“Good Food & Good Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Located in the basement of the Crowne Plaza Hotel, this is a nice, unpretentious restaurant serving local fare. It is not fancy by any means, but the food is good and well priced. If you are looking for something substantial, try the rosti stuffed with ham, cheese and spinach. The squash stuffed ravioli in a butter sauce was also outstanding. The house wines were very good.

The waitresses are dressed in some variation of traditional Austrian garb, which suits the place. More importantly, they are all friendly, all seem to speak at least some English, and all take obvious pride in their work.

“Loved the idea of smaller servings!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

When I ordered the roast pork the waitress offered me a smaller serving. The meal was rich and flavourful and the smaller serving was perfect (I didn't finish all of it.) The house white wine was very good.

“So good we went 2 nights running!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Visited the Pitter during our 2 night stay in Salzburg and had such a good night the first time, we returned on the 2nd!! There were 6 of us and we ate in the Pitter both nights too - the food was incredibly good as was the beer!! The service was really excellent, friendly but efficient, and reasonable prices for the food and drinks. We would definitely go back there again if we go back to Salzburg

“Beer and strudel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

We popped in here on our way back to our hotel after dinner for dessert. Nice and cosy inside. We had an apple strudel to share and a beer each. We had a fair few strudels while we were in Salzburg but this had the nicest presentation - came with ice cream, cream and some fruit which was nice. Bit pricier than some other places which I assume is because it's part of the hotel.

“a must when staying in Salzburg!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Whilst we were staying at the Crowne Plaza the weather was horrendous so on the first night we decided to eat at the Pitterkeller based on the Tripadvisor reviews... My husband was surprised when I suggested it as he knows how I avoid eating at hotels as in my experience they are usually overpriced and/or not great... no such problem with the pitterkeller...lots to choose from on the menu, very reasonable prices, generous servings, nice cosy pub atmosphere and friendly staff... all of this combined to make it a must try on any trip to Salzburg... We were staying for 3 nights at the Crowne Plaza and ate at the Pitterkeller every night. We tried different places for lunch/coffee during the day whilst we were out sightseeing but most were more expensive or didn't have the variety to choose from, so we kept on returning each night so we didn't have to brave the cold and wet!
