“Most fantastic end to our Christmas/New Year holiday”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

My christmas present was a visit to Nurburgring finishing with an overnight stop here with dinner. Truly superb in every way. The room was lovely and comfortable and the meal in the restaurant was the best we have ever experienced on our travels around Austria and Germany.One of this standard in England would have cost far more. I can fully appreciate the awards it has received. The staff were attentive and the breakfast beore taking our leave was excellent. Previous reviewer should perhaps realise that dogs and even children are welcome in restaurants abroad as long as they are well behaved----long may this be the case.

“Dinner with a dog”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

I'm afraid I can't be much help to anyone with regard to this restaurant, of which we had high hopes since it was recommended to us and has featured in Michelin guides. We hadn't booked a table as it was only by chance that we reached Mayen for our overnight stop. After a hushed conversation between the maitre d' and a waitress, the waitress led us to a table. Shortly after we sat down, the maitre d' approached us and asked us to move to another table as the one we'd been taken to was reserved for hotel guests. We sat down at the new table and then noticed that two tables away there was a couple with a dog, which had been supplied with a bowl of water. Not wishing to eat in a restaurant with a dog and at a disfavoured table too, we left in search of somewhere with a warmer welcome and a stricter view of animal hygiene.
