“Absolutely fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

We chose to eat here after researching it before travelling to Austria, with high expectations. We were certainly not disappointed. The service was very friendly and we were able to reserve a table in the courtyard, which was perfect for a summer's evening (there were quite a few flies, mind!). Our waiter was very friendly and efficient and was prompt in taking our order. The beer was good and the food was even better. Two of us had the mixed grill and one had Schnitzel. The mixed grill was wonderful - a huge portion with plenty of vegetables. The Schnitzel was also excellent. I would certainly not hesitate recommending this place and the prices were good. When in Salzburg, I would definitely be up for visiting again.

“Amazing food, don't sit inside if it's hot out!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012 via mobile

We had a fantastic meal at Alter Fuchs. The salads are no joke, and neither is the ham hock. Would give this place five stars it weren't for the slow service and oven temperatures inside. We really loved our meal after an appetizer and entree and wanted to order a dessert, but it took the server nearly thirty minutes to make eye contact with us. The heat got to us so we left early. Too bad too because I am sure the desserts were as good as everything else!

“Traditional Austrian food in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

This restaurant was excellent. The cost was reasonable and portions were huge! They have menus in English and the staff speaks English. There are many locals there so it isn't touristy like the places right in the heart of old Salzburg. Fresh ingredients and local produce.

“Great traditional fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

Had dinner there on 15 June. The service was great & everyone spoke English...a plus since my German is non-existent. They have outdoor tables streetside, but there's also a nice courtyard with more tables & of course you can always eat inside. I had the schnitzel & my wife had the grilled sausage plate. We both thought they were great. The schnitzel was huge & came with boiled potatoes. No red cabbage like the other review (I feel robbed). Easy to find on Linzer Gasse on the "New Town" side of the river.
