“Ate here everyday for a week”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Just arrived back from Vienna, stayed at the lovely Bristol Hotel, made even better by having the Café Oper Wien right across the road from our room. The hotel breakfasts were very expensive so we had breakfast every day (and sometimes 3 meals in 1 day!!) at the Café Oper Wien.
The staff were great and chatty, very efficient and the meals were excellent. Breakfast was wonderful, sitting outside in balmy weather watching the world go by (very slowly).
The meals were very much café rather than full restaurant but that doesn't diminish their quality. They serve all of the usual Viennese fare (Goulash soup, strudel, Sacher cake, EXCELLENT coffee and the Early Grey tea (German Earl Grey !!) is especially good.
Vienna was a wonderful city, the Hotel was excellent BUT the Café Oper Wien was the highlight of the holiday!
Bizarrely they would be my main reason for returning to Vienna.

“Coffee Stop”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

While walking around Vienna spotted the café at the Opera House and decided to try our first melange coffee. The weather was pleasant and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the wonderful location. The service was quick and friendly and price was reasonable for a good coffee in an excellent location.

“Poor service ”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

The weather, location and chocolate with cream we tried could be the best allies for a great review however the service was so poor that it ruined the whole thing

“Chilling on a winter saturday noon/afternoon in Vienna”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

Excellent atmosphere in an amazing location, and this in beautiful Vienna. Menu of the day is really good value for money and the menu choice has a bit of Belgian-Namurois influence, as the Host/Maitre d'hôtel is Belgian. For my birthday, all our 80 guests were impressed with the service and the food and drinks. In addition to the excellent cakes, the "Leberkaese" snacks went away like hot cakes. Especially our international guests like them more than anything.
And the live music performance of an Opera Bariton, just made it an unforgettable experience for me and all my/our birthday guests.

“Nice Place bad Service”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

We spent our holidays in Vienna last week. On wendsday,19.02. night we were happy to see the perfomance at the Vienna Opera. It was a wonderfull evenig, the performance was Great and the service at your restaurant we enjoyed before and after the visit of the opera was amazing. Next Day we decided to end our nice trip with a breakfast in this cafe. We were concerned about the situation, because there was just the barman working, perhaps the waiter was late, but he handled it well. At the end we wanted to pay but the waiter was still missing. We went to the desk and saw a waiter playing with his phone and smoking a cigarette near the kitchen. His behaviour was very rude and he said the tip wasn't included in the Bill!!! Maybe we were Not so grnerous but he didn't work at all nor wait on us!!! At least our visit to the Vienna Opera was a Great experience but the service of it's restaurant seems to be improovable.

Dear Mariska68,

we are very sorry for that incident. We are alway hard working to improve our service, so it is a real shame to hear from such a disagreeable occurrence. We would be very grateful if you could contact us, so we can solve the situation. We would like to make up for that incident the next time you come to Vienna and visit us.

Once again, we are very sorry and we still hope to welcome you the next time as our guest.

Sincerly,
