Lisl Wagner-Bacher

Lisl Wagner-Bacher was literally born into her profession. Her parents operated the Landhaus when Lisl was born. After taking over the establishment from them, she cooked herself up a reputation in only a few years as being the best female chef in the country.

And now after two Michelin stars, five stars and 98 points from A la Carte, and three chef’s hats and 18 points from Gault Millau, Lisl Wagner-Bacher is known as the undisputed “Grande Dame” of Austrian dining today.

No one before her better understood how to combine the finest ingredients into an unmistakable cuisine with regional and Mediterranean accents.

Together with her husband Klaus, who is responsible for the smooth service and unique wine selection, she turned Landhaus Bacher into Wachau’s ultimate gourmet restaurant.

Lisl’s daughters Christina and Susanne followed in their mother’s footsteps, and both have now long been an indispensable part of the establishment. Together they help turn every guest’s visit to Landhaus Bacher into a one-of-a-kind experience.
