Wake up bar is located close to Donaubrücke U2 station (there are a lot of information signs, so you will not miss it). We went there on a hot Sunday lunch time and we could find free tables, but if you go there in the evening, I recommend making a reservation. The service is nothing special, they are quite fast...

Great, informal, sporty ambience, nice and tasty dishes, friendly stuff. I can sit and eat also on the sand, very close to the water. We enjoyed it with my girlfriend a lot!

Great restaurant right at the edge of the Danube. Not a tourist spot, but lovely to enjoy a meal and watch the wakeboarders' skills on the river. Food is good (not great) but the setting is great and interesting. Tables are in high demand at dinner-time, so it is worthwhile getting there early.

This is one of the best restaurant Danube along. We had grilled calamary and some pita chicken and it was delicious. Great light food for hot days. You can watch wakeboarders on the wake lift in front of the restaurant on Danube and their awesome jumps. Waitress was friendly and we enjoyed our lunch in this place.

If you are looking for relax and beach experience. Wake up is the magic place for you. Different experience on beautiful Danubio.you can rend a boad and make a WAKEBOARD and after have a lunch taking sun on the fantastic restaurant on the Danubio. No one tourist in this place only local people. Alternative route in Vienna

The surliest staff in Vienna - I hope! My God. The setting is perfect, the ambiance is perfect, if only the employees had any sense of customer service. The training mantra for all the staff just needs to be "WAKE UP" cos all they do is ignore you and if you insist on their attention, they point to someone else... More

Restaurant on the Danube which is a short (5 minutes or less) walk from the ubahn station donasustadtbrucke (U2 line). Nice setting with tables right on the Danube where there is a wake boarding line- super fun to watch. Good food and drinks at moderate prices. Great casual vibe.

Visited this place occasionally. It was very hot ... eat near the water was perfect. Service was great and friendly. Food also good. Try grilled calamity and fish, accompanied by fresh salad. ... and to wash it down with Grüner Veltliner (local white wine) :) We took a seat at the open terrace, with a view of water skiers. Nice...

We happened across this place by seeing it when crossing the UBahn bridge by Donaustadtbrucke station (U2 LINE). It's a great place to have a drink and lunch overlooking the Danube. We had a lovely meal of hummus and tzatziki and pitta bread. With a lovely beer in the sun it was a perfect snack lunch. Comfortable seating, a great... More
