The chef here learned his trade at Munich's much-vaunted Königshof. Much of the meat here is organic; ask the ever-charming staff for information. The creamy asparagus risotto is a real treat for lunch, while the duck with ratatouille and potato-celery gratin is a highlight of the evening menu. Though the restaurant is small, it deliberately has a front-room feel, with red velvetlike upholstery complementing the wooden ceiling and walls that survived the recent renovation.
The small bar is also terrific. Hotel Lux is also a hotel with 17 rooms (€149), free Wi-Fi, and simply furnished rooms. Except for the top floor Ponyhof room, designed by Hans Langner, who is famous for his bird depictions. This extraordinary blue, bird-filled room is not to everyone's taste, but good fun for a night or two.
