As I haven't stayed at the hotel, my review only refers to the restaurant. The restaurant is located at the back of the Hotel, small and on its first impression lacks quite a lot of style, up-to-dateness and modern interior with its plain walls, uncomfortable chairs and guarden-style tables. However this does seem to fit in with the overall design style of the hotel. If you are looking for a trendy, stylisch place to enjoy your food, this restaurant is certainly the wrong address to go for. However, who buys a book only for its cover?
Isn't the most important part of an enjoyable meal the food itself?
And here I must say I was very pleasantly surprised and the quality of the food makes up for the lack of interior design.
Chosing the menue of the day one might expect to be served some loveless, re-heated left-overs from 2 days ago, which the chef could not serve fresh. Not here!
In my case the menue comrpised freshly prepared white asparagus served with home-made mayonaise. A 1/4 of the house wine (red or white) is included in the meal - however don't expect a Grand Crue here! :-)
The starter was followed by a freshly cooked veal with potatoe cretain, tasty gravy and green asparagus (yes, it was asparagus season).
But don't be fooled, these weren't stingy portions! Quite the contrary and the menue wasn't over yet. A choice of cheese, followed by a choice of deserts and a coffee were still to come. All in all, this 4-course menue left me pretty full (and I am no lightweight when it comes to food), my tastebuds pleasently surprised and my wallet merely €13 lighter.
PS: I am writing this review as I am enjoying my desert & coffee using the free WiFi provided!
