This bar, restaurant and disco has so much gemütlichkeit (cheeriness) that it’s thigh-slappingly hilarious if you’re in the mood.The interior’s painstakingly constructed to look like an Austrian ski lodge, down to the skis in the entrance, waiters wearing lederhosen and Alpine furniture seemingly handcrafted by the Brothers Grimm. You reach the disco floor through some chalet doors; the 1980s music is cheesier than a post-piste fondue party. Although dressing up is not required, it could get you in for free. On our visit there was no beer on draught, because, said the barman, ‘we ran out.’
Yet Bodo’s Schloss makes more effort with the food than it needs to. The rye bread ‘with traditional spreads’ was excellent and soon had us yodelling for more. The wiener schnitzel wasn’t the most delicate, but it was perfectly adequate. Less impressive was a beef goulash – cooked too quickly, the chunks of meat were almost inedibly tough.
In the absence of draught beer, we tried the Austrian wines: they were all good – as they should be when they start at £6.90 a glass. Prices overall are on the high side. This is a fun restaurant attached to a nightclub, but not a gastronomic destination.
