We went late Wednesday night for a cocktail. It was worth a visit and experience. Gives a different view from a beer Keller

I usually associate bars/restaurants a certain number of floors up with a good view - all you can see from here is air conditioning units!
The food here though was the saving grace, we all had beef which was very tender and nicely presented. The staff were helpful but the lighting was a little too low - we almost couldn't see what we were eating.

Absolutely dissapointing visit. You see only roofs around - very close and absolutely unpleaseant - and St.Stefan roof. Overpriced cocktails. That's it.

Very yound and dynamic staff, as far as we observed they really did their best to place all the guests coming to the Sky Bar.Nevertheless during the week-ends I would recommand to make a reservation to be sure. Cocktails are not cheap at all (at least 12€), beers around 6€, despite of that this place is definitely not so snobish like the Sky bar from th Do&Co hotel in Vienna. On Friday evening there was a female singer who did a great performance. Unfortunately it was too cold to sit outside but the view on the Dom and the city are very nice. You can smoke in the bar, so if you can't stand the smoke, dont even try this bar. All in all we spent two great evenings in this bar. On the opposite side of the bar there is a restaurant also with great view on the city but we did not test it.

Little bit complicated access by two lifts (or by a lift and then stairs) through the shopping passage. Restaurant itself has a nice interior and a terrace with view towards the St. Stephan´s Cathedral. There´s a limited number of the seats on the terrace, so prior reservation is recommended, if you would like to enjoy the view.

Our experience:
We´re welcomed by the manager and seated inside (as all tables on the terrace were occupied at the moment), but we´ve asked to be seated on the terrace once one of the tables will become available. From the time we´re seated, nobody paid any attention to us, nobody brought the menus or even a drink menus... So, after waiting for roughly 5 minutes, I´ve called the manager and asked for menus. We´ve ordered, food was really excellent, but at the same time little bit overpriced. While we´re eating, several tables on the terrace have become empty, but other people were seated there, so I´ve asked the waiters to relocate us to the terrace (as we´ve previously agreed with them) so that we can enjoy the view. Finally, after we ate everything, they´ve relocated us to the terrace and we were considering the desserts or some more drinks, but again, from the time we were seated nobody paid any attention to us, so we have decided to leave and also to leave no tip for the service...

To sum it up: Nice restaurant with not so nice entrance, excellent food, overpriced, but, what´s the most important and really unpleasant - with unattentive and supercilious staff, which is counter effecting all of the benefits of this restaurant.
