The restaurant was first mentioned in 803, thereby securing the documented title of Europe’s oldest restaurant. Our eleven uniquely furnished and distinct dining rooms are located within the St. Peter’s Abbey complex, each with its own fascinating story. Whether you find yourself in the open-air lounge in our inner courtyard, the festive ambiance of the Baroque Hall, or in the elegant atmosphere of the Richardstube – the monastery’s former wine cellar – we have a place for every taste and occasion.
Together they have created a symbiosis of tradition and modern. Restaurateurs to the core, Veronika Kirchmair and Claus Haslauer both share the role of host. For the last 25 years, they have carefully lead the business into the 21st century. Surrounding themselves with a savvy and passionate team of restaurant, service and event professionals, everything they do comes from the heart and soul. Perhaps this is why St. Peter Stiftskulinarium is the first address for discerning guests. Not to be forgotten, the couple’s two greyhounds Alona and Nana are beloved members of the St. Peter family.
Innovation in the kitchen and cellar is of utmost importance, as well as professional service and events.Host Claus Haslauer
