One of my favourite restaurants in Merano. The food is consistently good and plentiful. The cuisine is firmly local, service efficient and friendly, prices are correct and the restaurant itself with its internal courtyard (covered in the winter) is very comfortable, and, before I forget, tab water is free (see my review of Sigmund)

not as i expected ,services is ok prices a little bit spicy for what they offer. In 2 we have spent almost 70 euros but it wasn't worth it.for the appetisers I've chosen a plate with cheese and it had a jam with horseradish, they put the horseradish in almost every thing and I didn't like it.

I went here with a couple of friends, we had amazing time and excellent food. I love Forst beer so every point has been completely satisfy. For sure if I will have the chance to come back to Merano this place will be one of my meal. GREAT

Couldn't keep away from this place and we are two dinners in their open air courtyard. Fast friendly service and great Alpine food in the Austrian tradition.

Large dining section, but still very quiet and friendly, efficient staff. Food is local cuisine with options of pizzas and other Italian food. Enjoyed local wines with the food. Our plate was served within a few minutes.

Came here after a long day hiking, thirsty and hungry. Selected the roasted pork knuckle with potato wedges which was more than enough. Albeit in retrospect I would have preferred something less simple and with a bit more veggies. The unfiltered creamy Lager beer was excellent and the dark "Sixtus" was perfect with the knuckle.

I should have known to be wary of southern Italian orrechiette pasta in northern Italy. It was not good. But my husband's schnitzel was quite good, so I'd suggest sticking with the local specialties. The back dining area was loud and service was so fast as to suspect they wanted us in and out as quickly as possible. We may... More
