Nice light lunch, on a quiet terrace in Vienna - Edit

Sad to read this place has now turned into a non-veg restaurant.

We were at BioBar in 2016 and had a nice lunch on the terrace.
The interior looked a bit outdated, but the food was nice. Simple, but fresh and light. And cheap.

And a perfect location to get away from touristy Vienna (although still in the historic center).

no longer Bio Bar - Edit

We visited this place on Aug 24, 2017 and found out that this restaurant is now under a new ownership and is now called Palato. Palato serves meat with vegetarian and vegan options available. Upon learning that Bio Bar does not exist, we decided to stay and try out Palato. We had the Vegan pepper steak and Palato basmati risotto. The food was pretty good. The server was friendly and helpful. Give this place a try if you are in the area.

Fantastic Austrian kitchen - Edit

They serve amazing meat-like dishes. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Because there is no car traffic near the restaurant, it is quiet though.

Pros: delicious food, nice people, lunch menu

Traditional Viennese Style Food - Edit

This is an updated review - the first one was 10 years ago when this restaurant was a bit of a 'lifesaver' in Vienna and I gave it five stars. SInce then, Vienna has moved on in terms of provision for vegans, and it felt as though Bio Bar was unchanged. Compared to the places we visited this time, the food here is plain and traditional. If you want vegan Wiener Schnitzel then this is the place to come.

Pros: Viennese style food - vegan

Austrian dishes for vegetarians and vegans ! - Edit

This place is just great !
The guy does not really speak English but is really helpful and nice.
We had the vegan schnitzel and the vegan goulash. I had to ask what it was made of as it was looking so much like meat that I couldn't have it ... he said it was tofu and no meat at all.
This is perfect for vegans and vegetarians who would like to try Austrian dishes !

Pros: nice place, quick service, not pricy

Best in town - Edit

fantastic vegetarian food. I was there about 30 times. After Makro one (which is makrobiotic and vegan), for me the best in town. Best upscale vegan friendly is Lebenbauer. Try it all!

Pros: very tasty!, small scale fresh cooking, friendly

Cons: small place

Delicious organic food - Edit

I went there twice while staying in Vienna, the second time around I brought an omni friend. I got the Spaghetti and Risotto and both were excellent. The staff is super friendly and sitting outside was beautiful on a nice, warm summer evening. I highly recommend this place!

Pros: organic, whole foods

Cons: medium size portions

Good service, but average food - Edit

The wait person was very nice and helpful. I had the vegan schnitzel with a side salad, and a rustica bread appetizer. I really wanted to like the food. Unfortunately, it was just average. I really can't recommend the place.

Good solid lunch choice - Edit

We ate at this place while visiting the historic sites in the city centre. It was a good choice for lunch: lots of options on the Price Fixe menu, and lots of a la carte choice, too. In the end we both went for a salad - Greek salad for me, the salad with Seitan for my friend. The salad was very good - very fresh ingredients, and absolutely huge, and the prices weren't bad either (not a bad thing, given what an expensive city Vienna can be!)

There were lots of smoothies on the menu too and if we'd discovered this place earlier on in our trip, we probably would have gone there every day as our choice for lunch.

Pros: Fresh ingredients, Affordable , Lots of choice

Cons: Not fancy

a good option while visiting the city centre - Edit

I had lunch at Bio Bar von Antun after visiting the Hofburg since it is 5 minutes away from there. The location is perfect and it is very nice to sit outdoor. However, the food is okay, but nothing special. We tried the Tiroler Erdäpfel G’röst, which is basically roasted potatoes with bell peppers and smoked tofu, and the goulash, which is okay but not the best that I had. I think that there are better places in Vienna if you look for great vegan food, but nonetheless it is a good place if you are visiting the city centre and you don't want to waste too much time looking for a place to eat.

Updated from previous review on 2016-07-25

Pros: location, portions are okay

Cons: only one waitress

Bio Bar Review - Edit

Food was good. It is always nice to experience the vegan version of the local cuisine. Service was friendly and prices are reasonable. Would recommend.

Outstanding vegan-ized traditional food - Edit

We had vegan schnitzel and steak and it was unbelievably good. It's the kind of vegan meal that makes you feel warm and cozy inside and also let's get a sense of authentic Austrian food (but without the meat.) Go right now.

Pros: Authentic-style food, Comfort food

Best Vegetarian Food in Vienna - Edit

Oh Bio Bar! I'm so pleased you're my inaugural review! My fiancé and I specifically übered here after an exhaustive search of veggie Austrian food that wasn't just schnitzel/burgers. True, there are other options, but truly this should be your first stop. We were greeted warmly, even with our embarrassing German, and were set immediately at ease by both the servers (enormous apologies for forgetting their names, the lovely woman was from Slovenia and the gentleman may have also been but was Indian...they are magic and I really am embarrassed ). They went over the menu items meticulously, he explained that they had to go out and forage this time of year only for this incredibly unique garlic leaf that defies logic. We enjoyed the spring soup (very good), the "Cici" (good!) and the Zwiebelrostbraten with apple and horseradish slaw (Amazing!). AND THEN at the end of our meal, he gave us some leafy garlic to take home. Love them, love the food, love Bio Bar!

