We were staying at the Hotel Sacher and decided to eat here our first night. The food was good, but not outstanding, especially compared with other dinners in Vienna. There were several asparagus dishes. We had 3-4 different servers. They were neither helpful nor attentive, and not at all interested in our dining experience. Our table was by the window... More

We had a really lovely lunch in this restaurant in the Sacher Hotel. Frankly it was the perfect gateway for 1 hour to get rid of the hordes of tourists in Vienna today. The ambience is very rarefied and quiet and the food was good: Schnitzel for me and Dover Sole for my partner with a lovely glass of white... More

With the exception of its iconic period Viennese decor, our dining experience was underwhelming. The service was not bad and you could see the staff of 5 or 6 for this tiny restaurant were not very attentive to the food they were serving. A waitress was de-boning a fish from the kitchen so carelessly that pieces fall off. The petit... More

The Rote Bar is a very plush venue to have a high quality Vienna meal. Although there are other excellent restaurant facilities at the Hotel Sacher, this was my favorite for high quality food.

We stumbled in this restaurant by chance, not knowing that it was part of Vienna's famous Hotel Sacher. We walked in without reservations and fortunately, were able to get a table for lunch. We did not expect what would follow. The restaurant and the hotel were elegant and had an aura of European aristocracy. The service was attentive, though a... More

Description
Enjoy traditional Viennese specialities in this elegant and stylish restaurant. You can either sit in the black and white floor-tiled glass conservatory facing the Opera House or in the grand, dark red damask dining room with large oil paintings and crystal chandeliers. The windows of the conservatory are folded away in summer to make a large open terrace. Live piano music in the evenings adds to the ambience.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
