All participants will meet up at SEEDS Restaurant, created and run by Felix and Lucia Eppisser. Originally from Switzerland, the couple aimed to create a quality restaurant in a place of natural beauty. Tucked in a corner of Inya Lake, SEEDS features a lush tropical garden and a stunning view over the water in addition to a mouthwatering menu. Felix and Lucia prize delicious, creative food that combines their European roots with the rich local flavors. Whenever possible, materials are sourced from organic, sustainable sources. SEEDS is an effort borne of the local community and that is reflected in every aspect of the restaurant, from the food to the design to the service. Additionally, Felix, Lucia, and even their local director, Ko Lin Lin, also have the running bug. Felix has participated 3 Albatros marathons (with his 4th coming summer 2020), and is looking forward to hosting other running enthusaists embarking upon a similar journey. 

 

Our evening will take place outside to enjoy the wonderful weather in November and the marvelous scenery. We'll begin with a beautiful cocktail reception out on the lawn, where participants can choose either a creative sparkling cocktail or an alcohol-free mocktail. A variety of canapes will be served while we mingle and enjoy the spectacular sunset. 

Around 18:00, we'll settle in at our tables for what is sure to be the dinner of a lifetime. The menu consists of four courses plus some additional treats, all curated by Felix, a Michelin-star chef. While your taste buds explode from joy, savor the conversation with your fellow marathon participants amidst our candlelit tables. The proposed menu* can be found below, but please note that due to ingredient availability there may be small changes.

*A vegetarian / vegan version of the menu can be made upon request. Please add a comment when booking if you would like this option so that we can give the restaurant due notice.
