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. Once we got over that service was friendly although our waitress spoke little English and... More

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

It was a Monday evening. My colleagues and I decided to come here for dinner, mainly because of the high ranking , also because of its proximity to our hotel. The cafe tucked away from the road so we had a little difficulty of finding it. The cafe was busy, but the waitress found us a table anyway. There are... More

The waitress speaks English well,and she has a beautiful smell.though there is no English menu,every dish she order for us is delicious.we love this restaurant:) There is vegetarian food. Dessert is cool and nice~ 美麗的女服務生說得英文很好,她總是面帶微笑很親切。雖然沒有英文菜單,但是她幫忙我們點的推薦菜單都十分美味。我們五個好朋友都愛這間餐廳:) 這裡有提供素食。 甜點很酷也好吃~
