A friend who visits Vienna annually recommended seeing the Hotel Stefanie as it is one of the oldest hotels in Vienna. It is located in the old Jewish Quarter of Vienna and an easy walk from the old town centre. We walked by the hotel and looked inside and the hotel exudes history and elegance. We noticed they had a Sunday buffet and the maitre d' was kind enough to get a table for two set up as the whole room was alrady booked. We had a glass of champagne and enjoyed the best buffet we had ever experienced. When you think of buffets the first thing that comes to kind is lots of salads, a few hot dish options, lots of cold appetizers and a tray of fruit with commercial sweets. This buffet was anything but that. As we had come later into the buffet they were out of smoked salmon and our maitre d' got me a side plate of salmon made especially for us. We had a great selection of hot traditional Austrian dishes, soups and desserts that including an outstanding strudel. On top of all that the cost of this buffet was about 60% of what you would pay in the old town centre of Vienna for an average meal. Great food at a great value.

The extensive breakfast buffet caters for all diets, tastes and appetites, including hot food; a huge variety of breads, cakes and pastries; cold meats and cheeses; cereals; fresh fruits; jams and hot and cold drinks, including sparkling wine.
Lunch and dinner menus contain a lot of traditional local dishes, many of which took me back to my childhood. I hadn't eaten Mohn Nudeln in about 50 years and the lunch buffet meant I could have as much as I could eat (and I could eat plenty!).
The service is excellent and if you are there at the right time, you can be amazed and entertained by the wooden partition walls that disappear into the floor.

Our two couples had the pleasure of dining at the Restaurant Stephanie on two of our evenings at the Hoteel. Our experience was wonderful. The ambiance was exceptional. The food was absolutely superb with beautiful presentation. Our wait staff were great, friendly, pleasant, and with a sense of humor that was warmly appreciated by all of us!

A very elaborate breakfast that is served from 6.30 in the morning, making it easy for catching up with the tour plan of the day. Both the cold and the hot items are tasty. Array of breads is more extensive than i have seen anywhere. There is unlimited champagne too. Gives a kick start for the day to anyone, whether on tourism or business.
