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! Le Ciel had a table and the menu and setting looked just what we wanted. Set in The... More

we were during the Christmas holidays in Vienna and this was by far the best meal we had in Austria. We chose the 3 course meal, the lobster consome was out of this world, both the aroma and flavor. For main dish, the veal was rightly cooked, paired excellently with mushroom and mushed potatoes, all in all perfect. The desserts... More

We enjoyed a wonderful Christmas lunch at Le Ciel today. My wife and daughter both have coeliac disease and finding great gluten free food is challenging. The team at Le Ciel could not have been more accommodating and caring in their approach. As soon as we were seated the head waiter explained to my wife what was gluten free (almost... More

We have eaten in high end restaurants in London and New York. This was still one of the best I ever had. The food was excellent. We had the menu accompanied by wine. The prices are very reasonable.

I was really disappointed with this restaurant. Mys husband and I went there for a romantic night and we regretted going there. To start, the decoration was really ugly and outdated. Very 90's. I could not get the potted plants on the floor. Second, the food was bad. We had the course menu, and the only good dish was the... More

I booked this restaurant as a surprise for my girlfriend on our first night in Vienna. The room itself is grand and very inviting, and the service is even better than we had anticated.

We chose this restaurant for a special evening visiting Vienna with friends. The Grand Hotel is a beautiful setting, and this restaurant is on the top floor. We all chose one of the 5 course tasting menus and enjoyed the carefully balanced tastes of each dish. I did not expect the beetroot risotto to be so amazingly good so far... More

Value for money menu at €48 for 3 courses without wine, good atmosphere and service, great cheese trolley, just the place for a birthday dinner for four! Only issue is that the sommelier takes control of the wine and near the end tops up the men but not the ladies - did not go down well. Maybe it's an Austrian... More

Excellent meal, excellent service. It is hard to find the restaurant as it is in the 7th floor of the Grand Hotel Wien. Next time when visiting Vienna will surely go just there.
