Rendezvous on a plate: regional meets refined

In Reil on the Middle Mosel, Hotel Reiler Hof welcomes its guests from its prime location with the Mosel right on its doorstep. For over three hundred years, the river has flowed past the picturesque timber-framed building’s entrance. Behind its charming façade, the hospitality of the Heim family awaits. Already in its third generation, the family impresses guests with a flair that combines a traditional ambience with fresh creativity.

The latter is primarily provided by chef Christoph Heim, who returned to the family business in 2011 after years working in three-star gastronomy with Klaus Erfort and Helmut Thieltges, bringing back with him a wealth of experience and plenty of ideas.

The restaurateur then completely transformed the erstwhile simple menu of his parents’ business and over the years developed his own unique style inspired by award-winning cuisine. “The predominantly local ingredients are of the very best quality, market fresh and seasonal. With skill, passion and sophisticated ideas, he combines these ingredients and transforms them into full-flavoured taste experiences, in which contemporary and traditional elements complement each other in the finest way.” (Source: Der Große Restaurant & Hotel Guide).

The 33-year-old has succeeded in breathing new life into the restaurant’s cuisine and making it the new highlight of the establishment. His wife Maria and mother Jutta head the service with a charming and attentive manner and advise with great expertise on the finely assorted wine list.

An indulgent stay in accommodation with character

But not only the cuisine and service delights guests; the hotel rooms too have been given a contemporary flair. The newly designed deluxe and wellness rooms in the main house have character; they impress with their spacious layout, stylish half-timbering, modern furnishings and bathrooms to relax in, each fitted with rain shower, whirlpool tub and sauna. In the adjoining guest house “Traube”, guests can enjoy cosy, country house-style comfort.

Whether you're a cyclist or hiker and spontaneously stop in or have booked well in advance to spend cosy hours in the restaurant, you'll find something delicious on the menu in every price range - tried, tested and special, from characteristic Mosel to contemporary cuisine.

This is also recognised by the Guide Michelin, which honours Heim’s Restaurant with a Bib Gourmand as an ambassador of good, authentic and affordable cuisine, “In this approximately 300 year-old establishment you can enjoy fresh flavoursome food in tasteful surroundings. The wide range of menu options, ranging from “Jägerschnitze” and “braised shoulder of US beef” to “skrei in a bouillabaisse broth” and “shellfish ravioli with a rouille sauce”, showcase the extensive skills of restaurateur Christoph Heim. Tip: the tables by the window overlooking vineyards and the River Mosel.”

The window seating, as well as that on the wonderfully large and airy terrace overlooking the Mosel, is indeed something special. Sat here, you can experience the wonderful interplay between warm hospitality, excellent fresh cuisine of the highest quality and the stunning views of the gently flowing river together with the vineyards on the opposite bank.

Whether you visit Heim’s Restaurant, stay at the hotel during your holiday or take part in one of the legendary kitchen parties, the Reiler Hof offers you history, hospitality and enjoyment, all under one roof.
