The Museumsgaststaette restaurant is found in an attractive old building in the main square of Zellerfeld; the interior is cosy and divided into smoking and non-smoking rooms (there was certainly no sign of anyone smoking in the non-smoking area during any of our four meals!). The restaurant in clearly popular with both locals and tourists, generating a friendly and buzzing atmosphere. Cuisine is described as 'German' and 'Croatian', but the menu is dominated by traditional German choices.
Front of house is run solely and charmingly by one waiter who dashes around making sure no table is neglected. Each main meal (prices from around 8 euros) includes a help yourself serving of the impressive salad buffet (German Rohkost variations, selection of beans and dressings), along with complimentary home-made bruschetta. The meals themselves are very generously portioned- the 'Hirtenteller' includes pork cutlet, a couple of Croatian pork concoctions, liver and feta cheese, along with home-made tzaziki and a fiery tomato salsa. For the less hungry, a range of main course salads (8 euros) or fresh fish (from 9 to 15 euros) are available, along with venison and wild boar (11,50-12,50). Each meal comes with an enormous helping of some variety of potatoes; however the waiter was very accommodating when we asked for substitutions.
Overall cost of a meal for two is exceptionally reasonable; we paid around 25-30 euros for main meals and drinks (including a delicious 'lieblich' Croatian red wine). The food is not fantastically complicated, but is freshly prepared using good quality ingredients. An excellent choice when eating out in Zellerfeld.
