Best Restaurants in Konstanz?

Hey everyone, we currently live quite close to Konstanz and we wanted to take a day trip there. I've already tried the "all you can eat" Mandarin chinese buffet in the pedestrian zone by Lago (which BTW was the poorest selection, quality and service I've ever experienced at a buffet place). I saw a Subway and a few take away places in the Lago shopping center. Just wondering what your experiences are...maybe what your favorite restaurant is in Konstanz. Thanks and have a great weekend

Re: Best Restaurants in Konstanz?

I don't know the name, but I liked the atmosphere and service in one that seemed to specialise in Italian food - at the end of the pedestrain area, on the left just before going through the tunnel towards the lake (from memory).

Re: Best Restaurants in Konstanz?

I've been to Münsterhof twice. It's on the square by the cathedral at the end of the Altstadt shopping area. It's cheap and delicious. For 6.90 euros you get a two-course lunch of the day (Mittagsmenu). For starters you choose a salad or soup, and then select your main from a choice of two dishes. Great value.

Re: Best Restaurants in Konstanz?

our family loves the goldener sternen. http://www.goldener-sternen-konstanz.de/41324.html

very small intimate restaurant inside a hotel. The food is great, not too expensive, authentic German cuisine, and the waitstaff have always been very good, even with the kids!

Re: Best Restaurants in Konstanz?

An old favourite of mine in Konstanz is the Graf Zeppelin
http://www.hotel-graf-zeppelin.de/restaurant.html

and here the Cleopatra, which used to be near the railstation but a few years ago moved out of downtown
http://www.cleobar.de/restaurant.html

and here the Shamrock, right across from the railstation

Re: Best Restaurants in Konstanz?

Hafenhalle at the waterfront is always a guaranteed first class meal -At the higher end of the price range, but still much better value than anything this side of the border!

My 2 favourites are:

HEUBODEN

http://www.heuboden-kn.de/

Excellent meat up to XXL, great prices, laid back service - Family run, one chef and so the food can take a while, but it's always worth the wait. It's a ten minute drive away from the centre of Konstanz, so you'd need a map or public transport, not walking distance.

Filetsteak.........19,50€
Aus dem zartesten Teilstück vom jungen Rind 250g mit Kräuterbutter

T- Bone............26,00€
Zartes Filet und saftiges Roastbeef am T-Knochen, mit knusprigem Fettrand, 500g
mit Kräuterbutter


Add your veg or potatoes at around 3.50Euro and sauce for 3.00 and you've got a great 250g FILLET steak dinner for 30 francs!!

ZUR SCHWEIZER GRENZE (No website)

http://www.tripadvisor.de/Restaurant...rttemberg.html

Again, you'd need to drive here as it's just outside the centre, 5 mins drive direction Tägerwilen/Gottlieben (CH), right at the mainly unattended little border control.

Great family run restaurant with local produce, constantly changing seasonal specials and simply perfect food, every time i've been. Fantastic value and a good selection of local weins and beers too.

The game season right now I would especially recommend, it's brilliant and great value for money. Been a year since I was last there, but have eaten there at least ten times and from memory a large mixed game plate plus salad starter would be bewteen 20-25 Euro, again nothing compared to what we pay in CH.

The Indian restaurant that sits under the shadow of the catherdral is also very good.
Hope that helps!

Re: Best Restaurants in Konstanz?

Thanks to everyone for their reecommendations.we checked so many websites that we cannot recall which recommended what.....but we can say, Da Giuseppe is a very good, value-for-money dining venue.

http://www.restaurant-kritik.de/120576

We ordered pizza as antipasti and just looking at it, we knew it's the real deal (actually when we saw the roaring forno we knew) Light crispy crust.....and home made tomato sauce. Incredible. We got the quarttro formaggi and wow, upon biting into the gorgonzola we knew this place knows their pizza! No bull xxxxx!!

My partner ordered the Mare Monti. It was not exactly what we expected but whoa, delectable fish and prawns laid gently over mushrooms calamari etc and baked under foil? With enough parsley and olive oil to complete the act?...... My quite decent grilled calamari took a back seat.


All in all, a super meal for decent prices. Well worth the drive from Zurich.

Re: Best Restaurants in Konstanz?

We've been to this restaurant on each of our last two visits to Konstanz. It is very popular and at busy times there is a queue waiting for free tables. It serves traditional German food and is reasonably priced.

Re: Best Restaurants in Konstanz?

Both Mayura and Sitara are managed by the same owner. Can definitely recommend Sitara for a great Indian meal, it's one of our favourites.
Karma is also good for Thai/Asian dishes.

Re: Best Restaurants in Konstanz?

In the family of Mum, we have a long tradition with Konstanz (parts of our family even originated from that city). Grandmum and Granddad on the mother side did their shopping in Konstanz until 1934, but then shifted to Zürich, for obvious reasons. We however REdetected Konstanz in the 1980ies. And I realized why Granddad always praised the Blauburgunder Weissherbst a real speciality of Baden Württemberg

Re: Best Restaurants in Konstanz?

We had a couple of lunches at the Il Boccone restaurant near the Lago shopping center. It has mainly italian cuisine. We find it pretty good.
