Can anybody calculate the monetary equivalent for the tremendous joy of spending a super harmonic evening with friends in a beautiful and friendly place and being surprised with lots of the most exciting haute-cuisine creations to be found on this planet? Go and book a table at Ophelia. Choose the menue (you'll get twice the number of the ordered courses),... More

A covered balcony overlooking Bodensee provides a lovely setting. Excellent amuse bouches presented by the chef himself included a melting, beautifully flavored, glazed cube of eel, but a mini pulled-pork bun seemed rustic, in comparison. A perfectly cooked piece of turbot whose succulence was accentuated by an inspired garnish of thinly sliced, lightly cooked, bone marrow; and a langoustine dish,... More

I've been to the best restaurants around the world and very few deserved my highest praise: after a meal like that you have to knell and pray! Excellent service and the best food you can get.

Ophelia plays in a league of its own. We discovered it three years ago and visit two or three times a year for special occasions. More would get you addicted. Dirk Hoberg and team love their profession. The service is charming, individual, never stiff or arrogant, with a slight twinkle that one should never take oneself too serious. Role modeled... More

Had the opportunity to have the best meal of my life at this 2 star Michelin restaurant on beautiful Lake Konstanz. The service was exquisite with wonderful wines paired with a four course meal of foie gras, pike, the best venison that I have ever had...very tender tenderloin and outstanding desserts... Finished off with a wonderful walk next to the... More

This chef is amazingly creative, both in presentation and in combination of flavors! WE ate here at the end of our cycling trip and in celebration of an anniversary. It is easy to see why he has 2 Michelin stars! There is a choice of tasting menu with your selection of courses, lots of flexibility and they will meet any... More

One of the best restaurants I have ever been. Very creative in a positive way - a lot of little dishes between the "normal" courses. Excellent wine pairing from the somelier.

Excellent experience. Not cheap, but worth the detour. Amuse-bouche: a collection of six meticulously prepared bites. Delicious!
