Dining Facility 

The dining is situated in the convent, a short walk from the Retreat Center and offers good home-style meals. Other than providing alternative desserts for diabetic persons, we are not able to cater for exclusive or specialized diets and cannot guarantee that our kitchen or dining room is free from allergens such as peanuts etc. (There are 2 refrigerators in Mariawald and a microwave, so it is possible to bring foods from home and keep them there) Our maximum seating is 44 persons. 

Mealtimes for groups of 6 or more: Breakfast 8:00 am Lunch 12:00 pm and Dinner 5:30 pm. Our caterers do not have flexibility to change mealtimes since they require a set schedule to prepare meals, serve, tidy up and return home.
