We hadn't realised quite what a gourmet and well respected restaurant this was when we booked it last minute at one of our overnight stays travelling across Europe. However we were very pleasantly surprised. The ambiance is perfect, relaxed but also quite formal. The food was universally superb... read more

We were travelling to our hotel from Werfen castle and wanted to manage some lunch. We found extraordinary Obauer restaurant. It is perfectly managed in every detail including very well-trained service, interiors and of course dishes. The chef loves cooking for sure. Unfortunatelly, I was driving and there was no chance to have wine. Wine card (or rather book )... More

Restaurant Obauer is unparalleled dining. The Obauer brothers have won multiple awards but to experience it in person is a delight. The amount of thought and detail that goes into each specially prepared bit is amazing. They even have unique china for individual bits, with sauces to accentuate flavors. The amount of food is generous considering it is of the... More

I am eating at the Obauer brothers for 35 years now. I have travelled a lot and I enjoyed countless fine restaurants. This is the best. The Sommellier (Alex) is the highest decorated expert, the service is attentive yet descret, the food is regional with the highest quality ingredient. If you want the best food, here is your spot.

Having been to the ice caves nearby, we were looking for a simple lunch. We saw a review by someone saying 'best meal ever'... I don't know if it is the best ever, but it was delicious. The staff are extremely friendly and the chef came out to meet the family to ask our thoughts. A real treat!

Went to see the world's biggest ice caves and "accidentally" found the best meal we have ever had. We have all travelled extensively and found the entire experience and cuisine to be wow wow wow. Don't miss it. South of Salzburg, take the train the Werner. All in town know it, easy to find and can walk to it from... More

A very classy restaurant in an attractive village overlooked by the Festung and at the start of tours to the nearby ice caves. Can't comment on the Festung or the caves - we only went there to eat. And well worth-while it was too. This is formal, imaginative Austrian cooking with some modern twists, but not too many. Well into... More

After a walk at the Ice Caves and a long day we stumbled on Restaurant Obauer. The fortunate turn of events led us to this fantastic hotel restaurant. Slipping in after 9:00 PM, we we're met by a team of waiters, sommelier, interpreters and a menu frankly second to none. We've been fortunate, and have traveled to some great locations,... More
