Food is mediocre--Who else makes bad sauerkraut in Austria? Crowded and staff works on rapid turnover of tables. Stop in only if you are famished and can't look any farther.

Probably best meal my wife and I had in Austria. Delicious veal schnitzel, salads, huge strawberry parfait, and reasonably priced. Service prompt and friendly. I would recommend to anyone visiting Salzburg.

Cold meats to start, followed by traditional Austrian goulash, washed down by cold beer, in a great atmosphere - all this for under 50 euros per couple. Couldn't ask for better.

Visited twice during a 3 day stay and had 4 excellent, filling, tasty and reasonably priced meals, beer and wine. The "Old Fox" was always packed and its recommended to book/reserve especially if you want to eat between 18:00-20:00, however whilst there was nearly always a queue of people waiting you never felt pressured to hurry up and leave...

This old Gasthouse looks really traditional, especially with it's dining tables outside on the street, so we thought we'd try some typical Austrian cuisine - we wish we hadn't bothered ! My boiled beef came floating in the water it had been boiled in, my roast potatoes were actually boiled potatoes and the over-cooked veg were unrecognisable - my partner... More

The place presents itself very well, the staff were attentive and the service was quick. The menu is affordable to mid range. My wild boar was tuff and a little disappointing but my partners Chicken was perfect so overall a good experience.

We did visit this restaurant in oktober and it was really busy. But after a short wait we did get a table and had a nice beer and descent food. It really was good food and the service was excellent.

Our first night out in Austria and we wanted to find a place that served Austrian food and we weren't disappointed. Great service, food was very tasty and atmosphere was great. Recommend to others especially sausages - 3 boys had them & loved them!

Grabbed a quick lunch here after checking in to our hotel. Food was good, reasonably priced with friendly and efficient service! They have outdoor seating, so we were able to enjoy the beautiful weather. We passed by several times during our visit to Salzburg and it was always busy, so clearly they are doing something right.

Tasty local food and beer. Nice staff, interesting interior. Might be busy on pick time, but worth to visit anyway.
