Saarland

Saarlanders enjoy their food – which is not surprising with Alsace just across the border – and according to a Saarland saying, 'the main thing is to eat well'. Christian Bau and Klaus Erfort are the region's flagship chefs, but it's possible to eat well on a smaller budget almost everywhere, especially along the river Saar.
GästeHaus Klaus Erfort in Saarbrücken

Klaus Erfort's restaurant in Saarbrücken is housed in an elegant villa surrounded by a large, beautifully tended private English park. His food is not meant to be silently admired but to be discovered out of curiosity and the desire for pleasure. Erfort believes that the truth lies on the plate. His modern dishes are perfectly balanced creations with different flavours and textures blended together. His menus are complemented by a wine list of over 600 first-class wines.

Victor's gourmet restaurant Schloss Berg in Perl-Nennig

The most discerning guests are enchanted by Victor's Residenz-Hotel Schloss Berg with its mediterranean villa and small Renaissance castle amid the vineyards of the Moselle – and even city types suddenly discover their love for country life. Where knights and noblewomen once feasted, today in Victor's gourmet restaurant, Michelin-starred chef Christian Bau dazzles his diners with new ideas, personal dedication and the highest quality standards.

Schlachthof Brasserie in Saarbrücken

Schlachthof Brasserie accommodates up to 70 diners in a former abattoir office building. There is the bistro area, the restaurant with beautiful art nouveau panelling and an adjoining room, with the option of dining in the mediterranean conservatory in warm weather. Philipp Metz's team of chefs offer contemporary interpretations of French bistro classics and choice dry aged steaks. Fine wines are served by the glass.

Landgasthof Paulus in Nonnweiler

The beautifully kept Landgasthof Paulus stands close to the site of the Celtic circular wall in Nonnweiler, which was Europe's most significant fortification 2,500 years ago. Here, guests can savour top organic chef Sigrune Essenpreis's traditional dishes based on country gourmet cuisine along with fine wines from the well-stocked cellar. The Paulus also has a Wein & Genuss centre, which offers tutored sessions on matching wines with food.
