The taubenkobel of Eveline and Walter Eselböck is an Austrian restaurant legend. Let's forget this sentence. Legends you watch, but you go out to eat in restaurants. Many things are new, many things are different, some things reminiscent of past times. 

Alain Weissgerber and Barbara Eselböck have opened the window and let in fresh air. This air flow not only smells of spring and summer, it also brings the archaic flavors of on an open fire grilled food to the noses of the guests. The standards are high, but not the threshold.

The taubenkobel Philosophy
Our home is Europe
Kitchen of the Kronländer k. and k.

Not everything what is new is good. For the search for the lost taste next to our own house, which is today in the top food of the whole world program, has begun with us in the "taubenkobel" more than 20 years ago.  Since 1992, we have been collecting the wild herbs, which are indispensable in our kitchen, in the meadows and hills around the lake Neusiedel. We have not invented this, of course not: already the grandfather, who lead the "eselmühle" since 1961 in st. Margarethen, bred pigs and cattle in a way that we call nowadays "biological". At that time one said to it: self-evident.  We are not a better world, but we are happy about the richness and distinctiveness of the Pannonian region. We love the plants that thrive here, and the animals that live here. These may be the diverse culture that constitutes the Pannonian and the sum of countless influences. We love the Pannonian art and the Pannonian craftsmanship, so we serve our dishes on dishes, since the beginning we have been potted in the village.  Come with us on a trip to the unmistakable. Producers, who know us personally and appreciate their work, support us. Please take the time to find the best for you. Take the time to enjoy it

"I love the hospitality, but if serving would be the only thing I would do I would be pretty bored. I constantly need new challenges and am always looking for variety. Such is the constant advancement in taubenkobel which makes to me infinitely more fun. "
Barbara Eselböck-Weissgerber

Greisslerei at taubenkobel

The small "Greisslerei" next to the taubenkobel challenges the taubenkobel and brought up a tough competition. When the Greisslerei is doing a great job the taubenkobel has to work even harder.
Life is not a bed of roses.

The team is capable of the cuisine of the Piemont as well as the cuisine of the Pannonian region. Beside the restaurant you will also find lots of lovely food related accessories and things to eat and drink as well.  Lovers of good food and wine will be in heaven at the Greisslerei.

Our home is europe.
not everything that is good is new.
if today in all parts of the world it is praised on regional products and traditional preparation, we feel validated - and are also a little proud. because the search for the "lost taste", which is the program in the top gastronomy throughout the world today, has started with us in the "taubenkobel " more than 20 years ago.
since 1992, we gather the wild herbs which are growing around our house and without them our cuisine would not be the same. we did not invent this, of course not: even our grandpa, in 1961 at the "Eselmühle" in st. margarethen was having animals and produced lots of things himself -the way it would to be called "organic". 

we are no do-gooder but we love the richness and uniqueness of the Pannonian region. we love the plants that thrive here, and the animals that live here. we like the diverse culture that makes up the Pannonian and the sum of countless influences. we love the art and the Pannonian craft, so we serve our dishes at handmade table ware, which we use since the beginning.
they go with us on a journey into distinctive.
producers, we know personally and whose work we very much appreciate support us.
we take the time to find the best for you. take your time to enjoy it
