We had a 3-course meal and in between each meal we were treated to popular compositions by Mozart. There were 4 musicians - the violin, cello, viola and bass and 2 opera singers - a male and a female who sang in Italian and German while acting out various couple scenes. Clever hubby got the programme booklet so we could "understand" what the songs meant. I found the enunciation of the words extremely clear!
Our verdict: The music was excellent, ambience great but the food was only so-so. Nothing fantastic. Oh and the drinks are exorbitant! (I suppose that's how they earn their money). A bottle of wine would have set you back by about 40€! So no thanks, hubby got the regular Coke and I got a glass of white wine.

Love how "cultural" we look in this photo!
The 2 singers-cum-actors
The starter - White lemon cream soup with cinnamon. Not fantastic
Main course consisting of Breast of roasted Capon on truffled cream with sage, polenta, 'pear potatoes', and vegetables from the Prior's garden. Better than the starter.
Mozart's sweet secret: semi-frozen parfait of honey with fruit puree. Very yummy!
