The restaurant offers poached veal tongue with cognac sauce, beef tafelspitz, duck breast with bread fritters, blue trout, lamb chop, Legrađ beer goulash with spelled, gratin onion soup, homemade pasta, but also desserts like a Legracian cake and an imperial crumb.

Here we strive to satisfy both. We are ready for every guest who likes to enjoy and treat their palates. Everyone is welcome and we are waiting for you with joy and always a ready smile – they say from Fakin. Collaborations have been established with local winemakers and family farms to make the final product truly authentic and original. They hope to expand this collaboration with even more manufacturers and craftsmen over time. In this way, their kitchen is not only a combination of the above mentioned kitchens, but is truly local and contributes to the self-sustainability of local producers, which is of great importance to them because they want not only their business success but success in the community in which they operate.
Hungary, Cakovec, Prelog and Koprivnica are close. The fact is that Legrad is located on important cycling routes and the international cultural route Zrinski Sulejman, and in its yard there is the confluence of the Mura and Drava rivers, the Mura-Drava-Danube Biosphere Reserve (UNESCO) and the Veliki Pažut ornithological reserve. This catering facility sees all of the above as a huge potential for growth and enrichment of the tourist offer.
The rehabilitation and refurbishment of the Legrađanka boarding house took 14 months. On two floors, the building offers 11 accommodation units with a total of 25 beds. The decoration of the rooms is left to the experts, and each of them is decorated in a modern, original, thematic style. The emphasis is on the comfort of the guest, so bright, natural pastel colors and warm wood prevail.
