What jumps out at klosterkeller is the Big-screen telly with sky sports! Means I only miss matches I deliberately want to miss. The Managers, Jorg and Uwe are efficient and friendly. Jorg speaks very fluent English and seems very well-traveled so foreigners will not feel unwelcome and can discuss any topic with him. The garden area is cozy and just... More

Superb location, nice view, scenery, the food is a bit modified to suit the international package tours, so not so much austrian as you would expect, but the strum wine and cheese was excellent and as I said, the scenery is one of the best in the entire region

We ended up at this very nice place by chance: we were refused to have an afternoon break in another restaurant. Nevertheless, it turned out that this rustic restaurant offers an excellent atmosphere and great food. Not easy to find, just keep on searching. It's on Google maps, if you zoom into the area.

We visited this restaurant with a large group while part of a Back Roads Bike Trip in Durnstein. A large table was reserved for our group and our preordered dinner consisted of many courses of local cuisine. The fish course was my favorite, and I was surprised when that was not the entree! We drank a lot of local Wachau... More

We were only in town for a day and decided to eat here for dinner. They have a lovely outdoor seating area. For the chilly evenings, don't forget to grab a fleece blanket by the entry to use on the outdoor picnic tables. Food and drinks were very reasonably priced. Wait staff is slower than in the U.S. and Canada,... More

Our guides on a Backroads trip recommended this place and it delivered. The dumpling filled with meat were incredible, especially the sauerkraut with bacon that came with them. We also LOVED the platter of meats, cheese and spreads, though I'd suggest ordering for a smaller number than your total party (it's per person and the amount for 5 of us... More

Great wines, very very good meals for prices that won't ruin you. Waiters are not very communicative, it takes time when they look at you, waitress very good.

Unfriendly and arrogant service, but great location with a nice view on to the danube and very busy if weather is fine, need to reserve if you want a table outside!

We participated in a wine tasting at the wine cellar as part of a river cruise tour. We had five wines in a very atmospheric cellar. The host explained the wines in a very engaging and informative way. The wines were delicious and went from a very light Gruner Vetliner to a great light dry red wine. It was a... More
