“A really nice place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

I loved the interior design of this restaurant. Modern Bavarian you might call it. Cosy, but not dark or cluttered. The service was very friendly and fairly quick. The menu has a good selection of dishes, and only some are expensive.
Our food tasted delicious, the portions were medium to big in size, and the only thing that bothered me a little bit was that the soup was very hot, and so was the bowl it came in. And the spoon was very big and heavy.
The restaurant has live music on some evenings, but not when we ate there.

“world class!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

I have visited many restaurants around the world, including some of the very best. This restaurant is one is up in the top!

We tried both the normal restaurant and the gastronomic one and both were very good. The gastronomic restaurant offered a number of both traditional dishes, such as goose liver, and newer ones like char with truffle, which were all good or even excellent.

This was the first time we have visited a guide michelin-star restaurant with kids, which we were a bit afraid of, but the way the kids got special attention and food made them love it.

If you consider visiting one restaurant in Oberstdorf, this is definitely the place to visit. We also visited Maximilian and it is not even close in any category (food, presentation, attention paid to guests).

Compared to similar quality restaurants, it is not expensive. If you have a limited budget, you should still visit the non-gastronomic part.
