We enjoyed delicious traditional Austrian cooking and excellent service in a lovely covered garden. Our server was very warm and friendly, giving us help in selecting our food and drinks.

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

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.

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.
