Probably the best restaurant in Germany--but by no means the most expensive!
One of a handful of three-star restaurants in Germany. The decor is an odd combination of old carved wood (we are in the Black Forest, after all) and modern elements--white tablecloths, blue tones everywhere. It's cozy, yet exquisite. And the views--a Black Forest valley, with the mountain range on the other side--are stupendous.
The chef, Harald Wohlfarth, may well be the best German chef at this time--and one of the very best in the world. The food is a combination of French inventiveness with some Black Forest flavors thrown in--this is the Schwarzwaldstube, or Black Forest Inn, after all!
The degustation menu--in fact, there are two of them, 135 and 195 Euro--will offer you a plethora of unforgettable experiences. You can also order à la carte, which will probably run you--if you take an appetizer, a main course, and a dessert--around 150 Euro.
The wine list is extensive, and offers everything from reasonably-priced wines to Château Petrus for 800 Euros and up. The sommelier knows every single wine on the list, and will often recommend a cheaper wine if he feels it goes better with your order.
Bring plenty of time with you--we were there for lunch, arriving at noon, and we were not finished until after 3PM. They tell you that you can stay until 5 if you wish, and many do.
