First had a chicken soup which taste like Asian chicken instant noodle soup. Followed by a meat platter of pork and chicken. The pork was too salty and chicken was too dry. Ended with fish and potatoes and pork with sausage and potatoes. Both only...More

I was staying closer to the City but wanted to try a Heuriger. Grinzing was just 5 min journey using the 38 tram so thought I'd give it a try. The tram terminal is at Grinzing - so you just get off and are immediately...More

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 were looking for a nice neighborhood restaurant/cafe and this was the recommendation we got from our hotel. We got there a little late and the courtyard was full so we had to eat inside. My wife and I both ordered the meat platter. It...More

Total tourist trap! Service was OK but the food was just awful! There are so many better places around Vienna!

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 –
