Just to mention a few: Palace Luzern (16 Gault-Millau-points), Restaurant Pétrus in London (2 Michelin-stars), The Grove Luxury Resort, Embassy in London – all those were stations of David Kostner. 

Then the Innsbruck-born chef found his way back home. In September 2010 he became the chef of Schaufelspitz restaurant on the Stubai Glacier. There he and his team won 15 Gault-Millau points and a toque for the Schaufelspitz restaurant for the already fourth time.


The Style


Kostner provides culinary highlights in the truest sense of the word in the gourmet restaurant at almost 3,000m. His cuisine is based on traditional Austrian cuisine. He expertly unites it with international influences and his creations excel in quality and finesse.  Spices and aromas add to Kostner’s compositions without being too obtrusive.He is deeply rooted in his home country and that is why the Tyrolean chef uses top-quality, local produce, often from the Stubai Valley that he buys directly from the farmers and local small producers. Together with his young team Kostner creates imaginative dishes like the Stubai Schaufelspitz, interprets traditional dishes like e.g. speck dumplings in a new way and creates exceptional delicacies.
