There's many things to recommend Burgrestaurant Gebhardsberg, among them the views of Bregenz from the dining terrace, the helpful staff and the historical setting of the restaurant in a former stronghold. Sadly the food isn't one of the reasons to come to this restaurant. Though ti does seem to be popular with bridal parties, there were two on the premises while we were having dinner on the terrace.
My companion and I both had the special 'Turandot' menu, after all that's why we were in Breganz so we thought we'd enjoy the special menu the hotel composed for the occasion. The theme started with a trio of items: a panna cotta of cheese, thin slices of tomato and pesto sauce in the colors of the Italian flag but after this it sadly ran out of theme and flavor as course after course the menu reverted to local favorites.
The companion had the accompanying wine flight which consisted, except for a single Spanish wine, of wines from the local Austrian and German vicinity. The wines did go perfectly with the food once all the faux Italian elements dissipated after the first course. By the last, which was an icy passion fruit sorbet on top of fresh berries, there wasn't a hint of Puccini or Turandot to be tasted anywhere.
Kudos to the management though for having enough staff on hand to deal with two wedding parties as well as the individual guests dining on the terrace. Other establishments might have and in my experience have tried to use the staff to service all three events leaving everyone unhappy.
Also, this is not a place to take your wheel chair bound Gran. It's a former castle and hence very hard to get in to with several flights of steps. The car park in on a lower level, is unpaved but lit after dark. There's a rather steep walk up a hundred foot length of cobbled path. Ladies, your heels will suffer if you choose to wear them if you visit.
Can't argue with the views over the town and the lake which are especially beautiful as the sun sets. Unfortunately the views are superior to the food.
