Hotel Alhambra's Alfred Keller Restaurant Retains its Michelin Star

Alfred Keller, the signature restaurant at Boutique Hotel Alhambra, has maintained its prestigious Michelin star status. Nestled in the secluded part of Čikat Bay, Alfred Keller is a culinary gem that pays homage to the renowned 20th-century Austrian architect and designer of the Alhambra villa.

Under the expert leadership of young Austrian Chef Michael Gollenz, Alfred Keller continues to dazzle diners with its award-winning à la carte dishes and multi-course Signature and Innovation Tasting Menus.

These gastronomic masterpieces are perfectly paired with a celebrated wine programme featuring 550 of the world’s finest wines – a wine programme recently celebrated at the Wine Spectator Awards for 2024.

Chef Michael Gollenz took the helm at Alfred Keller in 2021, following mentorship from 2-Michelin-star Chef Christian Kuchler. Shortly after his appointment, Chef Gollenz earned Alfred Keller its first Michelin star, a testament to his extraordinary talent.

The chef with his kitchen team

His cuisine, rooted in classic French techniques and elevated with global flavours, has earned him accolades and a dedicated following. In 2022, he was honoured with the Gault&Millau Croatia Trophy’ Great Chef of Tomorrow,’ recognising his innovative approach and commitment to culinary excellence.

The menus at Alfred Keller reflect a blend of local culinary traditions and international influences. Each dish is meticulously crafted to highlight the purity of its ingredients, creatively fused with Chef Gollenz’s visionary approach. The Michelin-starred Mediterranean fare celebrates the rich tradition, culture, and artistry of the island, with a focus on the finest Croatian produce, fish, and meat.

The Michelin Guide’s revered stars are awarded based on five criteria: the quality of ingredients, mastery of flavour and cooking techniques, the chef’s personality in the cuisine, the harmony of flavours, and consistency across visits.

Alfred Keller is thus part of Croatia’s most esteemed selection of restaurants, 10 of which are Michelin-starred establishments. Maintaining Michelin-star status is a testament to Alfred Keller’s unwavering commitment to delivering an exceptional dining experience on Lošinj Island and Croatia.
