We were there on a Saturday evening, determined to sample their beer selection. We were not disappointed. Staff was ok and quite tolerant with the kids. Home-made Kaiserschmarrn was heavenly. Maybe our experience was better than others' because we went there with a local who kind of ”introduced” us to the waiter and ”translated” what went beyond our basic German.... More

Good food. Unfortunately the service was not that good. Not so child friendly. Nice Austrian wine - surprisingly. The salad and the sausages were good

Yes, really just a run down dark cellar under a big hotel building serving cafeteria quality food and beer that you can find anywhere else. Service was fine but nothing to brag about and the price was reasonable, but there are much better places in Salzburg.

We were told this Pitter Keller was the oldest in Salzburg. We hoped it would have food to live up to the reputation it seemed to own. Sadly it didn't. The welcome was less than warm and the waiter, dressed in his Lederhosen, was abrupt and dismissive. The food was mediocre and not that hot. I had fried chicken and... More

Visited the Pitterkeller with friends and we were not disappointed. Only 500 yards from our hotel Achat Zum Hirschen so excellent if you fancy a skin full and a short stagger back!
