We last visited the stromburg ten years ago and now it seems to be even better. Excellent rooms and we chose the bistro for dinner. Some of the best food we have had the pleasure of tasting in Germany. The highlights for us were the halibut on a bed of mashed root veg. A fabulous salty crust with moist and... More

Since many years we are very familiar with Johann Lafer, his wife Sylvia and their excellent team. The atmosphere on Stromberg castle is always distinguished and elegant; starting in the lounge with a glas of champagne or even better with a glas of German "Winzer Sekt". You feel yourself like a member of the British Royalty, simply marvellous. Menue and... More

Excellent meal and very good service. Everybody was very happy with all courses, and it was actually difficult to choose from the options because everything sounded so good. The wine selection was also outstanding, even if the prices were pushing it a bit... Will go again for sure.

We enjoyed our evening very much. The food was delicious as well as the accompanying wine. The Kaiserschmarren was one of the best I have ever had. The waiters were fabulous. Prices were reasonable. We definitely come back.

On Sunday, September 27th, we had our grand daughter baptized in a nearby village and found ourselves at Val d'Or for a luncheon celebration which stretched over 3.5 hours. The atmosphere reflected a beautiful early fall day, perfectly matched by the seasonal decoration of the restaurant. Staff was outstanding and provided excellent and discreet attention as well as flawless service.... More

We love this place - sure top spot in my top ten restaurants in the world. This is the bistro, the more affordable place. If you can afford, try the Michelin starred Val d'Or Restaurant. And say hello to Johann or Sylvia Lafer from me.

We decided spontaneously to go to Stromburg when we saw the sign on the highway. It was truly worth it. The staff was super friendly and they arranged a table for us even though we did not book in advance plus we had a 1 year old baby. The food was delicious, unfortunately we had to leave after the starter.... More

Came because rated #1, wish I hadn't, long wait to order, longer wait to pay, too busy flirting with locals to attend our party.

Having just arrived to Frankfurt airport and traveling west, our group of four let Samantha, our GPS personality, choose where we to stop for lunch. She could not have made a better selection. Since it was late for lunch and too early for dinner we dined from a limited carte. But everything was delicious! Hot krensuppe with a mysterious spiced... More

The setting is lovely,if for,al and stiff. The service is attentive, if a bit obsequious. The food, however, makes up for all. It is awesome. The wines match the food perfectly. I would not stay in the hotel, but if you are in the area and want to indulge Ina truly amazing dining experience,the this is the place.
