Fodor's Review

Consistently ranked as one of the top restaurants in Austria, the "Dovecote" is a rambling, elegantly restored 19th-century farmhouse 5 km (3 miles) from Eisenstadt in the village of Schützen. Owner–chef Walter Eselböck and his wife, Evelyne, have created a series of strikingly beautiful dining rooms. The seasonally changing menu has featured dishes such as saddle of lamb with mangold blossoms and asparagus in saffron sauce. A variety of packages pair multiple courses with wines; some also include an overnight stay in the connected hotel. The former stables and outbuildings have been converted to 12 luxurious, unique bedrooms with wooden beams and cathedral ceilings.
