We stopped by for dinner on our way to Arlberg. We like trying new places in new cities and we always use TripAdvisor. We first drove to hotel Germania at the top of the list, but it was closed. So we decided to try this place - number three on the list. If a place like this qualifies for a... More

An old "Gasthof" like they are custom to the area. Great food and very fast and friendly service. It is recommended to reserve, because it is always crowded (because the food is fantastic).

Having eaten here many times, I must admit that I have hardly ever tried anything besides Tafelspitz. Out of at least 20 times, it was, with only one exception, the best I have ever eaten anywhere. I'm comparing it to fine dining restaurants in the area as well as venues like the Plachutta in Vienna and it can definitely competed... More

This is a very traditional restaurant with both outdoor summer dining and cosy inside seating. We chose this for traditional schnitzel and strudel, both excellent. The clientele was both local and international. The service was efficient and friendly

It is not the first time I go to the Goldener Hirschen but this time, I was disappointed. My Schnitzel was good but the Kartoffelsakat was bad, really bad. The fries were not good either. My wife's soup was OK but not great. We have loved this place for years and this is probably the reason our disappointment was higher.

As we were in the area again, it seemed foolish not to eat here again. Once again the food and service was excellent. I suppose we really ought to try somewhere else whilst in Bregenz, the problem is, would it be as good as here? As we are usually only there for an evening I don't think we shall risk... More

This was a classic 'dorf' resturant with genuine classic Austrian cousine. We had to try their Schnitzel and it was superb!
