Restaurant Seespitz’s cuisine

Following chef Thomas Gruber’s love of slow food, he and his team only work with seasonal products that can be sourced within a radius of 150 kilometers. This makes for a sustainable and uncomplicated cuisine, with fresh and hand-picked ingredients. Expect a variety of Carinthian tastes and smaller portions that are meant to be shared. The menu is beautifully complemented by excellent wines from the Alpe-Adria region. Insider tip: for an unforgettable experience, enjoy your aperitif in the rocking chair in the lounge, your courses on the lakeside terrace, and your digestif on the hotel's own motorboat (with sunset view).
