We are staying in Zell am See for a week and so far have eaten twice at this restaurant - once for lunch (sat outside) and once for dinner (weather cooler and showery, so sat inside). On both occasions the food has been excellent and the service faultless. The traditional Austrian menu is varied and extremely good value. Overall highly... More

Could not fault the food, always a good sign when all the locals are eating in it and most tables were taken.

We looked for a restaurant last weekend 26.04 and because it was between the ski season and the start of the spring season, most places were closed. The Steinerwirt was one of the few that were open. We were in a side room of this traditional Austrian restaurant, and it had a wonderful atmosphere with old benches and tiled oven.... More

I have eaten here many times- usually in a family or large group. Love the food, the service and even though a bit pricey it is worth it. They also have a lovely kids room open until 9pm so u can enjoy a glass of wine at the end of the meal.

We popped in here for dinner during a two night stay in Zell. It is very old fashioned which we liked as there is a lot of character. The room we were in had some other diners but would have benefitted from some light music just to ensure conversations were not overheard but this is my only slight criticism. The... More

The food was extremely tasty and the servers were all fantastic, they make sure you have an excellent time. The second dining room felt slightly like an eating hall rather than a restaurant, with little décor and not great amounts of atmosphere, however the service made up for it. We only ate there once out of the week, as the... More

Didn't really know how to rate this one... One one hand - service, food and prices were not bad at all, very helpful stuff, good selection of local wines (really good ones), large menu featuring Austrian traditional dishes... all seems nice. I took a steak, it was ok (not great, but ok - really made in a local way). I... More

Thank you very much for your thoughtful words. Your review really started a very interesting discussion among us: On one hand, Steinerwirt is a very traditional restaurant, which attracts locals and guests alike. On the other hand, we do see ourselves somewhat as ambassadors of Austrian cuisine and wine. This is a very thin line we have to balance, being... More

Went there with a bunch of mates on a skis trip. Had the local stuff and this was recommended as the best in town. It did not disappoint. Enjoy the ragout of deer, a glass of wine and change from 25 euros including tip. Get there early or book.

We were very happy to read your recommending us to the Tripadvisor community. Thank you for pointing out that it is good to book in advance - especially during the peak ski season, the restaurant is often very busy. We hope to see you again and send Kind regards, Johannes Schwaninger More

The food was excellent - I had trout, my husband had deer - delicious. Unfortunately the service wasn't great - slow to take our order and slow to top up our wine glasses. Worth a visit though.
