A symbiosis between Burgenland and France. From the terroir of the Seewinkel and a French understanding of good food.


Because we are closely connected with France. Because the inhabitants of our village are called "French" in the neighboring communities. Because we work on our winery with Chardonnay, a French grape. Because we love French food and the French understanding of gastronomy. That's why France had to become part of our gastronomic vision.

At the same time, we have a deep connection with our region. The Seewinkel and its treasures are an integral part of our philosophy. Tasting the terroir of a region is part of our understanding of what makes good, what makes great cuisine. Whether it's eel from the lake for breakfast, eggs from the godmother in the cookie or tomatoes from Erich Stekovics for dîner. Our cuisine is deeply rooted in the terroir of the region.


A symbiosis between Burgenland and France. A harmonious overall concept that combines Seewinkel terroir and Burgenland tradition with a French understanding of good food. At the breakfast table, at afternoon tea in the café or at dinner in the restaurant.



In our restaurant you can enjoy an always changing menu. Since we only serve one menu and it is unfortunately not possible for us to serve you otherwise, we ask you to announce any intolerances at least one day before your visit.

Breakfast in our restaurant is reduced and rich at the same time. Despite regional focus it is not dogmatic. The best cheeses from France and cold meats from Italy and Spain find a place with us as well as regional specialties.

Brekfast is served for hotel guests daily from 8:00 to 10:30.

Excellent Selection


We had great pleasure in putting together an excellent wine list. With great variety. With wines from Austria. And France. But also from the rest of the world. We have composed a wine list for you that reflects the virtues of our cuisine and complements and enhances the dishes. Our wine list with over 600 positions is a reflection of our philosophy - with wines that are rooted in their terroir, elegant and full of finesse.
