Wish I could give 3.5. The lakeside seating is great and the service was very good. Food was just ok--looked better than it tasted. A bit on the expensive side too (though that's uber-touristed Halstatt for you). They make their own beer too: again, fine but not spectacular. Certainly not on par with modern craft beer. You could definitely do... More

This review is based on my own experience during the time I was in the restaurant for my dinner. Staffs are very nice to us, food is tasty but there were 2 groups of Chinese travellers talking loudly that disturbs our conversation. Expected staffs to tell them as to decrease their noise a little bit but they seemed to be... More

This is a lovely spot right under the trees at the edge of the lake. Beautiful view relaxing at tables watching the swans. Great fish and apple desserts. Quite busy on a the weekend but staff work hard to keep up.

Perfect place to have a meal. Situated on the lake under the chestnut trees. Very busy place and service can be slow, but with the view, you don't mind. The food was delicious and we managed to have dessert too. Reasonably priced.

We went in Bräu Gasthof three times during our stay over the weekend. The food was very delicious especially the goulash soup. We even made friends with Dobromir who made our dinners very enjoyable. Thank you and we will be back.

We visited Hallstatt on a Sunday and a lot of restaurants were closed. So we were so lucky that this one was open at 7ish when we were searching for a place on a snowy cold evening to have a nice meal. The food was great along with the beer and service. The cozy atmosphere made it also memorable.

The BRÄUGASTHOF is an Austrian restaurant located on the banks of Lake Hallstatt near the center of Hallstatt, Austria. Hallstatt is located on the western shore of Lake Hallstatt about 50 miles southeast of Salzburg, Austria (it’s a very easy drive from Salzburg). This restaurant has outdoor tables with umbrellas right next to the lake and I think they also... More

Wandering around Hallstatt in late afternoon, we noticed this eatery on the waterfront so decided to pop in. We literally stood in the entrance to the restaurant for a good five minutes and were ignored by every server that passed us. Undeterred by the crowdedness of the place, we found a couple of chairs at the bar to wait for... More
