Great food in an elegant restaurant on the shore of the lake in Hallstatt. Weather was nice so we sat outdoors. It was a quiet day so we found a table but most tables were occupied. Reservations would be a good idea.

I selected this place during our day trip to Hallstatt as it's noted as the best restaurant around, expecting of having a nice, tasty dinner on the lake. Well, was quite disappointed in terms of waiting time as in terms of quality of the meal...( as staff told us that due to festival they prefer to serve people there. I found it very bizarre and unprofessional). After waiting for nearly 50 min or so for our order, at the end I got a fish very dry :( (they had to cook it apparently differently to remain a succulent fish meat). In fact, the lake side and the view makes it wonderful. Would be good if they improve their quality. Quite overpriced.More

The restaurant does not offer traditional Austrian food as they claim on their website but there is a lot of Asian influence. It is worth a visit just for the lake view.

The restaurant had nice staff and an excellent view. We were lucky enough to have a seat next to the lake. The food was good a bit pricey I must say. Friendly staff like Hamed if I am not mistaken from Iran. Would definitely return.

Discovered a huge dead fly in the pasta dish, after eating it for a bit. We called a waiter and pointed to it explaining that it was already there when served. He removed the dish and disappeared, returned after a bit and asked casually if...we want to order smth else. We declined and said we‘re not paying for this one either. He acted surprised and asked if the fly was already in the dish when served. When we confirmed he asked us if we want something instead and assured that the ‚fly pasta’ will be removed from the bill. We ordered a strudel, as appetite was ruined. And at the end got a bill with that pasta on it! Had to debate again for the pasta dish to be removed, got no compensation, or any real apology! Needless to say that we had to pay for the strudel too. Never again!More

Food was delicious, but a bit overpriced. Ordered a steak, but was actually not asked how I would like it. Anyway, it was very good. Service was very friendly but seemed to be not too experienced.

You are paying for the location. The food was okay - neither great nor bad. Reservations are a must for a lakeside table, and as hotel guests, we seemed to have priority over others. Waiters were very attentive and helpful. Eating/drinking here was one of...the highlights of our trip.More

Great location right at the lake, nice terrace but not the quality I’ve expected here. Service seemed unprofessional (our starters were served before we even had a chance to order any drinks), fish was overcooked and dry, potatoes still a bit hard in the center....Only the pasta was really good. Overall a nice location with potential.More

We had lunch and it was the perfect spot on the lake, the service was exceptional, with all the employees paying attention to every gesture and taking care of every need. And the food...wow! Absolutely exquisite!
