“Good cafe”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

This cafe has a great setting, right in the opera house. The cardinal torte was gorgeous and the waiter was helpful in explaining the different cakes. We felt it was reasonable value in comparison to the (many) other cake and coffee stops we had in Vienna.

“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.
