Emphasis is on seafood, but we went for the grilled chicken and the meatballs and rice. The food was simple, fresh and delicious. Avoid the desserts!

We hadn’t booked and were lucky to be seated. Lots of fish but also some nice simple meat dishes. Reasonably priced and simple tasty food, nice atmosphere if a little run down.

A pleasant restaurant with a classic Spanish menu, and friendly staff. The portions are hearty and tasty and reasonably priced. It's on a quiet street and takes a bit of locating, but is worth visiting if you're in the area.

Quality of food was good, service was fine but paying more than $80.00 for a dinner for two was a little over of what we expected.

The restaurant serves spanish food and has fantastic high-quality seafood. The speciality of the house, the pulpo, was very nice. We had a great evening in this mediocre priced restaurant.

Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly
turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to
legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at
Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque
façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for
a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse,
Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and
Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories
