One of the best meals I've had in Austria

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... read more

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.

In this place you are on the save side. It seems to be the best place in town, and this also shows in price. But therefore you can have lunch looking at Melk abbey, provided the weather allows for that...

Stayed here on business in February and then visited for lunch again in August while visiting Melk Abbey. Food is very good and reflective of the local fare. There is the front bar area which was open in February and a more formal restaurant further back which was closed during the week in February but open in the Summer visit.... More

We were two families of six each for dinner - the service was excellent and the food delicious. The kids enjoyed the kids' menu very much and we tried a few of the traditional Austrian dishes - everything was very well made. Definitely recommended after a day of touring the abbey and the area.

The vegetarian bread dumplings with chanterelle mushrooms and cream were delicious and so filling we had to have a nap afterwards. My son had the breaded chicken and he swears it was one of the best in Austria!
