Our well-known restaurant offers fresh, regional and seasonal products, which are partly grown in the garden of the senior boss Leopold Pfeffel. The food in the Gartenhotel & Weingut Pfeffel should be “Healthy and delicious” – so the senior boss is always saying. More than 2000m² of vegetable (tomatoes, courgettes, salad, etc.) and herbs (parsley, chive etc.) garden are farmed by the head of the family. Depending on the seasons our kitchen is serving local specialities and haute cuisine.


Fruits are cultivated as well in Pfeffel’s garden world. The flagship of the Wachau valley the “ Marille – apricot” is processed in various delights. Next to our rich variety of courses you will find noble wine drops from the own vineyard as well as wines from the surrounding areas.
