One of the best meals in Austria

We were looking for a restaurant that offered more than the traditional Austrian fare. There is no menu here, so we let the waitress order for our group of six. We got an amazing platter of assorted fish. You need to be patient, it took a very long time to serve us. We drank a lot of Slovenian... read more

Good food well cooked. A fish restaurant with little else. Although obviously attended by local regulars. Seems good for a beer.

A different style of restaurant serving fish. As far as we could see this was primarily catering for locals. The service was prompt and pleasant and the food was very good. The pricing was also reasonable.

Went there really early at 6pm when they just opened. Ordered only a main course - seafood platter for two. Took them 50mins - 1 hr to prepare it. It was really worth the wait! It's so simply garnished with salt and pesto. You can taste the freshness of the seafood. The meat of all e fish is so thick... More

Service a little slow but acceptable. When we were there large groups of japanese... More

After eating heavy food for days, we were thrilled to find this place. We asked to see a menu, but instead were lead inside to see the food chilling in the cooler. The fresh fish on displayed quickly had us sold. We did wonder about pricing as we also ordered a bottle of wine, but thought - we are on... More

After two weeks in Europe eating traditional fare we were looking for somewhere to get seafood and we went here on Trip Advisors recommendations. We didn't have a booking so had to sit inside ( would have preferred outside given it was a warm night) so we would recommend booking. The inside of the restaurant has a nice cosy feel... More

I was in the mood for some fresh seafood and read the positive reviews on TripAdvisor and they didn't steer me wrong. PROS * Super fresh fish and other seafood. Inside, they have a food counter filled with fresh fish, squid, and a variety of other things. I watched while one lady came in and bought a sting ray. *... More
