Lovely, cool and quiet spot, not easy to find but worth it. My husband and I enjoyed a homecooked meal here (freshly steamed but still crisp broccoli after a much meat-based tour of Austria) that while not 4 star gourmet fare, tasted wonderful and was graciously presented. It felt like you were at someone's home, getting a warm, healthy and... More

From the moment you enter this delightful 'chintzy, restaurant, you're welcomed by the warm staff. We were seated at a window table and felt as if we were in somebody's front room! The waiter was amazing, one of the best, who knew your needs before you did! Dressed in a black DJ with a dickie bow tie, he was the... More

Close to the face that overlooks the old town, this charming restaurant has a cosy dining room, elegant and comfortable. The service is courteous and professional. Good the wines by the glass, mostly the gruner veltliner and a blend of gruner veltliner, chardonnay and muskateller. Fairly good the food (asparagus au gratin tasteless, lamb loin not exciting, excellent the crème... More

Salzburg is a great city and an authentic Austrian meal is only appropriate. The restaurant is very old school/traditional which is part of the experience. The service was great and did not have any issues on the delay as others have reported. The food was great. The starters of soup and trout were light and tasty. The main courses were... More

We booked a party of 10 and had a large room to ourselves, which made it quite a reserved atmosphere. The waiter/maitre d was very pleasant and obliging, the food was average/good and seemed to take a very long time.

The restaurant is very cozy and homey. Very old world charm. Food was ok but pricey for what you get. Service was attentive but not intrusive.

Seems that foreigners are relegated to the warm and stuffy dungeon. The waiter was friendly but the service was awfully slow (2 hours for only one course). This distracted from the quality of the meal itself ... which wasn't that great either. Disappointed but I guess I shouldn't be given that it was a recommendation from the stuffy and staid... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant. The food is lovely -but certainly not low price. You can't fault the service at all but for me what was really missing this time was the ambience. It was just too quiet and you felt you couldn't talk to each other easily. A bit of background music would have made such... More

With guidance from the staff at Hotel Goldener Hirsh (and a look at TripAdvisor reviews), we had a simply outstanding dinner at Alt Salzburg this evening. The service was attentive and professional, the ambiance was quiet with an air of comfortable sophistication, and the food was simply outstanding: the potato & mushroom soup and the seafood soup were perfectly prepped...

the meal was fantastic, but it wasn't cheap. Our waiter was very helpful and funny. We did one of the prix fix meals which was great to try all the different courses and I ordered the lamb. Walking distance from the old part of town and about a block or two toward the elevator to the castle is a little... More
