SEASON MENUS (same conditions like the Classic Menu)


On large request these menus depend completely on the seasonal availability of the market offers and therefore the dishes cannot be defined here. If you desire a beautiful surprise with local specialities, just indicate your dislikes and trust Mattisse´s creativity.


Until it is possible Chef Mattisse prepares all your Menus mostly with BIO-dynamic or/and NO OGM ingredients. Usually all ingredients are available, but sometimes there might be a menu change. If so I beg your pardon and thanks for your understanding. Furthermore Chef Mattisse will not be responsible for any harm or injury, neither physical nor mental, resulting from any allergy or any hypersensitive reaction towards certain aliments.
