Your restaurant with the best Viennese cuisine

Ever since the opening of the Wiener Rathauskeller in 1899, it has been considered the “home of good taste”. To live up to this title, we have dedicated ourselves to perfecting Viennese cuisine. In our restaurant we hone it with contemporary trends and seasonal specialities.

The restaurant is located in the neo-baroque Salon Ziehrer, which impresses with lavish carvings, silk wallpaper, gold covered panelling and mirrors.

And our kitchen philosophy is as down-to-earth as this space is magnificent. We epitomise naturalness, authenticity and regionality, and we show you Viennese cuisine at its best.

A responsibility for us and our environment is also a priority for us. We therefore make sure that we treat our resources with care and mainly use regional and seasonal ingredients from local producers. The following products are always organic and from Austria: Butter, milk,

whipped cream, curd cheese, yoghurt, fresh eggs, roast joints and calf’s liver.

Chicken and pork, potatoes, onion, yellow beets, carrots, cabbage, liquid egg as well as wine are sourced exclusively from Austria. And we also pay attention to the regionality and sustainable production of our other suppliers.

We pay special attention to our roasts. The first mention of it can be found in a book from 1740. Roasts have been an integral part of Viennese cuisine since 1800, and they are now served in many ways. We serve 6 different roasts, including onion roast, baked roast and Esterházy roast.

You can enjoy them after a visit to one of the many events, such as the Christmas market or the Wiener Eistraum ice rink on Vienna’s Rathausplatz, or for a business lunch or a romantic dinner. A visit to the restaurant in the Wiener Rathauskeller is always worth your while.
