The view from the terrace at Saxifraga is really worth the (short) climb up the Tappeiner Weg. And although you still get the buzz coming up from Merano, a very busy town, it's all below you and you can sit and enjoy the view without...More

Such a beautiful building and gorgeous view. Sitting on the terrace and just admiring the Etschtal on a sunny day is a must. For my liking, prices are bit too steep.....Wine and prosecco should be served with nibbling etc too

Found Saxifragra as a very welcome oasis on a day that turned out much warmer than we expected. A friendly, comfortable oasis with a great view and the occasional cooling breeze. Very nice. Food was good too: I had a (variation on a) Caprese salad,...More

The Saxifraga lies above Meran on the Tappeinerweg, a famous promenade that already my great grandparents walked on. The food is authentic in a nice atmosphere. It has a beautiful view.

Walking along the Tappeinerweg high over Meran is spectacular in itself...then to find such a wonderful place for a break and lunch is special. Excellent food, sitting out on the terrace looking around,the Dolomites and other mountain ranges, everywhere is amazing. Service and atmosphere of...More

A beautiful, old building with an amazing view over Merano and the valley. It would be the perfect place for a light lunch or a drink. Sadly it is grossly overpriced. Admittedly I have only had a tea, but at over 5 Euro, I thought...More

Yeah, it is a bit of a climb, but Saxifraga is very much worth the effort. With a seasonal menu that changes frequently, and a focus on local food producers, it'd be hard to go wrong. And then there are the views over Merano and...More
