Restaurant Schlosshotel - gourmet
The Schlosshotel Fiss is one of the most impressive half-board options in Tirol. You will enjoy the finest comfort, service and standards in a naturally congenial surrounding. Fiss is a municipality in the Landeck district in the Austrian state of Tirol and very famous for both summer and winter holidays.
Upon arriving at the five star family Schlosshotel the friendly staff dressed in traditional Dirndl costumes will welcome you and you will feel that this is not the typical luxury hotel but a warm combination of luxury and family charm. There are several good hotels in this region, but the combination of an outstanding half-board menu and afternoon snack buffet makes Schlosshotel unique. You can discover more about this beautiful hotel in our hotel section.
A dining experience in the Schlosshotel always starts with a stop in the central hotel bar where Bar Manager Dominic Maschinsky somehow knows everyone’s favourites. Enjoy one of the homemade lemonades, the special Schlosshotel Fiss SHF gin or one of the creative cocktails like Sake cocktails or a smoked Cohiba rum cocktail. Enjoy a Schlosshotel premium afternoon tea or taste from the extended Tyrolean afternoon snack buffet which is also part of the half-board offerings from the five star Schlosshotel. With this lunch snack buffet (and barbecues when weather permits), the half-board formula can actually be considered an extended full-board option!
Tirol’s authentic charm and the elegant ambience of the area come together in the different areas of the Schlosshotel restaurant. The Schlosshotel Fiss offers young gourmets a wide variety of dishes at the buffet before joining the evening activities for kids. The dining area is split into various sections so the more intimate diners will enjoy a personalised service in the winter garden part of the restaurant.
Executive Chef Christoph Geschwendtner gained experience in various restaurants in the US. He worked with Heston Blumenthal in the Fat Duck in England and was part of the Taubenkobel team in Burgenland. In the Schlosshotel Fiss he interprets regional cuisine with culinary refinement. His half-board menu consists out of four courses and changes daily. In all dishes the chef and the over 30 heads kitchen team focus on regionality and as much as possible local produce. Only fresh products enter the kitchen and convenience food is banned throughout the hotel. Fine dining lovers can even ask for an extended tasting menu in which Executive Chef Geschwendtner will emphasise even more on refined dishes inspired by the Tyrolean heritage. Start with a delicious little stew of Guinea fowl with white truffle polenta, ruccola cream, organic egg yolk and béarnaise sauce or a superb combination of river prawns with fresh peas and a cream of green peas. One of the chef’s signature main courses is the crispy roasted breast from local farmer’s duck with gyoza filled with duck, a herb crumble, potato dumpling, peach and flower vegetables.
Sommelier and Restaurant Manager Christian Heinisch will show you his new and beautiful wine cabinets inside the restaurant with great pleasure. The wine list with more than 500 references focuses on Austrian wines with some specialties from Austrian winegrowers. Sommelier Christian also selected some top international wines like Pingus and Chateau Petrus, some rare bottles from the Ornellaia Vendemmia d'Artista Collection and numerous Manfred Krankl wines.
The Schlosshotel Fiss is a must visit gourmet hotel in Austria. Its excellent location, friendly staff and variety in activities are combined with a true gourmet experience. Executive Chef Christoph Geschwendtner’s delicious menus are inspired by daily market offerings and are continuously changing with the seasons. The setting is authentic and appeals to a wide audience who love comfort, Tirol excellence and terroir.
