Here is a place of compromises. It’s situated in as a remote and Alpine location as is possible in Lower Austria, yet is reachable with a car. It could have positioned itself as a quite authentic Almhütte, but decided to become a full-fledged restaurant with a long menu. It could have served a really wonderful Brettljause, but it didn’t.

What I got was some Speck, some reddish meat with fat (one day I’ll find out how it’s called), some Schweinsbraten and some Blutwurst. All of them were in slices, but they looked like slices freshly cut from something bigger, and not taken from a plastic pack. There was cheese too, and – highly surprisingly – not the standard tasteless Emmentaler sort, but some soft white cheese. It was quite tasteless, too, but different. I can imagine it even came from one of the cows walking in the vicinity, though it might be too much to ask. The rest was pretty typical: horseradish, salty cucumber, mustard out of a 10-liter bucket, a slice of a grayish bread and a Semmel (which should never belong to a Brettljause, I believe).

The location of the restaurant is quite nice in a remote way; even the mobile phone had no reception. Unfortunately, the wi-fi-based device the waitress used to take the order was malfunctioning too, making her quite nervous and thus destroying the serenity of the environment somewhat.

All in all, one more type of sausage would have pushed me towards a 5/10 rating. A bit more effort and love gone into the preparation and it could have even been 6/10. Alas, it did not happen.
