"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." - Hippocrates
For us, healthy food is something that is not only extremely important but something that must be satisfying as well. For this motive we seek to offer our customers not only great tasting meals but that which is healthy, nutritiously adequate and also visually appealing. The choice of vegetarian best represents these characteristics.
Our principles are to: have our ingredients as whole foods with as much organic as is possible; use only wholemeal flour (with the exception of our bread which contains some white flour to assist in rising of the yeast); use the less-refined cane sugar, agave nectar and raw honey for sweetening; not to use MSG or powdered stock. A deep-fryer has never seen the inside of our kitchen. Processed foods are convenient and tasty but do not offer much in the way of nutrition. Nutritious foods give a sense of satisfaction and provide high and lasting energy levels without weighing you down. What could be a better way to prepare for the activities of the great outdoors?!
Upon arrival at our bar you will find a vast selection of organic products as well as home-made biscuits, cakes and deserts; wonderful hot chocolate made from the melting of real chocolate in milk (we recommend trying it with one of our dairy-free milks or in water alone); a hot tea from our fine selection which we have in either loose-leaf (personally chosen by our good friend Oli, our Berlinese tea supplier) or in bags, as you wish.
Our lunch menu varies from day to day, season to season, where you can choose amongst: our home-made, wholemeal focaccia served with local cheese or accompanied by vegan salsas; exquisite soups; tasty pastas; main courses of cheese, egg or vegan varieties; and the not to be missed deserts (especially worth trying the raw vegan ones). We try to always have something on-hand suitable for those with food allergies and intolerances so we ask that you please inform our staff prior to selecting.
Our decision not offer sandwiches or "fast-foods" is tied to the fact that we prefer our customers to be seated in front of a well thought out and prepared dish to enjoy along with the amazing panorama and ambient. Our natural still spring water comes free of charge.
Dinner & Breakfast
The half-board accommodation is comprised of:
A vegetarian dinner, served for all at 19:00 with free water on the table. A fixed menu with first course, main course and desert with tea or coffee offered afterwards. All food is carefully prepared on the premises by our kitchen staff. We strive to provide a complete dinner that is well balanced. We are happy to cater for those with food allergies, intolerances or specific needs. Please inform us when booking or immediately upon arrival to help us give you the best possible service.
Breakfast, as the name implies, is a fundamental meal, especially when you have a full day out in the mountains ahead of you. We offer a substantial buffet breakfast which is generally comprised of: a choice of cereals; dried fruits and nuts; home-baked bread; jam, honey and butter; yoghurt (both dairy and dairy-free); cheese; fruit; organic apple juice; and milk (both dairy and dairy-free). You will be welcomed by one of our staff at the bar, ready to prepare you a tea or coffee to help kick-start the day.
Breakfast is served at whatever time you prefer (please let the staff know prior to retiring for the night) up until 9:00.
