Bad - Edit

Why are they on the vegan listing and have a poster about dairy facts when they serve cows milk?
Rude staff, the food was tasteless and the coffee is the worst coffee I've ever had.

rude staff, bad food and not even vegan - Edit

Me and my friend came here to relax and we're instead confronted by rude staff who laughed in our face after giving us coffee with milk when we are vegan and told them before hand we don't confuse animal products! They tried to make us pay but we refused and the staff got very rude with us and we felt very uncomfortable. This place should not be listed as 'vegan' it is terrible.

Pros: seating area is nice

Cons: rude staff, dairy products , froth game weak

A Wonderful Experience - Edit

We had a great dining experience at this very warm and friendly little restaurant.. Moni (owner) made us feel very welcome, it felt like going to a friend's house to have dinner.. The food was very good.. The restaurant was a little hard to find, but once there in the little courtyard, it was quite sweet and magical (light in evening/night..).
Thank you Moni for a welcoming experinence, nice to connect with like-minded people so soon after arriving in Austria - making us feel at home :)
Much Love from Canada :) XO

Pros: Friendly, Good food, Good ambience

Cons: Hard to find, They had run out of raw green salad

Good food and excellent location - Edit

Stopped here for lunch and found out that the bistro serves one plate with a few different items on it with the option of soup. It was good food and the location was cozy and quiet in an outside courtyard. Lunch is not served until 11:30am and they take cash only.

Pros: Wholesome food, Quick service, Nice location

Cons: Cash only, Serves food starting at 11:30am

nice and cosy place - Edit

I really love the Makro1 in Vienna, as it has a nice outdoor area and is somewhat of a hidden gem in the old city of Vienna. It is a very quiet place and the chef seems to be always very happy and friendly. The food is creatively prepared and very delicious. I would definitely recommend going there

Pros: cosy place, friendly staff, wonderful cakes

Delicious and unique experience - Edit

I ate many times at Makro1 and it has always been delicious! The food is creative and colourful, each meal is freshly cooked right in front your eyes, it´s also inspiring for me to what to cook at home. The staff is friendly and welcoming, the garden outside is very nice and special. I also like that the food is organic only and local and that they show political interests with "stop animal testing"- and Amnesty International stickers or presenting petitions for environmental causes in their shop. Sometimes it´s not easy to get a free spot but the short waiting time is definitly worth it! Especially the delicious desserts are worth it ;)

Pros: delicious, organic and fresh, fantastic desserts

Cons: can be crowded sometimes

Delicious macro vegan meal - Edit

Delicious macrobiotic restaurant with a very good lunch menu. I had the soup and macro plate and they were very tasty and definitely healthy. The vegan dessert was also outstanding. I also enjoyed the setting. The little plaza where this restaurant is located is very relaxing.

Good lunch in the centre of Vienna - Edit

Makro 1 has a really lovely and quiet outdoor seating area in the centre of Vienna. It's only about 5 min away from Stephansplatz. They offer a variety of organic juices - I especially love the HasenFit ones. For lunch you can always get a soup and/or the main dish. The last time I ate there I had rice, lentils and 3 different salads (beetroot, green salad and cabbage). It all tasted good! I really enjoy more simple meals like that. The prices are also ok considering you are in the city centre.

Pros: nice outdoor seating, in the city centre, yum food and large portions

Communal Dining - Edit

Hard to find and a bit expensive but it is a veggie place in the centre of Vienna so it's not surprising. The daily dish was tasty, staff were great and I liked the idea of strangers all dining around 1 big table. Feels like a big family kitchen,

Pros: Communal dining, Nice staff

Cons: Hard to find, Expensive

Makro 1 - Edit

The place is tiny and not so easy to find (hidden in a court off the street). It is mainly an organic shop with one big table where you can sit. The staff was friendly, but I was not so impressed by the menu. All is vegan, but there was only one dish (which was made fresh on front of your eyes, so that is a plus) and two dessert options - one freshly made cake and a tiramisu. But all in all it was a bit too alternative even for me. Also quite expensive.

