For Harald Pollak, his profession as an innkeeper and chef is a vocation. A fundamental decision from which the entire Weinviertel region still benefits sustainably today. Since 2004, the Retzbacherhof in Unterretzbach has been setting culinary impulses. Traditional skills, combined with ever new ideas in the kitchen, make the inn one of the most sought-after addresses in Lower Austria. Guests are usually greeted by the patroness of the house, Sonja Pollak. Passing the delightful cooking and wine school, the guest arrives at the invitingly laid tables in the Salettl. The 400-year-old wooden ceiling is both memorable and unique. The generously designed inn garden with chestnut trees offers a shady spot in summer.

Character on the Weinviertel plate

The dishes at the Retzbacherhof are traditional and seasonal. The credo is: "You can eat character." Means: The region must be noticeable. The basis is the own herb garden as well as the close cooperation with local partner farms. The Weinviertel con carne of Alpine beef is served with green pointed peppers, organic eggs and roast potatoes. The farmer's blunzen on chili cabbage salad or the pink roasted pork tenderloin with sardine cream is recommended. Great attention is also paid to meatless cuisine. The wine list is characterized by the wines of the surrounding wineries. Sonja Pollak's pastries provide the crowning glory in the Weinviertel gourmet restaurant.
