I was there now my third time and I was never disappointed! This traditional restaurant is excellent in his relaxed old school style. It’s authentic and true, the Housebeer is great and the food in traditional very good style and quality! Allways crowded and they deserve it. Go there ... Brandee recommends

Maria Loretto Restaurant

Reviewed By Rosamunde - Birmingham, England

We were staying nearby on the edge of the Wörthersee near Klagenfurt, and went to this restaurant two nights running. The setting is lovely, particularly as the lights come on in the evening - with beautiful effects on the water. Service was slightly quirky, but efficient. (Not sure why everyone was wearing red slippers!) Food was excellent. Amongst the dishes we sampled were ravioli stuffed with spinach, ravioli with pumpkin, sandling (local fresh-water fish) with asparagus risotto and prawns, Turkey schnitzel, Venetian fish pfanne with salad and creamed polenta, strawberries and ice cream, lemon sorbet with vodka, and pancakes with jam. (I would say that creamed polenta is no better than it sounds!)

No need to stand on decorum. This restaurant serves traditional Austrian fare in a traditional Austrian setting. The food is the best!! It looks like a beerhall, and its packed with locals!! Service is good and very friendly. Definitely will return here.

Weidenhof

Reviewed By Austriacus - Steiermark

We had lunch at “Weidenhof” on a Saturday. Although this large restaurant was almost full, there were so many waitresses around that we never had to wait for anything. All waitresses were dressed up in local costumes. This harmonized well with the furniture of the restaurant, which also bears resemblance to the traditional Alpine style, creating a cozy atmosphere. Despite this somewhat rustic look of the decoration, this is an elegant restaurant, not a mainstream village inn. Candles on the tables, cloth napkins and two types of spread along with a basket of bread served as an amuse gueule clearly indicate that “Weidenhof” strives to provide a high-class experience.
The menu is quite comprehensive and creative, but perhaps a bit too much leaning towards meat dishes, so that for vegetarians or those who prefer fish the choice is rather limited. We particularly liked that one may order a portion of reduced size of any main course, which is reflected on the bill by the deduction of a fixed amount. However, the normal portions are in general not excessively large, but of usual size. The dishes we ordered were served within a fairly short period of time and fully pleased all three of us. Of course, “Weidenhof” is not cheap. But for a restaurant of this standing the price level is reasonable and so it offers a good value for money.

My favorite coffee and snack on the photo. They have plenty of sandwiches, bagels, sweets, I also love the water with lemon/orange/cucumber, their tee, and the home made cakes that they often make.
Self-service breakfast on Saturdays looks amazing, haven't tried yet.
I wish there was Como in every town.
