We chose this more for the looks than any thought about the food. The restaurant/hotel is in one of the old alleys in the heart of the old town and just has quaint written all over it. When you walk inside you feel like you've gone back a hundred years.

We had the ubiquitous schnitzel, which was average size and as good as anywhere else, with the 3 or 4 bits of boiled potato that the Austrians seem to go for, rather than fried potatoes or chips that you tend to get in Germany (and which I prefer). Service was pleasant and efficient.

I'd come here again simply because it's so quaint and atmospheric.

One thing, like most higher rated restaurants in Salzburg, the tables seem to be reserved after 6pm, so unless you eat earlier or reserve you might get added to an already reserved table, which we saw happen here. You then either have to rush your meal and hope to get out before the others arrive or you can end up awkwardly sharing.

Restaurant recommended by a local that seemed to know his restaurants. Old world charm, timber and reindeer antlers, seemed to be many locals.

Excellent, friendly and efficient service, English spoken (really admire people that can switch from one language to another)

We visited to have a typical? Austrian schnitzel. Starters - beautiful beef carpaccio and a potato based soup (two people) - excellent.

Then the schnitzel arrived - wow ! Size really defines the meaning of " huge" - almost regretted having the starters - it is a big meal - simply presented with a couple of potatoes - a little dry - however quite acceptable - washed down with a local Chardonnay at a very reasonable price.

In summary - really enjoyed the meal - if returning to fabulous Salzburg (3rd visit) would return and avoid the starters.

Cozy seating inside, tables outside and hearty meals with large portions. We stopped in after seeing patrons seated outside eating some kind of fabulous looking dessert. It was the Salzburger Nockerl, a very tasty meringue/souffle type concoction sitting on top of oodles of raspberries. We should have ordered one meal between the two of us - then we might could have finished the wonderful dessert!! Service was good, prices reasonable - this place warrants a visit.

This is a charming restaurant right in the hotel. The food is genuine Austrian, and quite good. The prices are extremely reasonable.

This restaurant was on the bottom floor of our hotel. We ate there twice because it was quite good. Austrian food is heavy on potatoes and kraut and schnitzel. Within that narrow frame, there is a wide range of quality. This restaurant was the best of our Austrian experience.

Good salad, coffee, schnitzel, soup...everything! Good service, and we have little German.

We ate there twice, what else is there to say? Don 't miss the Nacherl dessert!
