We did not stay at the Grand hotel (too pricey for our budget) but when funds permit, perhaps a retirement gift, we would definately do so. We still enjoyed the lobby area and the most elaborate washrooms we've ever used. They are on the basement/lower level but open to the public. There is marble everywhere and gold plated sinks, taps, as well as fresh orchid flowers. After relaxing in their sumptous sofa in the lobby and then washing up in their grand washroom, we both felt that it was the least we could do to pay back their hospitality and eat our dinner here. We were not dissappointed. We were in the mood for sushi and had unfortunately missed their Sunday sushi all you can buffet from 12 to 2:30 pm. on the upper floor of the hotel. We did have a look inside and it is a nice but typical japanese restaurant.
We opted to eat dinner outside on their ground floor terrace which overlooks a main street. The food was very good and the service attentive. The pastry dessert were excellent, especially the strawberry eclair.
The next day we were in the area again and decided to have lunch at the ground level sushi restaurant. There are a few tables outside as well as inside. This is the sister restaurant of the previously mentioned main restaurant upstairs. The sushi plates are varied and reasonably priced for the quality and quantity received.
If we're back in Vienna we still have 2 top floor hotel restaurants that we have not yet sampled at the Grand, and hopefully, this next time, we will be able to afford to stay here.
