The food was delicious but the service wasn't very nice. Hard to get the attention and when they bother to listen, you get a short unpleasant answer.

When I go to a restaurant that is more expensive than the average I have higher expectations. This restaurant meets them all. The environment and the service are fantastic and the food delicious for the eye and the mouth.

Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries,
arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde
shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with
cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make
for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and
art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at
Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a
perfect hangout on a warm summer evening.
