“Dining at the highest level” is how the Hotel itself describes dining at Restaurant Salon JB Messmer. The main Restaurant of the 5 Star Hotel Dorint Maison Messmer in Baden-Baden offers Breakfast in the morning as well as Dinner a few nights a week, you can find more details below. But the Salon JB Messmer isn’t just another Hotel Restaurant, the Salon reminiscent of a bygone era when the Maison Messmer was the summer residence of the German Emperor Wilhelm I (he was living from 1797 to 1888) in Baden-Baden. This gives everyone the opportunity to enjoy delicacies exactly where Queen Victoria, Empress Elisabeth of Austria, and the Russian imperial family already have dined. I absolutely have a thing for such historic places, especially if you can not see it at first.
To enjoy a delicious 2-course meal I ordered a small mixed salad with cherry tomatoes & croutons for 8,50€ as a started. Before we already indulged in the shared breadbasket on our table, with butter and olive oil. Years ago I have already had Dinner at Salon JB Messmer in Baden-Baden and back then they served individually wrapped Echiree butter. Until I have tried this butter for the first time I always thought butter tastes the same, every time, but this one is really something special. However, this time they served three pieces of uncovered butter. The Salad was okay, it was just a simple salad, but the highlight was definitely my vegetarian main course. Homemade tagliatelle with sauteed yellow boletus in herb cream & caramelized chilli pumpkin for 20,90€. Wow, what a delicious dish. A well seasoned creamy sauce and al dente Pasta, together with sweet and a tiny bit spicy pumpkin. I have never had such a combination before, yet I still dream about the taste explosion I had. If you want to enjoy something meat-free, I can definitely recommend this dish! For more variation, check out my overview of other Restaurants in Baden-Baden.
To end this nice Dinner at Salon JB Messmer at the Dorint Maison Messmer Hotel Baden-Baden I simply had an Espresso Macchiato, while dreaming about the glorious times of when all the imperial people have been dining at exactly my table!? Otherwise, you can enjoy a magnificent view of the world-famous spa gardens and the Casino of Baden-Baden right from your table at the Restaurant on the 1st floor right above the entrance.
