Slowest service ever

Arrived at the bar looking forward to the views, we never went past the door. The doorman requested our coats were put in the cloakroom at €2 euros each, we refused saying we will keep our coats with us, he wouldn't let us go any further. We asked why and he said there the rules. We turned tale with him... More

Oh dear, this should be a great bar! The view is good, the service friendly but very slow and the cocktails are poor. I had a portnstar martini that tasted synthetic and cheap. All in all, disappointing and a missed opportunity!

Interesting that our experience seems to contradict a lot of the reviews placed previously. We visited for lunch during our stay and firstly did not have to place our coats in the cloakroom. The restaurant is stylish and contemporary and the staff were very friendly, spoke good English offering us seats with lovely views of the cathedral and Vienna skyline... More

I only wish I had checked out the TripAdvisor reviews before deciding to grab a drink here with friends. Upon arrival, you are asked to check your coats (2 euros each) and then told to go to the bar to the left. Our group are all non-smokers but the only non-smoking section is the restaurant/bar on the right. It took... More

Well people this seems to be a common theme for this restaurant....long waits, poor service, mediocre food. We were there for my birthday dinner, we were handed a menu , but then waitedmore than 20 minutes before we were even offered water. My husband ordered steak, which came beyond cold and very over done, but the vedgeis were hot, go... More

I went for Lunch on Christmas Eve, I hadn't eaten all morning so I thought I would order something fast... Surf and Turf burger. My white wine was hit by the time the food arrived and that only happened because I asked where it was. Now the burger was delicious as was the apple strudel with vanilla cream sauce. But... More

Went for Christmas lunch and given concerns re options, we booked in advance. Got a good view of st Stephens. Irritated that they highlighted they charge for bread and butter separately, never a good sign. Wine recommended was good but the pasta dishes were bland n the quality of the food was just poor. Having to wait an hour for... More

Good service should be a given in any establishment irrespective of their prices but when you start charging an average of €10 for a drink you really need to get the basics of politeness and good manners. For some reason they think that they are above that here. From the arrival where we were made €2 for each coat, with... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
