Mindful eating at Miraval Austin

Culinary & Dining

Ever delicious and always included in your stay.

The food you’ll eat at Miraval Austin celebrates the city’s distinct tastes and textures, featuring fresh ingredients from our very own farm. Our balanced dining options reflect our core pillar of mindfulness—at every meal, in every moment.

Here, eating well is not about denying yourself, but about slowing down and taking the time to enjoy and appreciate food—not just what it tastes like, but where it comes from and how it’s prepared.

 

Allergies & Dietary Restrictions

If there’s anything we need to know about what you can and cannot eat, please reach out to our Experience Planning team in advance of your stay. Allergies and other restrictions will be noted on your profile so our chefs can take care to accommodate your needs.

Mindful Eating at Miraval

Learn. Cook. Eat. Enjoy.

Choose from a number of inspired options—whether in our restaurants, poolside, on a bench under cedar trees or in the comfort of your room. And don’t forget—at Miraval Resorts, food is intended to be an experience. We have a number of hands-on and hands-off culinary activities for you to explore.
