It's a pleasure for us to welcome you in our restaurant.
The Storno House, a protected monument in our days, has a history of more than 500 years.
The rooms of our restaurant were formed under strict monument protection controll.
The original values and beauties of the building have been preserved and there is a friendly
and familiar atmosphere inside the old walls. The cross-ribbed vaulting, used rarely in residential
houses, the fractional coats of arms revealed on the ceiling of the star-decorated room take us back
in time and offer an amazing sight while dining. This is a family-run restaurant and we have been
here to await visitors as well as inhabitants of Sopron since 1986. We are grateful for your confidence
and are looking forward to welcoming you again.
Enjoy your meal and have a pleasent time with us.
Kis Family & Team
The two-storey palace-like Baroque residence was the property of Miklós Haberleiter and his family in the 15th century, and King Matthias was their guest in the winter of 1482-83, while he was besieging Vienna. In the 17th century, the building belonged to the Sárkány family, from which it passed to the Festetiches. The house was bought from the Festetich family in 1872 by Ferenc Storno, a chimneysweep who became a painter and art restorer. This work was later continued by his sons.
The exhibition presents the collection of this artistic family in the rooms they used as a residence in 1875-1984. The interiors furnished with antiques and works by the family members reflect the historicist home decor fashionable in the late 19th century.
On the site of today’s Corvinus Restaurant stood the first apothecary’s shop in Sopron, the Black Elephant, in the 15th century.
