She says I shouldn't review this restaurant, because she knows how disappointing I found it. From the stale bread, to the Wienerschnitzel which tasted like it was cooked in a dishwasher, to the staff who were too intrusive till I said the meal was only "OK", and then disappeared. Not a good experience.

We found this wonderful place strangely placed just off a shopping street and down a small alley. Staff didn't speak a lot of English but we soon ordered a stein and a glass of beer. Barman kindly helped me to the table with the beer as my wife had popped to the bathroom. We sat in the restaurant area and... More

The ambience in Laubenkeller is very nice. The interior reflects the area you are spending your time in, Südtirol. You find various dishes but most important for us was that they serve local dishes which are very yummy. The waiter we had (an older man) was fabulous. Very friendly and funny. Nice place to go if you want to try... More

We had dinner in this typical tirolean restaurant. Very nice frescoes decorate the walls. Food was nothing special, but prices were honest and service was quick.

I enjoyed the food. But I remember the service best. I went with my three young children and sat in the back of the restraunt. The older waiter(or maybe owner) came and talked with my children and was very accommodating to their little demands for bread, straws, more napkins, etc. Super helpful. The decor (or I should say the paintings)... More

We always finish our holiday in Moran with a visit to the Laubenkeller. The food is always fantastic, the staff are very friendly and we really enjoy each visit. It is, however, quite hard to just come in and get a table because they are usually fully booked so make sure that you book well in advance. Otherwise, each visit... More

Notwithstanding the rather mixed reviews we tried this place as We were keen to continue our tasting of local cuisine. We had the steak which was very good served with onions and potatoes. Unfortunately the apple strudel was finished, although we saw the generous helpings being served earlier. Some of the comments on the service in the other reviews may... More

Lovely place with great value for money local food. Don't be discouraged by the somewhat grumpy features of the senior waiter; he's an old school professional who puts his clients first. I went twice, loved it both times.
