Great menu

This is a lovely restauarnt, in the warmer months you can dine outside, or by the cosy bar. The menu is excellent, you pay a bit more, but the quality is very good. We had the lamb with vegetables, the meat fell of the bone. Good selection of local wines at reasonable prices.

My wife and I stopped in for dinner beer and wine while walking around Melk and loved this little place. The service was great and the beer and local Riesling wine were great.

A friend and I were looking for lunch after visiting the abbey and exploring the little town. We happened on this place. It was excellent. The food was very good, the service was friendly and efficient, and the atmosphere was charming. Even though we spoke only English, we had no trouble communicating. Altogether a very nice experience. Strongly recommend.

This restaurant offers a lovely atmosphere with great service. The menu had lots to choose from, mainly Austrian in style but very well executed and not just the usual schnitzel, goulash and backhendl.

It is hard to find really quality restaurants with original menu in Austria - the overwhelming majority just sticks to the usual few dishes. Zur Post is clearly one of the exceptions: great kitchen, lots of original recepies ( my favourite is the roasted octopus with avocado - pumpkin salad), comfortable tables, great service. The local waitress and the Hungarian... More

We stayed for 4 nights. Friendly and helpful staff, comfortable bedrooms and smart public rooms. We ate there most evenings and were very well looked after. Would stay again.

We stayed at Zur Post. We enjoyed our stay here pleasant atmosphere at breakfast and dinner the food good to very good. The rooms simple but comfortable we had a room with a view of the Abbey which was special but not essential. Good location close to the Abbey and right in the middle of the village.
