Everything looks so elegant and impressing in there. the restaurant is small but the ambience is very nice. we had the opus menu with accompanying wines. this menu is pricey but if you choose such a restaurant you have to be aware with those...

The food: tried the Imperial menu in 6 courses and was convinced. Initially I feared some of the combinations were trying to imitate classics that don't belong there - but I was wrong. The arctic chard for example was beautifully cured, with sweet beetroot and a very light yoghurt/dill combination that really lightened it up. The foie gras before that... More

I had the full course meal and truly enjoyed all of their dishes! The wine pairings were wonderful and I appreciated their flexibility with being able to choose a couple of pairings rather than the whole set for each dish. I must say I was even rather spoiled on this occasion and had to help my wife out as she... More

After a bone-chilling winter's day in Vienna, we were pleasantly surprised to be able to walk into a late Saturday night reservation at the Imperial Hotel's one star Michelin restaurant OPUS. The room is itself cozy and set apart from the Imperial Café in the front of the hotel. The two principal servers easily kept up with the small number... More

It doesn't matter whether you are in Vienna for a day or for a week, you need to visit this place. The culinary experience is remarkable. I personally suggest the signature degustation of OPUS menu, which is all senses experience.

Opus was my second Michelin star experience in Vienna and probably the one that worked best for my family. My wife and daughter are vegetarians and sometimes have a sub-optimal experience in top restaurants (i.e.. the amuse bouche is not appropriate for them). Opus had a full vegetarian tasting menu as well as two traditional menus (which my son and... More

The restaurant itself is relatively smaller and only looked after by two servers but this only served to to make the setting more intimate and personal. We enjoyed the fact that we could choose the courses we wanted when selecting the five-course option - can highly recommend the cheese course! We also enjoyed the bread and butter which was offered... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
