I have to say I was surprised with this place! From the outside nothing shows you that inside is such a nice place for a coffee! If we didn't go there with our friend I doubt it we would ever came here. Anyway... 1) biggest disadvantage is that you have to cross the smoking area to get to the non... More

Usual minimalistic design. Offerings obviously in high demand. Bar staff on the ignorant side of attention. Restaurant staff competent. Bit overwhelmed by workload. Ample choice of foods and drinks. Large, tasty portions. Adequately priced.

Ideal to hang out in Vienna for a number of the reasons mentioned. Pizza is 5*. Thai food is 4* (some flavors missing). Salmon 5* . No dark beer :-( But overall, the experience is 5*

Large place with different services: restaurant, bar... spent New Year's Eve with the special menu. The service was good and the food too. A bit too experimental for my taste, somewhat small portions, but definitely good food. Worth a visit

A cosy cafe at the heart of Vienna's city Centre, with a large variety on the menu and selection of coffees.

Been there several times before, but yesterdays visit was the last one for me. Waitress serving us was very rude, unfriendly and impolite. We just asked to change tea because water in a pot was cold, when she brought it. After complaining that it was here for 15 minutes (actually not more than 5) she brought us pots back with... More

The food was good but the restaurant itself is too big, a huge dining hall like in a canteen. Hence, it was also very noisy. Stylish but not that comfortable as expected.

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.

Staying in Mariahilf

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
