We were in a hurry for lunch and had a breaded codfish with German potato salad which was very good and also a garden salad . The dishes arrived very promptly, and we were sat right away.

Had dinner at this restaurant, food was great, staff was professional and friendly. The Sternbräu is a restaurant with different restaurants and bars interconnected in a very central location of Salzburg.

Since the Sternbräu has be restored, it is not the same again. Although the location is nice and some dining rooms are recovered with the old furniture, food is not really good and it is a very busy place. It is good for a standard snack and a beer, but that`s it.

When in Salzburg, the search is always on for the best Wiener Schnitzel and liver dumpling soup. This restaurant had the best soup and near the best Wiener Schnitzel. The service was friendly and attentive. We were seated in a more traditional, wooden booth area. We also enjoyed the Palatschinken and Kaiserschmarrn for dessert. All in all a good experience.

Delicious and affordable version of Austrian cuisine and the locally brewed Stern Beer is really good. The restaurant has enough seats, I visited it twice without prior reservation. Considering the size of the restaurant (670 seats) we were served unexpectedly quickly.

Evening mean on our first night in Salzburg. Found this place after walking around and using trip advisor to make a decision. It's a strange place coming from the uk as had multiple entrances and when we went in there was a reception desk and stairs and multiple doors. I asked what was the deal and the lady behind the...

We visited this restaurant in a hot summer day, it looks great with the many dining halls, a nice Biergarten in the middle of it and it is conveniently located close to city center and all tourist sites in Salzburg as well. However, the service was a bit disappointing, the staff seemed to be somehow confused and disorient especially in... More

Given the not really big sizes of the dishes, and the good quality but not so exceptional taste, food was a bit expensive. Very good atmosphere, several different rooms, and polite efficient staff. I would personally not include it in a "not-to-miss" list.

Our first night in Austria and we were looking forward to having Wiener Schnitzel. We found this place by accident. The food was average. The service was good. For what we got, I thought that the prices were a little high.

We came back for lunch twice tothis place. It has a traditional Bavarian brew house style ambience. Food is excellent, our waiters were kind and served us rather fast. It's one of few places that serve the Salzburg nockerl for one person. We highly recommend it and what struck us is that a lot of locals go there, which is... 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.
