How the tour director found this place I don't know. Sort of out of the way and in a beautiful location right by the lake. Think "Sound of Music" pretty. The food was excellent and probably the most authentic we had in Austria. If you are in the area be sure to go. Our group of 50 really enjoyed the... More

We are a young family and have visited the restaurant last summer. We liked it so much that when we came to St Gilgen this year, we headed straight there. And we were not disappointed. The restaurant has a nice garden with trees and various fresh herbs. A playground for children is a welcome feature. The staff smile at you... More

We had dinner here off season and it was very quiet. This did not matter and we sat outside under a canopy even when it was raining outside. The owner came to talk to us and the staff were very friendly chatting in English. The food is excellent and I especially recommend the risotto with asparagus and the pork fillet... More

We eat here twice on our visit. Food was excellent both times, from the pork wiener schnitzel to the boiled beef and fried chicken salad. Staff very good.

A very nice restaurant tucked away on a side street just off the main square in St Gilgen. Entry to the restaurant is via a courtyard area at the side and there are a number of outdoor dining areas as well as two large dining rooms inside, one of which looks to be for larger events based. The food was... More

We were recommended the Wirt am Gries by the tourist office and used it three times in our five night stay in St Gilgen, good hearty Austrian food (try the beef broth and liver dumpling) and friendly service would not hesitate to go back if we are ever in St Gilgen

Everything about the Wirt am Gries is absolutely fantastic. Cozy, intimate, and very Austria setting. Delicious, creative and unique dishes along with the Austrian favorites. The portions are generous, bring your appetite, but also be sure to order dessert! Martin, the owner or Wirt makes dinning at the Wirt am Gries an experience you don't want to miss!

We always try and eat at the Wirt am Gries when in St Gilgen. The food is always top class. The hosts are among the nicest people you could meet. The New Year menu was as usual exceptional and good value. If you are in the area, you should try this restaurant.
