Discover Restaurants offering the best Central European food in Merano, Province of South Tyrol, Italy. Just a few miles south of the Austrian border, Merano (also called Meran) is an old spa town. About half the residents here speak German, the other half Italian. Take a dip in one of the thermal baths, or try Merano’s famous “grape cure” by imbibing - what else? - lots of grapes. The South Tyrol Museum of Tourism is located in Trauttmansdorff Castle, the former holiday pad of Austria’s Empress Elisabeth.

Restaurant close to the brewery has a big and well attended terrace. They have a good beer, varied and affordable wine card and rather extensive menu. Food is very Austrian, with a lot of meat. It's okay but not very special and not very cheap. Staff is efficient but they missed the personal touch. Food was there, shortly after we ordered it. At the end of the dinner the waiter offered a drink from the house. Good parking facilities.

The restaurant is situated on top of a mountain. The view in front is marvelous. The interior is very nice too. The restaurant serves local cuisine. I have been there several times and have never been disappointed. The service is very friendly and efficient too. I am quite often in this region. Beside the luferkeller in riffian this is my favorite place around Meran.

Spectacular. Memorable. Unique. The list of words that describe the view of our restaurant is long. But one thing is clear: there is no equal. Like a rare gem, the glazed Panorama Restaurant is enthroned high on the rocks just beside the quiet forest. Not

Well, who would not be impressed with the view from this great restaurant. Merano and its surrounding mountains seem to be at your feet. We eat on the sun kissed Terrence enjoying a lovely early autumn lunch.Our food was delicate and very tasty. I had the troffiette with mushrooms and cheese and my partner the pasta with veal ragout and truffles. The Apfestrudel desert with homemade vanilla ice cream was lovely too. Great wine selection by the glass. It is not a cheap eat, but it is well worth it.

Laubenkeller

Reviewed By Peter S

This place serves decent food in an authentic Tyrolean setting. It is, however, quite expensive for what it is.....a glass of wine costs double what you would normally pay in a smart bar.The answer is probably that the restaurant is located off the busiest shopping street and is a perfect tourist trap. I noticed that lots of tables were 'reserved' but in reality they were not.....the waiter just picked up the sign and asked us to seat ourselves.The next time I am in Merano it is unlikely I would eat here again unless there were no other options for some odd reason

A welcome place from the bustling and touristic via Portici. The spaghetti (al dente!) and the mussels (cozze) were delicious, also the tomato, feta (with some other ingredients) salad was nicely presented and prepared! Service was courteous and friendly! - a very positive surprise were the washrooms/toilets!

Reviewed By miroslavm81

During our return to Merano in 2019 Forsterbrau restaurant once again played a key role in our great time that we had. Visiting and eating in the restaurant is all around great experience. Service is excellent. All staff move around like well oiled machine, yet machine with a nice human touch and care.The food here is spot on. God combination of the classic Tyrolean and Italian cuisine, always with a slight twist as the seasonal ingredience allow. However all we tasted here was VERY GOOD. Can't wait to visit some time in the future. Sure there wil be next time.

We ate here in late summer and sat outside in the beautiful gardens. The food is innovative Italian cuisine which has obviously been prepared with care and thought using the best ingredients. We started out with a chickpea soup and grilled peppers and followed with crespelle (like crêpes) made from chestnut flour and stuffed with pumpkin and ricotta. The wine selection is good with lots of local choices. The service was rather slow but that wasn't much of a problem as we were relaxing in the beautiful surroundings!

Right in the middle of the Lauben pedestrian area and ideally placed for lunch.Nice table, under a nice big umbrella to keep the sun off.Staff always happy and smiling, with a very professional attitude. Orders taken, drinks on table, waiting for food.Have you ever had one of those meals where the smile on your face keeps getting bigger with every mouthful, because that is what I had.Schnitzel (Veal) potatoes and Prieselbeer Sauce (cranberry). Bit of a local delicacy.Very good food, very tasty and just the right size portion. I could easily have made myself look a pig and have gone back for more.Good local food is always nice to see on the menu, and this was no exception. A real go to place if you like good hearty, not messed with food.
