We had the schnitzel that came with generous number of potatoes, half a lettuce leaf and teaspoon of sweet berry sauce. It was on special offer of 9.5 euros which is what attracted our attention. The waiter suggested salad to go with it which is a good idea. I would agree with other reviews one piece of tomato a little... More

We came across this place walking back to our hotel from the fortress. Food was okay, but the service was great. Price average for Salzburg restaurants.

For the original schnitzel it cost 18.90 Euro and was far too salty...as if it was coated with salt! Way overpriced for what it was. It costs 2.90 Euro for a small water. House wine is poured at very small quantity and was not to standard 3.20Euro The sausage platter had poor quality of meat...similar to what one would find... More

I personally think this restaurant is hugely over rated. We went on recommendation from Rick Steve's book and we have one vegan family member so it's hard to find restaurants that we all will like. I will say that the service was fast and friendly and schnitzel was tasty. However, Käse spätzle was extremely dry and over cooked with hardly... More

My friends and I wanted to have a schnitzel while in Salzburg. It's my second time in town and I have been to other parts of Austria so I was looking forward to lunch. We were showed to our table. It seems that we arrived during staff lunch time. The two gentlemen were having their lunch, one at the table... More

We (4 adults) went there in a late afternoon. We had 2 schnitzels - veal and pork, goulash, mixed Austrian meat/sausage, and a vegan dish. Turn out all non-vegan plates were so salty. The foods were edible, look ok, but we will never ever go there again, even if it's a free meal, nor should our love ones. Too much... More

It was a freezing, sleeting Easter Monday and most places were closed, so we were happy to find this place open, even if it looked really touristy. The food was very average, had the schnitzel with potatoes. House wine by the glass wasn't chilled and not very nice too. Expensive for what it is, wouldn't go there again.

We enjoyed the curry chicken and curry fish with Basmati rice while the kids enjoyed their schnitzel. All were very well done at a good price. Excellent, smiley and humble service topped off a wonderful lunch.

Saran Essbar some good schnitzels, salad and chicken. The place isn't terribly expensive either. I overall liked the place and would recommend visiting it in case you are interested in grabbing a quick cup of coffee.
