Description: The Bärenwirt, located in the historic district Mülln, is one of the oldest inns in Salzburg. Hospitality plays an important role since 1663 and the traditional inn is run with a lot of personal commitment. At the Bärenwirt you enjoy traditional Austrian specialities and beer of the Augustiner Bräu, the oldest brewery of Salzburg. We recommend our fried chicken, which is known as the best one of Austria. The sunny terrace with view onto the river Salzach and the Kapuzinerberg, one of the two hills in the center of Salzburg, and the cozy guest rooms invite you to spend a relaxing and pleasurably time at the Bärenwirt. If you are planning a festivity with your family and friends the Bärenwirt provides the right offer. The package is called “Feiere dein Fest” and includes roast pork with dumpling and „sauerkraut“ and beer, which is drawn by yourself.

“Bear is good”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Augustiner beer (brewed approx. 200 meters from Barenwirt), good foor, great staff and sooo nice little terace. If I understood correctly, they even give you three hours of free parking.
Go for Salzburger Nockerl while in Barenwirt, and don't miss apple strudel.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

I wanted to eat off the traditional tourist beaten path so found this restaurant on TripAdvisor. This place did not disappoint. I ended up eating her twice during my three day stay. The gulasch soup appetizer was amazing. The gulasch entree (they are actually different) was good though not as great as the soup. The dumpling was huge. The pork schnitzel was very good as well. Service was good. Would definitely recommend for Austrian fare.

“you wont leave hungry !”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

We were recommended to come here by our hotel and loved it .

Had the feeling of a really nice pub.

Very friendly service - and the food is very tasty.

You wont go hungry either as the portions are very generous. I am 6'4 and love my food and I couldnt finish the roast pork/sausage/sauerkraut/dumpling dish and for c.15 euros amazing value

“Skip the Fried Chicken, Order the Schnitzel”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

If you are looking for a traditional Austrian menu, good service, cold beer, and a nice atmosphere in Salzburg, this is your place. Slightly off the beaten path of the tourist sights, it is worth the short walk to enjoy a meal in a more peaceful setting. Patio seating is on the river is still beautiful despite a somewhat obstructed view. The Barenwirt menu touts their "famous" fried chicken, but the dish was quite disappointing. The highlight of the chicken was the accompanying potato salad, skip the chicken, order a side of potato salad instead. The Wild Boar sausage was very good; crispy outside, juicy inside, and the boar flavor really stood out. However, the true highlight was the Barenwirt Schnitzel; pork stuffed with ham, cheese, and mushrooms. The rice served with the dish was very plain, but why fill up with rice when there is dessert to be had. Bonuses: English Menu, Credit Cards taken, and open for Lunch AND Dinner.
