Make sure you reserve a Table in advanced! The Restaurant Ophelia located in the Riva Hotel in Konstanz is not very big so it comes to no surprise it is booked out very quickly. I spend a wonderful eventing there been granted to enjoy a fantastic prepared 8 Course Dinner by the Chef Dirk Hoberg and his team. The Restaurant... More

Werner came to say "hello" when we were in the bar and quickly re-capped the dietary No-Nos and when he realised my mum had some as well,it was all noted and made for a seamless evening. I will not go into too much detail about the mood as there are so many surprises on the plate,as well as lots of... More

The Ophelia's menu appears to be a model of simplicity - 'crayfish, celery, rice, passion fruit' and 'lobster, courgette, olive, lemon' reads well, but the dishes served contained up to a dozen different elements on the same plate. Having said that, we could not find fault with the flavours. Some of the combinations, in a quinoa garnish for example, were... More

Had the pleasure to enjoy this magnificent restaurant. Two Michelin stars speak for itself! Every dish is made up like a painting and every bite you take explodes in your mouth. Top chef who really managed to not only cook on the highest level, but also create art on every plate. Even if you don't stay at the RIVA hotel,... More

The Ophelia is wonderfully located on the shore of Lake Constance with a marvellous view over the lake to the Swiss Alps. You cannot beat that. The atmosphere inside is lavish and noble. The staff was friendly, attentive and perfect yet at the same time seemed a little tense and lacked a bit of ease and warmth. Each course was... More

I was favorably impressed. We ordered the four course menu. However it is better described as closer to ten courses as the meal is preceded by an armada of small appetizers. In many ways they stole the thunder from the four chosen courses that followed. The cooking is quite precise so that each preparation was what it was meant to... More

I wouldn't say this one of the top 5 meals I have ever had, but I would still call it outstanding. My dinner included beef carpacio (very light, just amount of seasoning), local white fish with gnocchi and sweet potatoes and a light glass of red wine. Totally worth taking the time to cross the water via ferry from Meersburg!... More
