We ate here twice. The food was very good. Excellent sausage and venison. Good beer. Now...beware: the man who runs this place does not suffer fools. He will turn you away if you are not polite and pleasant. We caught on after the second visit. I liked the food and the service and the... read more

We've had cold beers, outside, on a hot day and we've had splendid hot meals inside on cold days. The host is the most genial of gentlemen and the traditional food (cooked, I think, by his wife) is mouth-watering. Cold beer on a hot day needs no promotion.

Orania is located across from the train station & maintains a very traditional atmosphere. The menu was comprehensive & catered for all tastes. It's Austrian cuisine at its best, especially recommended are the venison dishes & "Eispalatschinke" for dessert (warm pancake filled with vanilla ice cream & chocolate sauce)

We walked in to book a table with our children and the manager a short bald guy was rude and unwelcoming. We would not recommend this restaurant and certainly will not eat there ever again. My husband had visited this restaurant before and was quite upset at the treatment we received! :(

Best in Badgastein! We ride our mountain bikes off road all the way from Schladming and this was an amazing way to celebrate. It's about freezing outside so an order of young Venison Shnitzel and a couple of Shladminger beers hit the spot. The service was superb and the food amazing. The atmosphere is authentic Auatrian and the location is... More

The location of this restaurant is perfect. You step off the ski bus, chair lift or train and the smells waft out from it ensuring you make it there for one meal on your trip. Although we had trouble getting in because the host told us they were closed because we were too drunk (hadn't had more than 1 beer... More
