“Price qualty works”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

You can enjoy typical Austrian meals like "Schnitzel": fast services, fair prices (especially if taken into account that it is a tourist spot) and in a sunny day a nice location for a Beer on top of Salzburg.

“Traditional”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

It is a touristical place, but all the time I am there I have to say the food is realy nice, and the prices are normal (normal for Salzburg). So if you are up there and hungry, do not hesitate!

“Amazing view for a drinks stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

We took the funicular up the Mönchsberg (which is included in the Salzburg-Card) to enjoy the view and have a drink here. The service is really friendly and efficient. The tables by the wall offering the fantastic view are the ones to go for. Yes, you'll pay quite a bit more for a drink, but it is very much worth it!

“View is the reason to go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2012

We just had coffee and drinks on Christmas Day. Wan't crowded had a wonderful view from our window seat. Service was excellent. I think going at dusk would be absolutely beautiful having a drink or dinner as the lights come on over Salzburg. View was just amazing and a great place to just sit and rest if you have been walking all over the monchburg.

“Great Spitztafel and amazing views of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

This is a great alternative for lunch if you plan to go up to the fortress for a visit. It is located right outside the funicular, so plan to eat before your visit to the site if you can. It has a good selection of Austrian and Central European dishes and wonderful fresh salads. The service was courteous and efficient. You might want to call ahead to reserve a table by a window. Some of them look out toward the Alps and the expansive valley, and others look down on the river and the city. A nice experience all around.
