“Not a good choice on that day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

During our whole 3 week trip to Europe our only rain days were the two we spent in Salzburg. We picked St. Paul's Beer Stub'n based on the TA reviews. It wasn't our most pleasant experience. If it hadn't been raining we might have enjoyed it more. Our first mistake was to walk there from across the river. When we turned down the alley we thought we had made a wrong turn but remembering some of the reviews, we kept walking up the hill until we found it. We were seated outside near the wall overlooking the street which on a normal day would have been delightful but on this day the smell of garbage came wafting up from the street below (probably again compounded by the rain). We hurried through our meal as we shifted around in our picnic table type seats under the umbrellas to avoid getting soaked. My meal was actually quite good but the experience wasn't. I'm guessing it's a better place for lunch because of the views?

“Great food and festive atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We almost passed by this place because it was a little dark and there was some smoke but we were happy we made the decision to stay. The starter tray was delicious and the other bar food was just as expected. Our waitress was friendly and the atmosphere was lively. It seemed like a local place that we were lucky to stumble upon.

Very relaxed, friendly, good beer, wholesome local food. Lovely peaceful location, awa from the hectic crowded Aldstadt, but yet only a few minutes walk.

“very cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

You would never know it exists. Very quiet from the street- and then boom- 100 of people sitting at tables under trees, drinking beer and eating. Food is okay- plenty of choices for all. Beer - great. Downfall couldnt find still bottled water for my 13 year old. She doesnt drink soda. Lovely atmosphere- great people watching spot and a taste of austria. Surprised how many people were out on a Thursday night

“Grossly over-rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

We booked this restaurant having chased the Trip Advisor #3 rating. Although a lovely location and cool surrounds, the food was ordinary by any standards. Great place to go for a beer and to eat beer snacks. If you are after a wholesome, genuine Salzburg dining experience, head to Barenwirt.
