We booked this for our anniversary dinner after we strangely struggled to find places that were open on a Saturday night. The decor is very opulent and a little kitsche, however, the food and service were superb, particularly the wagyu beef. They were also very sweet and surprised us with a free anniversary dessert. Very expensive and wine was outrageous... More

Loved the place! Excellent food, friendly staff and the best for me.... we could stay there with our 4 years old child, the staff really special with him and he really enjoyed food. I will come back for sure.

From the warm greeting to the final departure Le Ciel is happy to see you. The service is professional, helpful and unobtrusive, yet welcoming and warm throughout. The food is spectacular. My wife started with a beautiful shrimp appetizer followed by a Lobster and Veal dish that she adored. I started with a duck terrine with caviar and had the... More

We dined here in May 2014, we were staying at the Grand Hotel at the time. The meal was good, but not excellent (we had better in Vienna) and we had to wait a very long time for our main course (> 30 min between 2 courses). I class excellent as including a certain amount of style in the presentation... More

This was our second time at this restaurant. The first time was just perfect--the food, service and timing. This time, we arrived for our 7pm and it took till 9:45 to finally receive our main dish. It was a long night as we watched others who arrived after us get served. Yes, it takes time especially having several dishes. However,... More

Just had an amazing meal. Wild garlic Soup ( for those of you from the UK I'm taking this as my luxury on Desert Island Discs) Baby Monkfish and for desert artichoke mousse with fresh artichoke and white chocolate. Sublime meal with fabulous wine parings, I never knew Austrian Reislings could be so good, am absolutely over the bad press... More

Sometimes, diners are uncomfortable being the first seated in a restaurant. In our case, there were benefits to having an early reservation. Having the full attention of the very professional staff was a guilty pleasure. Even as more diners arrived, the staff remained focused on providing a great experience. Every course of our meal was fantasic and the wine recommendation... More

A wonderful ambience and an experience of grandeur on the top floor of the Grand Hotel. Service was very professional and discreet and the whole experience a delight. The restaurant is bathed in soft yellow colours and the furnishings elegantly match. The food was extremely good and the evening ended all too quickly! I would not hesitate in recommending this...
