Ratings and reviews

Travelers' Choice2018 Winner
Enjoy traditional Viennese specialities in this elegant and stylish restaurant. You can either sit in the black and white floor-tiled glass conservatory facing the Opera House or in the grand, dark red damask dining room with large oil paintings and crystal chandeliers. The windows of the conservatory are folded away in summer to make a large open terrace. Live piano music in the evenings adds to the ambience.

Pros: - Gorgeous space. Lovely ambiance. Live piano music. Cons - Poor knowledge of wine. I know a decent amount about wine, and I asked about two particular wines. The response was that one was "stronger." They should know something about wine when charging over...More
