What an absolute jewel of a hotel😍 I honestly cannot rave highly enough about the staff, service, helpfulness of manager and beautiful standard of accommodation. One of many nights from our current road trip round Europe but most certainly one that I will not forget in a hurry. Credit were credit's due👍👍👍

When you go to a top level restaurant you should expect friendly greetings, fulfillment of your reservation, a focused menu, high quality wine list, and efficient service. Hotel Hofgarten delivered on all of these fronts and some. We were met and seated promptly at a reserved table. Menu provided a well rounded selection from top to bottom. Wine list was... More

This place drew us in with their beautiful outdoor decor and fire lanterns. The inside dining area was charming, and the open kitchen design was mesmerizing. The food was elegant in its preparation, smell and taste. The service was impeccable. I would definitely recommend this hidden gem.

I thought the hotel was nice. But for me the highlight was the staff. They were all friendly and accommodating. This is definitely not a "cookie cutter" hotel. There seems to be quite a difference between the rooms. The elevator in this hotel only goes up to the second floor. But the rooms go up to the fourth floor. That... More

We were staying at Hotel Hofgarten and ate in the restaurant one night. If you stay at the hotel, a very nice, expansive breakfast is included. The staff are super friendly and attentive. Despite it raining on and off and wrestling a little bit with the canopy, we had an amazing meal. The meat and fish dishes were fresh and... More

Two excellent meals. Lamb shank with polenta was cooked to perfection....almost falling off the bone. Trout and gnocchi was also a hit as the gnocchi was just right. The back room was lovely this time of year. The staff was attentive and warm.

We sat outdoors and enjoyed a fabulous lunch here. I had the platter with wild boar toasted walnut bread, and Dallwiler goat cheese. It was the best goat cheese I've ever had.

Set out one night 'to see where we could find to eat'.Came across this restaurant, which seemed to have a good choice menu. Were offered to be seated 'in the romantic area' - which did look very nice - or garden area with the open kitchen.Chose the latter as we do quite like watching chefs at work. Very friendly atmosphere... More

I came here with my four teenagers which was recommended by my hotel. However, it is not what I would call a family friendly type of restaurant, as this is pretty expensive. I was prepared for expensive but it was the food that turned my daughter's birthday night dinner a little flat, that we didn't stay for dessert and ended... More

Had dinner at Hofgarten in a cozy ambiance. Perfect outdoor settings covered by the tempting meals and drinks. Lamb fillet and veal were delicious. Menu has well selected and slightly varied specialties. We will definitely come back.
