I have just tried to make reservation for a group of 16 people for dinner. At first it seemed to be fine, however once they heard the company includes families with kids the tone has changed and all of a sudden there was no availability. Pretty disappointing. I made a reservation to The Alter Fox instead. They were happy to... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant, which was one street over so an easy walk. It was a lovely, warm August night so we wanted to sit outside, as did everyone else. Fortunately, our hotel had made a reservation for us because it guaranteed a nice table for two hours! Someone had decided to sit at our table and they were... More

This place is a must-see when visiting Salzburg. Built into a century-old building in the historical downtown of Salzburg, the Fideler Affe (loosly translated as Jolly Monkey) surprises with is stone pillars, arches, and classic restaurant look, giving you the feeling of being set back in time. Despite the classy environment, the service and cuisine is par excellence and is... More

Visited his restaurant after walking in the rain for awhile. I must say the ambience was great and warm. The service was prompt, courteous but not exactly very friendly. We had a wiener schnitzel and a monkey steak ... Both tasted good and nice. From where I come from, the schnitzel actually is considered pork chop (the not so fancy... More

We went on a somewhat cloudy summer evening. Still the outdoor seating was nice, would have been really nice if it was sunny. Service was very good, the food likewise. Very good food, in fact. It was pretty busy but we did not feel unattended. Recommended. Server spoke English and they accept credit cards.

As in the title, the pork schnitzel, according to my dad (who has tried many schnitzels in Germany and Prague), is the best he has tasted to date. Nice, thin, tender and crispy with a cranberry sauce to serve. I however having had too much meat over the course of our trip opted for a vegetarian option. The handmade ravioli... More

Didn't meet my expectations. We planned our trip to here as I had, that day proposed to my girlfriend. Read a lot about it on trip advisor, it all seemed great. My friend had emailed and booked ahead to ensure a table and a bottle of wine would be waiting for us. None of the above happened. After that everything... More

The food was really good! The traditional Austrian dishes were delicious and the dessert plate was fantastic. The only bad thing about this restaurant was the really slow service.

We went here with high expectations, given some of the excellent reviews on TA. The food was fine and the service friendly, but it didn't reach the high expectations that we'd set. In contrast - the day before we left the Alter Fuchs saying "wow that was so tasty" - on this day we left just saying 'that was OK".... More
