In the ancient village of Duernstein there are a few tourist traps. Despite its central location this restaurant has not fallen for the temptation of over exploiting its assets. You will not find a more relaxing view of the scenic Wachau than from the veranda of Alter Klosterkeller. The service is acceptable and the food a combination of the creative and the traditional. An informal place to spend with Family and friends - or on your own as was the case with this reporter. Highly recommended.

If you are staying in Durnstein, definitely go to eat to Alter Klosterkeller. Upstairs there's a nice view of the river, downstairs a nice view of the vineyards.
Food is very nice, typical Austrian. The choice of wines is also very good.
The staff was friendly and helpful with translating the menu into English.

A great place to get a bite to eat, outside you get a great view over the small vineyard and inside the restaurant is very cosy.

Food was good and cheap with excellent wines and service was friendly.

We went here on a recommendation and really enjoyed it. It was a bit cool but otherwise a pristine outdoor setting with awesome views of the vineyards and river. Enjoyed excellent wine (recommended by our server - just ask), cheese, salads and a hot entry that were all delicious. The interior also looked very inviting and cozy, perhaps next time we'll tuck in there after the sun goes down, if we are lucky enough to visit again.

A fine place to relax enjoy the views of the vineyards and the Danube beyond.

Even if you just want a glass of wine, this place is most enjoyable.

Indoor dining , available but the garden and terrace are much better weather permitting.

A fine and varied menu. Both hot and cold dishes available. Good service too.
The Wachauer bread often still warm from the nearby bakery is great with the varied spreads.
good barbeque steaks and spareribs on the weekend

This place just adds to a nice visit in this beautiful village
