Delicious food; superb service

Have visited this restaurant each time I'm in St Gilgen .... It's always been good, esp. its regional dishes ... service is superb. Prices are reasonable for such quality food

Waited 15 mins for a drinks in the empty restaurant. Then suddenly the place became full of guests and private party started. After a hour waiting for a food, gave up and left. If the owner doesn't warn guests about the private parties and wanna chase two rabbits, he shouldn't work in the restaurant biz or in any other biz... More

Being out of season a number of the restaurants in St Gilgen were closed. Fortunately Wirt am Gries was open as I was keen to try it given the good reviews on here. We visited twice and the food was good with reasonable pricing. Service was also very good and although the menu was only in German the waiter was... More

Interesting decor: modern twist on traditional Austrian style. Quirky features and toilets that would be worth paying to visit...! Menu includes some very original and delicious items. Staff are very welcoming and attentive. Some reviewers complain of waiting but we appreciated being given decent time to digest each course.

We ate here as a couple and enjoyed the meal, the service and the atmosphere. The place is clean in all areas including and especially the restrooms. This is a true Austrian style establishment. The food and service were both excellent. If you are looking for that type of experience in st Gilgen this would be a good choice.

While staying in Sankt Gilgen to visit their beautifull Christmas Market, our hotel´s restaurant had a days rest and recommended us the Wirt am Gries. We ended up going there twice. Great experience in service, food, friendliness! Hard to beat! The place runs like a clockwork and that still with a genuine smile! Now that´s hard to find anywhere in... More

Being an Austrian living in Australia it was great to see Martin and his team doing what they do best and that Austrians still love being great hosts. The ambiance and decor where fantastic, the food and wine amazing and the toilets surely worth visiting. Overall a fantastic experience once again, thank you guys.

We were staying nearby and read about this restaurant here, Thank you all for your recomendations. The owner was very kind to us and the treditional local austrian food as well as the atmosphere and service were excellent!!!! גרנו באזור וחיפשנו מקום לבילוי ערב נעים עם אוכל אוסטרי טיפוסי וטעים. ההמלצות שקראנו כאן עזרו לנו להחליט. אכן נהנינו, בעל המסעדה...

Two dinners during a week's stay in St Gilgen. Both were just first-rate and we particularly liked the efforts to help us through a menu, most of which we could not understand! two glasses each of complimentary schnapps at the end of dinner #2 were particularly welcome. Highly recommended.
