The wife and I popped in here for a quite drink. 3 hours later we stumbled out. Mario ... what a top bloke. Such a friendly, welcoming guy. Sat on our own, he introduced us to everyone. Made new friends and had such a laugh. Can't recommend this place enough. Will definitely be coming back.

We stumbled at this cosy little bar by accident. Great music, nice beer, Mario himself was lovely. The place has a relaxed, a bit underground feel to it. If you are a smoker that's definitely the place to go, you will be looked after. If you are the type that enjoys hyped, trendy, mainstream bars then stay way.

Like a previous reviewer I too stumbled ( literally) into this delightful oasis on a very snowy evening. Anxious to get out of the minus 10 blizzard conditions outside we dropped in "just for the one" but I get the feeling no one stops for less at Marios. I too felt like a walk on part in a local drama.... More

Stopped here one evening to warm up with a glass of wine - a very cute little bar with a nice decor, although the ambiance was ruined by the manner of the bar staff. I usually don't worry too much if staff are aloof or unfriendly, but the man at the bar here was quite rude to us and actually... More

A lovely small bar nestled in the streets of salzburg. As soon as we entered, we were greeted by the charm and warmth of the owner " Marios" . Amazing drinks, great music and nice chitchat with the local crowd. " Marios" seems to be a popular character among the locals. You don't go to salzburg if you don't go... More

My wife and I first visited Marios' Taverna around Christmas time 2012. It was a fun and slightly wild evening of partying that my wife and I vowed not to repeat. Not because it wasn't fun. Heck it was a lot of fun. But we are getting too old for the late night party scene and general carousing. However, we... More

This little bar in the Linzergasse is absolutely terrible, wine is served in unwashed glasses and the snacks that we ordered tasted like they were days old. The wine he so proudly proclaimed was "the best in Salzburg" was sour and frankly, the hygienic status of the glasses did not agree with me and the server (/owner?) was neither friendly... More

Great little bar with delicious food. We were welcomed by Mario who originates from Crete. There is no menu other than the blackboard outside, so if you have a food in mind, just ask Mario, which is the Cretan way! We had a great night drinking and chatting away. The atmosphere is convivial and welcoming! Mario is very charming and... More

This little place is enchanting. There is no Menu but what is brought to you by the man running the place is absolutely delicious; it makes you feel like you are in Greece. An absolute to go!!!!

My boyfriend and I visited Salzburg in November 2014. We stumbled across Mario's whenever we were looking for somewhere to have a drink in the afternoon. We were welcomed by Mario at the door. He suggested that we try the beer which was so light and easy to drink. We enjoyed the atmosphere so much that we returned that evening.... More
