Review on Austrian Restaurant
Austrian 'burgerliche kuche' (wholesome home-cooked food) is the unlikely proposition at this family-run restaurant nestling at the bottom of enchanting Sychnant Pass (between Conwy and Penmaenmawr). Welsh-born Judith Pigler runs things out front, while Fredi (a native of Baden) mans the stoves.
The evening menu is a roll-call of authentic dishes with authentic names: gulaschuppe, schweinsbraten (roast loin of pork seasoned with caraway and garlic) and rehragout (a rich ragoût of diced venison with a traditional bread dumpling and cranberry sauce) - not forgetting Wiener schnitzel and homemade apple strudel.
Alternatively head for the Edelwiess Stube, a cosy, pine-clad room where you can tuck into bratwurst with sauerkraut, frankfurters with 'saft' (homemade paprika 'gravy') and other light dishes. To drink there are Austrian and German beers, as well as Schnapps and some quaffable wines.
