I was there with some friends, for a short holiday. Traditional Austrian good food, and prices not expensive. The only bad thing was that waiters were not so smiling and propositive to service maybe because we were tourists. Sometimes people don't understand that a waiter is the first thing of the experience in the restaurant. I don't think I'll go... More

The Villacher Brauhof is a restaurant next to the Villacher Brewery complex and probably also associated with this brewery. The restaurant is divided in a separate bar section for having a beer, a restaurant section and a glass covered beer garden. There is a large selection of draft beer, most of the beer is of course several types of Villacher... More

This establishment provided a warm, hearty meal on a cold autumn day. The service was good, the facilities clean. A number of different beers were on offer and the choice of food was also considerable. Lunch was delicious.

The brewhouse has been updated with new tables and fresh paint . The food was excellent and the garlic cream soup to die for . It was very busy but the waiter was still attentive

The best advantage is that the restaurant kitchen is open until 23.00 for all of you who arrive very late in the city of Villach and you can't find place to eat (our situation). The waiter has served us at 22.45 (for food and drinks). Is you want light meal, try their salad with fried chicken with sesame, it was... More

The brewery's food has always been excellent and this has been maintained over the many years we've been visiting. Not only is it good for a family meal but also for special occasions. We have had large family celebrations here with bespoke menus, as well as meals out when we've been in Villach. It achieves a consistently good standard, and... More

Menu has a solid selection of all types of Austrian and Italian dishes with a number of activities such as beer soup, giant Cordon Bleu and giant Schnitzel, in fact never seen them so large before. And it tasted very well. Unfortunately due to rain the beer garden was closed but it looked very clean and well used.

The only wienerschnitzel I saw on the menu said "giant" which I thought would just mean large. It really was giant and I could only eat 75% of it! Tasted great, just the same. Restaurant is only 1-2 minutes from the river (opposite site from the pedestrian street).

Some of the waiters acted quite rude when we visited last night and even handed us the bill before we asked for it, which felt quite odd. They seemed to think that they were there for us and not that the guests were there for them. The restaurant was closing for the night 1,5 hours after we left but they... More
