Quite small and cosy, which could be a plus, but also makes the bar quite full quite often. Dividing the smoking section makes no difference as the whole bar is full of smoke on a full night. The dim lights make it hard to judge the appearance of the beers. However everything else is superb. The prices are competitive, the selection of Belgian beers is awesome and the waiters serving tables helps a lot when the place is full. Sorry for the harsh opening. This is a really good bar worth visiting when in Vienna.
Pre-Ratebeer this used to be my favorite beer pub in Vienna, mainly because of the extensive list of belgian beers. I gave it another try yesterday, unfortunatly I was not fully satisfied. Upon entering we were greeted with a rather unpleasant smell, probably a mixture of bad air, food smells and smoke (the pub has a smoking section). We found a table right away, which was lucky, because the place is not so big, and usually its quite full. We ordered two beers, my gf a belgian one, I ordered a bottle from a small austrian brewery. Because of the smell in the pub, I couldnt really make out so much of the smell of the beer. After a little while I also found out that there wasnt so much smell to the beer mainly because my beer was served too cold. My gfs beer was fine (the belgian one). We went for another round (one austrian, one british beer) and again both beers were way too cold.
In previous visits, I never liked the austrian beers Känguruh had on offer. I realize now, that I probably didnt like them because they were also served way too cold, meaning they just couldnt live up to their full potential.
So if you go there, either wait until your beer warms up, or go for one of the belgian beers, in our small sample the belgian beer was the one that had a warmer temperature.
Price-wise, in camparison to all the other "Craft Beer" pubs in Vienna, the prices at kanguruh are very good. Most of the austrian beers can be had for 3,80 euros for 0,33l. while most of the belgian beers are 4,30 euros (a couple even 3,80 too), except the big bottles (0,75l) of course. usually the other craft places in Vienna sell all their foreign stuff for prices of at least 5 euros and up..
For nostalgic reasons I gave it a rather good rating. And in comparison to the other places it proably still is ahead, or there just isnt that much competition quality-wise in Vienna right now..
great belgian bar in vienna. they have a fantastic selection of belgian beers in addition to beers from austria and germany. all bottled. they have about 6 or so taps of local offerings. nothing out of the ordinary when in comes to austria. service is good even when it’s been busy. the price is on the high side, but for the selection it’s worth it if you’re looking to drink good beer.
a wide range of belgian beers, and other international or austrian specialities. and cheese as snack, which is belgian too! they offer the right glasses for every beer too.
what i don´t like thats its crowded all the time, this doesn´t fit to a cozy, belgian styled beer bar. and the beer is too cold as well. but as it is hard to find a place with more then 10 beers in austria, its a miracle!

Propably the bar in Austria with the best selection from Belgium! Very extensive, rotating beer list with some great Belgian or German beers you won’t find elsewhere in Austria! They also always take care of Austrian craft beer with a small, rotating offering. The service is average and they almost have no food. The bar is always crowded, reservation recommended! In summer they also have a nice sidewalk cafe.
Great hidden gem in Vienna with a unbeatable variety of Belgium and other beers. They have over 100 different beers only from Belgium which is very rare that you find anywhere in Europe except Belgium of course.
Unintersting selection on tap. I’d say head straight to the bottles. That said, they had bottles that were not listed in the menu. On my visit they had all the beers from the Kocour brewery of Czech Republic. Don’t hesitate to ask the staff for any non-listed brews, they speak a very good english. Ambiance was really nice. The jazz music paired well with the candle lights.
Nice place for beer in Vienna, very good selection of Austrian and German beers, with pretty basic Belgians. Prices could be lower, but nevertheless are acceptable. I agree with mross that most of the beers are served too cold.
Very small, cosy and intimate beer bar close to the Westbahnhof. Decent range of Austrian beers (around 6) on draught. Extensive and exciting range of Belgium beers, mostly around €4.30. Nice selection of German beers, for example...Ayinger Celebrator and Schneider Aventinus. I’ve been there are few times now and bar staff are very friendly and attentive. It can get very smokey as it is only a small location and there is nowhere the smoke to escape. Most beers served in proper glassware but my only real criticism is that they serve the beers at a temperature that is way to cold. Overall...a "must-visit" location in Vienna.
