Located in the old town area of Villach Austria. Located on the boarders of Slovenia and Italy. Lots of things to do and see in this area of Europe. Good location. Super foods of the area.

I've been here for lunch and I ate in the inner garden. it's really a nice place and the food is really good, especially the goulash. Staff is nice and they speak a bit of Italian.

One of the best traditional restaurants in Villach is the Hofwirt. It serves local cuisine in a charming location directly at the Hauptplatz (Main Square).

For guests in Carinthia/Austria ask for local specialities like the Ritschert, the... More

I recommend to have your meal in side and then go out to the Hauptplatz and sit in one of the many outdoor Cafes to have your Espresso, delicious Ice or a... More

It offers good home food, large portions at a very reasonable price and it's all done with smiling waiters, unobtrusive care, in a lovely relaxed atmosphere. You wouldn't know that this place exists from the street. You have to work... More

We spent 12 days in Eastern and Central Europe for our honeymoon and tried many restaurants. This one was hands down the best food I had while we were gone. I am still salivating thinking about the food. We walked in under the "Hofwirt" sign and found the entrance further in on the left. The gentleman at the front didn't... More
