This restaurant was highly recommended to us by our nearby hotel and also from the reviews we read on line. Maybe we caught them on a bad night, maybe we gave off a bad vibe, but if so, we don't know why. Yes, we're Americans, but we were polite, quiet and not at all demanding upon our arrival. 2 couples... More

No menu, just pick the fish you want from the display case and they prepare it for you. Very fresh fish and good selection. We had the anti pasta appetizer sampler before our fish and it was really a meal in itself. We also had the recommended house wine which I seem to recall came from Slovenia and was excellent....

I had read the reviews, I knew what to expect, and my expectations were completely fulfilled by our meal on September 15. Superbly prepared fish was just what my wife and I wanted, and that's what we got. Our waiter was aloof, but not to the point that it detracted from the enjoyment of the meal.

This restaurant was very much as we expected from the website. Modest but cosy premises and what seemed to be an extended family running back and front of house with the quality of food and customer service and value very much at the center. We had the mixed fish grill to share and their excellent white house wine. It's located... More

This is a throw back restaurant run by a family. Step in and gaze at the amazing fresh fish. Then imagine you can have whatever you want. Work with the crew - oh the prawns look unbelievable but so does the branzino - no problem - expect an amazing dish, with the fish cooked to perfection. We also had their... More

A late night trip out of our hotel in the poring rain meant that we were not heading too far away from home base. So upon finding that this restaurant was still open, we went in not knowing what to expect. It was wonderful - no menu - just a fine array of fresh fish on display. It was cooked... More

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
