The restaurant is very small. Their website makes you believe you have to dress up to go there. But it is just another seafood restaurant. The food was nice but definitely nothing to write home about! The waiter could definitely get some training on how to smile. Very average place. Don't expect fireworks, just some nice food and that's it.

Fresh, balanced and excellent choice of ingredients for our group of 4, (two grown-, two teens). Clean, friendly atmosphere, relaxed maritime environment in the middle of the mountains... Not a Michelin star..., but most certainly a candidate for the best restaurant in the whole area. Good wine-, and sparkling list, not too many beers to choose from. The seafood, including... More

went here 2 years ago and really liked it. It seemed a bit expensive for what it is now. Didn't love the food, but it was OK. It's very cool though that they serve some dishes on a hot stone plate! If you don't care to spend 50€ per person you can give it a try for the experience!

Horrible food, the worst hospitality, very small place and very expensive! We were a group of 5 and 2 of us got seriously ill after eating here. Not recommended!

Kitzbuhel is the peak of fashion in Tirol. BEAUTIFUL town. This restaurant is patronised by the best-of-the-best, and the food and wine are fantastic! Great menu. Great wine list. Fantastic food. Hot rock was amazing. As was their lobster signature dish. Simply astounding flavours. Bring your wallet. We downed some of the most expensive dishes they serve, and several bottles... More

The lobster is just great. The serving is very good and peofessional. You need to have a reservation for dinner. The "house" wine goes well with the lobster. Also beef specialities look good.

We went here for dinner during our vacation in Kitzbühel and we had a great evening. The starters and the main dishes were great; I can recommend having scallops as a starter and lobster with beef as a main dish. Furthermore the wine and the service were excellent We will definitely go there again.
