This restaurant is one of the most scenic restaurants we dined in when he had this year’s trip to Europe, located in the Old Danube part of Vienna this place is serene and very picturesque. This place I guess is not as popular as the usual tourist spots in Vienna hence it does not look as busy as expected, it also helps that it is quite hard to visit if you don’t have you own transport. When we visited this place we did not know what to expect as I just searched online what are the good places to eat in Vienna and this was one on the top list.

Located in the inner suburbs of Vienna Ufertaverne looks more of a river boat dock from the outside rather than a restaurant. I guess it was repurposed to be an eatery because some parts of the restaurant is extended via floating pontoons.

We sat beside the edge where the water meets the wooden planks and just look what type of view we got.

Its magnificent isn’t it, you feel you are far from the city but not because it’s just around the corner.

Anyways while we were enjoying our view we waited for our orders and what’s is perfect with this sunset and river on the side are some seafood. This means we indulged in a mixed seafood platter (Fisch- und Meeresfrüchteplatte für zwei Personen 48,00 EUR), where it consist of skewered prawns, some larger prawns cooked in butter, 2 kinds of fish in which one of them was salmon, some calamari and mussels. Well this was so satisfying and definitely what I call heaven in a plate.

Both we also amazing specially the risotto which we really liked due to its lemony twist. We also did tried their pasta with tomato sauce (Kinderspaghetti mit Pesto oder Tomatensauce 5,80 EUR), even with just tomato sauce this was very good.

I guess we stayed here more than our usual dining time I guess you know why, just look at the beauty surrounding us we are also letting the sun set so it’s not hot when we walk in the old town square of Vienna so we can enjoy the views and not be bothered of the searing heat of the European summer sun.
