Traditional interior with traditional food

This is a very reasonably priced restaurant with traditional food. It has a cosy wooden interior but there is seating outside. It doesn't provide a fancy menu and it is suitable for families. It provides excellent value for money and the service was excellent.

Beer wasn't cold. Risotto was good. goulash was just OK- beef abit tough and dumplings not great. Our 6th day in Austria and probably our least favorite meal. Service average too.

To start with fantastic food, don't get me wrong the food is truly lovely. But you also are paying for services. We were first sat on the corner of a table with another couple and one random bloke, and we're promised our own table as you'd expect for the money. We drunk our drinks and when ordering food asked about... More

We went here after reading the tripadvisor comments, what a disappointment. Yes the restaurant is well situated on a nice square. There was even room on the terras. So far so good. The menu was limited, but hey we were there to have some traditional dish, so no worries. Service was a bit 'cold' without any friendly welcome. We had... More

We had heard so many good things about this place that we were mildly disappointed. The location, atmosphere and service were all excellent, but the dinners were somewhat ordinary. Everything was very good, but there was nothing to excite us. No exquisite sauces and lovely flavors. Not that it was bad, just very good.

I am rather sorry to write this review. Too many of these excellent ratings and it will be harder than ever to be seated! Zum fidelen Affen is a small restaurant on 'the other side of the river' from Old Town. Other reviewers have mentioned you should make a reservation, and yes, that would be advised. We were lucky, though,... More

We were lucky to find a table and some sunshine while dining here in Salzburg as the weather had been incremental at best in the month of May. We found the restaurant from a Google search being very near our hotel and it looked like the locals were enjoying themselves on this sunny evening. We were intrigued by the Trummer... More

We prebooked the table because of experience from last night - fully booked. Very arrogant service even then. We got a table for four, devided by two ladies. A couple came 5 min after us and got a 4-persons table just for them - no prebooking. The food was nothing special, like in a pub, a real disappointment. We don't... More

We read about the restaurant in a guide book and were concerned it might be quite touristy but didn't feel that was the case. Delicious food, great wine, and not a rushed atmosphere. Would recommend booking as the first day we tried to walk in and it was full. Very happy with our choice of having dinner there.

My son and I had small portions of the Gulasch vom Rind with white dumplings (stuffing) and my wife had the Beiried vom Premiumrind (steak) with a bottle of the house red ZWEIGELT Pollak, Unterretzbach, Weinviertel, Lower-Austria.
