Had a meal here in late winter earlier this year. The restaurant itself has a very cosy and homely feel. However the food is just divine, and I can't see why Alt Salzburg cannot receive a Michelin Star! It is situated a few blocks from the very busy Getreidegasse and so didn't seem very crowded. A nice little niche for... More

We were kindly advised on what we could eat and had a delicious typical Austrian meal in a typical Austrian atmosphere.

We recently had dinner at Alt Salzburg during Mozart week...a warm welcome, refined atmosphere, great food and wine. Excellent Austrian food of a high quality, cozy ambience, and discreet service. Family owned..and it shows! We will be back next year!

Excellent austrian international food cooked at a high level. We have eaten there several times over the last 3 years and quality and taste are very consistent. Very charming and cozy ambience built in the rock of the tunnel. Also child friendly especially when it's not too crowded. Family owned.

We arrived in Salzburg after a journey through a snow storm from Munich airport. We checked into our rather souless though convenient hotel, where the computer had been down so we had to wait for our room. Walking into the Alte Salburg immediately changed our mood! We were welcomed although we hadn't booked, and were shown to a table well... More

The Alt Salzburg is situated within the old town and is a traditional Austrian restaurant. Our table for 6 was booked by the Salzburg tourist board and we had an advent menu, which was excellent. The extensive wine list is predominantly of the region. The service is faultless, polite and informative. Altogether, a very pleasant dining experience in comfortable surroundings.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our Hotel concierge, and we intended to book a table for our last night. Instead we stumbled across it while searching for a nice spot so went in. We received a most warm welcome, and were immediately shown to a table. The food served is very much local dishes, with a few other... More

Alt Salzburg was recommended by our hotel. We walked in without a reservation on a Friday night, but we were graciously greeted and seated. We overheard our waiter turning away people who came in just for a drink, telling them that this is an "Austrian Dining Restaurant," and we couldn't agree more! It was a delicious meal of authentic Austrian... More

Recommended to come here by our hotel. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal - lovely homely atmosphere , felt like you were having a meal at someone's home in a very good way. Nicely priced quality food delivered with a smile by a very friendly waiter.

Lovely, cool and quiet spot, not easy to find but worth it. My husband and I enjoyed a homecooked meal here (freshly steamed but still crisp broccoli after a much meat-based tour of Austria) that while not 4 star gourmet fare, tasted wonderful and was graciously presented. It felt like you were at someone's home, getting a warm, healthy and... More
