Expert review of Motto am Fluss
Located on the Danube Canal in a stream-lined glass construction, this popular Vienna venue is a hot-spot for movers and shakers. The trendy café is a great place for a casual lunch or afternoon break. There's a café on the upper level and a classy restaurant with an elegant polished-wood bar downstairs. This is also the embarcation station for the boat to Bratislava.
Try the homemade basil and lime lemonade for a terrific thirst-quencher. The menu is brief: three daily specials, four salads, four main courses and five snacks. The signature Schlachertorte, named after Bernd Schlacher, owner, caterer and gourmet, is a very moist chocolate cake.
The whole place resembles a modern streamlined yacht. Furnishings are chic – like most of the patrons – sleek cognac-coloured booths along one side, in the centre two long tables, with toasters and potted edelweiss, where breakfasts are served from 8am – 4pm. DJs play a hip selection of lounge sound.
Young, friendly professionals are at work here.
On the canal between Marien- und Schwedenbrücke, above the embarkation lounge for the boat to Bratislava.
Two daily specials are available, the vegetarian option costs 6,90, with fish or meat 7,80 euros. Main courses will set you back 8 to 10 euros.
The café on the top floor has the best views and lower prices than the restaurant below. For a table in the sleek Art Deco styled restaurant, with its beautiful mahogany bar, there's a one-week waiting list.
