Huge Beer Selection and Good Food

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

Elferhaus is more or less like a bar near the Golden Roof, but actually the food was very good. I ordered the ribs with salad, and it costed not more than 12 Euro, with 400g quantity. The sauce was so great and I enjoyed it. Also the beer with lemonade was very good! The atmosphere was really nice , just... More

Very close to golden roof this is a peacefull corner to drink good bier and talk peacefully. The service is quite good... we dont eat. The beer quality is high and inside you can find an old fashion style and this was very good to me.