Pros: Fantastic Staff, Authentic Cuisine, Great Music

Nice food in good atmosphere - Edit

Bio Bar von Antun is a small restaurant in the center of Vienna. They have a variety of vegan foods, including Wiener Schnitzel. The food we had was delicious and enough to get full. The atmosphere is nice and the staff is friendly. The food is quite pricey unfortunately, but it is all organic and overall good quality.

Pricy, but tasty food - Edit

We went there yesterday and tried their lunch menues. The menue was quite creative, they offer some croatian specialitys for Vegans, but unfortunately the portions are really small compared to the high price. They use seasonal and local vegetables, which I really appreciate.
We can't judge the speed of the service, since we were the only customers, so we got our order pretty fast and the waitress was very nice and polite.
They only have a small choice of desserts and only half of it is vegan.
All in all it is a nice little restaurant, but nothing special.

Pros: Tasty food, Clear labels, Creative menu with local products

Cons: Small portions, Expensive, Little choice of desserts

Quiet and cosy - Edit

I had dinner at the Bio Bar Von Antun yesterday. It took me a while to find it simply because I lost the city map, but that's another story... :--)

The woman at the counter was very nice, the menu is both in German and in English, and I had the following: Bruschetta Rusticana (vegan), which was nice and served on an old wooden cutting board (very "rustico", if you speak Italian!). Then I had rice with mushrooms and tofu (which was smoked, and really tasty), and I drank a pear juice.

20.30EUR, which seems ok to me, the food was good and portions generous. I would go back there, but I leave Vienna tomorrow and tonight I'm trying a different veg place!

Pros: Cosy atmosphere, Good food, Big portions

Really Nice and Cozy Vegetarian Restaurant in the heart of Vienna - Edit

This restaurant was fantastic and the food was superb. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the staff (the nice lady) was really helpful. They should definitely hire more staff specially at lunch time.
We got the set menu which included the soup, deep fried pumpkin with polenta and also a salad with stripped seitan.
The menu had lots of vegan options.

Pros: In the centre of Vienna, Friendly Staff, Food was really good

More like ashram food - Edit

We had lunch here after just having come across it by chancet the previous day.
I would always want to support vegetarian restaurants as I appreciate people making healthy food available but I am sorry to say that in my opinion, this is falling way behind.
It was more like ashram food from years ago.
We choose the set menu of soup, main & salad for €11.90 each.
The soup was ok, the main meal was puréed chickpeas, some tofu and cous cous. Very bland. The small salad was mostly lettuce and red onion.
This kind of meal is very cheap to produce so I hope it gives the owners a good living.
The woman who served us was nice but very nervous and chaotic.
It seemed like the male owner was angry with her by the way he talked constantly to her and she was getting more and more flustered.
But as we couldn't understand his words, we may be wrong about this.

Pros: Quiet

Cons: Bland food, Not great value for money, Tension in the air

Great pepper steak, bravo bruschetta - Edit

Start your meal with the bruschetta, a creative take on the antipasto from Italy. Bread is topped with tomato, slivers of smoked tofu, garlic and spices, and served with a small green salad. I loved it!

The pepper steaks, with red wine gravy, plated with a pretty presentation of potatoes was a memorable menu item. Delicious.

Food was served by a sweet woman with a sweet voice who spoke English very well.

Ok food - Edit

We had the Zwiebel-Rostbraten and the Pepper-Steak and it was both ok but not extraordinary. I would go back there if there weren't better options in Vienna. The server was really friendly and the food is freshly prepared so it's a good place but unfortunately not really my taste. If you like low salt and under spiced food though, this could be a good choice for you!

Plenty of choices, but choose wisely. - Edit

The menu has a fantastically extensive choice for the vegan and vegetarian, comprised of a specials menu (a set of soup, salad and main), a lunch menu or a separate dinner menu. The waitress was adorable, kindly speaking in English for us and translating the specials board. My partner chose a faux meat Croatian meal which came with a scrumptious side serve of potatoes and a salad, and I opted for an 'exotic fruit and vegetable curry'. It was here I made a mistake. The first bite was like a taste explosion, full of lemon zest, coconut, kiwi fruit, broccoli and mango. However, second bite and the same intensity remained making the curry a difficult meal to finish. I should have chosen a simpler meal or queried more about my choice. Portion sizes weren't overly large and didn't quite represent the costs, and we probably wouldn't return. But some other reviewers really enjoyed the atmosphere and food, and it's each to their own!

Pros: Gluten-free options for you celiacs, large choice of meals, lovely waitress

Cons: Slightly pricey

Excellent! - Edit

We arrived late on a Friday night
The waitress was lovely and asked whether we'd prefer English or Deutsch.
Friend got the schnitzel and I got the seitan cutlets which were absolutely amazing. Coated in a red wine sauce and with mashed potato. Not yr typical vegan meal!

Pros: Service , Seitan Cutlets

Good food, cozy place - Edit

I went there with my omnivore Dad and both of us enjoyed the meal very much. They offer a range of vegetarian and vegan versions of international as well as traditional Austrian meals, including vegan desserts. The atmosphere is welcoming and cozy, the staff are friendly and well-informed about the items on their menu. I recommend!

Pros: wide range, friendly, cozy

Decent and Centrally Located - Edit

Bio Bar wasn't on my list originally, but it was close to the hotel so after a long day it was the most convenient choice. The menu is in English and is all veggie with lots of vegan options. Killer juices. The meal was good, large portions. It wasn't overly special, but it was certainly a fine meal. They have a lot of info for local animal welfare/rights events which is cool.
