    Szombathely Warnings and Dangers

    Lulu took us for a tour in his automobile. His car runs on Benzine and has complicated levers to control the mixture. He drove very fast, and talked even faster, pointing out many interesting sights that I have no idea about. So fasten your safety belt and hang on.

    ...that is its Baroque church of St Gotthard of the former Cistercian monastery, large historic building in centre of town accompanied by simple and small park with large trees, just to make it perfect ground for meetings - visiting church for Sunday masses or Saturday weddings and ceremonies... or for those wishing to come just to see it.

    For Raba river valley this building is the most important Baroque architecture, built between 1748 - 1765 according to plans of Fraz Anton Pilgram from Austria; only fragments of Romanesque architecture of previous monastery church from 12th century remained in vicinity. It is building abundant in detail on its pilastered facades, magnificient bell tower as well as inside, especially the high altar, columned walls and ceiling with rich painting and pilaster- do take a trip to this remote town near Austrian and near Slovenian border just for these looks.
    It's worth!

    our meal here with dodolle 4 more images

    by picek Updated May 2, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We had very nice meal here once during our little trip to our neighbors. First we stoped at one place next to lake, but it was closed. Then we drove further and we saw wooden sign for this restaurant in the edge of village, and decided to try our luck here. It was sunday, not good weather and cold, so we sat inside. I belive summers will be full here, it's quiet place, with fish pond, trees and a few pony horses.

    Favorite Dish: I decided to go for local dodolle (sorry, I cannot use dots over the letters) with sour cream. And a local fish from the lake, grilled one. My man had usual kalamari & french fries since he almost always have that whenever he goes - with more and less success - depends how they're made.
    I also decided to have pickled paprikas, which are very nice here in Hungary and I am always satisfied with them. Of course, this is easy and refreshing food to eat, no big art to prepare but nice, especially spicy ones.
    Man said kalamari were very nice, better than in most places - good to know if you like that and he's very picky with that.

    Minde dodolle were superb, I have really enjoyed them (sour cream wasn't really needed) and shared with hubby, and guess what, he now loves dodolle finally, haha. For those who don't know: dodolle is made of broken potato mixed with flour and then fried with onion.

    Okay, to keep that long story short, fish was great, everything what we have tried was nice... very nice... the only meat we can eat is fish and seafood (not me, that) and I think they really became famous with visitors from Slovenia and Austria since they appreciate good Hungarian food (not that seafood is Hungarian, but most of things on menu is Hungarian and Middle European at least).

    It is pleasant house to visit and I shall return someday in summer.

    Smoking is allowed in some parts of the restaurant.
