Great traditional restaurant

My husband and I stopped in for dinner on our only night in Salzburg. The food was yummy and the service was quick and friendly. It is small and most tables were booked, we just got in and only waited 5 minutes for table. A couple walked in 5 minutes after us and had to wait 30minutes.

We booked a table here for dinner ahead of time and it was waiting for us when we arrived. The restaurant is small, charming and well decorated. We enjoyed a traditional, slightly upscale Austrian meal here. Great beer/cocktails. Service was busy but good. Prices were fair. The bar area was packed with locals. It was within walking distance to our... More

It was excellent service and good food. Good location, the traditional Wiener schnitzel is nothing special. The bier was excellent!

Zum Fidelen Affen is a brasserie located close to the Linze Gasse, on the right side of the Salzach but close to the old town. The atmosphere was really great. It is a place where the people from Salzburg go for a dinner or a lunch. The menu proposes a choice of typical courses (the schnitzel for instance), meat and... More

The atmosphere is already great, a real local place with lovely service. The food was homemade and tasty, we enjoyed it. Not sure if this is the best place to have local food but certainly an excellent one.

We visited this establishment twice last year and raved about the atmosphere and the quality of the food so we looked forward to a return visit. Oh what a letdown , the dishes which we ordered were the same as we ordered last year but the quality left much to be desired, too much padding of salad on a dish... More

The staff are genuinely friendly, helpful and love cracking a joke. Service is fast. The food was great. They serve a deliciously warm roll & pretzel basket when you arrive. Both my husband and I had the affensteak i.e. a grilled pork saddle steak on rosti-potatoes, grilled tomatoes, zucchini and cheese with smoked ham and a salad garnish. The rosti... More

This is another good Salzburg restaurant serving traditional food in an informal but nice setting. It is very busy and you need to book a table if you want to eat between 19:00 - 20:30 to avoid disappointment. Otherwise just turn up and wait until a table becomes available. Although busy the service was excellent and the food was good.... More
