Organic restaurant "Essbar"

Open from March till October! Currently closed.

Farm to table – fresh & cool

The nature experience restaurant. We conjure meals and drinks out of everything that grows and flourishes at our organic farm. Enjoy our organic food, directly from our own pastures and gardens amidst nature! With live cooking and large outside seating area within the herb garden.

According to, our eco restaurant "Öko-Essbar" is probably the most sustainable restaurant in the country.

We produce everything ourselves - bread and baked goods in our in-house bakery, flour in our flour mill, home-made pasta in the pasta workshop, vegetables and herbs from our own gardens, meat and cold cuts from species-appropriate husbandry, our own breeding and processing.

PLEASE NOTE: The eco restaurant is part of the Zotter tour and only exclusively open to all visitors of the Choco-Shop-Theatre and the Edible Zoo with a valid day ticket.

100% organic food from our gardens and free range pastures


"Zoo heaven soup", home-made pizza, Zotter burger from the highland cattle or veggie style, shaggy highland beef goulash following our grandmother's recipe and fresh wok dishes every day. Let us surprise you or take a look at our menu...

Try our home-made lemonade, organic coke, our organic+fair coffee or an organic wine. 

The restaurant cooks - fresh - regional - seasonal - vegetarian and with meat from species-appropriate husbandry of old, domestic animal breeds such as Old-Styrian hen and Styrian spotted goat.

Every day, we conjure up freshly cooked, regional and seasonal specialties for you.

Meat from our free range pastures


Our meat comes 100% from our own breeding in the Edible Zoo. The animals live outside all year round and are kept in our species-appropriate, organic husbandry. They graze and live all around the restaurant.

In our newly erected meat workshop, we process the meat directly into the finest meat and cold cuts specialties, which you can try in the eco restaurant.

The delicious zoo delicacies are also be available for your home, which can be bought here from us or in our online shop.
