I ate at Wirt am Gries during my stay in St. Gilgen. The food was delicious and beautifully presented and I cannot fault the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff who went above and beyond. I ate in the beer garden and my food was so good that the wasps wanted in on it to! The boss (I think... More

We stopped at that restaurant on our way back from Salzburg to Grundlsee, and it was recommended to us by the tourist center at the entrance to St, Gilgen . The tables are within a beautiful open garden . Service was not less than amazing. We specifically asked that our Veal Schnitzels will be prepared with Olive Oil and not... More

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

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
