After a wonderful day on the Müritz, you should also treat yourself to an excellent dinner. We went to the Morizaner restaurant in the Ludorf manor house and had dinner there.
Ludorf Manor House
The small village of Ludorf is located to the east of the town of Röbel an der Müritz. There are two nature reserves nearby and the Müritz is practically on the doorstep. One of the oldest manor houses in Mecklenburg, the Ludorf Manor House, is located here.
The Achtenhagen family has converted the manor house into a country hotel with 23 rooms and offers excellent cuisine in the Morizaner restaurant, not only to their hotel guests.
As we drive by car towards the manor house, I am really very impressed. A large open area offers an impressive view of the manor house. The building dates from 1698 and was built using the stones of an old castle wall in the style of “Danish clinker renaissance”.
We walk around the house for a while before going to the restaurant. The large grassy area behind the building is certainly inviting in summer.
Later, we were allowed to look around a bit on the upper floor of the house. There is a small historical exhibition about the Müritz, the manor house and the lake district. I learn here that Slavic tribes used to live around the Müritz. They named the huge lake Morce, which means small sea. The inhabitants of the Morce called themselves Morizaner. Yes, and at the latest then I realise why the restaurant of the manor house is called Morizaner.
Don’t just look at the exhibits in the exhibition! A look at the ceiling reveals a unique ceiling painting from the time when the manor house was built. It is beautiful and for me the highlight of our little tour.
After a look in one of the three libraries of the house, we go through the very stylishly furnished house to the restaurant.
Dining in style at the Morizaner Restaurant
A beautifully laid table awaited us. We were to be presented with a 3-course menu that evening and so I was excited to see what the kitchen would present us with.
The credo of the Morizaner restaurant is: traditional cuisine from Mecklenburg brought to new life. Almost exclusively regional products are used here and so the menu changes seasonally and according to availability in the region. Fish from the Müritz plays a central role in the choice of dishes, but meat dishes, game dishes and vegetarian and vegan dishes are also offered.
Our menu started with: Vitello tonnato – tomato bruschetta and aubergine puree. A well-seasoned starter that made us want “more”.
Afterwards, Patrick opted for the pink roasted rack of lamb in rosemary-bacon jus with snow peas and purple potatoes. I tried a small piece of the rack of lamb. The meat was wonderfully tender and soft. Patrick was delighted with the juse, which added a certain zing to the meal.
I chose the poached Müritz fish noodles with crayfish and kohlrabi ragout and potato-dill puree. I was particularly delighted with the ragout. The small pieces of kohlrabi were crunchy but not too firm and gave the dish a certain bite. The individual components of the dish were very well flavoured with each other.
For dessert, we were presented with a dessert variation. The plums and the homemade After Eight ice cream were particularly good. Yes, and we were more than full, happy and satisfied with the last spoonful of dessert. A really successful end to the day.
A visit to the Morizaner restaurant is something for lovers of good cuisine and the stylish ambience in the manor house. The prices of the food and drinks are in line with the level of the offer. We felt very comfortable, had a good meal and will gladly come again to visit the café in summer.
