Quite near our hotel was a little, street front cafe type restaurant that for some unknown reason, seemed appealing to my husband. One evening we four wandered in (early for Europe) and were able to be seated as long as we vacated at a given time. With several interesting linguistic problems, we ordered a diverse selections of appetizers and entrees... More

Try this place please. Great Austrian food, nice vibe and locals that enjoy them selves. Watch out for the chairs out side. They fold and I pinched my finger badly. Just the second guy that they I was told!

There is nothing fancy about the place or food. Both are good, probably better than average, but I would not say very good. Prices are reasonable. Service was friendly and helpful in English. All around a fine experience, but if you are looking for something nice, this is not the place. They do allow smoking in the bar area, which... More

If you are looking for the perfect Austrian atmosphere, don't miss this restaurant. Try the smoked fish mouse and the mushroom goulash mit knodel.

Great dining experience there. The food was so cheap and the portions were huge. The flavour was so good and attentive. We ordered schnitezel, beef meat with croquettes and rolls of asparagus with bacon. A salzburger knockerl dessert. We ended quite full without paying too much, there are much more expensive places in Salzburg, this one is quality/price excellent, you... More

Zwettler's reminded me of a typical Austrian restaurant in a cabin in a small mountain village. As soon as you are inside, you forget that you are in the middle of a city. The food is what you also get in small Austrian villages: basic food, but prepared with excellent ingredients and a lot of love. Zwettler's had all the... More

The Zwettler's - http://www.zwettlers.com/ - was recommended to us by our hotel. Turned out that this was a excellent recommendation. The food was excellent. We had the Skewered Pork with Paprika paste. What a treat that was. The staff there is great! They are very attentive, friendly, and welcoming. We had to share a table with others, which is common...

The restaurant staff are very welcoming and the ambience inside positively Austrian. We'd recommend the clear beef soup with sliced pancake; house goulash with bread dumpling and 1l of their excellent wheat beer to wash it all down. Definitely pay this place a visit!

We had a delicious meal with friends here. The food was hearty and flavorful. Enjoyed a beef goulash and spinach dumplings which were unique and tasty. Loved the interior of the restaurant. Very warm and charming and it seemed as though it was a popular dinner spot for locals. Service was good.

We enjoyed our large portions here of traditional Austrian food. We we're put on a table with some other people but it was large enough so not much of an issue.
