A nice restaurant in a classy mountain style with a lot of wood interior. One of the best places to eat in Zell am See.

I can not recommend this place enough! Even though I've been to Zell am See several times this was my first visit to Zum Hirschen. The restaurant makes austrian dishes but many of them with a nice twist. The chef has really put a lot of effort into how the food is presented and composed, and at the same time... More

Would have to do some work with the service, but... More

having read some reviews thought we'd try Hirschen and weren't disappointed. Greeted and recommended that we sit outside due to heat and were grateful for recommendation. Food was excellent - special pepper steak or light bite tuna & scallops, then desserts of orange flan and rhubarb & strawberry gratin. All was exquisite and service from all was good Only downside...

We visited this town on a rainy day and wandered around looking for somewhere to eat which wasn't pizza. The six of us came across this hotel with public restaurant which looked very inviting and a member of staff welcomed us outside. We explained we only wanted a beer and a snack but she ushered us in and nothing was... More

Concidering a 4 star hotel you can have some higher expectations as a normal European hotel. The expectations have come true. Very friendly welcome by the staff who know their languages. The food in the restaurant is of a very good quality and the portions are just right. Absolutely worth to come back here.

We have had dinner at least a dozen times in Zum Hirschen. The food is excellent and the service perfect. Go for the Chateubriand - it's gorgeous!

A high standard of Austrian traditional fare, with a leaning towards game dishes, in a typical and charming old-world setting. The service was excellent and most of the staff speak English. Great beer and an excellent wine list. Highly recommended.
