Formal, traditional, high-end Viennese meal. The food is reminiscent of what my Eastern European born grandmother would have cooked if she was a good cook. A way to enjoy Sacher torte served in a quiet, comfortable, cozy, high-end setting instead of a crowded, noisy, rushed café. From the perspective of a San Francisco based foodie, everything was all exceptionally good,... More

What a wonderful elegant cozy restaurant in the heart of Vienna. I went with two friends and it was as if we stepped back in time to sheer elegant dining. The food was very delicious and freshly made. And the desserts and coffee was delicious. My favorite place to eat in Vienna. Please make sure you make reservations.

A thoughly enjoyable dinner complete with accomplished piano player in a relatively small restaurant on the front of the Hotel Sacher looking out to the street. Beautiful red toile decor and plush seating. Professional and amicable service; thorough and reasonable wine list with a nice choice of Austrian wines. Tasty Tafelspitzsuppe with Grimes's mockery; and Weiner schnitzel at its best!... More

This is the famous Rote Bar. Probably the most famous restaurant in Vienna. A must go to place. Impossible to come to Vienna and not to go there.

This place looked stunning on the pictures, and I like old fashioned places with athmosphere. The reviews were very good, too, so I booked well in advance. And I was not disappointed. At all. Well taken care of from I came to I left. Was first shown to a table in Die Wintergarten, so I could look at the life... More

We dined at the Rote Bar (which is actually a restaurant located inside the Sacher Hotel) years ago and went back hoping it has not gone the way of some restaurants which, in wanting to modernise, lose their charm on the way. The Rote Bar has not lost its way. The service is still charming and attentive, the food is... More

Set inside the Sacher Hotel, the restaurant has a very elegant atmosphere, with paintings on the walls and red velvet (hence the name) everywhere: yet it is welcoming and not old. We had good food, from the Weinerschnitzel to the baked chicken, however, unsurprisingly for a restaurant in the Sacher Hotel, it was with the desserts that we felt really... More

Having been recommended to visit this place we made sure to get here as soon as we arrived to Vienna. This place takes you back 100 years. The decor alone will blow you away.

Description
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.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood 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 centre. 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.
