The heart of the hotel

With 65 seats and an open show kitchen, the Restaurant DUKE will spoil you with delicacies and culinary treats. A sophisticated bar construction connects the restaurant with the DUKE Bar & Lounge and the unique ELLINGTON Sommergarten.

Restaurant DUKE

Casual fine dining of the highest level – without having to wear a collar and tie.

Traditional yet modern

Our head chef Florian Glauert cherishes traditional cooking, adores the simple things in life and lives a creative, modern lifestyle. He and his sous-chef Marco Müggenburg use all those attributes to create a type of “cuisine logique“. The aim is to create a compilation of exciting aromas, new horizons and traditional French haute cuisine. Glauert puts enormous value on high-quality, regional produce, which he brings together on the plate with great attention to detail, in a sophisticated yet uncomplicated way.

The hosts of the DUKE Restaurant are Babette Pflügl and Christian Stöhr, whose suave manners combine the relaxed charm of the restaurant with the finely presented kitchen.

For those who want to be in complete privacy, we have a separate private dining room for twelve people which can be booked exclusively.
