The food was very delicious but unfortunately the service wasn't really good and we had to wait for the food a pretty long time.

Went here on the recommendation of a local, otherwise you would never find the place. The entrance is a plain steel door on a quiet street. Amazing decor, service and food. The bar is particularly cool too. This is a must visit in Vienna, best decor in a restaurant I've ever seen.

Entering the restaurant through a heavy metal door, once inside another world appears to you. Green dark, art nouveau, stylish ... The service was outstanding, professional and friendly at the same time. The food above average. We for sure will come again

Brilliant after theatre dinner option. Fantastic - professional service and great food. Beef tagliata and vegetable curry both delicious. Nice relaxed atmosphere, dark and cosy but not so dark you couldn't read the menu. Cannot recommend enough.

The four of us had different dishes and all liked it very much. Try the beef tartar or the fillet of beef, the creamy cold cucumber soup or the cheee dumplings. delicious. The atmosphere reminded me of places at Palermo Hollywood Buenos Aires. it's on the dark side and very stylish. Service was impeccable.

Not just a mainstream cocktail selection but own creations. Very entertaining and unique interior.The food was fresh and well presented. Rather small portions though,in regard of the price... More

Staying in Margareten

Neighbourhood Profile
Margareten
This former working class district blends hip eateries and avant-garde cinema with a time travel into 1950s Vienna. Feel the district’s pulse at Margaretenhof and Schlossquadrat. 19th-century Margaretenhof is a local icon, yet has very non-Viennese architecture with its brick structure and cast-iron verandas. The nearby urban Renaissance castle of Schlossquadrat houses several restaurants. In the summer you can sit in its romantic shady courtyard over Schnitzel and Kracherl (traditional fizzy syrup). Siebenbrunnenplatz and its surrounding shops and grocery stores have remained virtually unchanged in the past 60 years: taking a walk there is like stepping into a 1950s film set. Speaking of movies, head to avant-garde cinema Filmcasino in the evening. It often stages foreign language cult films.
