I was staying at the hotel in December and had lunch there. I enjoyed the selections from the "Austrian" menu. Reasonably priced, the service was great but the intimate setting was even better. You gotta hit this place if in Melk.

Just one night stop over in Melk. The restaurant at the hotel Post was fantastic! Service, selection and food was all very good. The prices were very reasonable - in line with what we had been paying but so much better! The hotel was very nice too. Highly recommended. Staff very helpful.

Went back to this restaurant after staying in hotel 9 months ago. Great meal, attentive service and good selection of local wines. Ambiance is very good with vibrant atmosphere. Recommend the pork recipes at this time of year.

Great restaurant with a terrace and a lot of choice, including local/ Austrian dishes, fresh fish and seasonal specialities. It is popular with locals having something to celebrate, so make your reservation!

We ate here because we stayed at the hotel. The menu was a little more expensive than we would have liked, but we shared a fried chicken dish and there was plenty for my husband and me. Excellent potato salad. I wasn't expecting to like it!! Dessert was also delicious.

Next to our stay at the hotel we also ate here with our kids. The quality of the food is very high, I personally recommend the typical Austrian dishes which are well prepared.
