Description: The restaurant of the Castel Fragburg perches like an eagles nest on the edge of a cliff, overlooking the valley of Merano and aking in the spectacle of the Dolomites. Michelin has awarded a star in 2013, thereby endorsing accolades from Gault Millau and Veronelli. The cuisine at the Fragsburg combines traditional South Tyrolean cooking with Mediterranean lightness, delivering highest level culinary culture. Head Chef Luis Haller’s authentic creations are aptly supported by a remarkable wine list with 170 bins, mostly from indigenous top growers, with selected Italian and international wines. Service is immaculate and discreet, culminating in a unique style of hospitality which is the rtrade mark of Castel Fragsburg. Subject to fine weather this culinary highlight can be enjoyed from the glass veranda, whilst enjoying the Etsch-Valley or the lights of the Meranvalley by night. Luciano Pavarotti and Ben Kingsley are just two of the many personalities who have visited the Castel Fragsburg. Please make a table reservation.

My husband and I happened to have heard about this restaurant from a real foodie, so we decided to try it for lunch last Sunday. We were not disappointed! We accepted the invitation of the "surprise " degustation ,although there were 2or 3 menu degustations plus the traditional menu. Our whole experience was superb ( and we have eaten ,... More

Based on the very good reviews here, we chose to visit the restaurant on a Monday. While officially closed, the reception assured us the restaurant was actually still open as it was servicing the hotel guests. This turned out to be correct, as there were a few couples dining with us The atmosphere and especially the view are stunning, as... More

Splendid location at 500m above Meran. The view is breathtaking. Although the critics from Gault Millau only gave 15/20 points, we gave the restaurant a try. The experience was worth it, the cuisine was fine and elaborate, the price/ quality ratio ok. Our waitor, Karol, did an excellent job, as well as his collegues. Should we be again in the... More

We stayed for 4 days in the beautiful hotel and could not have had a better experience. The setting is exquisite, truly peaceful and healing. We were greeted heartily by Gunther who saw that all our needs were met. Every staff member was warm and welcoming and we had NO problems with language, even though we are English speakers. Anna...

It was a beautiful day when I and my wife went for lunch in the restaurant of Castel Fragsburg Hotel, so we were able to confirm that the view from there is really stunning. However, the food was just nice and the service less than that. In fact, despite the view, the staff was everything but friendly and the time... More

We happened to book to Castelfragsburg by chance and it was like a fairy tale experience. Awesome panoramic view (ask for the dehor), nice service and fabulous food. Small but surprislingy tasteful portions, creative solutions and never ending "welcome and goodbye bites" from the chef. Not cheap, but you pay to live the fairy tale!

It is my first time traveling around this part of Italy, the more unknown mountainous North. Plenty of top-notch restaurants in this area, nice mixture between German neatness and mediterranean lightness of living and friendliness. The restaurant is somewhat off the track, about 5 miles from Merano city. The view outside on the patio is incredible, though, and definitely worth... More

In this part of italy, it is customary for the chef to send a welcome-gift to your table before the meal starts. It's a small appetiser, something novel and tempting, usually a specialty of the house. At the Castel Fragsburg, we recieved a welcome champagne form the sommelier, and welcome dishes from the waiting staff, the chef, the baker, the... More
