We didn't actually stay here as we were put off by the smokey atmosphere. The bar looked nice and the view seemed ok in the dark but after experiencing smoke free bars in the UK for the last few years we couldn't bring ourselves to stay and end up stinking of smoke later.
The restaurant on the other side is smoke free and there were was a bar area in there but the tables for the bar were all next to a wall with no view at all.
It's a shame Vienna hasn't yet caught up and banned smoking in its bars.

“Terrible service, ok food, great view”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2013 via mobile

Our small group of 4 went there for a late Sunday breakfast to the restaurant on the 7th floor of the Steffl department store. We ordered some eggs, strudel. At one point of time we spilled a coffee all over the table and called the waiter to clean up.. None of the two waiters cared (Gunther) so we moved to another table, after first folding the table cloth to prevent the dripping of the coffee on the floor. We stayed for another hour or so, received what we ordered - never got though the butter and jam that we ordered. The mess stayed on our neighboring table long after we left, while new people were still being seated .. Such a careless and obnoxious attitude... The view from the lounge is fabulous (in the smoker section) so it is worth a visit just for the view ... The food and service please get somewhere else. I was there earlier, about 7 years ago for a business dinner and that time just everything was A+ - so such a drop in service was a total disappointment and a major embarrassment for Vienna.

“Good for a cocktail ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013 via mobile

We went late Wednesday night for a cocktail. It was worth a visit and experience. Gives a different view from a beer Keller

“Nice restaurant, very poor views.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

I usually associate bars/restaurants a certain number of floors up with a good view - all you can see from here is air conditioning units!
The food here though was the saving grace, we all had beef which was very tender and nicely presented. The staff were helpful but the lighting was a little too low - we almost couldn't see what we were eating.
