Fish restaurant & café in the Ahrntal / Valle Aurina: lunch, picnic, dinner & more

Your new favourite spot

Holiday feeling.
The sunbeams dance on the shimmery surface of the lake, with the fish below.
Summer rain drops fall rhythmically onto the lake, creating a calming music.

Happy moments.
Linger on the covered terrace and enjoy your breakfast. Lean back.
Walk barefoot on the lawn, dip your feet into the stream and just relax.

Enjoy the relaxation.

Can you resist our ice-cream sundaes?

We don’t know, we have never tried, but it would be a shame! Our house-made ice cream (also lactose free) is available in many different flavours and is made with fresh seasonable fruit and delicious toppings, and are perfectly presented, such as our “Bienchen” sundae in a chocolate cup, etc.
