The right mix
of traditional and modern, enhanced with local inspiration and international flair
There are probably many reasons why the top gourmet guides say Das Schiff has one of the best restaurants in Vorarlberg. The main reason has to be the chef herself, Mother Metzler. Preparing food to standards that earn Gault&Millau toques as a self-taught chef says something about her talent, motivation and passion.
Another key reason, however, is surely the successful blend of traditional and modern, international and local cuisine. One of the iron rules of the kitchen here is to use local before imported, fresh before preserved and natural before artificial ingredients. This not only benefits the local region and the environment, but also tastes much better.
