I ordered some vegetarian dishes there and I think they are really good. Very few places were you can try authentic austrian vegetarian food and this is one of those.

Part of a cinecomplex by the look and feel of it. They squeezed me in as a lone diner for some very nice healthy and inexpensive food. Eclectic menu so hard to pigeonhole the genre. Really friendly and cool waitress who knew what she was selling. In a word, cool.

I enjoyed Krokodil it was great value and good quality. It is quite hard to find from the address tucked away under rather than on the road and initial impressions were underwhelming as we were ignored by the first couple of staff who passed us.

I guess it is all about managing expectations... If you are looking for an inexpensive quick meal in a student environment - you will not be disappointed. / Simple and functional design, clean, fast. - But, certainly not what I expect among the top ten of Austria's 4th (5th?) biggest city.

Relaxed contemporary restaurant with good food and wine at very reasonable price. Excellent host who made us feel welcome. Popular so worth booking. If you arrive in the dark you could miss it. Walk through the square with the wooden art structure and it's just down some steps
