Fodor's Review

The Sachertorte is the culmination of a family saga that began with Franz Sacher, Prince von Metternich's pastry chef. Franz's son and his wife, Anna, Vienna's hostess with the mostest, opened the 19th-century hotel. The restaurant Anna Sacher, with sparkling chandeliers casting a warm glow on green walls hung with gilt frames, offers a lighter version of traditional Austrian cuisine. The restaurant has two menus—one with traditional Austrian fare, and an "innovative" menu, with star chef Werner Pilchmaier serving up tasty dishes, such as yellow bell pepper soup with lamb and sage. The slightly less formal Rote Bar, at the front of the hotel, always has classics on offer, including Tafelspitz (boiled beef), the favorite dish of Emperor Franz Josef.
