Chanterelle poorly washed - gritty Cepes linguini - lacked salt, parmessan not served as a matter of course. Not eaten so disappointingly in Salzburg for a long time. Don’t be enticed by the location

We had lunch there today. The ravioli with truffle was pretty good and the service was also good. We had better food elsewhere in Salzburg though.More

The best meal we had in Salzburg. We asked our concierge to recommend a centrally located fine dining restaurant which served Austrian food. The Blau Gans Gasthaus certainly fitted the bill. We received a warm welcome and the service was attentive throughout. My husband struggled...More

History proves that you'll be well looked after: people have been gathering here for centuries, ever since 1350. The old walls with their vaulted ceilings and cosy nooks have seen plenty in their day; nothing can shake them these days. Smokers are welcome: there is a smoking lounge in the Schanigarten (pavement cafe), while everywhere else is non-smoking. The new Salzburg cuisine Take the courtly, bourgeois cuisine of Vienna, mix in some alpine produce and the easy ways of the south, all seasoned with a pinch of innovation and there you have it - attractive and modern Salzburg cuisine. Authentic. Simple. Regional. "Classic Austrian dishes", meticulously prepared offal, forgotten recipes, underrated cuts of meat, interesting vegetable dishes and the great imperial tradition of desserts as preserved by our confectioner Karl-Heinz - that's how we cook. Our Wine Archive (Weinarchiv) used to be a jazz cellar with vaults that are centuries old. It now stores our precious stock of wines. We open it up for festivities from 8 to 50 people, and call it "La Tavolata" which means something like: "Let's all have a great evening together at this long table." You can be sure that whatever we serve up has been home-made at our food manufactory and presented on an array of dainty plates and bowls. Everybody gets stuck in, helping themselves and their neighbours. Sharing is caring! We're flexible We are no strangers to allergies, food sensitivities and alternative dietary habits. Just let us know and we'll be able to cater to you and your requirements.
