Don't be put off by the exterior, this is a cosy and friendly little fish restaurant with excellent fresh fish (no menu you just choose your fish from the counter), surprisingly good Slovenian (sic) white wine, a helpful waiter and a jolly owner who cooks. In a city full of schwein and rind fleisch, this is an oasis - and... More

After reading a number of reviews on here I was still quite unsure whether we should visit this place or not (we did, so no need to worry). Upon the suggestions of some reviewers we booked in advance (thankfully, as this small restaurant is always full, even on any other week day). Once there we were informed that we could... More

It's a long time since I have been able to rate a restaurant so highly! Pescheria Backi was recommended by our hotel and on arrival at the back end of a horrible thunderstorm we landed on this green shed! We discovered a Narnia- like dining room decorated nautically but with a beautiful Austrian dresser housing the glasses. We settled in... More

Stumbled upon this place on a day trip to Salzburg. What else can I say but wooooow! We had the calamari/squid and a whole fish to share, needless to say they were both excellent. Some of the best fish I have had in my life. Spoke with the owner, who was fluent in 3 languages, excellent and boisterous host, we... More

We ate there twice on our trip to Salzburg, and my only regret was that we didn't eat there every night. Fresh seafood, changing menu depending on the catch, great staff! Go!!!!!!

Being non-conformist is not in my style. Having secured a reservation my wife and I were promptly seated only to be instantly approached for drinks order. My glass of wine resulted in a whole bottle being presented and opened. I'll be generous and blame on a language problem!!! Next we were ignored for a while the other diners (locals) were... More

If I ever opened a restaurant (which is unlikely, because it's far too much like hard work), it would be this sort of place. No menu, just what is good on the day, trust me. It might seem quite expensive for what is basically a wooden shack with no frills, but you're paying for good fish and good cooking, not... More

We read a lot of reviews and quite like the idea of ordering fresh fish dish, so we go there with preparation that no price, no menu. For us, indeed it is challenging to make orders without knowing the price. We ordered two white wine and water. And then asked the waiter for best recommendation. He recommended fish soup (... More

Had lunch there with a friend as she's spotted it on her walk between her hotel and the congress centre. What a great find! Was a bit surprised to find they had no menu - you pick from a refrigerated display counter with a good selection of fresh seafood. I pointed at a white fish not knowing kabeljau meant cod,... More

This is a small and BUZY place. We had reservations at the last minute, it was a good thing!!! The fish is fresh and whatever is in the front case is the choice you have. Once the fish is gone the restaurant closes for the night. Mom & Pop place with 2 waiters and one other kitchen helper. The service... More
