We really love the creative dishes by Marcus & team. My favourite was the celeriac with truffles. I don't particularly like any of the two ingredients but the combination was amazing. The only thing I would drop is the amphora white wine, despite the fact...More

“The Steinhalle restaurant is a place where we cook our favourite dishes and have fun doing so. We offer the food and drink we would love to have every day. The food at the Steinhalle restaurant is tasty, the service is very personal and the atmosphere dynamic.” That is how the chef, Markus Arnold, describes what he has on offer. The dual gastronomic concept caters to the individual requirements of each guest; lunches are quick, fresh and healthy seasonal dishes, that can also be taken away. In the evening, the Steinhalle restaurant has a winning combination of casual dining and the personal touch by the chef, Markus Arnold.
