welcome to Danu — family-run restaurant inspired by traditional recipes of Central Europe from Swabia to Transilvania served in a fresh creative manner

we are not an ordinary restaurant. We are a wine restaurant. A restaurant inspired by the Central European wine-making tradition, which in turn is inseparable from the history and gastronomic tradition of these places. The symbol and connecting element is the Danube river.

we invite you on a journey along the great river, which has survived different geological epochs, has seen the birth and fall of empires. It has become an important water artery connecting West and East, North and South. And most importantly sheltering numerous wine-growing regions on its shores. As the Danube flows through Swabia from the Black Forest to the Black Sea, so our wine list begins in Württemberg and continues through the Wachau and Kremstal via Burgenland and Sopron to Szekszárd and Villány.

however, our travels and wine research are not limited to the Danube regions. In our portfolio you will find, for example, Saale-Unstrut and Eger, Saxony and Tokaj, Alsace and Alto Adige — wide and multifaceted offer. Like in our bright and colorful menu you will find dishes inspired by Czech, Swabian, Tyrolean and other regional cuisines.

our wines
Swabia source of the Danube river and starting point for our wine list
just as the Danube originates on the slopes of the Black Forest, so our wine list begins in Swabia, in the wine-growing region of Württemberg, where in the valleys of the Neckar and its tributaries, in the surroundings of Heilbronn, Stuttgart and Tübingen, a wide range of black and white grape varieties grows on keuper and shell limestone. Close ties with its southern neighbors, as a result of which such exotic varieties for Germany as Trollinger and Lemberger (Blaufränkisch) have become widespread in local vineyards, make the region truly unique. Despite a long history of red wine production, the region is also proud of its white wines from Sauvignon Blanc, Burgundy varieties, Kerner and, of course, Riesling. For a long time, Swabian wines were not widely known: only recently they began to enter the international arena with great success!
hills, valleys, dry stone terraces – thousand years of winemaking tradition
despite the fact that most of the regions in our map were outside the Roman Empire, where the Danube served as a natural border, modern winemaking was born here with the arrival of the Romans. And although today we are talking about a rather German tradition of winemaking, we should not forget that it has Romanesque roots. Thus going back into history for hundreds and thousands of years. A predominantly continental climate predetermined the development of winemaking, concentrating in the narrowly defined boundaries of river valleys, steep slopes of hills oriented to the south. It led to the emergence of special styles of wine and, of course, grape varieties adapted to local conditions where they gave the best results. And thanks to terroir features soil and microclimate the vineyards got their own names to distinguish the best wines from mediocre ones. Which in turn led to the creation of the classification of vineyards, for example, the oldest in the world Tokaj, dating back to the middle of XVII century.
Years and hundreds of years of hard work, tons of stones turned into dry stone walls, marking the slopes with endless lines of narrow terraces, climbing up from the river bed to the sun. Old vines that have taken root deep in slate, gneiss or sandstone all this is a unique heritage, a centuries-old but living history, a treasure enclosed in a bottle of your choice in our wine list.







hard work, long way, bright vision
no matter how important climatic conditions are, the basis of everything is human labor. The work of numerous generations who have devoted their lives to making wine. Day after day, year after year, harvest after harvest. Pouring a glass of wine to our guests, we see in it a reflection of the person who created this wine. In this sense, we are engaged in authentic wine wine behind which there is a specific person. Whose name is on the label, who is rightfully proud of what he has done. Modern and traditional, trendy and archaic as different as the people who make them. We draw inspiration from them to move forward. They give us energy and desire to become better. They are what connects us with our land, with our history. They give us laughter and smiles. They color our daily life. No wonder they say that the truth is in the wine. It is life itself!
