The centerpiece of Hidalgo Suites & Restaurant is the eponymous restaurant Mattivi opened over 35 years ago. Here, residents, regular guests and vacationers meet in a discreetly relaxed atmosphere and watch how the high-performance grill cooks the finest international meat specialties at 900° Celsius or how wonderful pasta and risotto dishes are prepared in the open kitchen.

"Restaurant in a restaurant": a piece of Japan in South Tyrol
But because the landlord is not only a connoisseur, but above all a doer, Mattivi has now added a visionary highlight to the Hidalgo Suites & Restaurant: In the so-called "restaurant in the restaurant" a Beef Tasting expects the guest, which he experienced in such a way probably never before.
In the midst of the noble, Japanese-inspired ambience, you can taste what is probably the most expensive meat in the world in a room next to the main restaurant – and in a direct comparison. As a highlight of the multi-course menu, original Kobe Beef, Japanese Wagyū and South Tyrolean Wagyū are served side by side on one plate. The fine delicacies come in the form of butter-tender slices that melt in the mouth and give the guest an unforgettable taste experience. Definitely a must see for any meat lover!
Hidalgo Suites & Restaurant with pool and sauna
Those who eat and drink well also want to sleep well. But the Hidalgo Suites apartments are not just for that: The modern, light-flooded and spacious apartments (from 55 sqm) are also recommended for longer stays, because individuality and comfort go hand in hand here. All suites are equipped to a high standard with their own kitchenette, panoramic windows and terrace.

The small, but very stylish outdoor pool with sauna and fitness/rest room is also very well done. The suite and pool facility, designed by Otto Mattivi himself, proves once again that South Tyrol is not only capable of rustic mountain hut romance, but also makes a great impression in an international setting.
