My husband and I stumbled upon sparkys and popped in for lunch. There is lots to choose from, the prices are cheap, portions large but the food isn't amazing. The place is a little grubby, but service was friendly and prompt. A good place for a cheap eat!

Very good ambience and tasty food. Typical German/Viennese.....not posh but exactly what we were looking for I. Terms of traditional. Non-smoking section at back

Place is lively, nicely decorated for bar grill, food okay service was just okay close to average. Our dinner was average. I would not return just because of the poor service

. . . and dropped out quite quickly afterwards. While this might be a lively and exciting meeting and eating place I found it quite grubby and tired in terms of its décor and the service is somewhat indifferent with the boss (?) addressing his staff in a rather aggressive and unpleasant manner. Could not recommend this place.

Our first night in Vienna and we had a good meal here at this restaurant next to St. Peter's. It was a nice spot and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the people going by. Our waiter was grumpy and bossy but we didn't let him spoil our evening.

We visited this restaurant whilst in the Stephanplatz for dinner. Customers are allowed to smoke in here so good for people who smoke, not a smoker anymore but it doesn't bother me. We were seated in an area where nobody was smoking so that was good for our sons. The service was very good and they were very friendly. The... More

Great food. Great hosts ! We found this by pure chance. The salad bar was a little plain, but the food and gluwein was wonderful!

Searching for somewhere that wouldn't cost an arm and a leg we discovered this place. Reasonable in price, decent service, food (and that's the important thing) really good. Well worth a visit for a decent plate of ribs.

We were not impressed with the decor, which can best be described as eclectic, but we needed somewhere for a quick lunch and there was surprisingly little choice in the middle of town. We were then pleasantly surprised by the quality (and quantity) of the food; my partner in particular said that his choice was very tasty - actually flavoured... More

After a great Vienna Symphony concert, we looked for a nice romantic Viennese restaurant for a late dinner. Really tough to find in the center of the city. Most places welcomed us for drinks, but said that their kitchens were closed - at 10:30 pm ! Eventually we were directed to Sparky's, a rather funky American-style diner, which stayed open... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
