this is the most happening place between neubaugasse metro stop and the westbahnhof. some open air and lots of inside space. i had good attention for getting a beer and had a decent pizza. Tis smoky, repetitive music et al, but it is the place where the youngish crowd pours in to and is the liveliest spot on this part... More

When my friend arrived about 30 minutes after we did, we asked if we could go outside.The waitress didn't even respond to me, she just tutted and walked off. The... More

There are many varieties if you want to eat an omelette. They also have delicious cheese. Ordering a breakfast box (includes jam, boiled egg, ... etc.) and cheese would be enough for per one person. Service is fast. Staff is nice.

We enjoyed Freiraum so much we went twice - and my husband had the Thai Red Curry both times! I had the chicken teryaki, and then a steak sandwich the second time.

We came for a quick lunch and everything was perfect.. Until we started eating the cold chicken tikka pitta. Eating cold chicken is a no go.

Staying in Mariahilf

Neighbourhood Profile
Mariahilf
Vienna’s sixth district hosts high street shopping heaven and pedestrian area Mariahilfer Strasse. The weirdest local building is probably the city aquarium Haus des Meeres, housed in one of Vienna’s six remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna and the centre. One of the most historic sites in the area is the passageway of 18th century Raimundhof with its small shops and cafés. It leads from Mariahilfer Strasse to Windmühlgasse. For a glimpse into the world of early 19th century theater, visit Semperdepot, the former depository for theatre decoration, which now hosts art exhibitions and fairs.
