This upmarket restaurant has a Michelin star I believe and thoroughly deserves it. Accompaniments were top notch, crusty breads, good quality butter, decent ( but not exquisite) friandises. Amuse bouche was a meatball, not worth writing home about. After a creamy carrot soup and a mixed salad starter, main courses were a couple of fine salmon trout fillets on leeks and a medley of meats with tagliatelle and spinach: all excellent. The chef is Austrian: so puddings included Kaiserschmarrn and Topfenknödel, though we opted for crème brûlee and the fine cheeseboard. One negative: the coffee, we all agreed, was too strong. But a fine gourmet restaurant and the prices for a weekday lunch (including Saturday) are a snip. We drank fine local oaked red Thomas Geiger Spätburgunder (from Meersburg) which was delicious and not heavily marked up.

Located only steps from the Swiss border on a quiet street, Papageno offers a high level of cuisine combining French technique with local favorites. I started my meal with the goose liver terrine appetizer, served with a peppery gelée and pickled cherries. This was really delicious, among the best fois gras terrines I have eaten. My main course was the zander (pike perch), with capers and diced tomatoes, accompanied by fingerling potatoes, onion rings, and spinach. In between these courses, a delicious ball of basil ice cream was served as a palate cleanser. The menu offers 6-7 appetizers and soups, two main course fish dishes, and four main course meat dishes. There was a good selection of local wines by the glass. Service was friendly and efficient. Papageno met my expectations of a fine dining restaurant, and although not inexpensive, was overall a good value for the quality of the dishes served. I would gladly return on my next trip to the area.

On a spontaneous road trip around Lake Constance, we stayed over in the city of Constance. We were fortunate to pick ‚Papageno‘ for our dinner place. Service was attentive and friendly, the master chef visited every table to receive the guests critiques. Menu was seasonal, ingredients fresh and well-composed. The atmosphere in the restaurant was informal and welcoming. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Trying to find any half decent restaurant in Konstanz seemed impossible. It is a sea of burger joints and poor quality pizzerias. The Papagena is not only OK but excellent.The restaurant is modern,understated and refreshingly free of Lake Constance kitch. The cooking is top class and the chef ( owner?) and staff welcoming and attentive. Of course it is not cheap but not overpriced for the quality it offers..
