A longtime Vallarta favorite, Austrian host Andreas Rupprechter named the place in honor of a fellow countryman, Mexico’s former emperor. And Maximilian himself would have loved dining here, perhaps choosing hearty comfort food like Wienerschnitzel with potatoes and austrian salad. Or delving into gourmet renditions of contemporary European fare, like Rack of lamb with horsersdish mustard crust, polenta, green beans and bell pepper purée or duckbreast, port, sauce, foie gras, black pepper & rum, caramelized pinapple.
And while the menu is constantly being tweaked, it’s nice knowing that some things don’t change, and for a dozen years we’ve been able to count on enjoying our favorite plates here. So whether dining al fresco with unparalleled people watching, or in an intimate, air-conditioned, Old Worldmilieu, when a fabulous meal or just a perfect pastry and a special coffee is what you crave, this is the place to be.
