We pride ourselves on our dessert buffet (Austrian sweet dishes, apricot dumplings, pancakes, chocolate mousse, homemade chocolates ...) and enjoy buffets with Gastein delicacies like roast pork with dumplings, Leberkäse, a chestnut beer as an aperitif and to conclude a brandy etc. from the liquor cart. In addition, there is an international buffet of appetizers four times a week with salmon, seafood, roast beef and more - simply a feast!
