Gourmet Restaurant Hit List

Going out for a romantic meal with that someone special is never a bad idea, however, knowing where to go to enjoy a meal that is just that little bit more special is handy at any time of year. So here is my gourmet recommendations for around Vorarlberg.

Restaurant Guthguth_388


With the owner and chef’s objective being to ensure he offers you an exceptional experience, you cannot really ask for more. Along with fantastic service, you will experience amazingly creative and unique dishes (from red thai curry with monkfish, to ox fillet steak) served in a relaxed environment, either inside in the restaurant, or as the weather heats up in their garden lounge, and let’s face it, any restaurant where you are greeted by a wall of wine gets my tick of approval.


Restaurant Mangoldcsm_mangold-7_cd0125c9ce


This family run restaurant specialises in traditional recipes, but utilises modern cooking methods, showcasing hearty Austrian cuisine in a modern lighter form. They have either a set or standard menu allowing you to sample until your hearts content or focus on one special dish, the choice is yours. The restaurant is broken up into various different rooms keeping the atmosphere intimate and cozy.

Lech has an array of great restaurants to choose from but here at Fux you actually have a choice of cuisines, as it is separated into two restaurants, Asian fusion or steakhouse. Along with a wine shop your every need is catered for. They even have a private dining room for that extra special event where you will be served a gourmet six course meal in front of the fireplace.


Restaurant Lanz



It may not exactly be in Vorarlberg, but its just a short hop over the border, so one to consider. This is fine dining for gourmet lovers, with a focus on fish, crayfish and meat. They even host a crayfish night, if that tickles your fancy. You could be fooled into thinking this was just another Gasthaus by the looks of the exterior, but looks can be deceiving. The restaurant is split into three elegantly styled rooms, offering both ambiance and high quality food, as well as a famous (and award winning) German chef, Anton Lanz .


FuexlRestaurant Füxl


Located in the heart of Bregenz you can snuggle up in winter in their traditional restaurant, enjoy a bit of culture in their light and airy wintergarden surrounded by artwork and in summer hide away in their garden.

Whereever you choose to enjoy your meal, Füxl will wine and dine you with seasonal offerings to delight both your eyes and your stomach.

They host a range of events throughout the year with special guests, providing you with one off experiences you are sure to never forget.




Gasthof Hirschen


This hotel is over 250 years old, however your experience here will be anything but old fashioned. Whether you choose to visit for dinner or stay for the weekend, you are sure to be in for a treat. In beautiful surroundings you can enjoy their Gault Millau award-winning cuisine (89 points in the Falstaff 2014) which focuses on Austrian cuisine and wines from the wine cellar of Franz

Fetz. Their gourmet menu changes daily highlighting regional delicacies.


Hotel Post-  Irma restaurant


If rest and relaxation, paired with amazing food sounds like a match made in heaven then a visit to this Spa and Wellness Hotel is a must.

The restaurant Irma has been recognised with 2 Gault Millau toques. Their ingredients are home-grown, organic, and fresh, taking pride in selecting the best seasonal produce from around the region, whilst maintaining an unpretentious à la carte menu. Offering over 450 different wines, I would definitely have to book a room, and to top it off they even have a dedicated “wine master” (now I know my next job title if I ever want a career change).
