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.

This is a great place to eat and the atmosphere is charming. Martin, his wife and all his staff work very hard to make your experience a positive one. We always make a point of eating there when we are visiting St Gilgen..

I know it sounds weird to start a restaurant review with impressions of the bathrooms but that's what I'm going to do. It was taking a little while (perhaps more than a little while) for our dinners to come so I went to the men's room which was modern in an alpine way and spotless. I came back to the... More

Beautiful garden setting in the middle of this beautiful town. The service was excellent, enthusiastic and prompt. The food was great and the local wines are something everyone must try. Very fresh and full of flavour. The potato soup was the favorite of our family. The family owned little restaurant is always packed with people and the waiters and waitresses... More

We were in St Gilgen for 6 nights and ate here our first evening. The food was so good that we broke our rule of returning to a restaurant while on vacation for a second visit. My husband especially enjoyed the venison stew and the pork medallions should not be missed. The restaurant takes advantage of their on-site garden for... More

On our first visit to St Gilgen in 2010 we had dinner @ Wirt am Gries and was pleased with the food, ambience and the service. On our return visit in April, we decided to patronize it again and it did not disappoint. Wirt am Gries seem to have spruced up the whole exterior and it is brighter with more... More
