk made it seem like the restaurant was right there across the street. Of course the only building obvious to us was the huge ship, we ran inside it as it was cold and snowing and we were late for our reservations (reservations are taken very seriously in Vienna!). There was another restaurant inside that boat, but the building itself seems more for cruise tours. The host at the other restaurant appeared offended we tried to ask for Holy Moly. We then exited and walked up the street a couple blocks before we saw the stairs leading to the Holy Moly ship. The place was relatively quiet at 8:30PM on a Saturday night. I believe it was non-smoking as we weren't bothered by smoke throughout our meal. The waiters were friendly and recommended a lot of dishes to us. We both had the cod which was in the most delicious seafood broth! We had the chocolate dessert and were not too impressed. There was a mousse (the only thing I finished), 2 pieces of chocolate, and 2 brownie-like pieces. I also had the fish curry soup as an appetizer but it was heavy on the coconut cream, not that it wasn't delicious. It was just not what I was expecting. When we exited the restaurant around 10-10:30PM, we saw that there was a line for the bar/club that was in the basement. We could not hear any music or activity from the bar/club while dining.
