The multi–award winning chef Andreas Döllerer is a versatile man, especially when it comes to food.

In addition, Andreas has a gift for the usage of local products, creating new styles and most of all, he has a passionate interest in anything that creates pleasure.
In 2003, Andreas rose to the top of Austrian chefs, achieving three Gault Millau toques for Döllerers gourmet restaurant as well as two Gault Millau toques for Döllerers Inn. His credo – tradition meets modern – repeatedly demonstrates the courage to innovation. He calls his kitchen line 'Cuisine Alpine'. This line is a successful blend of classic Austrian delicacies flavored with a dash of creativity and international charm. Andreas and his team try to create childhood memories on every plate, in every dish you can find tradition, individuality and personality!
In his free time, Andreas loves to be in gourmet cuisines all over the world and take peeks over shoulders of creative chefs for inspiration and style. When at home in Austria, he prefers local delicatessen. He catches the fish in the near Bluntautal in the morning, creating new dishes and delicacies for lunch. The meat he uses is 'Pinzgauer' organic beef or Tauern Lamb fed on natural pastures of the surroundings of Salzburg. His groceries are as fresh as possible, sometimes using rare and forgotten products turning them into amazing dishes.
Nowadays, Döllerers Geniesserrestaurant is one of the top restaurants in Austria, receiving multiple awards, eg. 'Inspiration of the year-Award'. Everybody who got to know Andreas Döllerer in person will confirm his continuous development and improvement as well as passion and consistency.
Döllerers hotel and restaurant, delicatessen shop and the wine trading house form a family business, which is literally very rare and unusual.
In 1974, Hermann, Sr and Raimund, Sr Döllerer took over their parents' inn, which has been family-owned since 1909. Together with their wives Martha and Marianne, they tried to continuously improve quality in form of raising the culinary range of typical inns with gourmet cuisine, remodeling the hotel area in 1994 to 4-star comfort and excellent delicatessen specialties that are offered in numerous top restaurants and delis. Not to forget to mention the private wine trading house that still supplies the top restaurants in Austria and Bavaria. The gourmet restaurant has acquired 2 Gault Millau toques followed by the inn with one, and 5 crowns at "à la carte".
