I have to start by saying that the food was ok here, but the service was horrible. My friends opted for chicken wings with barbecue sauce. I had a vegetarian dish, spinach dumplings. All the food was ok. When we ordered our meal we also ordered their dessert specialty which is supposed to be great but which takes some time... More

We found this restaurant, sat outside and the atmosphere was really nice. Food was great as well as a limonade and coffee. Im giving 4 stars as we were waiting quite a... More

I have never been treated worse than in this restaurant. Very impolite, some of my friends was basically thrown out of the restaurant. They were two minuts late and I had already ordered food. Do not eat here!!!!! Also the food was not very good either !!!!

We stopped here while walking through Salzburg, as it is a lovely setting and on the pavement so we were expecting big prices. The quality of the food was exceptional but when the bill came we were pleasantly surprised, only 56 euros for two mains, two desserts and a couple of drinks. Great value for the heart of the city...

We were wandering around town looking for a place to eat and happened upon Elefant. We both enjoyed our meals of salmon and chicken. I would have to say that it was one of the nicest meals we had while in Austria, and the price was pretty reasonable. When we asked about the restaurant name, the waiter brought us a... More

This restaurant served lighter fare that was very welcome by our family as we had been eating many Bavarian meals. The salads were particularly good. Pricing was fair, i highly recommend it.

My meal was delicious and I rated it in the top 3 meals of a 6 night stay in Salzburg and Munich. The next... More

This was our first Dinner in Salzburg and not the best by far. Food was ok but my wifes Gluten and Dairy free order arrived with a cream sauce on the fish. As a result she had to wait for her meal to be prepared again and this was the only restaurant in Salzburg the staff failed to respond to... More
