Paprika, Pigs and Pike-Perch

This quaint Podersdorf restaurant is one of the best places for a meal east of Lake Neusiedl. Dishes from “Zur Dankbarkeit” combine influences from Eastern and Western cultures to transport regional dishes to another dimension. Local ingredients are sourced from the lake, marshlands, and the Pannonian Plains to create a genuine taste of the region.

Discover some of the best dishes of the Burgenland region with a spicy & aromatic twist at “Zur Dankbarkeit” in Podersdorf. Located on the east side of Lake Neusiedl and just 1½ hours south of Vienna in a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this charming restaurant lies along the border with Hungary.

Experience the flavors of traditional dishes with the flair of eastern spices. A sweet and spicy kick of paprika exhilarates the restaurant’s classic soup of pike-perch caught fresh from the lake, saffron adds complexity to the house panna cotta, and ham from the free-range and rare breed of local Mangalitsa melts in your mouth. Don’t forget that wine from the region is key to your meal! The village of Podersdorf is located in a region that specializes in luscious sweet wines called Trockenbeerenauslese. The aromas of dried apricot, pineapple, and cinnamon in a luxuriously sweet and creamy body create an absolutely heavenly end to your meal.
