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

If you love seafood, you must try this place in Salzburg. It is a Croatian Restaurant that has the freshest fish from the Mediterranean,..as well as fresh local trout salmon from the pristine local lakes.There is no menu...You can choose whole fish,fillets, shrimp, scallops on the shell,and have them coked to order.The portions are generous,and the price is incredibly reasonable...

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

We are not the regular customers, but it's been our 5th time there in 1 year. The reason I decided to leave a review is because it's been worse and worse overtime we go, and I have decided to not to spend any money there and to warn people what they will expect in this place. It's your choice if... More

Our nearby hote recommended this place for a great fish dinner and we are so happy they did! No menu is available. You simply pick your favorite fish from the case and all the vegetable sides and it is grilled to perfection! We both relished our salmon dinners served with a beautiful assortment of fresh sautéed vegetables and perfectly cooked... More

This was a very good, reasonably priced fish restaurant with an excellent - and cheap - house wine. We accepted our waiter's advice and had a shared fish platter. This was abundant and came with delicious vegetables. Good and friendly service completed a most enjoyable night.
