That is appreciated well beyond the borders of the region. With their unique, high-level concept, head chef Peter Hagen-Wiest and his team were recently able to prove themselves to the strict jury of the ‘Feinschmecker’: The renowned specialist magazine awarded a title “Restaurant des Jahres (Restaurant of the Year)” to the 2* Michelin restaurant, located in the lighthouse of the 4* superior hotel Bell Rock.
“Few of the top restaurants in this country are so cosmopolitan and glamorous,” says editor-in-chief Deborah Gottlieb. Peter Hagen-Wiest inspires “with a tasty and wonderfully sensual modern kitchen. The friendly Austrian has conceived high-precision, contemporary classics in two menus: ‘Black Forest Cuisine’ with local ingredients and ‘Around the World’ with top international products. There can hardly be a better combination of both home and the wider world. The excellent, but by no means stiff, service under the direction of sommelier Marco Gerlach and the extensive selection of wines (450 items) ensure an outstanding overall experience,” continued Gottlieb.
Thomas Mack, managing partner of Europa-Park and, among other things, responsible for the catering department: “The award is a very special recognition and a great honour for us. From the very start, not everyone was convinced of the vision of opening a top restaurant in a theme park. I am all the more pleased, alongside everyone involved, that our efforts are paying off and that our success only proves that we made the right decision.”
