My wife and I came to the Alter Fuchs on our first night of a four-night stay in Salzburg. After a long-drive to Salzburg and feeling a little under the weather the Wedding Soup perked me up, while my wife had the pork in beer gravy with dumplings, which was hearty and delicious. The service was good and we enjoyed... More

Had the pork in beer sauce with nockerl dumplings. My dad had the large roasted pork joint, still in the bone. Price reasonable, very well seasoned and tasty food, great indoor atmosphere (seems to be themed around fox hunting, with stuffed foxes and tails as decor) and fair speed of service. Would definitely recommend.

Had a meal here during our recent visit to salzburg. Took a while to get given a menu to look at, they were not that busy, we just seemed to get overlooked, not a great start to our experience, did not feel too special. Once we ordered things looked up, our new waitress was efficient, smiley and knowledgable, good english... More

We enjoyed the traditional Austrian food and lively atmosphere in this little restaurant, which was packed with tourists when we got there. Despite that, the service was friendly and prompt and we had a wonderful experience there.

Alter Fuchs came well recommended by some fellow tourists so we went to check it out. The service was very poor. While my dish looked very nice when served, it tasted terrible. The few vegetables on my plate were cold and incredibly soggy, the stack of meat tough/stringy and incredibly salty. My friends dish had 7, yes 7, medium size... More

Whet around 9pm when getting quieter, but had to stop waitress and ask for a table that had laid empty, after a wait got menus but left quickly before we could ask for drinks, waitress came back and nicely took order, after a wait food came and made the waiting worth while. Asked for second drinks that never came until... More

We reserved the table beforehand, as during the night it was quite crowded. We were seated but not given much attention by the waiters/waitresses. The atmosphere is excellent for a late night dinner/drink, and it seems to be quite popular among the locals as well. The food was quite typical Austrian the it did taste very well. It's worth a...

Went here to eat at the suggestion of our hotel manager. We will not return. Was seated in the outdoor courtyard and had to move due to the. noise of obnoxious neighbors. The courtyard, while quaint, echoes noise like a concert band shell. We moved indoors and ordered our meal. It took almost an hour to arrive. My wife ordered... More

We arrived for a 7:30 reservation and it was very busy. Seemed to slow down a bit around 8:30. I had the Beef Goulash, which was excellent, but then, I had never had it before, so I have nothing to compare it to. My husband had the Wiener Schnitzel and he said it was very good. Have no complaints at... More

We were a group of about 15 and we were seated at a large communal table just at the restaurant entrance. The menu offered traditional fare and there was a good beer and schnaps selection. The food was very good all round and at a good price point. The beer was widely well received too, as was the quince schnaps.... More
