We stayed four days and had breakfast and dinner each day in this beautiful Relais and Chateaux resort. The setting in the hills above Merano, Italy is spectacular. One drives from Merano on a beautiful quiet road through classic European orchards and vineyards to reach the Castel Fragsburg. We stayed at several places in Italy and Switzerland on this trip,...

Summary: Castle Fragsburg was a fine dinning stronghold in recent years. Located on 750m height above Meran it offered best al fresco terace dining with exquisite food and sophisticated wine selection. This is past. Today it is overpriced wirh non inspired cooking and non attentive service. If you you want fine dinning with a view select Miromonti in Hafling or... More

The view here alone would make this a must visit restaurant- and then add to that a Michelin Starred chef and most interesting wine list together with flawless service. The set menus are great.

We were very lucky to have made a reservation for this incredible restaurant during the Merano Wine Festival. The evening we went was a fixed priced party menu. There was champagne flowing, live music, open kitchen and wine makers present. Everything was served by the waiters who came out of the kitchen with delicious small appetizers. The location is absolutely... More

A once-in-a-lifetime dining experience ... The staff catered to our dietary preferences and still made the meal one of the best we have ever had ... The ambiance and views from the restaurant are simply stunning ... I am not exaggerating when I say our meal there was one of the best we have ever had.

We had the five course dinner menu four evenings - included in your room rate. A different menu each evening. Superb and innovative food. If you want you can replace any of the five courses on the...

Description
THE FINE ART OF TRUE PLEASURE "Nourish the body well so that the soul will want to reside there" is a saying apocryphally attributed to Winston Churchill. He would have truly loved it here, as we cook nourishing and refined gourmet cuisine in the finest sense of the word. A defiant fusion of hearty Alpine fair and Mediterranean opulence. In our gourmet restaurant, we love to amaze and astonish our guests. No matter how many times we step out onto our glass loggia and look out over the parapet of the panorama terrace at the stunning, cinematic views of Merano, we always find something new to marvel at in the ravishingly beautiful natural surroundings. There couldn't be a more ideal setting for the exquisite dishes prepared by our head chef Christoph Terschan. A culinary virtuoso, Christoph fuses the many facets of regional cuisine with the memorable delicacies he has encountered in far-away lands in the course of his career. These reinterpretations make for immensely rich and creative food. Whether it's an agreeable lunch you partake of, or a sumptuous gourmet dinner, you will invariably have a sense of savoring life to the full. The sublime cuisine is of course rounded off by impeccable yet affectionate service and the excellent advice of our sommelier when choosing from the fine wines in our cellar.
