Here Executive Chef Jürgen Lengauer and his brigade pay homage to traditional Viennese cuisine coupled with a range of exciting international influences.

Also on the 7th floor is a leading Japanese restaurant in Austria. ‘UNKAI’ can be translated as “sea of clouds”, and truly no other name would better describe the restaurant serving its heavenly cuisine.

On the ground floor, at the ‘UNKAI Bar & Sushi’ excellent sushi creations await the guest in an easy, relaxed atmosphere, and in summer with its own terrace. The lobby bar “Rosengarten” with its outdoor terrace “Schanigarten” offers great Viennese and international dishes. Furthermore, the hotel’s ‘Grand Brasserie’ is open daily. In the morning the friendly service team spoils its guests with an extensive breakfast, leaving nothing to wish for.
