“Beautiful setting, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

It is as good as it gets - the setting is inside the Old Exchange in the botanical garden/flower shop with the most exquisite cuisine. This is the place to go to enjoy a nice meal and a glass of good wine. The lunch menu is very elaborate and delicious - I highly recommend to take the cream soups... Whatever you choose you will not regret it ...

“Our favourite after 3 years in Vienna”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

Hansen is a truly special restaurant as it is located in a corner of a flower and interior decoration shop. The combination is quite unique and having a lovely meal after browsing through the flower shop (closing at 19h) is great. Needless to say the smell of flowers and candles is omnipresent but not invasive.

The food is always really nice, combining European food with Asian flavours. At our last visit, we enjoyed a parsnip soup, followed by salmon steak with sweet and sour vegetables while my spouse had a typical Austrian beef dish (rindgeschnetzeltes) with couscous. The desserts are all home made and imaginative, such as a honey parfait with a cream of marzipan.

The menu changes regularly, hence we are always curious what will be featured the next time we will have dinner at Hansen. So far, we dined nearly 10 times at Hansen and have never been disappointed. Definitely a place to experience!

“No trouble finding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

We paid close attention to all the directions that various reviewers had given, since so many said they had a hard time locating this restaurant in the basement of the stock exchange building. There is a sign out front, but knowing to look for stairs and go through the flower shop were useful! (We did have to leave via another route as the flower shop was closed when we finished--it is around another side of the building, but there was a sign.)

We were glad we took the trouble. We had an excellently prepared meal. I would recommend this restaurant highly, especially if you are tired of heavy food from trying traditional dishes. Our service was fine, even though they were preparing for a large group that was taking over the restaurant for the evening.

“Just lovely restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013 via mobile

Read reviews so had no problem walking thru flower shop to find this little gem! Food and wine excellent and good value. Word of warning...the flower shop closes so exit is thru different door and up a lift. You have to exit on EG and turn to right, down steps, turn left to exit from the Stock Exchange...thought we'd have to spend the night!

“Good International Food in a Nice Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

Good restaurant with a small international menu. Staff speaks English well and are helpful. Service was good.
On weekends you may want to make reservations.
One of the best meals we had during our 3 weeks in Austria.
