Crowded innerside. After 15 minutes waitress was coming with the menu but her face showed "here is the menu and please don't bother me too much". Food mediocre and trying to order some more drinks takes ages. Asking for the bill only did cost 23 minutes and I found out it was the wrong one. After another 10 minutes waitress... More

Food was good if not great, beer was plentiful, service was average. We enjoyed our visit, mostly because of the location. Clean, modern bathrooms were a pleasant surprise especially after downing several liters of beer.

We were only visiting Salzberg for one night beginning of July as the receptionist at our hotel recommended this restaurant for authentic Austrian fare. It had a nice ambiance as we sat outside. We waited some time for the waitress to see us but when she did she seemed nice. When our food arrived it was only ok. We wanted... More

Really a nice restaurant with inside, outside and in-between seating. Go and you'll see what I mean. The food was excellent, the beer was cold, and the service was outstanding. The day we were there, an Austrian choir group was having lunch together and they sang a few songs which entertained our area of the restaurant. This place is pretty... More

The food is tasty and good. Not the best but worth visiting. Pricey for food. Nice place to sit outside and very efficient paying system. I tried all desserts and I likes them all, presentation and taste wise. Also price is good for dessert.

My parents and my family had a lunch at this restaurant because the review of TripAdviser was 4 points out of 5. We trusted the review. The foods were average. But the waitress was rude. -When we're about to start eating, suddenly one lady came to our table and called our waitress and talked to her. Than the waitress suddenly... More

We went there with a group including a 16 months toddler. All grown ups loved it as the beer was very tasty and cold enough (it was a hot day) and the food was absolutely delicious. Plenty of options on the menu from Austrian traditional food to some other dishes that could please the ones not into Austrian cuisine. What... More

My wife and I had dinner in the older section of this large complex which caters for a range of needs, with a courtyard, a cool modern lounge and the traditional bistro. There's a steakhouse opening soon too. We enjoyed our dinner: steak and Wiener schnitzel. The steak was really well cooked, while the veal was tasty enough but not... More

The "Sternbrau" is located right in the middle of the Old City of Salzburg, next to the world-famous Getreidegasse and Mozart's birthplace.

Since 1542, the "Sternbrau" step by step has become the biggest and most popular traditional beer inn of Salzburg. Since October of 2014, the whole restaurant complex is fully renovated and now offers an outstanding variety of eleven halls and parlours with a unique mixture of tradition and modernity.

We serve typical Austrian cuisine with a modern twist, our home-brewed unfiltered beer and our own Austrian red and white wine.
