Found Saxifragra as a very welcome oasis on a day that turned out much warmer than we expected. A friendly, comfortable oasis with a great view and the occasional cooling breeze. Very nice. Food was good too: I had a (variation on a) Caprese salad,...More

The Saxifraga lies above Meran on the Tappeinerweg, a famous promenade that already my great grandparents walked on. The food is authentic in a nice atmosphere. It has a beautiful view.

Visited twice, both times when they were cooking outdoors to order. Really friendly, good food, reasonable value, good location. All in all worth going, and worth returning. Probably our equal top restaurant location in Merano - from our trip at least!

This restaurant makes sure you leave with a smile. Whether it is sunny or raining, you can always eat outside at the large terrace. Food and wine are great. Service with a smile and good knowledge of the wine.
