“Lovely location for a lunch but check prices as can be expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

This is another lovely little restaurant and hotel in the wine streets of Styria. I would really suggest that you take a look at their website before visiting as it is very picturesque. If you are down this way you may be pleasantly surprised if you pop in for a quick lunch. Have a look at the prices before you go in, otherwise you may get a shock. It is or rather can be very expensive.

We went in as a family as my mother in law knows the owners. She lives just down the valley from this place.

The menu is definitely Styrian and may not be to everyone’s taste. I found 2 or 3 things on the menu that I could eat and I went for the Zwiebelrostbraten mit Backkartoffeln. For those who don’t know this is roast beef and onions with roast or fried potatoes.

At a cost of 14.90 euros this was a little expensive but I presumed there would be a reasonable sized portion. There wasn’t.

What was presented in front of me was one sliver of roast beef in some gravy with onions placed ever so neatly on the top. Whilst lying beside this was the inside of one whole fried potato about the size of maybe 2 golf balls. The whole thing took less than 2 minutes to eat.
I must say the beef was very tender and also very tasty, all three mouthfuls of it and the potato was only half cooked and had been fried in schmaltz I think which is a sort of pig fat. An unusual taste to say the least.

To my way of thinking this was almost daylight robbery for the price and I certainly do not want to return although I feel I may have to due to the rest of my family having a perfectly adequate although also overly expensive meal.

It is hardly surprising that this place is able to shut for 3 months in winter and 10 days in midsummer due to high prices and extreme profits.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We were passing through on the way back from Slovenia, so we only stopped for lunch. It was so delicious and picturesque that we decided to come back for a mini-break in this lovely wine-growing region.
The food is excellent, fantastically well presented, combined with very good wines, and finalized with a selection of fabulous desserts.
This is a fantastic region, with famous wine growers like Tement and Gross just around the corner, and very much worth a trip.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Six of us just stayed at the Landhaus for 2 nights while exploring the Stryia wine region of Austria and everything about our stay was wonderful. First, you will love the innkeepers/owners Michaela and Andreas Muster. Their English is perfect and they are delightful. Secondly,the food is wonderful -- locally sourced, healthy and so tasty -- and the wine list (350 in total) is fabulous. Thirdly, the inn is quaint, comfortable and modern -- with an outdoor pool for summer.

It was exciting to be the first American visitors but now we have to encourage more to follow suit. If you are looking for Napa Valley reset to the 1960s - when it was quaint, quiet and rustic -- then you must visit this region and stay at the Landhaus.

Room Tip: The rooms have a lovely view of the adjacent vineyards and the mountains. Breathtaking!
