This restaurant is located inside one of the leading restaurants of the world but it feels like walking into an old Austrian farmhouse. The ceiling is low, the wood beams exposed and obviously old. The whole room is overloaded with objects on display, some with religious background. But they still they make it work, it feels like coming home. And so is their hospitality. The table is beautifully decorated and the staff is very friendly and professional.
The food has ambition. Due to my dining companions we only went for the a la carte version but one can see the Chef is pushing.
The menu is a mixture of traditional and local food, the sourcing not dogmatic locavore but the execution without any mistakes. Outstanding dishes were the pumpkin risotto and the variations of venison.
Another highlight was the cheese course. The cheese trolly is a piece of art and completely fits into the environment. The selection is mostly local, ripened to perfection and a great way to finish the meal.
