The Le Gourmet – „excellent“ taste


Comment by the MICHELIN inspectors about the Le Gourmet

Don't be fooled by the almost opulent, historic and elegant interior of the restaurant: Mario Sauer cooks fine, creative dishes from a range of excellent products - a successful contrast to fine fabrics, the sandstone walls, the beautiful green tiled stove ... friendly and trained service ...
