The atmosphere and food reminded me of time spent in Innsbruck, Austria!!!! The main benefit was I didn't have to pay the airfare. Anyway, the food was delicious and the wine recommended was so smooth and full bodied. Highly recommended.

Oh, my! The portions were so generous and tasty to boot. Our server was new but so good while one of the managers even took time to sit with us for a bit and share Holland-based conversation. We loved our evening at Alpenrose.
