Rote Bar

The Rote Bar in Hotel Sacher Wien

We ate here mostly because of the dog painting, but also cause it was located in our hotel (all about convenience) and highly regarded for serving classic Viennese food.

Amuse Bouche

Amuse bouche to start, per usual.

Appetizer

Appetizers: beef tartare (with an interesting plum sorbet on the side) and roasted winter squash.

Halibut main

Mains: halibut for me…

Wienerschnitzel

And classic wienerschnitzel for him. Fried veal cutlet never tasted so goooood.

Dessert

For dessert: sweet dumplings…

Sachertorte

And Sachertorte! This is a Viennese specialty, invented in 1832 by Austrian Franz Sacher for Prince Wenzel von Metternich.

Looks like classic chocolate cake, but is laced with apricot jam. Very interesting (and honestly, not my favorite).

Dessert

We just order desserts for the pictures. Oops.

Dessert

Kidding, we also eat them like piggies.

Dessert

So, bless these restaurants for always giving baby desserts after the main desserts.

Exploring

After dinner we did some exploring through the hotel.

Spa

The hotel has a spa on the top floor, but turns out it doesn’t actually have a pool or a hot tub. Just Finnish saunas and an exercise room. Sweat and workout? On vacation? Nope.

But casually meandering through a hotel like a little kid? Yup, sign me up.
