The fine art of true pleasure in PREZIOSO Restaurant

“Nourish the body well so that the soul will want to reside there” is a saying apocryphally attributed to Winston Churchill. He would have truly loved it here, as we cook nourishing and refined gourmet cuisine in the finest sense of the word. A defiant fusion of hearty Alpine fair and Mediterranean opulence.

In PREZIOSO gourmet restaurant at Castel Fragsburg 5 Star Hotel Merano, we love to amaze and astonish our guests. No matter how many times we step out onto our glass loggia and look out over the parapet of the panorama terrace at the stunning, cinematic views of Merano, we always find something new to marvel at in the ravishingly beautiful natural surroundings.

There couldn’t be a more ideal setting for the exquisite dishes prepared by our head chef. A culinary virtuoso, he fuses the many facets of regional cuisine with the opulence of the Mediterranean cuisine. This place in South Tyrol, this luxury hotel in Dolomites and our fine restaurant is ideal to spend a Gourmet Holidays in Italy.

Whether it’s an agreeable lunch you partake of, a sumptuous gourmet dinner or our Best breakfast in Italy, you will invariably have a sense of savoring life to the full.  And besides we have Gourmet Deals. The sublime cuisine is of course rounded off by impeccable yet affectionate service and the excellent advice of our sommelier when choosing from the fine wines in our cellar due to we offer also a wine tasting service.

Our restaurant

The perfection of simplicity

Our South Tyrolean chef, Egon Heiss, says ‘The highest form of art is to ignore the insignificant.’ Over the course of his long career as a Michelin stared chef, he’s cooked delicious food all over the world for politicians, Formula 1 stars, royalty and billionaires. Egon is convinced that ‘if you’ve seen and experienced everything there is to see and do, you return to the perfection of the simple things in life.’

In this vein, the ‘tinkerer and magician’ from Val Sarentino – a moniker given to him by cooking critics of the Gault Millau guide who wax lyrical when praising his creations as ‘very astutely staged works of art’ – has been in pursuit of the perfect “Knödel”, for years and years. And although his personal library is packed with cooking books, more than 3,000 to be precise, he’s focused his research on recipes handed down from one generation to the next by speaking to the elderly who still have the knowledge of those recipes. The father of three, who never wanted to be anything other than a chef, tells us lovingly how ‘my grandparents explain me how they grab a ‘pinch’ of this and a ‘dash’ of that. That’s what cooking from the gut means. They also know how draughts and the weather can play a key role when cooking dumplings.’ His childhood dream of becoming a chef was never about collecting stars and toques but to ‘cook and eat together.’ Which is why the bread expert and dumpling lover delivers passionate, private cooking classes which you can book here with us.

For centuries, the Fragsburg is strongly anchored in stone and rock and has always given the impression of swaying gently above the tree tops; similarly, our cooking concept is deeply rooted in the South Tyrolean tradition yet enriched with Italian sensuality and openness to the world’s flavours.

Royale breakfast

Breakfast like a king

So goes the old saying, and it’s one we’ve taken to heart. Our royal breakfast is our pride and joy. It goes without saying that all our specialities are fresh and homemade. We offer everything you could wish for: mouth-watering bread, croissants fresh from the oven and South Tyrolean pastries, served with fruit jams and chutneys, creamy nut spread or delicacies from the cheese counter with antipasti – or would you prefer muesli, nuts and fruit from the fresh fruit bar?
It’s all accompanied by freshly pressed juices and teas made with herbs and flowers from our garden. And there’s also sparkling wine for anyone who would like to get the day off to a sparkling start.
