This is an absolutely first rate fine dining Restaurant run by Chef and hotel co-owner, Dirk Melsheimer. Whilst the clientele may be mainly hotel guests, a good many locals and tourists from other places dine here, particularly on weekends such is its reputation. All staff are professionally trained, courteous, friendly and efficient. Much of their vegetables and garnishings come from their own garden on the property, thus ensuring freshness. They also source produce from the local streams, farms and forests which include smoked fish, crayfish, perch, beef, and wild game.
Dishes embrace different cultural & regional influences, eg German and French. Three, 4 & 5 course menus are available including gourmet and vegetarian. When I was there, the Menu, being seasonal, included Mains of Beef Carpacco, Rump Steak, Beef Roulade, Pot Roast, Marinated Pork with prices ranging between E10.50 – 22. The Desserts were to die for and so beautifully presented. On my last night I was part of a party of 4 and total bill for the most amazing 3-course dinner, including wine was around E150! Afterwards one can retire to the Bar/Fireplace and enjoy a wide selection of cocktails and brandies from a local distillery. A children’s menu is available.
The Restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner from 8am to 11pm and The Restaurant itself includes a Conservatory which overlooks the river.
In the Summer, there is a Terrace where you can dine and a Rock Garden.

I booked a table a Thursday evening together with some of my friends that stayed at the hotel. I ordered a fixed four course menu and told the waiter to create a wine menu that would suit the dishes.

- "Vitello Tonnato 2.0" - a take on the classic Italian dish - with veal and tuna sauce was beautiful and tasty.
- "Fresh creme soup with wild garlic, shrimp and chicken breast"
- "Saltimbooca from fowl" with sage, mousseline potatoes, leek and Riesling sauce was also a take on a classic Italian dish, and was really nice.
- "Exotic Valrhona chocolate" - a compicated and really nice dessert.

All dishes were beautifully presented on the plate.

The waiter found four nice glasses of wine that paired the dishes very well - a Weissburgunder, two Rieslings and a white Spätburgunder.

The portions were quite big, and I was not able to eat it all. Service level was very good, and we had a really nice evening at the restaurant.

We were a large group of 14 people dining a-la-carte. We ordered about 10 different dishes and paid seperately. All food was served almost at the same time and the waiters new exactly how had ordered which dish. Service was polite, quick and efficient. Individual bills were pre-arranged and "time saving"
By the way - the food was very good and the wines gave "value for money"

Had several meals last week as we were staying at the hotel. Normally, we venture away from hotels for our meals while travelling but the experience here was so perfect, we had four dinners in six days here during our visit to the Mosel region.
Our daughter is a vegetarian, whereas I am very much the carnivore and the selections for each of our tastes were very extensive and satisfied on all fronts.
