Restaurant Apicius

Restaurant Apicius is known as one of the region’s culinary highlights. Situated in the German town Bad Zwischenahn, Apicius boasts a cozy, upscale interior. A superb wine list complements the restaurant's classically rooted, well-balanced cuisine. The restaurant uses some of its own produce from its garden, together with regional ingredients.
