Despite the fact that many excellent "Annas" have worked in this family-run restaurant over the years, Reimund Brunner, an outstanding male chef, has been at the helm of the "Anna Stuben" for a decade now. Meanwhile, the romantic ambience of the two dining rooms has become so famous that it ranks as one of the places one always wants to visit when returning to Ortisei/Val Gardena.

Very central location, a mere 150 metres from the Alpe di Siusi cable car.

What better way to finish off a day on the slopes than with a drink? Bars and après-ski, usually with live music, can be found all over the area. One of the most famous is "La Stua" in Selva di Val Gardena with a range of excellent champagnes. In Ortisei you should not miss "Siglu", an igloo shaped après-ski bar.

Robert L. Stevenson's famous quote "Wine is bottled poetry" is a slightly misleading motto when talking about the fantastic wine bar "La Cërcia". The cosy vinotheque with an excellent selection of carefully chosen vineyards, first-class champagnes and speciality gins is primarily intended to be a cocktail bar where drinks - accompanied by tasty finger food - can be sampled in an exclusive yet relaxed atmosphere. Even if it's your favorite personal cocktail, the bartenders are happy to encourage to trying something new. In Ladin, the bars name translates as "to taste, to savour" - perfect for a convivial evening with various antipasti, cold cuts or the popular "panini", paired with fine wines or a traditionally distilled gin with notes of herbs, lemon zest, mint, juniper, coriander and - last but not least - the famous Dolomites water. In Ortisei's pedestrian zone, open 4.30pm to 1.00am.
