“could be great”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

but operates far below its potential. what a beautiful setting, nice exotic vegitation, great feel in the special building.....but somehow overcrowded and unefficient. whilst staff was friendly it took ages to get our basic meals. they offer many seats in this restaurant, actually too many as it was very very narrow.... but seems kitchen is not up to same capacity. waited >45 min.... but meals were quite ok.
anyway - somwhow recommended but dont expect too much.

“Beautiful scenery”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Exotic looking, old but beautiful building inside the Burggarten in the Center of Vienna. I thought the coffee there would be very expensive but prices are normal. Only the hors d'oevre are expensive, the one I had (smoked duck with beetroot and rocket) was not the best thing to have but was ok. Also they have beautiful sweets and very big Schnitzels but I did not try them. In all it is the best place for a break during your visit in Vienna.

“Park dining in greenhouse”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Quite unusual dining with like 10 meters ceilings and some tall tropical trees around.

I had a bouillon (quite nice), salmon with pumpkin (smoked salmon was nice, pumpkin - boring), and tortellini (nice but not perfect).

Drinks and wine was good for the reasonable Vienna price. I will definitely come back for the drinks but not too sure about food.

“Elegant Lunch”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Ate a late lunch here after a morning of touring. Food and service was excellent. Atmosphere was very pleasing and soothing. A great place to relax away from the bustle of Vienna.
