Description: Closed until 10.11. . The "Badeschiff Wien" is not only swimming pool, not only restaurant and not only Bar and under-water-club. It is a diverse and varied location of urban lifestyle for 365 days a year. The floating Badeschiff pool for sure is one of the summer hot spots in Vienna. Our flying soccer-cage above the pool is an attraction for an active summer-day at Badeschiff Wien. The main deck is the central gastronomy unit. With the Badeschiff-galley run by "Elena Grosso" and the stpectacular Tank-Beer-Bar it is the central indoor guest room and something like the command centre. On the same deck the so called Runbase Vienna found a perfect homebase. A gym, lounge and locker rooms were constructed on the bow of the ship and are operated in cooperation with Adidas as a hot-spot for people with an active and atheltic urban lifestyle. Further attractcions are the 9-pin-Bowling in the Laderaum and especcially the sundeck, the special location for the sunny days of the year!

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.

chocolates for desert were delicious, service relaxed but efficient . husband thought my choices were better than his . the signature starter of beef was amazing , Surroundings -different being on the canal but the view from our table to the side was not very pleasant , old walls and graffiti need smartening up for a better view , Good luck to a great chef, worth a visit !

The food was first class, really delicious and quite unusual combinations. Not for the fussy eater! The service was relaxed but friendly, spent a lovely evening here!

We accidentally stumbled across this place after having a drink at the bar across from it. Having spent the afternoon taking pictures of the excellent graffiti along the canal, Holy Moly was another lovely discovery in Vienna. The ambience was excellent, very 'cool' yet completely comfortable and unpretentious. The guys found us a table and had no issue with our 8 year old and whilst the menu wasn't extensive all the dishes we had were extremely good and excellent value for money. It was lovely to find something a little unique when we weren't expecting it. Good work Holy Moly and thanks for a great night out.

fun to eat on a boat on the canal, but i wasn't blown away by the menu or the food. our dishes were tasty and well prepared, and the service was accommodating and friendly (considering we don't speak the local tongue). but i'm not sure it merits "vienna's hottest destination"...we found it irritating to be charged for napkins and bread that we didn't order. is that a europe thing? it was the only time we saw it...
