The Ocean Restaurant is VILA VITA Parc Resort & Spa’s fine dining signature restaurant.

The Launch

Upon the crest of the ocean’s waves,
lay tastes of secrets locked within.

The Crew

To our crew sings the vast blue ocean with whispers of a locked-away treasure.
A voice so deep and ancient emotion, a ballad to all our pleasure.

Hans Neuner

Executive Chef

Kurt Gillig

The Deck

Her surface in sheets of rolling white
endless folds upon blue swimming shawl,

The Deck

Where over glides our ship, our crew,
to serve this elegant stage.

The Deck

She hides her theatre within the waves
who deliver the wonders she plays,

The Deck

Where fleeting, fragile glances of light
Mirror gently in the turn of her halt.

The Landing

A seashell song, a salty kiss from her fruit
Shaping our lands and painting our mood.

Onward we sail

Ocean opens in 2007, with Hans Neuner as Executive Chef.
In 2009, it earned its first Michelin star, and in 2011, the second.
