Husband and wife run restaurant, great food and the waiter is incredible!! The place seats maybe 30-40 people at a time, I would recommend a reservation. We had our hotel (Hotel Auersperg) make a reservation for us on our second night in Salzburg. We were told they have fresh seafood and they prepare the food and they do not offer... More

We visited this restaurant Friday before Christmas. I saw it advertised on Trip Advisor and had good reviews. We definitely weren't disappointed. It was very busy and we didn't have a reservation, they managed to find us a table. It is rather cramped but the service and staff made up for this. There is no menu, you simply choose your... More

We were celebrating my husband's birthday in Salzburg and I was on the lookout for a nice, cosy restaurant with lovely food. Pescheria Backi was the perfect choice! Even though there were no free tables when we walked in, the staff managed to get one from somewhere and set it for us. They were very accommodating and the fish is... More

Backi is a very charming guy from the balkan. And he knows how to prepare fish. He offers a big variety of always fresh fish from the Mediterranian and a nice selection of fish appetizers. During summer you can sit outside. Ther is a busines lunch available during the week for a fair prize. Always very busy so place a... More

As a pescatarian for a number of years (eat fish but no meat) this was a great find. Slightly unusual format in that there are no menu cards. Staff show you the fish, you make your selection and it is then grilled by the chef. We opted for a sample starter to share, which was a large plate of assorted... More

Can't recommend this place highly enough. Casual, friendly atmosphere. You pick your fish and have it grilled, accompanied by vegetables. The fish was absolutely incredible. I asked for the vegetables to come without potatoes and they gave me a huge pile of courgettes, carrots etc. The staff are incredibly accommodating. The wine was great and it was all exceptional value.

Super great fish place! Amazingly friendly staff gave us free wine while we waited. The fish was picked from a window and then perfectly grilled. Just yummy all around. We ate, we drank and we smiled - a lot. Fun atmosphere + tasty food + great prices. I had the tuna- my friends had other fish - branzino I think... More

This is the first restaurant I have been to where there is no menu and no wine list. We didn't really know what to expect but decided to give it a go anyway. Our understanding was that we would just be served what was good. Unfortunately we never got to taste the fish (which looked delicious going past us) as... More

I'd like to like this kind of places, but Backi, recommened by our hotel staff, was a dissappointment. Wine was delicious and service friendly. BUT we got some kind of lake salmon (?) and it tasted muddy. Once I complained, I was (friendly!) told that the chef is tasting the same fish and it's ok. Really, it wasn't. Other fish... More
