Overwhelmed service personal meant that we waited 20 minutes to order a coffee and never got the water we asked for. I dont think the personal were at fault, just under staffed. On a previous visit we left after not being served. As a local resident i suggest another place that relies on providing a better experience rather than rely... More

Have never eaten here but often frequent the bar. One of best cocktails in Vienna - excellent bar staff that mix great drinks. Service can be a bit slow on the weekends.

My girlfriend and I went there for a brunch. The location right over the river is great. I can imagine in summer how nice the terrace can be. We had a sandwich with fresh juice and a plate with egg. Nice staff and music.

This place isn't just about food (don't take me wrong - the food was amazing) but also about the ambient. The restaurant is well located and the interior is so nice I could stay there for hours having a few beers. The price is a little higher than average but totally worth it.

The location ist extraordinarily located on top of the terminal for ships leaving for Bratislava on the Danube canal. I had brunch and it was not just due to the fact that I was hungry, but the steak sandwich I tried was exeptional. Roasted baguette with a layer of caramelized onions, tender roasted pink slices of beef with avocado, cheese... More

I went only for a coffee in the afternoon. I ate a slice of strudel but it was a bit cold and I did'nt like it very much. But the place is very nice with the river below and the candles. I knew that all is organic food and they used also fair trade product. Very charming.

A good place to go to for lunch. They serve all biologic, and you do taste it. Especially their bread is very good. We had an avocado, hüttekäse and radish sandwich, and a club sandwich. My wife was very happy with her snack, I enjoyed especially the fried potatoes with the club. Excellent place to go to.

Thank GertjanLind

This quarter is packed with stories and legends that will enrich your Vienna experience.
