“Fantastic food and surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

A truly great restauarant, located in the ancient heart of the city. The food at the Herberstein is out of this world, the menu has flavours and items that you couldn't dream of. The decor and atmosphere is really great and there is a least one area where you can have a priate dining area for groups of 10 -12 which is nice for a business meal. It is not cheap but the best quality never is. Service is good and staff are happy to speak English. There is a courtyard area although I have not used it.

“A real find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

A special meal location in Linz. Not the cheapest but memorable for its excellent quality of food and presentation. Had an excellent wine list but we choose to have wines by the glass for each course which we left to the sommelier and were not dissapointed. Gave us wines we probably wouldnt have picked ourselves which were all excellent. Really enjoyable meal would recommend.

“Delicious and thoughtful menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012 via mobile

I really enjoyed a quiet evening here during a stay in Linz, I stumbled across it walking the streets and was very glad I stopped by. My only mistake was thinking Steinbutt was a mountain goat instead of a fish, but it was delicious anyway!

“Exquisite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

The best meal I've had in Linz for a week's stay. It's definitely worth the high prices. Be careful if you are on budget, though you won't regret spending a bit more for a dinner here.

“excellent food downtown with good atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

we haven't been here in a while because the bar on the weekend is crowded with people on the 'lookout' - but were really surprised to find such good food on a weeknight with clients. Not too crowded, very good service and excellent food. We love the Asian influence and I was impressed on how the food is presented as well. Compliments! if the weather is fine one can dine in the courtyard which is lovely, I can highly recommend this restaurant. If your intention is to get a great meal - go during the week when it isn't that busy with people frequenting the bar for obvious reasons.
