Gourmet food served at the award winning Restaurant and Hotel, Taubenkobel in Neusiedler See, Burgenland Austria.

The Taste Pilgrims

Nothing short of a foodie legend, Restaurant & Hotel Taubenkobel’s quirky 19th century Austrian country cottage is the iconic culinary destination of Austria - and beyond. Serious pilgrims of food flock from far reaches of the globe to this tiny gourmet hub of creative flavour. Named after the rickety dovecote in the back garden, Restaurant Taubenkobel is the true originator of farm-to-table eating, winning top marks in Gault Millau, Falstaff and Michelin, as well as being ranked one of Forbes’ 16 must-dine restaurants of 2016. This is a sanctuary of the simple life forged by sweet Pannonian goodness, where the humble is made wonderful. Chunky lime-washed walls play host to a culinary theatre of locally foraged herbs, a vegetable garden full of freshly picked organic bounty and heaps of creative imagination, the kind of which conjures up such intensely truthful flavours that can be found only here. Taubenkobel’s puritan simplicity sees the original cottage, stables and outhouses lend their rustic dna to beautifully frame the combo of boutique country chic and modern zeitgeist. Chalky white eggshell tones blend with stone walls while pockets of zingy floral colour blocks, inspired by the surrounding meadows, sing alongside vivid artworks and gallery installations, all igniting the beamed sloping ceilings of this old twisted house of food.
