We went for dinner on a Saturday evening. The place felt homely and comfortable. Prepare for huge portions! We had the Salzburger schnitzel and ribs. Normally I find schnitzel quite dry but they fill it with a sauce with cheese, bacon and mushrooms which adds moisture and flavour. The meal also came with garlic potatoes which were boiled whole but... More

Very helpful staff, delicious food, really enjoyed. We got the Salzburg Schnitzel (amazing), and the roast pork (really good meat, tender, and tasty gravy). Good Austrian food, excellent atmosphere. Very relaxed. Good place for a meal if you are in the neighbourhood.

Visited this restaurant with a group of 8 friends. We asked our hotel to recommend a good local restaurant, and we were not disappointed. The weather was beautiful, so it was lovely to sit outside in their 'beer garden' We wanted to try all the local specialities, so asked the waiter for some recommendations from the menu. The food was... More

The hotel receptionist recommended this restaurant. It is not easy to find but well worth persevering. The dining area was full of locals which speaks for its quality and value. We chose roast pork and the mixed grill. The food was well cooked and the portions very generous. The service was friendly and extremely efficient. It was a delight to... More

We were looking for a quick easy meal with friends, and this place was recommended by the hotel. 5 minutes walk from the railway station; not really the nicest area to walk through, but we were rewarded by the food. Entering we were surprised by the smoking room, which you have to walk through, but luckily decided to stay anyway... More

Met a friend who suggested this place. This is supposedly authentic local Austrian cuisine. I would call it more "Comfort food" type but with an Austrian local touch. The menu is well- priced. It is walking distance to the Salzburg train station.

Our hotel found this restaurant for us because many other places were already booked. We were not disappointed although it took us longer to walk there than we expected. The only negative is that the smoking section is so smoky that it does bleed over into the non-smoking area. The food here is great and the service is fantastic. We... More

Exactly what we were looking for... A typical Austrian restaurant with big meals for a good price! Always good to eat in a restaurant where you also find the locals.

I agree the place is a nice place as the wiener schnitzel was good and the portions are great but the ribs were average. I would rather have had the schnitzel. Soups are broths and are more salty than flavourful. Good if you in the area but I think there are probably better places that I've yet been to that... More
