High above Vienna

Posted on 04 / 11 / 2015

The first thing that needs to be mentioned about this restaurant is the unique location. It is situated at the top of the city library, it offers a great view of the surrounding city. They have a very variable and diverse menu, so you won't get bored after eating there multiple times. The restaurant itself is more of a bistro, not too high end, but still a respectable establishment. They even offer a vegan breakfast, the service was friendly, and the food was good. Recomendable for tourists!

Pros: Amazing location., Vegan breakfast., Good food.
Cons: Not the greatest selection for vegans.

One of my fav places in Vienna

Such a place never disappoint. Location is fantastic, Oben - which means 'above' - is a rooftop restaurant on the upper floor of the public library. Not merely vegan, professionally they offer a well balanced menu with vegan choices. All is good and well prepared, great cuisine. Simple and friendly service.
