Ammolite – the new jewel in the Europapark

Rust – Sure, if you hear Europapark, you do not think about fine dining. You associate it with screaming children destroying the buffet in the hotel you are locked up at a weekend – no way to escape.

But we went with my godchild on a two day trip to Rust and checked in the new built Bell Rock Hotel. For me the coolest hotel you can book there. And they even harbour a gourmet restaurant – The Ammolite. It was really great, service, food and ambiance! This restaurant is located on the ground floor of the lighthouse and does not really match the rest of the area. I can definitely recommend the foie gras covered with chocolate with rhubarb and the lamb in a heavenly herb crust. You can also get a 3 or 6 courses set menu if you like to taste more of their great food. Even my 9 year old godchild enjoyed the treats between the courses…countless amuse bouches…as they were a little bit hectic and behind the plan in the kitchen.
Definitely worth visiting.

PS: The wine was excellent too: 2009 Winklerberg, Spätburgunder Großes Gewächs
