Probably one of the greatest dining experiences I even had. Bravo, this is worth every Euro, although not cheap at all. Service, quality of food, selection of wines (superbe sommelier) is all way above average, really something you won't forget.

The service was really great with very high professional. The food is interesting and well served but taste is not something special. The price is the big issue. We took only 5 dishes which costed a 150 euro.

We visited Obauer for the 6th time and as always in the past, for us the best dinner possibilities for a gourmet restaurant we do know in Austria. The family owned and managed restaurant is superb in terms of quality and service. You need to...More
