The Bärenwirt, located in the historic district Mülln, is one of the oldest inns in Salzburg. Hospitality plays an important role since 1663 and the traditional inn is run with a lot of personal commitment. At the Bärenwirt you enjoy traditional Austrian specialities and beer of the Augustiner Bräu, the oldest brewery of Salzburg. We recommend our fried chicken, which is known as the best one of Austria. The sunny terrace with view onto the river Salzach and the Kapuzinerberg, one of the two hills in the center of Salzburg, and the cozy guest rooms invite you to spend a relaxing and pleasurably time at the Bärenwirt. If you are planning a festivity with your family and friends the Bärenwirt provides the right offer. The package is called “Feiere dein Fest” and includes roast pork with dumpling and „sauerkraut“ and beer, which is drawn by yourself.

Goulash...

On a cool day is was a great place to stop for the local beer and goulash. It was very good... Some of the best. Know, bread costs more and butter costs more. :)

Despite this place getting good reviews, I wasn't aware of it until I strolled passed by accident recently. It gets very busy but they seated us on the terrace straight away with no reservation. Great food and attentive service.

Away from the high tourist prices of the Old Town, this restaurant offers a variety of Traditional Austrian food and some more recent additions -- including their famous fried chicken. Which is fantastic. Definitely recommend a visit here if you like to get away from the tour groups and tchotchke shoppers. Walk along the river after dinner for amazing views... More

Advised by locals as the place to eat Traditional Austrian food, were weren't disappointed. Excellent quality food, very helpful and attentive staff - definitely worth eating there during your stay.

Excellent, traditional cuisine. Where the locals go. Superb soups and pork dishes. Go hungry! We ordered roast pork for two and couldn't finish it. Walk back through the Monch Park overlooking the city.

Our guide, Naomi Mogil, highly recommended this restaurant to us and even made reservations. We arrived early and thankfully they were able to seat us but it was crowded the whole time we were there. My wife had the wiener Schnitzel and I had the dumpling and pork. Wow, the dumpling was enormous and we were able to share it.... More

We stopped in Salzburg for lunch on a recent roadtrip, and had a very pleasant meal at Barenwirt. The frothed beer soup was particularly delicious, the service was extremely friendly, and we loved the gummy bears that came with the check!

Ate here during a recent trip to Salzburg. It's a traditional Austrian place and very nice inside. Cosy atmosphere and very comfortable. Food was very good, I had half a chicken that was in a breadcrumb coating. Really good flavour and portion size was very generous. They also have the Augustiner Beer from the brewery just few hundred metres away... More

We got inside accidentally, we were extremely cold and hungry, and this place was like a cure for us. :) It's so typical, cozy and comfortable! Staff was polite. And the food was amazingly delicious!!! Portions are big and tasty, combined with the good beer, it was more than expected. Prices are reasonable after all. I highly recommend this place!... More
