Hubertus, Filzmoos, Austria, the restaurant from Johanna Maier, according several magazines "the best female chef in the world": an overwhelming experience, if you are a serious chower.

Dishes are mostly "variatios of ", i.e. for example foi gras entree consists of 3 different preparations of foi gras, and entrée variations of flusskrebs even 4 completely different small plates, each one with unique preparation and flavour.

Most of the Main courses come in two - completely different prepared - servings - for example deer: first serving grilled , second steamed and in puff-pastry.

Starters 20 euro, main courses 35, all four of the 5-course menus are equally priced at 88. Smaller servings for kids available.

The restaurant and service -though relais & chateaux - is not fancy, but very solid and reliable. Mrs. Meier personally welcomed each guest.

Most of my 3-star experiences have been by far more expensive and by far less pleasant.

Regardless where you are - from Salzburg airport it is 1 hours drive, from Munich 2 hours, from Vienna or Stuttgart 4 hours - go go go ....!

Dinner, lunch only Saturday and Sunday.
