Dined here in early January. Made a prior booking via email which was responded to quickly and confirmed. The restaurant is located across the river from the Alstadt and is a really nice setting. Very nice inside, good layout and it was really busy which is always a good sign. Food is traditional Austrian and I had the best Wiener... More

We dined at Zum fidelen Affen this evening after reading the reviews. It lived up to its expectations. I also followed a recommendation to have the Affen steak. A pork fillet beautifully cooked and served. The servings are very generous. The staff were very friendly and not overbearing. I would recommend this restaurant in the new city of Salzburg.

Made reservations here for dinner (good since others were told there was a two hour wait). Some small tables and then others that were more family style (we shared). Good staff and a wonderful, warm atmosphere. The food was very good - fresh salads and the Affen-Steak is definitely worth trying. Very reasonably priced and a nice little neighborhood to... More

All meals were one of the best experienced in Austria. Excellent dessert selection, go for the multiple dessert selection to taste all. Place was very crowded but service was still great. Worth the experience.

A great place! Very warm, with kind and efficient service! The food was delicious and it came very quickly, as well as the beer and the dessert, which were exceptional. I strongly recommend to leave some space for the sweets. The price was quite fair. We spent around 20 euros per person, with a main dish, a beer and one... More

The food was traditional Austrian but with good choices for my vegetarian friend. I had the goulash which was excellent. The place was busy and servers cross-cover each other. Beware they provide a plate with a warm roll and warm pretzel when you sit down, but charge you for it (3E). Would return.

We met the proprietor who was doing some work outside and he broke off to show us the restaurant and provided us with the menu(In English) to show the variety.A... More

Very close to downtown, in a pedestrian street. A bit crowded, it is good pass by and make a reserve. When sitting out side you may have to share the table. Good meal, but not special at all. Nice service.

We visited Salzburg for a short break recently and found this absolute gem of a restaurant - we enjoyed it that much we ate here twice. I had the goulash and the duck (on the specials board) and both were absolutely delicious. Staff were extremely helpful and on our first visit they arranged for us to share a table with... More
