The food wasn't great - greasiest spaetzle I've ever had - but the service was quite good and the location was ideal. They also had more choices for beers (dark, light, white, etc.), which is great when you've had enough Zipfer for awhile. ;) But the food was just average to sub-par - skating by on it's location, I think....

I was just looking for a little place to grab something warm to eat when I came upon Elferhaus in the historic walking district. Great vibe! A place that I'd love to meet up with some friends and have a drink. They had a lunch menu and I ordered the biergoulash, which with a drink, ended up being a little... More

Contrary to previous reports, this bar seemed to be non-smoking. Perfect for us as many bars in Innsbruck are surprisingly smoky. Good choice of beers, local and world. All really cheerful and helpful staff. Nice mixed clientele and atmosphere.

To all the non-smokers: After entering the bar just proceed to the separated part in the back behind the glass door, which is smoke-free. I decided to invite a few people to a small and casual birthday party at the Elferhaus. Normally I would concur with the mixed feelings of many of the other reviewers, and I chose the Elferhaus...

Many establishments in Austria have indoor smoking, this is one of them. We sat at the front and never told there was a non-smoking area. We ordered two beers and it seems they were brewing them just for us (because it took forever). The beer I ordered was Munich-helles type and taste was ok. I could not smell anything because... More

I only go to Elferhaus once in a while and typically, the experience goes like this: I struggle to squeeze past the bar, navigating through a dense cloud of smoke & colliding with everyone's shoulder. I finally reach the back room (smoke-free), only to find out that there are no free tables. After standing somewhere in the way with my... More

A nice place which most of the time is pretty crowded. They offer a big range of different beers (only drawback: they sell 0.33 Hoegaarden only) and some nice food too (from € 3,--). The atmosphere is nice, sometimes a bit busy. It is divided into a smoking and a non-smoking area. For people who love a good pint it... More

Great bar this! Just tucked to the side of the golden roof open all day and well into the evening. Have been to Innsbruck a few times and this bar is visited everytime. Table service is prompt and efficient, no need to queue at the bar, food is also excellent although there isn't a great deal of choice, but then... More

We ate here by chance during our stay in Innsbruck and were pleasantly surprised. It is right in the centre of the old town and has a great atmosphere. We wanted a table outside but they were all taken and decided to go elsewhere but the menu on display and the cosy beerhall atmosphere brought us back. On entering he... More

This is basically a beer place, and they have a good selection at competitive/reasonable prices (you are not limited to Zipfer, which is the case many places). They have an OK menu, fairly priced. You can get an English menu, but compare it to the German as there's a lot more stuff on the latter. I had some really good... More
