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

Hard to get good seafood in salzburg. Thats what i thought. But this restaurant has proven me wrong. The dishes are absolutely fantastic and the athmosphere is nice and cozy!! A definite recommendation.

We spotted the restaurant on the way to our hotel and decided to give it a go the same evening. There was a free table so we were seated immediately. To our surprise there was no menu (which means that we didn't have any clue about the prices, for example) but the waitress spoke very good English. A single waitress... More

this restaurant is a little off the tourist route. It was recommended by our hotel and we absolutely loved it. Don't be fooled by the inauspicious appearance because when you go inside you will enter this small wonderful restaurant experience. No menu, no wine lists but great staff who will provide excellent recommendations on great seafood to eat and wine... More

You MUST go there. From the whistling chef to the outstanding waitress to the house wine to the beautifully spicy seafood and fish soup, this place puts Salzburg on the sea. You will love it!!! For your entree, have the chef choose. amazing.

We went to search a restaurant for a quick dinner and ended up in this restaurant. No menu but only fresh fish and for a very friendly price. Highly recommendable.

We was in this restaurant in the end of our journey to Austria. This restaurant was not one of the best. Just medium, but not bad. Fish was more greesy for us. Bread for extra price (rip-off!). Service appropriate, without any issues. Price is good. Interior about nothing.

Read many reviews and was keen to go to this restaurant for the experience! This small fish restaurant is very cute with a nautical theme and a casual atmosphere. Unusually the menu does not have prices as the produce is fresh and available at market price for the day, therefore whatever is 'offered' on the day is usually the best... More
