“Best schnitzel in Vienna...?”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Best Wienerschnitzel ever.
Only problem is that it was served with lingonberry jam, as we in Sweden are used to get it with lemon, anchovy and capers.
But the schnitzel itself is magic. Finest veal, breaded to perfection, large, so tasty, and with it comes potatoes, tomato and crisp sallad.
Together with a pint of the locally brewed beer, this was a great dinner.
We will be back, for sure.

Thank you for your nice commends to our Wiener Schnitzel. Well, there is some sort of competition in Vienna, which place offers the best Schnitzel in town. We are not really participating to this, we just do the Schnitzel like my grand mother always did it every Sunday, just like a family tradition. We are glad to read, that you liked it.

“Nice place for a beer.”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

If you are looking for a good place, near by Belvedere, you will enjoy Salm Brau. Nice beer, local made. Try out Pils.

Thank you for commending our PILSNER, which is indeed something special. We are using the authentic recpie of the old PILSNER, using only Pislner-Malt, run the mashing process in tripple decoction and use only Aroma Hops from Saaz.

“An excellent beer!”
Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

We only went in expecting to try the beer (which was delicious) but ended up staying all evening and having the Wiener schnitzel and Goulash (which was also delicious). An exciting atmosphere and really good food at a reasonable price. We didn't try the chilli beer but it looked very interesting and lots of people seemed happy with it. I would recommend this place.

“a great bar with good food”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

This bar serves its own brand of beer with 5 or so very different beers on tap. The food here is also very good but due to the very popular nature of the place it can take a bit of time to get served. Not the place to gfo if you are in a hurry, particularly at weekends.

Thank you for your kind feedback about our beers. We brew on the premises our blond Lager "HELLES" at single decoction, an easy to drink beer with less hops and a slight fruity after taste, our "MÄRZEN" which is an amber coloured double decoction Lager with a more malty characteristic, our tripple decoction "PILSNER" which is brewed according the very original czech origin with the typcial aroma hop finish, the double decoction "BÖHMISCH G´MISCHTES" a bohemian style dark beer with a stronger malt and smoke like finish and our original old bavarian "WEIZEN" brewed in single decoction. Beers are our passion....

“One of the worst service ever”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

My wife and I visited Belvedere Palace last week and went in this restrurant since it is next to the exit. We looked at the English manu and saw "stelze for two". We asked the waitor what this is. He did not said exactly what it was but pointed to "pork rib" and said we can have two kinds. We thought two kinds of ribs for each of us was ok. When the food was put on the table, we found that it was actually a huge pork knuckle big enough for two or three strong guys.Within a minute, anothed dish also arrived which was a big pork ribs. I said to the waiter that we did not order a foods for three or more. The food is way too much for an average man and a lady. He kept saying don't worry, he could pack for us if there is any left overs. We did not finish even half of the food. Obviously there is a big service problem with this restraurant. No correct answer or simple explanation was given to customers, and no consideration whatsoever were taken towards customers, not even from a common sense perspective. I travel the world but rarely encounter such a service. Btw, the beer was good, the pork knuckle and the ribs were average.

With regret we have to read about your totally failed visit at Salm Braeu, what a mass. We need to find out, what went wrong with your party that day. It is the job of our service staff to inform our guests as best as possible about our food and especially the fact, that Salm Braeu´s portions are big. Please contact us by mail at office@salmbraeu.com, mention Tripadvisor-Critics and tell us exactly the day, time and table location, so that we are able to identify the person, who served you. We would very much appreciate your direct contact to work out this negative experience.
