“Pleasant atmosphere, good service, bit crowded”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Sat on a Monday late afternoon with a couple of friends. Lots of tourists, the place was packed, but admittedly the scenery is very monumental (close to the Hofburg and some museums, nice park). The waiters do not fluff about, service was v good. It was not the most comfortable seating with loads of tables squeezed in a rather small area but of you are there for the view I am sure it is absolutely fine. Standard prices for drinks, didn't accept Bankomat/ATM (credit card or cash only apparently).

“Lovely building, good vibe”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

We ate here a couple of times on our trip and liked it a lot. Good service and tasty food. Fun to sit out on the terrace and people-watch on a sunny evening.

“Location, location, location”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

We stopped in for drinks on the patio on a beautiful Vienna afternoon. Fabulous location and good service. I don't think I would have minded just having to sit here all afternoon.

“Great location with very bad service”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

It's was our 3rd time having lunch at Palmenhaus but still we were very disappointed by the bad service. The waiter was talking loud to friend of him that joined the terrace with a dog, while serving at our table. Also during our lunch the person's dog was making a lot of noise and it seems that no one was bothered since he was "one of the house"(probably some employee in his free time).
It is a pity that these things happen in such a nice location but still they make us not to come back again or recommend it.