Quaint, cosy and surprisingly different. - Edit

Makro 1 was a very different and heartwarming experience for my partner and I. We were the first people to arrive in the welcoming restaurant and found there was just the one long table to sit at. The kitchen space was in clear view to all, with three lovely ladies preparing and cooking their magic. There is one set menu on offer per day, which the ladies of the house accommodated to a gluten-free option. As we received our meals (which was the best miso pumpkin I have ever consumed), another lady had entered, as well as another couple, casually joining us around the one long table. Soon enough, the table was full and we felt as though we had sat down for a Christmas dinner with a large, vegan family. We left Makro 1 feeling humbled and fortunate to be in a world surrounded by such lovely people.

Pros: Delicious food, just like Grandmas cooking , inviting area.

Cons: Slightly expensive, but filling.

Fantastic Fixed Menu Vegan Lunch Spot - Edit

This place is an absolute gem. They offer a daily vegan menu for lunch that can be ordered with or without soup. Desserts also available. The ladies here are lovely and the communal table is a great way to chat if you want to or you can just eat and go. There is outdoor seating too but it was a bit cold for that. The food was fantastic and healthy. So great to get some real vegetables in Vienna. This place was without a doubt a favorite in Vienna and on the trip too. Lunch only. It is also a store with produce and packaged items.

Pros: Food, Menu

Amazing! - Edit

A great break from all of the heavy, processed stuff that one can end up eating while traveling. The food is very simple: a soup and a plate, and the plate always has one grain like rice or couscous and 5 different veggie dishes. All really fresh, tasty, and simple. You can get regular size, or really go large for a few euros extra. Lots of yummy drinks.
Beautiful secluded courtyard, but not much seating, so an off time is your best bet if you want to sit outside on a nice day.

Cute! - Edit

The garden is one of the cutest and cosiest in all of Vienna. Food is really good and healthy but after less than an hour, I was hungry again. And I'm usually not a big eater. So maybe order a big plate if you're really hungry :)

Pros: the garden!, very nice staff, good location

Cons: portions sometime not big enough

Great food - Edit

Makro 1 is a small shop that offers lunch from around 11:30am - 2:30pm altough you should not arrive late. Outdoor seating in summer in the nice patio where the shop is located. The lunch is vegan and microbiotic and from the 5 times I´ve eaten it always was delicious. They offer good vegan desserts as well.

About 99 % of the products they sell are vegan.

Pros: great lunch, good vegan desserts, sells almost no non-vegan products

Cons: limited seating inside

Highly recommended! - Edit

A highly recommended place and a must to visit if or when you are in Vienna. Not super easy to find unless you carry a GPS/phone but it's close to the camera store on the same street in on a court yard which may or may not be advertised from the street. Food with a local/traditional touch, soup and several fantastic desserts to choose between. In and outdoor seating. Extremely nice and helpful staff who speaks english. Make sure you take notice of what times food is served which is not the same as the opening hours in the shop. Highly recommended!

Little gem of a place in Vienna's 1st district - Edit

This small vegan eatery is located on "Fleischmarkt", which in German means "meat market". That says something about the sense of humour of the people running the place.
It has one single menu, prepared in the kitchen behind the counter in large pots for all to see. The menu is composed of a soup (facultative) and a plate of 4-5 vegetable and leguminous. It might look like plain simple food but don't get fooled by the lack of decorum, you will be impressed by the subtle flavours and originality of the various dishes. If the weather permits, you can sit outside in the little courtyard, or inside at the big table. It's all very very friendly and unpretentious. And since the restaurant doubles as organic shop, you can also buy your fruits and vegs there.

Pros: the food, creative and very tasty, The place, a little quirky, friendly, The people, warm and unpretentious

Cons: Can be hard to find the first time, Not many places to sit inside

Too small to sit - Edit

We found this cute restaurant using our happycow app. We were visiting Vienna in the winter so there were no patios open. This meant that my family of 5 could not eat at this restaurant. Makro is just that: tiny. There is ONE table inside. One. There is a love seat with a coffee table, and there are a few stools against the window ledge to eat at as well. If there are more than 10 people sitting there is no space for anyone else. Unfortunately for everyone else that means that our family would take up half of the available seats. It was really too bad that we couldn't sit and eat since the restaurant smelled delicious. (I think it was the soup).
So if more than two are planning to eat here, arrive early or come in the summer sun when you can sit outside.

Pros: Vegan, Food smells good

Cons: SMALL, ONE table, no place to sit inside
