I don't really know. It's not bad, but it's not the food explosion of the city. It's where the cool Viennese kids go to. After all cool stuff, nice food, great atmosphere. I would go here again, and I went again and again. But it's not included with the best restaurants in Vienna. At least not for me. It's just... More

We decided to have a spontaneous walk in dinner here, and we were lucky to find a table (even though we came in well past normal European dinner hours). The place seems pretty popular, also on weekdays. As such reserving a table is recommended. The service was really good, as was the food. We really enjoyed our stay here. Also... More

This bar and restaurant is located in a great location along the Donaukanal (Danube Canal). It's a cool place to spend a romantic evening, and is a nice alternative if you can't get onto the Sofitel tower when it's crowded.

We have been visiting Vienna last weekend and one of our destinations was this cute and lovely place on Donau. We got the table very hard because people do reservations but on our lucky, somebody just didn't showed up:) I little bit pricey but worth for the enjoy you get there. Service was 10/10

Went here for a late dinner. It's a bustling place with large windows that overlook the riverbank. Service was slow (even for Vienna). Had a smoked trout appetizer that was fairly good. One dish (lamb) was good although a bit expensive. The other meat dish had a very bland flavor profile, accompanied by a large selection of bland root vegetables.... More

On our 3-day getaway in Vienna, we've chose to come twice at Motto am Fluss, and that says something! The menu selection is just amazing, I went for the pancakes which were topped with an amazing orange flavored cream and the avocado and cottage cheese bread, that was really yummy, also I really enjoyed the green detox smoothie. The vibe... More

The food here was delicious and the service was excellent. Highly recommend checking out their specials board as the braised beef cheek I had was superb. Book in advance and make sure you visit.

This is a great location, up above the Donau Canal in Vienna. Below it is the embarkation point for the Blue Danube boat tour and the Twin City Liner to Bratislava. You can sit outside on the deck, or indoors. The food and coffee are good, and it's clearly popular with locals and visitors alike (lots of tables get reserved... More
