My favorite restaurant in the world. Cozy, clean and the best schnitzel ever! I've sent numerous friends her and can't wait to be back next year.

North Americans may be surprised to learn that restos in Austria close up much earlier than we are used to. My hotel sent me to another recommended restaurant not knowing they were closed for a private function. By the time I returned to the hotel, it was getting late for dinner. A call from Hotel Mozart to Alter Fuchs ensured... More

We decided to head here after a long day of touring. It's in the New Town area and it's a great stop if you finish up guided tours as it's a five minute walk after your dropped off. Plenty of fun locals enjoying a great night out. Defiantly give it a try!

Got a recommendation from my partner to go here and I'm so glad I did. Such amazingly delicious food in a lovely venue at a great price. We each had a main which was more than enough, beer, and a dessert to share for €20 each. Absolutely loved it and would recommend.

Great service, great Austrian food, great value...will def return here. Nice atmosphere with a traditional decor. Gets busy so may need to book although we didn't. Mid price range but well worth it.

The place is a cozy and nice restaurant that really brings you back in time. Loved the environment, the staff are very friendly and dressed traditionally and the food is delicious. The prices are good and the portions are quite large. I reccomend the traditional beef schnitzel and the pumpkin supe

Four years ago we came here with our son and had a great meal. We think that we had the Wiener schnitzel last time, but that was four years ago!! We decided to go back for old times sake and see if it had altered at all. I can say it definitely hadn't. It was as crowded as last time... More

Food is mediocre--Who else makes bad sauerkraut in Austria? Crowded and staff works on rapid turnover of tables. Stop in only if you are famished and can't look any farther.

Probably best meal my wife and I had in Austria. Delicious veal schnitzel, salads, huge strawberry parfait, and reasonably priced. Service prompt and friendly. I would recommend to anyone visiting Salzburg.

Cold meats to start, followed by traditional Austrian goulash, washed down by cold beer, in a great atmosphere - all this for under 50 euros per couple. Couldn't ask for better.
