Everything, and I mean everything was great! The menus was opulent and the vine list to match it. We ordered venison and stag dishes and they were exquisite. We enjoyed some local wines as well. And of course could not leave without trying an apple strudel!

We had dinner in the restaurant while staying in their hotel and was totally surprised on the quality of the food and the service. The staff was very friendly, attentive but not overbearing. The food was excellent and local. The environment was elegantly quiet.

We loved this restaurant and were excited to try some authentic Austrian food. We tried Elk ragu, veal schnitzel and Salzburger Nockerl and they did not disappoint. The service was very friendly and servers were happy to speak English and even be patient while we practiced some of our German.

We ate here on our first night as guests at the hotel. A very hearty meal, delicious. The staff also pitch in and work at the hotel - I swear one of the waiters also carried in our luggage earlier in the day. We loved that intimate feeling of the hotel in general and the restaurant is the same way.

Located in Old Town, this authentic Austrian restaurant serves some of the best food in Salzburg. Don't miss the wiener schnitzel, as it is the lightest, best-prepared I have had. Everything on the menu is very good, and reasonably priced for the quality and atmosphere.
