We had dinner at this restaurant as a recommendation from our hotel. The service was great. The atmosphere was very nice. I had the lamb shoulder. It was a bit gristly. It tasted just fine but didn't expect so much of it. My husband had the roast pork. He said it was very good as well. Our friends enjoyed their... More

On a warm evening in August we ended up at the Sternbrau beer garden for a late couple of pints. We had been looking around Salzburg with friends, and after finding the jazz club that we crossed town for closed, we were looking for somewhere to relax. In the daytime the beer garden was very busy with people eating and... More

We stopped by, because we found the in-court biergarten lovely, and far from the noise of the last day of Fair. We took the famous Austrian Wiener schnitzel, but it was just oily. Beware if the server propose you a salad, as if it comes with your main dish, because it is NOT!! Unfortunately, we had really few choices of... More

This restaurant was recommended to me and I thought the menu looked nice. However, the place was busy and there were just 2 harassed looking waiters who showed no interest in serving me at all when I arrived around 18.45. One was extremely rude and just told me to go and sit at a table that was covered in the... More

This review is strictly for the beer garden...love it! Its a nice retreat from the nonstop shopping consumer madness of Old Salzburg. The only problem is trying to find a table away from the smokers, but at least you're outdoors. Beers are €3-4 each, even for the half liter pours, which is fantastic! Unfortunately, I was too full to try... More

We ate lunch here during our short stay in Salzburg. We ordered Wienersnitzel from veal, and it was very good. Toilets wew very modern and clean, and they even had free wifi outdoor.

We had dinner in the restaurant on Griesgasse. Note: there are 3 or 4 different restaurants and bars interconnected. Service was excellent. Very efficient and friendly. Food was served quickly and tasted great. Prices were reasonable. The Salzburger Nockerl was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend this place.

Went here on our first night in Salzburg on a recommendation from a friend. My husband got cheese dumplings with pumpkin ragout (a special) and I got the spinach dumplings in butter. Both meals were delicious and filling. The ambiance was very nice outside in a courtyard with some trees. Service was pleasant. Location was central to everything.

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.
