We had dinner at Averau. We parked the car and took the lift and then snowcat. Very nice experience to see the Cinque Torri from the snowcat.
We had nice local ravioli and a nice bison steak. We couldn't drink too much so we didn't really explore the wine list. The ambience is lovely with Sandro, the owner, always around the tables and the wife in the kitchen. Probably a bit expensive as you have to pay the snowcat who is waiting for you to bring you down to the car park but it's worth it.
We will be back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Paola and Sandrone take turns at cooking, and are well known for their extremely refined cuisine, to be enjoyed on their wide terrace with its incredible view of the Civetta and the Marmolada and is easy to reach on foot, on skis (Lagazuoi 5 Torri ski area) or by taking the Giau chair lift; it is at the hub of many excursions and routes for skiers and is a popular stop along the Alta Via No. 1. But if you're looking for a touch of romanticism, you can enjoy a dinner in one of the refuges, going up on a motor sledge and with a nocturnal descent. There is the possibility to stay overnight. After extensive renovations, the Averau refuge re-opens with a brand new mansard offering delightful double bedrooms in the loft with views to the Civetta and the Marmolada, or to the Tofana di Rozes. For groups, the refuge offers dormitory style rooms with 6 or 10 beds. ... more less
