Are you ready to discover the exquisite agri-food proposals of the highest hamlet in the region? In Sauris, we are sure that you will find several alternatives to tickle your taste buds.
Sauris di Sotto
Along the characteristic cobbled streets, in the historic centre you will find the Morgenleit restaurant, it has a wide-ranging menu and it changes according to the season. Do not hesitate to ask Loris for some help in choosing the most suitable dish for you.
Only a stone’s throw away, you will find the historic restaurant La Pace, where Franca and her family members prepare traditional dishes that have been skilfully presented and cooked.
For a quick lunch or an aperitif, you can also go and meet Sarah, at the Bar Kursaal: you will not be disappointed. Here you can also have scrumptious breakfasts with home-made desserts.
For a romantic aperitif, held in a special location, go to Borgo Eibn, only a stone’s throw away from the town. If you wish to stay there for dinner, try Rocco’s freshly-grilled meat as well as the other products from the Carniaagricola company.
If you need to buy the necessary ingredients for your dinners in the apartments of the Multi-building Hotel, nip into the well-stocked Schmit supermarket that is near to the Tourist Information Office.
Sauris di Sopra
In the Borgo di San Lorenzo, there is the Pame Stilf pizzeria, here you can have breakfast, at lunchtime you can eat traditional dishes, and in the evening, you can relax in front of a piping hot pizza.
You can have a rich breakfast and taste local products at the Speck Stube, where you will find Donatella and Caterina ready to welcome you. In the small grocer’s shop nearby, you can buy all you need to cook your meals in the apartments of the Multi-building Hotel.
You will be able to have a special breakfast also on the terrace of the Albergo Neider. Danila will welcome you also for lunch, an aperitif and for your candle-lit dinners in summer; instead, during the cold months, you will be able to have dinner enjoying the warmth of the indoor stube and fireplace.
If you want to know absolutely all there is to know about Sauris beer, go to the Kelder, the Zahre beer factory outlet. Here, in the former home of Massimo e Sandro Petris’ parents, you will find Deborah and Sergio who will present you with the 5 beer types produced by the Zahre beer craft brewery. You can accompany the tankards of beer with products from the Wolf ham factory and locally-produced cheese. Do not miss the guided tours of the brewery that Sandro and Massimo periodically organise.
The premises immersed in the woodland
Daniela and Augusto will welcome you into the charming Chalet Rikhelan restaurant, where you will be able to taste the dishes prepared by chef Claudio. The terrace of the Chalet that overlooks Mount Bivera is the perfect location where to have a romantic aperitif; we suggest having an Ugo, prepared with the mint grown in the Chalet garden.
On Mount Ruche, you will find Derna and her holiday farm; here, don’t forget to ask for an herb-flavoured grappa, herbs which Derna personally picks in the wood.
Between Sauris di Sopra and Sauris di Sotto you will find the campsite, here you will find the C’entro e co restaurant in Velt run by Gianna and Flavio. Here Flavio will allow you to try experiential tasting sessions of local products and some traditional dishes.
By the Lakeside
Would you like to have dinner in a special location? The Maanja restaurant is the ideal place to go! You can have dinner while admiring the lake through the large windows in the dining room.
If you wish to stop for a snack or an aperitif while enjoying the view of the lake from above, go to the Pa Krhaizar restaurant. Here you will find Antonella and her female staff will welcome you as if you were a member of the family. In winter, a visit there is an absolute must, to have a break to enjoy the warmth in front of the magnificent “fogolar” in the living room while sipping home-made grappa or a cup of herbal tea.
Would you like to have a Sauris dinner, prepared by a real Sauris-born chef? Go to Riglarhaus, Paola and her staff will delight you with a wide variety of dishes prepared with local products. It will not be easy to choose from the various proposals!
