I am constantly looking for new good places to spend some quality time with my partner, away from kids and tourists, a place where you enjoy to stay for more than one hour and not eat in a haste, or be bothered by noise. By coincidence I read about this place, and it already intrigued me. It is not a restaurant, but it is a family home of the owner and Chef of cuisine, Angelika Apfelthaler. She is making the menus by themes and seasons. For my husbands birthday I tried to book a table, but the restaurant was sold out weeks in advance. Finally we got a table. We arrived at seven as the confirmation mail said.
We arrived in the 13 district, parking is not a problem. It has even a lift for handicapped, which I find very good. We were greeted by the Chef/owner Angelika Apfelthaler in a warm and friendly manner. The style of the "dining room" has a Mediterranean-Oriental touch. You can see the kitchen and all the preparation are made right in front of you. I always like to see the kitchen of a restaurant, this one was impeccable clean and open, the Chef proudly presented there her creations.
The weather was warm and we were seated at a beautiful little corner table at the terrace overlooking a quiet and peaceful garden. Although the terrace is not big, there were another 5 couples, each of us had enough space and privacy.
Everything about "the dining room" showed good taste. The 5 course menu was simply delicious, one course was better than the other. Each course was explained and served by Ms. Apfelthaler herself, suggesting good wines that go with each dish. As I am not a wine drinker, I had a fantastic "apple champagne" non-alcoholic. We spent well over 3 hours there. At the end of the dinner we were served a good Italian espresso with the best chocolate fudge cake I ever had (... and when it comes to desserts, I am an expert, trust me...).
The dinner costs 55 euro per person (drinks not included). The evening was well worth it, and we will sure return again in a couple of months.
Highly recommended for a special night out. This is the perfect secret little get-away, go there before your friends do ;)
