Met with friends on a Saturday afternoon for lunch in Melk and decided, based on the positive reviews on TA, to eat at Zur Post. The menu is limited, and overpriced. But that we could deal with. One waiter in particular spoiled the experience for us. He was generally rude and unhelpful, but hey, we all have bad days. Maybe... More

Arrived without reservation. They found us a place at the hotel's outdoor terrace within the hotel. Just beautiful. The service staff were excellent. .. great service in English when required. We shared a desert and they didn't even blink... they just offered to split it into 2 plates. The food was incredible. Don't know where it gets its $$$$ rating... More

Had dinner on a cold June 'summer' day! Restaurant was a bit chill but the food and service were good. Wine list was all local but would have appreciated being able to buy a bottle rather than carafe.

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. I enjoyed one of the seasonal fish dishes which was cooked perfectly. There were some lovely wines on offer as well. Our waitress was excellent, friendly and... More
