Worth a Trip To Innsbruck Just To Eat Here

We have been hearing about Chez Nico for several years from relatives who travel here every year on business. While traveling from Linz to France, we broke our trip in Innsbruck for two days just so we could eat here. It is like no other restaurant we have encountered in decades of travel around... read more

I went there for dinner.They served only a fixed price, 7 course menu. The food was creative and excellent, the wines too and the service charming (don't forget the tip, service is not included). It was a bit pricy (60 euros for the menu), but really worth it. You should get there early (no later that 8:30 pm) because they... More

But this restaurant you must try.. Forget everything you had vegetarian... Currys, mezze, rebuilds of Schnitzel... this chef just creates dishes without meat.. Simple, stunning, amazing ... Wirth 1 Michellinstar

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. We took the 7 course meal.... And each and every course was better than the other... One of the best meals in Innsbruck .... More

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
