“The stove was not working on the day we were there”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

Great location and atmosphere, but the staff was poorly prepared for the unusual circumstances. We went there for lunch, were greeted, and seated and given menus and asked for our drink orders. After our beers arrived the waitress said she would return shortly, turned out to be more like longly, Upon her return we were advised that only eight items on the 4 page menu were available. None of which would be consider appropriate for a filling lunch on a cold December day. We felt obligated to stay since we already had our beers.

“Good local food, huge portions!”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

This place can be packed, and for a good reason. The food served is mainly typical Austrian fare of excellent quality. Wiener Schnitzel is one of the best I had in Austria, and also the pork and beef dishes are excellent.
It is located on the ground floor of the hotel with the same name in the Old Town.
Would highly recommend this place, but I understood that the place (hotel and restaurant) will change owner in January, and I am not sure what will happen to this place.

“Great place, changing locations!”
Reviewed 24 December 2013 via mobile

The restaurant was wonderful! In my party, we tried the Truffled Potato Soup, the Goulash Soup, Roasted Pork with Sauerkraut in White Beer Sauce, the Goulash Dinner, and the Apple Streudle. ALL of the dishes were great, but the pork and the streudle were the best!! The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the atmosphere was cozy and charming. We wily definitely be regulars if we were local!

“Goldene Ente in Salzburg is wonderful, but hurry, it's closing”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

We had a wonderful dinner of pork schnitzel, beef goulash and the best dessert anywhere - Salzburg Nockerln (a tzpe of souffle with raspberry sauce). The waitresses were prompt, and cared about the fact that we were sitting ourselves upstairs, so they worked hard to move us to just the right spot downstairs. Goldener Ente is located along one of the beautiful side alleyways that makes Salzburg so much fun to walk around. We went because of the great reviews on almost all websites. But sad to say, we wanted to pass along that they will be closing January 6, 2014. They will be reopening as a new restaurant, Zum Zirkewirt, at Papagenoplatz (whether the wonderful dessert makes the transition remains to be seen - perhaps the subject of another future review by someone?) Meanwhile, if you're going to be in Salzburg before they close, we strongly suggest to stop in.

“Thanksgiving Dinner in Austria!”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

My wife and I only spent the day in Austria and we were both thankful we came here. Food and atmosphere were authentic and amazing. The truffle soup was absolutely delicious. My wife had turkey schnitzel and I had the goulash. We left stuffed and extremely satisfied.

Service was prompt and friendly. The atmosphere was cozy. We both left feeling we experienced a little more of Austria having eaten here.
