This is a no frills place in Salzburg, a town where we haven't yet found a really wonderful place to eat. So, why eat here? (1) In a town where everything is overpriced, this place is cheap.

This is the better (more filling) option than the fischburger version. The cakes were moist and tasty, the rice was amazing, and the portion was hardy. This place is a hidden gem in plain sight. This plate was only 4,80 which is great value.

We read about it in Rick Steves book . Very reasonably priced.eating outside was wonderful, the tables overlooked the Salzach river,being able to watch boats and people come and go would eat there again.

This restaurant is located beautifully and is cheap, but that's all I can say about it. I don't know about the "fresh" seafood as my fish and chips were completely ordinary and my husband saw them take fish sticks from the freezer for my son. Totally unforgettable meal, but the location and price is right.

The food is not extraordinary, however, the cost is also not high. This is a place where you could stop by for a rest and get a quick bite!

We stumbled across this fish bar and ended up staying a few hours!! Fresh fish is cooked to order and in a café style environment. Washed down with local beer makes for a good lunch right on the water front. One half of the restaurant serves wet fish while the other half cooks great meals. Not very expensive and in... More

For an inexpensive snack or meal with absolutely fresh seafood right by the river in central Salzburg, this is the place. Outdoor seating on the sidewalk along the river or indoor seating with a river view. Place your order at the counter, they cook it for you and bring it to your table. Beer and wine available. Located at Hanusplatz... More

Fisch Krieg is a great place for a quick & inexpensive lunch or dinner. Grilled, fried, cold salads and paella. All with potatoes and vegetables. Cash only, self-serve. Casual setting with a tree growing through it. We were able to eat gluten free there just by selecting carefully.

This scenic little fish market and restaurant filled the bill for us as we shopped and toured Salzburg. Located along the Salzbach River near the Lover's Lock Bridge, there was always a scenic view to be enjoyed. This is an active fish market selling very fresh and unique varieties of fish. The fish can be cooked to order if you... More

An average seafood meal that is tasty but uninspiring. Situated adjacent to the Salzach River, this restaurant is conveniently located for easy access on either side of the river. However, the seafood selections remain simple and basic. The price seems slightly on the high side for such simple food, however it is nothing to complain about. I would dine here... More
