5 stars for the Rote Wand Chef’s Table

Chef Max Natmessnig has been admitted by “A la Carte” into the “Squad of Five-Star-Restaurants”. Awarded by incredible 96 points, the Rote Wand Chef’s Table is now one of the top Players in the Gourmet scene.


Who would have thought that this hotspot would be situated in a small village like Zug am Arlberg? But this is exactly what makes the Chef’s Table with its incredible 4 toques, managed by the young Austrian Max Natmessnig, so special and a unique experience for everyone. The cooking is done with regional products as he thinks poorly of kitchen trends. Although his CV has been characterized by international experience – he has learned from the best – he does according to A-la-Carte editor Christian Grünwald “what he would also do in any other region: cooking with the best products from there”. The cooperation with regional partners does not only lie close to Max’s heart, but also to Joschi’s, the host of the hotel Rote Wand. Therefore there is no room for sea fish at the Rote Wand Chef’s Table. And yet it doesn’t get boring even after 19 courses. I would say it is the place to be for palates who have already tasted everything – or not!

From New York to the Arlberg: International cuisine meets regional culinary delights

How come that such a talented chef as Max Natmessnig, according to a swiss journalist “perhaps the greatest cooking talent of Europe”, has now found his place in the old schoolhouse of the Rote Wand in Lech am Arlberg? Anyone who knows Joschi Walch knows about his passion for the international foodie scene. As a great gourmetfan he likes to travel around the globe to visit all the great gourmet hotspots. And it happened in New York! Joschi Walch was so enthusiastic about Max Natmessnig’s extraordinary cooking skills that he simply “took him to the Arlberg”. We are proud to have him in our team!


We congratulate Max and his great team on this outstanding performance!

To many more taste explosions at the Rote Wand Chef’s Table!
