Meet Andreas

Andreas was born and raised in a small town right outside of Vienna, Austria. He found his passion for cooking at a young age while helping his grandmother cook meals for the family. After completing his apprenticeship in Vienna, Andreas embarked on his career, which led him around the world. During this time, he gained experience working with many ethnic cuisines, ingredients, and techniques, which he has been using in his cooking ever since.

After years of traveling, Andreas and his wife moved to the Roaring Fork Valley, where he pursued new culinary adventures. From working as executive chef at the Aspen Meadows Resort, to turning Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro into a famous après-ski destination, and later opening a European bistro, Allegria, in Carbondale, Colorado.

With his newest adventure, Alterra Aspen, Andreas’ passion for cooking has been brought into the homes of his clients where he continues to cook flavorful dishes and provides an unforgettable experience.

Chef Andreas Fischbacher


  • Where do I start with thanking Andreas and team? My husband and I visited Carbondale in January with intentions of finding a place for our wedding dinner. We wanted to keep things local and intimate and Andreas greeted us with open arms with hospitality and service as soon as we walked into the restaurant. Andreas, we cannot thank you enough for making our wedding meal the best ever.


    This has been by far the best meal during our trip to Colorado. Every dish we had, from appetizer to dessert was flavored perfectly and it is clear that Chef Andreas puts a lot of passion into his restaurant. I ordered the "Osso Bucco" and the meat was so soft and tender, the halibut steak over the local salad was seared to perfection. We look forward to coming back for dinner on our next visit!


  • Owner Andreas, and staff went above and beyond to make our party memorable. Rented out 1/2 of the restaurant for a party of 30 and they came up with a perfect menu with varieties along with great pricing. Also accommodated and worked closely with me to ensure adequate space and needs are met for our guests. Wonderful service along with delicious food and a perfect atmosphere for the birthday party. Thank you!


    The Burrata salad to start was tangy, light and creamy with fresh young mozzarella cheese. For our entrees I had the Elk Ragout paired with a big Barollo and my wife had the Pheasant along with a Pinot Noir - scrumptious to say the least. Our 8yr old claimed that his spaghetti was the best he's ever had so that right there says it all. Thanks Andreas and staff for making our Valentine's Day a special one - we'll be back again and again!
