About this Business
From Our Editors
Culling flavors from Austria, Germany, France, Italy, and Switzerland, Alpenrose Restaurant treats tongues to dishes from a menu bursting with diverse Alpine cuisine. Weiner schnitzel and tuscan lamb rub elbows on the dinner menu, which ensures freshness by leveraging seasonal ingredients and local harvests, including duck from nearby Maple Leaf Farms. A glass or bottle selected from the extensive wine menu can help lubricate talk tubes, and a broad selection of pastries, including nine flavors of cheesecakes and tarts, supplies patrons with extensive options for indulging sweet teeth. The restaurant, which opened in 1991, beckons visitors to enter through a green, wrought-iron gate before traipsing down a birch-tree-lined cobblestone path. Inside, the dining rooms' massive windows, wood-paneled walls, and carved-wood columns evoke a warm, ski-lodge ambiance. The restaurant also boasts an enviable location; it's just minutes from Holland's famous Tulip Time Festival, whose 2013 edition welcomes the springtime sun May 4-11.
