An old-school paradise of silver plates, heavy flatware and ladies who lunch. Located on the second floor of the hotel that gives it its name, with a spectacular view of busy Karlsplatz, the Königshof hosts a loyal clientele that tends more to Hermès scarves than jeans. But beyond the formal days-of-yore ambience, chef Martin Fauster's food is quite serious and the service both impeccable and warm. There's a three-course seasonally inspired "business lunch" for $57, a bargain that unfortunately cuts out most of the interesting choices available à la carte. Such delicacies include "lobster variations" (a tempura-style fried claw with a purée of green peas, and lobster tail with fresh spring peas and morel mushrooms) and a strong, gamy breast of Bresse pigeon done rare and accompanied by goose liver, as well as a generous selection of fish and meat dishes. The wine list is a true encyclopedia of German, French and Italian classics, testimony to the family-owned restaurant's wine cellar, which survived World War II even as the building above it was destroyed. It's possible to get in and out for a surprisingly reasonable price if you stick to wine by the glass (the German muskateller is especially recommended). But restaurants like this are rare these days, so it's perhaps better to settle in and enjoy the ride.

Closed for lunch and dinner on Sundays and Mondays, except to guests of the hotel.
