On our way to lake Fuschl in Salzkammergut we had a stop in Zell am See for lunch. We followed the signs in the little village to "Seewirt" and parked our car very comfortably in a huge parking area in front of the restaurant. Obviously a place for families, we were happy to find a table in the outdoor area. The staff was busy, but very friendly. We ordered "Zanderfilet" ( fish) and "Rehkeule" (venison). Both dishes were absolutely delicious. Venison came with "Blaukraut" ( red cabbage), sweet/sour sauce of cow berries and lovely potatoes, Zander with a tasty selection of salad (lettuce, carrots,cucumber) and potatoes in brown butter sauce. Our dessert was a very nice vanilla Ice cream with hot strawberries and chocolate crumbles followed by a cappucino topped with sweetend cream. We loved it!

We asked the older guys at the InterSport ski shop for a dinner rec that wasn't touristy. They laughed really hard and said "everything is touristy here!" But when I asked where THEY like to go, they immediately suggested Seewirt. It is a mile out of town, so we drove (too cold to walk....but after stuffing ourselves silly I wish we would've braved the cold).

A very unassuming look from the outside and inside. The place was full of families and everyone speaking Austrian. We were the second to last table to finish, and that was at 8:45pm, so it really seemed to be a family place where folks ate early and then went home to bed.

For only 60 Euro we had:
the local "craft beer": light colored wheat: good, but not great
Almdudler: gotta love the dependable apple juice with sparkling water!
Mixed salad: not your average bowl of random lettuces with shaved carrots, this had a host of types of lettuce mixed with a bunch of different types of fresh vegetables. The balsamic dressing was also perfect.
Liver dumping soup: Made with a Tafelspitz broth, this hearty, tasty soup with one huge liver dumpling floating around was delicious.
Beef (Sous-vide style...marinated in a plastic bag or something, with herbs and juices of the premium cut) with delicious red cabbage and a horseradish-turnip-puree. Very fancy, VERY delicious.
Char "Muellerin-Art": This fish was served whole and was very moist and flavorful. and the fingerling potatoes it came with were cooked to the perfect level of "done." Excellent.
"milch-schnitte" dessert: this 're-invention' of the kid's favorite treat was excellent. two thin slices of a chocolate cake/bread with a sweet whipped cream in the middle, and some other sweet bits sprinkled on it, and then contrasted with citric fruits including kumquat and star fruit. Decadent!!

This was such a good deal and SUCH delicious food. We could never get a meal like that at that price in San Francisco (or Vienna or probably even Salzburg!).

Also - service was very good. Efficient and friendly. And patient with all of our questions.

Arrived late in Zell am See after a few days in Halstatt and ate here, food was better than any of the restaurants we tried in the Salzkammergut. Good service, tasty food, good value. Just a pity the place sort of lacks atmosphere and is a bit out of the way. Had the homemade ice-cream as pudding; tasted great. Never thought I'd recommend avocado ice-cream but it was delicious. I'd definitely try here if you are staying in Zell and See

We had a very nice dinner, starting with amuse geul, tasty salat, locally sourced steak, dessert plus good Austrian wine. The staff worked fast and was very friendly. Only downside is the interior design, which is somehow uninspired.

The food was good, waitresses were friendly, but nothing special. We wanted to visit another restaurant but we could not find it. After returning to chalet I checked tripadvisor and I do not have the feeling it was so excelent like it is scored in tripadvisor. But it was not bad.
