The Bärenwirt, located in the historic district Mülln, is one of the oldest inns in Salzburg. Hospitality plays an important role since 1663 and the traditional inn is run with a lot of personal commitment. At the Bärenwirt you enjoy traditional Austrian specialities and beer of the Augustiner Bräu, the oldest brewery of Salzburg. We recommend our fried chicken, which is known as the best one of Austria. The sunny terrace with view onto the river Salzach and the Kapuzinerberg, one of the two hills in the center of Salzburg, and the cozy guest rooms invite you to spend a relaxing and pleasurably time at the Bärenwirt. If you are planning a festivity with your family and friends the Bärenwirt

During our stay in Salzburg, me and my partner got to this restaurant after reading good receptions about it, however we got refused service from the waiter even if there were a lot of free tables: We got in at about 9 pm and were...told that the kitchen was about to close (at 9:30!) and couldn't be served; we kindly asked if it was possible to have a sandwich to-go with one of the ALREADY COOKED typical sausages which were on display, but still got refused and sent away. I don't understand why the staff was so rude with two guys who just wanted to have a nice meal.More

The place as far as the atmosphere is concerned is very nice and the staff were quite helpful. The snietchel was just ok and the special desert they have (you have to order in advance) was nothing special for me but that is a matter...of taste. Keep in mind that in the catalogue says its for two people but actually is for fourMore

Walk enough to spot it, as was recommended by other visitors.. We had a meal and nowhere was mentioned, even by the place that during afternoon hours, NOT ALL the dishes are offered and served..!! For that (those resting hours), there is a special designed...menu..! So although gets high positive critics, we did not have the opportunity to try such wonderful and variety of meals as advertised.. Dishes amount was ok but quality just above average.. Snitzel in the most places is overpriced in my opinion and has nothing special.. It's Knödel was big and meat well cooked but snitzel was surely quickly fried.. Prices good although for drinks could be a bit better.. has some view of Salzar river but not something special in environment.. Personnel were polite but I think acting or striving for it.. Could have lunch in a better place and was mislead by other visitors..More

This restaurant was very busy when we arrived one cold evening before christmas. We were able to share a table and were very happy to have been able to get a spot! Fried chicken was amazing and services was friendly.

My family and I had read this was one of he best restaurants in Salzburg. We came here and were refused and were told that we had to make reservations. While I was inside, I did see quite a few empty tables and seats....so didin't...really undesrtand. We asked them if they did take-out and they also said no. Also their menu had no vegan options...except fried potatoes. Don't think we will attempt to get a reservation or return here.More

The house special fried chicken ticks all the boxes washed down with a local beer. Say no more. It’s a good portion so be warned. Good service & good meal in a lovely old restaurant. Put it on the list when you are next in...Salzburg.More

We sat at a communal table and had a very nice meal. Authentic Austrian dishes and very friendly and helpful staff. You should reserve a table, it is very popular. The restaurant is known for Brathendl (fried chicken) which includes the liver.

They apparently serve the best Brathendl in Austria. So we had to give it a try. The chicken indeed was just perfect. We also had Kasnockerl which were simply amazing. Service is friendly & supportive. We'll be back!

This is a typical Austrian reaturant with standard fare. Sausage, kraut,etc all good. This a good location just down the street the Augistiner Beer Hall. They cater to tourists and have English menus.

Hello. No idea why I received this. I am not the restaurant, but someone who wrote a review of it on Trip Advisor. You may have pushed the wrong button.......
