We got to Salzburg after a three hour drive under heavy snow coming from Wien. Just check in at the hotel, unpacked and went out to explore old town Salzburg. On our way we walked by this restaurant which we had already picked on tripadvisor. The place was packed but we checked anyway. Hostess asked if we minded to share... More

We got the last table available here at about 7pm. Pretzels were brought to our table. I've never fancied them but I gave them a try and did actually enjoy them with the fantastic dark beer I had. Salty bread isn't something I thought I would enjoy but I did. We had the Wiener schnitzel and turkey salad, both of... More

Ate hear during our visit before Christmas. The food was excellent, couldn't fault it. There was 6 of us & we all enjoyed our meals. The staff were friendly & efficient & the restaurant was packed. Would recommend booking a table as they were turning people away, even those just wanting a table for 2.

Really, in a 9 day trip, we had the best service here and the nicest waitress. The food was really good typical Austrian. Nothing too fancy but reasonable, good service and great food.

Good location-easy to find, especially if you are near Hotel Hofwirt. Nice atmosphere and clean. The food was ample and tasty. We had wild boar and venision and it was delicious. The service was good and one might need a reservation as it is always full.

After half a rainy day wandering around Salzburg with our two kids, the Old Fox was a welcome break. The atmosphere (as well as the temperature) was warm and welcoming. After a drink and menu review, we ordered our lunch and upon arrival we were not disappointed. Healthy portions, great taste and efficient service combined to make this a most... More

Friendly service and large portions of good hearty meat and dumplings! We enjoyed the pork knuckle and schnitzel. Couldn't manage dessert but it looked good. Recommended.

We visited the "Old Fox" after spending a rainy day trudging around Salzburg. It was just what the doctor ordered after getting cold and wet. This is Bavarian comfort food at its best, served in a warm amber-lit dining room with local patrons and exceptional servers. We had no reservation, but were still accommodated because it was relatively early. Try... More

Good value for money and good tasting local food with big portions. Located at the City Center of Salzburg, was delighted to have found it after a whole day of touring the City and the surrounding Villages.
