“Chef Niederkofler, known to one and all as Norbert, creates superb Alpine cuisine flavouring his dishes with typical ingredients from the region such as mountain pine, juniper, flowers and spices which he personally sources from local producers.
His cuisine is a triumph of colour and flavour, as well as sophisticated techniques which more than justify his place among Michelin star-holders!” -Michelin Guide
