We had a nice lunch here. The dessert was by far the best part, but over all it was a good meal. For the price, there are better places in Bressanone.

Dear guest, thank you for your visit. We cook always à la minute and use products from local farmers, as well as biological and slow food products. That's how the price is made up. FAM. Mayr with the Finsterwirt staff

Loads of character and atmosphere in this lovely place! Lunch or dinner are both great! Staff is lovely and very experienced. Excellent wine cellar. Menu is adjusted to the season and most of the ingredients are local produce. We adore this place!

We felt discriminated against from the very start... not sure why... maybe it was when they heard us speaking English. They brought one menu in German and one in Italian and after the rolling of the eyes they left and didn’t return until flagged. We...didn’t even request an English menu. We both speak Italian and German. Shortly after our drinks arrived a party of 4 sat down right next to us on the oversized bench. They received olives and small crackers immediately upon receiving their drinks. That was the hammer for me. Maybe it’s something you must ask for but in all of our travels... over 3000 kilometers... in fine establishments this was a simple courtesy. All the other points were very fine without question. It’s the arrogance I find unpalatable.More

The quality and service was exceptional. We had the 5 course digustation menu and every course was delicious. Our waitress Corine spoke good English and was very friendly. She explained the ingredients for each course and selected matching wines. It was a superb experience.

Can highly recommend this restaurant. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is traditional and the staff goes above and beyond to service their guests . We went for a business dinner and were totally satisfied. Their wine selection is also very good.

We came to this restaurant whilst staying in Brixen / Bressanone because of the TripAdvisor reviews. Staff were helpful and explained everything that was on the menu. We all chose different dishes and every plate was beautifully presented and delicious. Would definitely return if in...the area.More

We had a most delightful meal last night in the most romantic location I can remember. The outside terrace is enveloped by grape vines with ripe grapes at this time of year which you can just reach out and eat. Modern cooking with sensibly sized...portions and lots of local produce. There is a real emphasis on local food in this area. I had a very light, frothy mushroom soup with summer truffles, venison and polenta, followed by local cheeses and then a trio of plum based desserts. Good service ( they coped seamlessly with the fact that it started pouring half way through the meal) and a good wine recommendation- a local Lagrein wine. A step up from other restaurants in the area.More

Well, good and creative food. Service a bit arrogant and not swift enough. Overall a good place, but prices out of balance.
