I went to a few Michelin starred restaurants in the past. Going to a 3 star today, i was expecting a reminder of what perfection is. And i got it all right. On all levels

First the menu - the chef is Christian Jürgens, his specialty is a special potato dish with truffel. So we got this special truffel menu, with the king dish, the Cube (see picture). Everything in this menu was very fine art to the finest level, from the amuse bouche to the latest patisserie. The progression of dishes to the main one was very well built, wine / food associations was perfect.

And then all the side things that made a 3 star restaurant: the pacing was perfect, the bread was refreshed at will and kept warm, service was high class without being heavy, wine was at perfect temperature, chairs were comfy... nothing to add really.

Now obviously you have to be ready to pay for it : 770 euros for 2, and we took only wine for one :)

So i wouldn't go there more than once every 3 years, otherwise I'd be spoiled. But this is definitely my new and latest definition of perfection. At a perfect price of course !

In Rotach Egern, the Ueberfahrt Hotel and fine dining restaurant are the upscale standard

The staff and presentations are competent but not inspired or memorable. Physical environment is exceptional, inside and out

Wine list excellent and a bit pricey

Choose a room with a porch or balcony on the hill side (quieter with pastoral views)

Breakfast is excellent, dinner more by formula. Increasing use of seasonal and local ingredients a plus. A walk around the lake takes a few hours.

Having dined at many other Michelin Star restaurants around the world, from a culinary perspective, this is one of the best. I almost feel guilty rating it Very Good. An evening at Restaurant Ueberfahrt is however, only for discriminating "foodies". The cuisine is unique and the service world class. As Americans, we occasionally have challenges slowing down and enjoying special events like an evening at the Ueberfahrt. Here are my comments-- the multicourse all-evening event is something to understand upfront. With an experience like this, it may be helpful to educate guests in advance before they invest. The four hour experience started at 7:00 pm and we departed the restaurant at 11:15 pm. The staff is trained not to pace the courses according to the requests of the guests, but to stretch out the courses with 40 minute intervals between each course. While we were prepared for the pre-fix, multi course menu, the extra "up charges" for caviar that was part of the menu combined with the champagne by the glass to start the experience made for an evening that was one of the most pricey in my lifetime for two people. That said and while a surprise, this was a once in a lifetime experience.
