We were a party of six and dined here on New Year's Eve. We all had some form of fish soup and all were fine. I had the lobster and cream soup and it was divine. For seconds I had the giant prawns and they were delicious. My wife had the salmon and it was lovely. Service was also very good. Overall very good restaurant.

Went to this place after reading great recommendations on the Internet. The food was amazing, Lobster soup, amazing experience and fish prepared right in front of you, so you know it is fresh, well that was just beyond expectations.

One thing that put me off was bread, which was not really fresh and kind of hard, Another thing which is rather matter of taste was the set up on the table, I mean pink, is really not my type of color, but pink table-cloth in a restaurant? Seriously? :-)

Went with modest expectations however the service was attentive but not intrusive, the lobster bisque was equal best to that had 20 years ago. My wife's king prawns were large and tasty, and my house special mixed special of 3 fish and a king prawn were perfectly grilled without a hint of dryness. The ambiance was good and I enjoyed being able to watch the chiefs. All in all good value for money and perfect when you have trialled all the traditional dishes and are looking for international quality

This is a must-stop if you live in a land-locked country, as I do, and crave fresh seafood. All produce is visible to customers, as is the food preparation. Service is almost always slick. The quality of the seafood is sensational and the team of chefs always seems able to deliver perfect meals. The downside is that this restaurant is not cheap - given my craving for great seafood meals, however, it is a price I am prepared to pay on each trip to Vienna.

We have been many times to Kervansaray and have never been disappointed. The restaurant is plush and comfortable without being over formal. If you wish you can watch your fish being cooked as the three chefs whizz slickly about behind the counter with its extensive display of fish and lobster. If you prefer, you can sit further down the room and relax in a cosy corner. If the restaurant isn't full, they will cook to your request as well as from the menu. Try their Lobster bisque, rich and full flavoured with morsels of lobster in its depths. Follow this with the 'Skipper', mixed fish including turbot in lemon butter sauce. Finish with a chocolate souffle, light and fluffy. You can watch it being prepared at the dessert counter which is stacked high with fresh fruit. Local wines are worth trying, Service is smooth without being fussy. Prices are good value for a good restaurant in a capital city. Meat dishes are also available. You can book on line, which is a good idea at weekends anfd holidays.
