In the stylishly furnished restaurant, on the large sun terrace for warm summer days and mild summer evenings, or in one of our two wine parlors for romantic hours or small celebrations. We pamper not only our house guests, but also guests from near and far with our à la carte menu with culinary delicacies.

Organic products from the Wachau

It should be “healthy and good”, the food in the Gartenhotel & Weingut Pfeffel Dürnstein. The landlord grows vegetables he has grown himself on over 2,000 m². “Vegetables (from tomatoes to zucchini to lettuce) and herbs (parsley, chives, etc.) are fresh from our garden!”, Says the boss of the house.It is fertilized with organic fertilizer from the house’s own chickens and goats; Chickens, which also provide the hotel with all the fresh eggs it needs every day. Fresh goat milk is available every morning at the breakfast buffet.

Pfeffel winery

In addition to the herb and vegetable gardens, we also grow fruit. The flagship of the Wachau “the apricot” is processed into brandies in-house. In addition, there is also home-made wine and sparkling wine from the in-house winery, as well as honey from our own beekeeping.In addition to our extensive range of dishes, you will find selected drops from our own winery as well as a good selection of special wines from the Wachau and the surrounding regions in our wine menu.

TIP: For special hours we offer a 7-course tasting menu with accompanying wines from the in-house winery. The choice of dishes is regionally and seasonally oriented and also includes various delicacies from the in-house small farm.

You can come to the breakfast buffet between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m., after which we serve a simplified breakfast until 12 noon. We also offer small delicacies all day long, as well as cakes, coffee and ice cream specialties. In the evening from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. we will cook a gourmet menu of your choice for you – we look forward to your table reservation.
