“Excellent meal, lively atmosphere, friendly service”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

This little tiny place with an outdoor waiting room was unassuming from the outside. As we walked through the door, it turned out to be a bustling little enclave. There were two seats near the bar and that was it. Everything was full and humming. We asked for a table and they told us they were fully booked for the week. So we sat down for a cocktail and had a lovely chat with the woman behind the bar who happened to be the one to determine seating. She told us we could wait to see if a table opened up or we could have dinner at the bar. When the time came, she asked a couple at a table for 4 if we could join them. The lovely British couple agreed.

What a warm old-world charming atmosphere. The food was inventive traditional and superb. We ordered the specials. A phenomenal home made calves liver pate with coarse bread for the first course which we split. Then a sliced veal dish in a dark gravy with cranberries and a special dumpling for me and a venison goulash for my husband. It was glorious. Schnapps for dessert and we were happy. If only we could have fit desserts as the menu was super enticing. A big treat. Make reservations as soon as you get into town so as not to be disappointed.

“Our favourite”
Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

We visit this area regularly and Hilberger's is the best restaurant we've found. Lovely staff, who always remember us, fabulous food and a wonderful, busy atmosphere. You must book, as we've never not found it packed, and be prepared to wait for your food - everything is home-cooked, as far as we can tell, and you may have to wait over 45 minutes to get your meal... but it's worth the wait.

“Great food in a traditional austrian restaurant”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Really delicious food, reasonably priced in a great environment & cosy atmosphere. The staff make you feel at home & they can speak good english. Menu is in english as well. Book beforehand as it can get very busy.

“Consistently good food”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

All the dished we tried were very good and the place was always full so it had a great vibe. Service was good, but be sure to book if you are going during peak season.

“Wow!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I visited this restaurant two years ago and vowed if i was ever in Kaprun again i would go back........and that's what i did this week twice. The service is wonderful the ambience inviting and the food - well just amazing! I have been dreaming of their pumpkin soup for two years - it was every bit as good as i remember. Just have anything that says pumpkin on the menu - you will be in for a treat! The rest of the food is also stunning. Can't wait until our next visit!
