best place we ate in salzburg. Worthwhile crossing the river for from the old town. It's nicely decorated, wooden traditional but with hip decorations. And the food is traditional with a modern touch and simply excellent. Just dinner unfortunately.

Attempting to dine in Salzburg without a reservation during the festival can be a bit hit and miss, but we struck lucky. The friendly waiters managed to find a lovely outdoor table for us and made us feel very welcome. The menu is not very extensive, but everything is truly delicious and I was very impressed that small portions were... More

While this restaurant was recommended to me I did not feel it was worth it full praise. Travelling solo I was allocated a table without any difficulty. The restaurant was very busy at the time. That being said it took 25 minutes before I was offered a menu. The slow service experience continued throughout the meal and did have the... More

Sat on the casually elegant patio located in somewhat of a cul-de-sac, complete with small shops and playing children - a scene out of a David Lean film from the 1960s. Were attended to by a charming waiter who made various suggestions. Husband had yet another Wienerschnitzel, which he proclaimed "very good." I had a traditional chicken braised in beer... More

We loved our experience at this restaurant. Service was tremendous. The food was spectacular. Sat outside near a fountain running down a hill. Watched children and dogs play at night. Went with family. Kids found things to eat (fried chicken and wiener schnitzel). Goulash was wonderful. Pasta dishes also looked good. Ordered the strudel which was excellent.

We arrived at the eatery on a late summer evening . Ordered the trout fish special and were served two tiny pieces which were just steamed and totally bland and surrounded by a mountain of sweet potato !

We ate here on a Friday night and as we had not booked before we were placed under parasols outside. Even though it was raining lightly we did not get wet. After our order some 30 minutes passed and then our apologetic waiter called us and explained they had missed our order.After only minutes it was promptly brought and was... More

This restaurant is on a quiet street across the river from the throngs of tourists visiting the main sites in Salzburg. It is atmospheric and friendly so best booked although we dropped in at 3pm and were given the last table at 7pm that evening. They serve variations on Austrian specialities and the beef dumpling soup, crispy chicken salad and... More

Arrived in Salzburg mid afternoon and went for a walk. By 6 o'clock we happened upon Zum fidelen Affen. There was much seating outside, the waiter approached us and I indicated that we would like to have dinner. "Do you have a reservation?" he requested and I just nodded no. "Well we have these seats over here or those seats... More
