I had veal schnitzel, my wife had cordon bleu, both are German/Austrian classics, but were ordinary compared to same dishes in standard restaurants in our home city of Dresden. Also, visited Enoteca Settemile nearby and sampled superb Austrian wine for ~4.50 per glass, while the Old Fox wines were insipid for ~3.50 per glass. Spend the extra Euro and go... More

Our party of 7 (4 adults, 3 young children) were seemingly lucky enough to walk in off the street at approx 18:30 and get a large table, as shortly after it was full with people being turned away. Despite this we were not hurried at all. Staff were friendly and helpful in understanding the dishes, although the added benefit of... More

The restaurant offers great Austrian food. The place gets packed at around 7 pm so be sure to get there early. We tried their pig knuckles (very similar to the ones they serve in Manila), sausage platter, and some salad. In general, everything tastes authentic. They also serve good Austrian beer. It's a place worth trying if you're looking for... More

it is not easy to get a reservation, but we managed to get one. When we arrived we had to wait because our reserved table was occupied! Finally we sat down, but the table is sooooo high, and so are the chairs, that for people who are not tall like me, this is very uncomfortable. Other than that the place... More

If you are looking for authentic Austrian food, you will find excellent food with a relaxed atmosphere here. The service was excellent with the waiter being attentive. And of course they speak English.

Probably the best homemade apfelstrudel in Salzburg, served warm with very soft whipped cream and fresh strawberries.

During our three night stay in Strasburg, we ate here twice. On both occasions, the food and beer were excellent and staff were friendly. The atmosphere was good, being a mixture of locals and visitors. We booked for both nights and were glad we did because even at 7:00 pm, the restaurant was getting full and people were being turned... More
