Traditional in a very refined way!

Even though we were there out of season there was not a single empty table. No wonder! Food was high quality and delicious. Service on top of it, was extraordinary. Nice selection of Austrian wines. Line caught trout - "Forelle" was so deliciously prepared, so was local chanterelle soup... read more

just back from ski trip to Zell am See. stayed at Erlhof for first two nights. This is very typical Austrian hospitality and experience. The property is delightful, great location near the lake with fab views and is teaming with history (the real Von Trapp family used to own it..!!) The current owners (husband and wife team) are very pleasant... More

I've been assured by many locals that this is one of the best restaurants in the region but our visit was extremely disappointing. Perhaps it's better in the ski season. The room and decor is nothing to write home about, typical Austrian but here lacking in any personal touches or sense of occasion. The food is very ordinary for the... More

We had driven past the Erlhof a number of times whilst on our holidays in Zell am See (we have an apartment there) and thought that it looked a lovely place to go. My husband was then trying to find somewhere nice to take me as a surprise for my birthday and took a risk on the Erlhof based on... More

We stumbled upon this place when we biking around the lake of Zell am See. Far to nice for us being all sweaty and thirsty, we just had a coffe during the day. But we came back 2 days later or dinner and were not dissappointed. We had a 5 course "spring-menu" with matching wines. A fanatastic experience. We had... More

Thanks to a recommendation by the staff at Schloss Prielau, we had a wonderful dinner at Erlhof. It has a cozy, classy, but not presumptuous atmosphere, despite highbrow (but not overly fancy!) cuisine. The soups were memorable, the sauces rich, and the entire meal was definitely the best we had in all of Austria. I highly recommend it if you... More
