Too bad the food wasn't quite as good as the beer

This place has a great location in the heart of the Innsbruck Altstadt. It also has a great atmosphere and is a fun place to go for a meal and a drink. The service is also friendly and excellent. Although I later discovered Elferhaus has several specialties they are supposedly known for, the meals... read more

This is a bar but it does have a back room for non-smokers. Not classically family friendly, but they have highchairs and we were very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and the food was very good, bar food, but high quality bar food.

I took an outside (covered) table quickly as it was raining heavily. Didn't expect too much as I just went for the 5 sausage plate. Nothing special but reasonably priced. I noticed a good selection of beers and tried a couple. Very busy inside, looks to be popular with local people. Front section is smoking allowed with a separate smoke... More

We had lunch there. Lots of time for people watching as the service was quite slow. I ordered a pumpkin soup - a local and seasonal speciality - and found it delicious, although I would have liked a few more croutons.

We ate lunch here upon arriving in Innsbruck and we liked it so much we went back again for dinner on another day. The best potato salad I have ever had. It was warm and creamy, served with arugula on top. The wieners were excellent, high quality. Great beers. You can't go wrong here.

Elferhaus is one of several pavement cafes/restaurants in the heart of Innsbruck. We were attracted to it because the food on diners' plates looked good. And looks weren't deceptive. We got very generous portions of Wiener Schnitzel with fries. I asked if mine could be chicken rather than pork and though this wasn't a menu item, they were happy to... More

Located in the heart of Innsbruck's Old Town this restaurant offers a fantastic selection of both Austrian and international beers as well as good cheap Austrian food. I really enjoyed the pub-like atmosphere (No need to order at the bar though!) and I will certainly come back.

We just came back from the restaurant. Although the food was very good and the atmosphere pretty cool for a sunday, the service was just plain terrible. I've never seen anything like it before. The waitress charged us for something we didn't know would be charged. I ordered a hamburger, and immediately asked what came with it. She told us... More
