The place

Restaurant Victor’s Fine Dining is a 3 Michelin star restaurant located in the beautiful castle Schloss Berg, which is part of the Victor’s Residenz-Hotel Schloss Berg. The Renaissance castle at the top Mosel in Perl-Nennig stands on the edge of Saarland and is very close to France, Luxembourg and Belgium. The property features a Mediterranean villa and small Renaissance castle which are nestled among vineyards. There are rooms in both of the buildings and the villa also features a big spa.

Behind the castle façade, one will discover the quite unique fine-dining experience of Victor’s Fine Dining. Creativity and the intensity of the flavours brought this restaurant to what it is today: one of the best haute cuisine restaurants in Germany.

Christian Bau himself started his culinary career in 1987 with a training at Ringhotel Götz Sonne Eintracht in Achern. He continued to various German restaurants before he took on a position at Restaurant Schwarzwaldstube for legendary Harald Wohlfahrt. He worked with Wohlfahrt for five years before he became the Chef de Cuisine at Victor’s Fine Dining Schloss Berg in 1998.

Chef Christian Bau firstly became a master of the French cuisine but changed his cuisine into a highly creative, contemporary cooking style with massive influences from Asia. This demands enormous skills as well as bravery. Chef de Cuisine Christian Bau is one of the few chefs in the world that successfully managed to make this change and combine these kitchens into a high-end fine dining experience. Today, his cooking at Victor’s Gourmet-Restaurant is an inspiring combination of top creativeness and boldness. We visited the restaurant in summer 2016 and enjoyed an extensive ‘Paris – Tokyo’ menu:

The “Belgian Taste Buds” Experience

Chef Christian Bau’s highest attention to details, mind-blowing balance between the flavours, utmost caring about the ingredients, playfulness, and sheer craziness, bring Restaurant Victor’s Gourmet to the top level of gastronomy. The dining room could maybe use some more excitement and the mixture between the inventive food and the traditional castle environment could be somewhat confusing. However, in the plate, surprising and highly detailed creations will surprise every diner. Victor’s Fine Dining Schloss Berg is a must in Germany.
