Michelin Star and the prices to match

The food is great. The staff are proficient. No complaints but we do prefer the traditional Bavarian feel that comes with a lot of the restaurants in Oberstdorf. This is upscale dining by Oberstdorf standards.

We've eaten here a number of times over the years and it's always been good. Check the menu first, make sure they have what you like and book, they always seem to be full. Great atmosphere often with large groups. Not expensive, and very nice food Highly recommended.

Food was excellent here, I would not be able to eat that well 3 courses for 46 Euro back home in Belgium. Great combinations of flavors, and well presented. Professional service as well.

We had no reservation but on a Wednesday night, this place was packed. We got a high top table near the bar which was great because I didn't want to be too close to the live music which they have on Wednesdays - accordian and yodelling - which gets old fast. As soon as we sat down we were offered... More

A very nice German restaurant, which does not appear too traditional. It is a stylish place but not posh. The food is very good and it offers a very good service. The main disadvantage is that you can only reserve a table from 6pm-8pm or from 8pm on. That is kind of common in Oberstdorf but I really dislike that.

Not the most appealing, but due to full terraces in all other places we ended up here. And that was a very pleasand experience after all! Food was very good (german style) and prices very fair. I had the Bergsteiger Schnitzel and was very happy with that after a day of 'bergsteigen'. Portion could have been just a little larger,... More

We have eaten twice in this restaurant and cannot find a better place to eat in Obserstdorf. The food is not heavy as it is in many other restaurants in the town, it is creative, beautifully presented and has many healthy options. Sometimes the only thing healthy on the menu in Oberstdorf is a 'fitness salad' of which one becomes... More

You cannot do better to find the perfect Alpine dinner spot in Oberstdorf than Löwen-Strauss. We had a wonderful meal, served by a smiling "Löwin," whose Australian accent was immensely helpful in translating our dinner options. The restaurant set up large screens to watch Germany play the US in the World Cup (we asked for protection, just in case, but... More

I was among twenty guests invited to a business-type of special meal to highlight the end of a conference. Our host arranged a special, multi-course meal of the chef'a choice and wine pairings. It was creative, beautiful, tasty and elegant. Apparently it is a one star Michelin restaurant. The service was white glove and extremely professional by wait staff in... More

This is a relatively new restaurant in Oberstdorf; it is upscale and different from other typical Bavarian choices. I had the Bergsommer menu for 25 euros: several small appetizers, chicken and risotto, and three small desserts. It was all quite good and elegantly presented. There was entertainment the night we ate here. Give this a try for an elegant meal... More
