Kastell is all about the food and the experience. The service was friendly and efficient and the food was incredible. I think my favorite thing about the restaurant was that it was very cozy and not as stuffy as some restaurants can be. We were made to feel welcome as if eating in someone's home. This was great.

We had a special eight course menu for newlyweds. The food was, in all courses, perfect, so were the matching wines. The service was impeccable, as well. Unfortunately, the whole dinner took 4 1/2 hours, mainly due to delays at the begining of the meal. To my experience, 3 hours or at most 3 1/2 should be suitable.

The food was magnificent and the combinations of the food ingredients were unpredictable but delicious. The atmosphere was very elegant and unexpected for a 13th century castle. Service was excellent as was the wine.

We stayed at the hotel and asked to dine in. They booked us at the kastell, their fine dining restaurant. Setting in the crypt is nice but 1.

I stayed in Wernberg for a few days during a recent business trip, and I had the pleasure of going to Restaurant Kastell twice during my stay. The restaurant is located within Hotel Burg Wernberg, a renovated castle. I had heard that the chef, Thomas Kellerman, received two Michelin stars. I had never tried such highly acclaimed cuisine, mainly because... More

Great historic place. So happy I stayed in a castle rather than a regular modern hotel. Great place for weddings or just to celebrate a birthday. Very comfortable beds and the food was good but very expensive.

We just dined at the Kastel Restaurant - and had the full 8 course degustation menu (which really became more like 12 with extra treats from the kitchen).
