On the level - just

We had a late lunch/early dinner here. Salmon tartar strangely enough was made with smoked rather than raw fish, so it was an interesting and good dish just a bit of mis-naming. Mufflon schnitzel was very tasty, wit good fruity sauce. Cheese platter had a good selection. Location is lovely, sitting... read more

Limited options on the menue.the hamburger was really tasty(but they should forget about the 3-4 rather stale crayfish which they serve alongside,which they advertise as surprise!) Chickenliver patee, called liver creme brulee was ok, it... More

A charming part of western Krems is where you find this guesthouse. The interior is typical of the area with lowly arched rooms, creating an intimate atmosphere. The rooms are at various levels so you feel you are moving around in a house with open walls. The service is ok, and the food likewise. What is less charming about this... More

Dined here at midday recently with a business friend. Fortunately a fine sunny day and we took a nice table under a large umbrella ouside just in front of the restaurant. A nice casual atmosphere on this old square in the Stein area of Krems and near the Danube. Perhaps 10 tables outside and a few more than that inside.... More
