We sat in a pleasant courtyard adjacent to a wine bar. It's near the hop on hop off bus stop (and yes we went there both coming and going). Rather suburban and touristy butt a nice selection of local wine and a good afternoon

A large restaurant with plenty of outside and inside seating. No beer sold, only wine and soft drinks. A very popular tourist area for evening dinning. Prices are very acceptable and food quality is good.

We visited this restaurant late in the evening and I suppose that this was the reason of the speed of the staff. It's a typical heuriger. The food was ok, the prices also. I would go again for sure...

Vienna’s poshest green leafy suburb is also its most
romantic hotspot. Walk up Grinzinger Strasse with its
many historic wine taverns. The tops of nearby
Nussberg and Reisenberg hills make for great strolls
through the vineyards, and the occasional discovery of
a hidden winery. Popular local weekend hangouts are
Neustift am Walde with even more great wine taverns,
and café restaurant Cobenzl, up on Cobenzl hill –
