Great food... Prepare to wait

Fantastic evening meal For two! Having read the reviews we knew the food would be good but the wait time was still surprising and almost took the good out of the meal. But the food was so delicious and of such exceptionally good fresh quality you would forgive the helpful blonde waitress who looked... read more

We are Americans but we met a foodie couple from Vienna while at this restaurant who told us that this is the best seafood place in town. And the proof was in the eating! The owner is from Slovenia and somehow he gets wonderful fish daily that is immaculately fresh. The white Slovenian wine goes very well with the fish.... More

After reading the mixed reviews particularly about service and waiting time, I was pleasantly surprised to find no problems with either. The waitress was nice and extremely helpful. The appetizer for two was an elaborate selection of antipasto of both vegetables and fish presented beautifully and tasted amazing. Our main dish consisted of fresh flounder for two on a bed...

I have been to Salzburg for the last few years and never managed to get a table here, until tonight that is. I had been pre warned about possible language problems and no menus but if you don't try you don't get. It was an experience that was worth the wait. There were a few language problems along the way... More

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

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 wine in... More

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

This restaurant is peculiar in many ways No set menu , you get what is fresh that day certainly a plus The setting is kind of a market stall with tables outside shielded from the road with greenery Good wine from Slovenia at very decent prices. Service a little slow but acceptable. When we were there large groups of japanese... More
