Waldviertlerhof was an accidental choice. The plan was to revisit the yesteryear’s winner, Silberwirt. Unfortunately, their goose was by prior reservation only, and in the search of an alternative, Waldviertlerhof was the closest option.

Good thing first. The waiter at Waldviertlerhof was very helpful finding a table and checking with the cook whether a goose without a pre-reservation was possible. Luckily, it was.

The question is, would a pre-reserved goose have tasted differently? I bet it would not, since the one I ate was flawed beyond salvation. It might have looked like a goose, but the meat could have been anything: from turkey to chicken to a very small ostrich or an unbelievably huge colibri. My guess is that the bird had been over-boiled or kept aside for too long. Combine the lack of goose taste with extremely generic dumplings and cabbage, and the result was uninspiring: edible, but not bringing any satisfaction.

The only interesting thing about Waldviertlerhof is that the building it is located in has apartments on its upper floors, and the only way to access these apartments is through the restaurant. If you have never seen mailboxes next to a restaurant’s toilets, you can find them here.
