We were ready for a snack after touring the abbey so we headed over to the restaurant. There were actually three places to eat at the abbey and we settled on having some cake and ice cream on the terrace of the hotel rather than sit inside a restaurant. The view was beautiful as it overlooked the lake and some wonderful gardens.
There were four of us and we had a variety of cakes and ice creams; all quite wonderful and refreshing. Our waiter could have been a bit friendlier; I guess he was having a bad day because he seemed this way to everyone (not just our table). But the treats were good and it was nice to sit and look at the view. The prices were a bit steep for ice cream and cake, but the restaurant was a more formal place compared to the other places to eat near the abbey.
On my next visit, I would probably not go here but will try another one of the restaurants simply because, although the location was spectacular, the service left us with a sour feeling.
This is the only sit-down restaurant on the premises (not counting the hotel which looks likw a place for guests and not tourists). It was clean, of good size (although there were many potential customers it was not overcrowded)with a moderate nimber of selections. Actually it should be called a cafeteria with many hot selections (American equivalent). The food was substantial German with boiled potatos with every plate (even with pasta and meat). I had read somewhere that it was overpriced, but this was not so. (Maybe they meant the hotel).
Favorite Dish: We were hungry and the others were glad to get whatever they considered "edible". I ordered weisswurst and sauerkraut and a "local" beer (but I think not)
amazingly quiet, wonderful atmosphere..the Name says it all.......Forest Peace
Favorite Dish: the local food is good, all the meateaters and seafoodlovers alike.
german deserts are not the worst in the world and a german coffee is strong and you can have it as sweet as you like
