We have seen better luncheons and dinners...

It was just a correct business meal, not more, I was somehow deceived as I have experienced much better meals at this place, before, and then with the lady-Chef Jacqueline (she had already left at the time of our visit). Since its first years, Le Ciel used to be one of our family's favorite... read more

I spent three days and three nights in Vienna. Le Ciel was by far the best meal I ate there. Food, service, and ambiance were excellent.

Traditionally on Ash Wednesday at the beginning of Lent there is a final feast . predominantly with fish specialties they offered an exquisite buffet and served dinner in traditional Viennese Style but also with a Japanese Corner to be recommended but quite expensive

As a regulary guests of this outstanding place, we could not miss the oppurtunity of spending Valentine's Day evening there. And it was definitely the best choice! The team settled a special four course menu full of tasty and interessting dishes. But they were nice and helpful in adding one more course and in finding other food possibilities for me... More

This time instead of the two of us, my wife and I were joined by two other dicerning couples, at our recommendation. All came away saying it was the best meal to date in Austria. We went for lunch so we could "graze" through the 13 Euro menu. The scallop with cauliflower, two ways was wonderful as was the creamy... More

I am a big lover of a posh meal - places that offer a tasting menu are my all time favorite - and this is the place to go if you're after great tasting food that's displayed like a piece of art with a waiter that would cut it up for you if you asked (not that you would, but... More

This is a seriously classy joint! Food and service absolutely impeccable, as was the choice of wine suggested with the food. Worth every penny of the quite large bill!

It was for a romantic dinner and the atmosphere was good, enough privacy, the wine was delicious, but the food was mediocre. It was as if they tried too hard to make fancy food and got it wrong... Certainly not in synch with starred restaurants in Belgium, where I live. Don't get me wrong, we have bad ones here too.

There are many choices when it comes to restaurants that offer pure indulgent opulence in Vienna. We booked relatively late for our recent trip to Vienna but wanted somewhere to go out and wear our glad rags and eat rich decadent food!
