Christians Restaurant

Christians Restaurant

Chef Christian F. Grainer has been running his parents’ inn, Gasthof Grainer, since 1990. Dating back to the sixteenth century, this characteristic building is home to Christian’s gourmet restaurant. Here, the chef cooks up fresh regional dishes that attract gourmets from far and wide. It’s surely no surprise that his cooking has been awarded with a coveted Michelin star for over a decade now. In addition, Christians Restaurant has received 16 Gault Millau points and 7 pans from Gusto. You can wine and dine in one of the traditionally decorated dining rooms, including the beautiful ballroom with crystal chandeliers. During summer you can also enjoy Christian’s culinary delights on the terrace, where you’re romantically surrounded by chestnut trees.

Christian’s cuisine

Alpine tradition merged with modern gastronomy: that’s chef Christian F. Grainer’s secret ingredient. By working with fresh and seasonal high-quality products from the region, he presents a new 3- to 6-course surprise menu every day. Two of chef Grainer’s first-class specialties include scallop with a cauliflower variation, and pikeperch with tomato lentils. For diners with a sweet tooth, the poppy seed balls with plum and sour cream ice cream are highly recommended. Next to the well-coordinated courses, you can enjoy the many treasures from the wine cellar at Christians Restaurant. The chef’s spouse, award-winning sommelière Christiane Grainer, will ensure you can enjoy a perfect food-and-wine-pairing.
