Mühlviertel in the Upper Austria – the green paradise around the big and small Mühl (the rivers which are enriching the area with tranquillity and a wealth of vegetation), not far away from Linz, is the perfect setting for the beautiful family run restaurant and hotel Mühltalhof.

Mühltalhof is located directly at the river, surrounded by a beautiful forest and being there you feel like becoming one with nature, melting with the surroundings and internalizing the peacefulness of the world around you. It is like entering into a higher state of your inner being, leaving all the disturbances of the chaotic world far behind and being open for the most beautiful sensual experiences. And then food arrives. And it enchants you completely!

In the kitchen are Philip Rachinger, one of the most talented young Austrian chefs and his father Helmut – the Austrian legend. Philip has been travelling around Europe to polish his talent and skills at some of the best Austrian, English and French kitchens to finally join his father in creating one of the most delicious Austrian culinary experiences.

This wonderful team creates dishes which are in a perfect harmony with their environment. Dishes as clean, pure, honest, intense and harmonious as the surrounding nature. They are focused on what really counts – fantastic ingredients and great technique which together create the most delicious flavours and textures. Each dish is bold, spiced up with wit, stunningly beautiful looking without being over the top, seducing and sensual, playful and serious, simple yet very complex at the same time, when taking your palate to an exciting journey of flavours, which I wish would never have ended. Mühltalhof is addictive. For all the right reasons. Don’t say you haven’t been warned!
