Child-friendly restaurants

The self-service restaurant yamm! offers vegetarian cuisine from around the world, from Italian to Indian, from breakfast to dinner. The food incorporates local, organic products; a special child corner is available. Tip: Order a takeaway meal and enjoy a picnic in nearby Rathauspark.

Children can finish off an exciting day at Vienna's Prater at Kolariks Kinderwelt. While the kids burn of energy in the 1,000-square-metre bouncy castle adventure world, the adults can restore their strength at Restaurant Luftburg with Wiener schnitzel, knuckle of pork or spare ribs.

DSCHUNGEL WIEN is a theatre for persons aged 2 to 25 in the museum district. It's also the perfect place for a cosy restaurant. At Dschungel Café there is plenty of space to run around, a play corner, comfy sofas and children's foods. The sidewalk seating in front of the restaurant is just the place to enjoy a meal in nice weather. While the parents relax and sip their coffee, the children can run about in the courtyard of the MuseumsQuartier. Tip: The ZOOM Children's Museum is right across the way!

Not far from the House of the Sea (Haus des Meeres)  is the restaurant Naturkost St. Josef with connected organic food shop, serving organic and vegetarian lunch dishes as well as soups in various sizes, a salad buffet, snacks and freshly pressed juices. A changing table and toys are available. Outdoor seating is available along the sidewalk in summer.

There is much to discover in a visit to the Schönbrunn Zoo! When children's stomachs start to growl, it is high time for a snack. At the heart of the zoo, restaurant Kaiserpavillon is a beautiful spot for a rest and to enjoy breakfast, lunch or a even just a coffee. Café Atelier Nonja in the zoo ORANG.ery pampers visitors with exotic and international dishes as well as a view of the adjacent, modern orang-utan enclosure with its four residents. At Eissalon Rhino-Bar you can enjoy delicious organic milk ice cream and a view of the Indian rhinoceroses. Gasthaus Tirolergarten offers an idyllic garden with grill in addition to the cosy indoor dining space and serves Tyrolean specialities and Austrian dishes (can also be reached from outside the zoo).

Just a pleasant walk away from Schönbrunn and the Vienna Technical Museum is Hollerei, where vegetarian meals are served in a relaxed and modern atmosphere. Child-size portions and chairs as well as toys are available. On "Family Saturday", kids from 0 to 10 years-old receive one main dish free. A children's cooking class is also available upon prior arrangement.

Aimed specifically at families, the restaurant Family and Friends is located between the Urania and the Prater and can also be reached on foot from the city center. A committed team ensures that the food here is a fantastic experience for young and old - with children's play corner with kids TV, snuggly chairs, painting sets and the restaurant's own children's menu.

You can enjoy a fabulous view of Vienna at the fully glass-enclosed café-restaurant Oktogon am Himmel. The menu offers seasonal and light traditional cooking as well as international cuisine. Little adventurers can explore the nearby wooded playground with balancing stations and a "forest organ" as well as the Tree of Life Circle, where audio stations provide information about the 40 trees. A visit to the nearby children's farm on Cobenzl is another fun activity.


Enjoying Gault Millau cuisine with children - that is possible in Vienna: Every Sunday from noon until 3 p.m. the delicate "Grand Brunch" is served at the Grand Brasserie in the Grand Hotel. To also meet the expectations of the little ones, child care is offered (from the age of three to ten) for a lot of fun while playing, painting and spending time with new-made friends (Reservation is required).
