A must for any visitor - amazing views and very good food.

The views of this restaurant should not be missed and are unlike any other. Thankfully, the food is also enjoyable. Not the most life-changing meal, but very good. A nice break from the traditional heavy Viennese food, while still being rooted in regional cuisine. Service was friendly and... read more

Myself and my wife visited here last night. It is possibly the most opulent and expensive restaurant we have visited in any european city. But don't let that put you off. We approached the Soffitel from the north side of the Danube canal and saw Le Loft glowing on the 18th Floor. The restaurant has its own concierge and this... More

Perfect place for Vienna panorama and people watching. The staff here are friendly and efficient. The range of food and wine is interesting and enjoyable. Prices are typical of an international brand hotel but not exorbitant. The views at sunset are worth the bother of taking a camera with you when you dine or imbibe here on the 18th floor... More

This beautiful place with great views of Vienna is located on the top floor of the Sofitel. The setting is rather modern and hip and they play inane Eurotech music which is a bit of a downer. The food is excellent. We started with a couple of "Aperitifs" small bites to go with your cocktail. The yellow beet with citrus... More

We recently enjoyed an evening meal here with friends. The views are wonderful. The menu was complicated to understand price wise. However the food was reasonably good. I had mussels as one course and was somewhat alarmed to find one of them had a broken shell. If I'd seen it earlier I'd have sent the lot back. I've been taught... More

My friend and I went for drinks on a Sun night. What a fantastic view of the city and beyond. I wish we had booked for dinner as the tables have a great view. The cocktails are quite pricey but this is a very classy, sexy place so worth it. You would definitely need to book for dinner but we... More

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighborhood Profile
Leopoldstadt
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city center and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
