A warm late September day, beautiful surroundings, the friendliest of welcomes. The food here is excellent. I was lucky enough to sit in the pretty garden and spent a most relaxing hour or so enjoying my lovely meal. I will certainly visit again.

Restaurant locates on top of hill next to Marientrost basilica. Great local food with big portions and really nice staff. A bit pricy place.The view outside the restaurant is breathtaking.

We ate here and felt like we we at someone's private home. That is how good the food was! I only wish I had been more hungry!

It is also a hotel and is adjacent to Mariatrost basilica, Food was well prepared and enthusiastically served. At least one server... More

The Kirchenwirt restaurant that is located alongside the Mariatrost Basillica was an accidental find, not really noticable when you visit the Basillica but we were so glad we did spot the sign on the way home. The menu is interestingly varied and caters for all tastes, the meals that we ordered were exceptional, cooked to perfection. The service was also... More

Dinners were outstanding with lots of choices and excellent service. We especially enjoyed the venison stew, noodles with wild boletus, wiener schnitzel, strudel. Would love to go back for more.
