We always try and eat at the Wirt am Gries when in St Gilgen. The food is always top class. The hosts are among the nicest people you could meet. The New Year menu was as usual exceptional and good value. If you are in the area, you should try this restaurant.

Excellent 6-course NY dinner at 57 euro per person. Variations of traditional food made up to modern trends. Mid-sized portions to keep you healthy and not overstaffed. Drinks are extra. Excellent service.

We enjoyed the Food and Service so much that we ate there 3 times during our week in St. Gilgen! I had the best schnitzel I ever tasted at this Restaurant! We also had beef and fish and duck and practically licked our plates clean. No complaints on the service, very nice people, amazing family, and they know their food... More

The meals we tried (boiled beef / stuffed chicken) were absolutely delicious and well cooked. The menu had changed between our visits, so we had different desserts each time and each one was extremely tasty (especially the nougat... More

Really good quality food - fine-dining in a traditional Austrian atmosphere. And they have a Schnapps trolley!

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel, and they were so right to guide us here. The welcome is warm , the service is efficient and friendly. We tried a number of dishes over the week, their Wiener schnitzel was the best we have ever tried. Lake fish was fresh and well prepared, venison brilliant and the puddings generous... More

Wirt am Gries is located in St. Gilgen. After a long day of enjoying the beautiful view of the mountians, riding on boats, and a bit of walking, we were pretty hungry. We read a review about Wirt am Gries and decided to check it out. The beer garden comes first before the entrance to the restaurant. The beer garden... More
