Best vegetarian French cuisine

We went to chez nico after reading all the reviews on trip adviser and we are glad that we went there. It's the best restaurant in Innsbruck serving vegetarian French food ... With great French wine.

Some will recognise that the title here is a play on a famous advertising slogan. However, whilst in my mind Carlsberg were substantially overstating their product, this restaurant really is up there with the very best. Dishes were creative, perfectly balanced and matched by a great selection of wines available by the glass. These wines had the necessary elegance and... More

This truly was one of the best meals of my life! It was a 7 course (2 desserts) pleasure, with a small number of equally satisfied clients. The imagination in composing each of the courses, from taste, color, sometimes surprising ingredients was amazing. Nico is a treasure.

I don't want to be modest but so far the beat dinner ever. I am not a vegetarian and I love to eat meat, but no other food has ever tasted so good as the menu at chez Nico. A wonderful experience and very friendly and professional service.

They have a fantastic vegetarian-degustation menu which (even for a meat-lover) will blow your mind. They have a good selection of wines and for a 2-person business, they run it very smoothly.

Although I only had lunch here, its save to say that this place deserves multiple visits. The cucumber soup was fantastically fresh and super subtle in flavours. Very good black noodles with fresh tomatoes, nuts and herbs. But the stars of the meal were the incredible warm home made bread, the lovely, lovely plum juice and the perfect desert.

We are not vegetarians at all, but we decided it would be worth a try to go for a completely vegetarian gourmet menu - even at the end of winter, when vegetables are not at their plentiest. And yes, it totally was. The essence from mushrooms was perfect, the easter nest with the slowly poached egg fantastic. I personally do... More

The variety of tastes and textures was wonderful. It was a two man team cooking for 6 couples, one cooking, the other serving and explaining each dish is detail. It's not cheap but we knew the price beforehand and the quality is exceptional. After eating 7 dishes we were not hungry - and we do have good appetites. If you've... More

There is only one menu - an eight (I think) course taster - it is inventive, with many surprises and the quality is excellent. My favourite was the coffee bean-infused risotto with a black sesame seed sorbet but only by a narrow margin. There are only a handul of tables so its wise to book in advance - several people...

7 course meal. Except one dish which was good, the rest were simply outstanding. Kudos to the chef. Small restaurant, needs to be booked in advance. A must go if you are vegetarian & happen to be in Innsbruck
