In the restaurant Brunnauer you can eat well in Salzburg

The restaurant Brunnauer is located in the Villa Ceconi in the Nonntal. From there you have a view of the Hohensalzburg Fortress. Richard Brunnauer has now been awarded three toques. They are well deserved. For a few years now he and his wife have been running the Brunnauer restaurant below Hohensalzburg Fortress. His cuisine is classic and traditional. And above all, very tasty.

The Salzburg restaurant serves a different combination of starter and main course every day for lunch. At an affordable price. If you want dessert, you pay extra. The menu can include, for example, a crayfish cocktail and a natural schnitzel from veal with butter rice and peas. Or a Barbarie duck breast with coleslaw and a brook fillet with arugula pork and herb sauce. The lunch menu provides different delicacies every day. It's better to reserve more time for dinner, because there is more choice.

Richard Brunnauer also organizes cooking classes on request. We prepared the beef roulades with spaetzle in the photo above on one of his cooking lessons during one of these cooking classes. Afterwards the food was served in the restaurant. An experience that we like to remember.

In Schloss Aigen inn you can eat well in Salzburg

Schloss Aigen is one of the inns in Salzburg, that combine good food with tradition and Gemütlichkeit. The inn is just outside the town near the Villa Trapp . From there we walked to Aigen Castle. It took us just under ten minutes. In summer you can enjoy the sun and good food in the large beer garden. In winter, cozy guest rooms await visitors.

Organic beef from Austria plays a major role on the menu of this traditional inn. It starts with beef tartare and boiled beef bouillon with meat strudel as a starter. It continues with steak variations ranging from ladies steak to fillet steak to surf & turf (steak with lobster) and rib eye with fries. If that's too much beef, you can also find fish, vegetarian dishes or old Austrian cuisine on the menu.

Eat well in Salzburg: in the "zum Eulenspiegel" restaurant

This Salzburg restaurant is located near Getreidegasse and therefore in the center of the city. We went to the “Eulenspiegel” for a late lunch in the afternoon and were almost the last lunchtime guests, so that we practically had the waitress to ourselves. So we were served quickly and in a friendly manner. At lunchtime there is certainly more going on there. Because the restaurant is right across from Mozart's birthplace. The food - fried chicken for petar and boiled beef for me - was good and tasty. Here you can get Austrian cuisine and Salzburg specialtieswhich is prepared from products from our own farm. Fish, herbs, vegetables, lettuce and eggs come from our own production.

Food in a historical ambience

The specialty of this restaurant is the location. It is located in a historic building, which was first mentioned in 1414. The dining rooms are spread over three floors, and we eat in one of the cozy dining rooms on the second floor, which we reach via uneven stairs. An open fireplace is surrounded by a wood-paneled wall. There is a wine press by the window and an animal skin hangs on the other wall under stained glass.


Experience Salzburg's cuisine


Here they have a sense of humor

The Eulenspiegel humor shines through in this restaurant. There is a Frauenzimmer ("woman's room") on the second floor. There are two small tables that offer space for two people. Here you can dine in a cozy atmosphere. In general, the ambience of this old house is perfectly preserved. Anyone who would like to dine in an exceptional setting is in good hands here. During peak meal times, however, we recommend reserving a table and bringing a little more time. Then it will be more hectic than when we ate there.

Cozy: in the "Fidelen Affen" in Salzburg
Eat comfortably and well in Salzburg: in the “Fidelen Affen”


Rustic dining in the "Fidelen Affen"

On the other side of the Salzach in Priesterhausgasse 8, not far from Linzer Gasse and thus in the middle of the pedestrian zone, is this beer restaurant. The atmosphere in this 17th century inn is rustic and cozy. We have reserved a table. That's a good thing, because the “Fidele Affe” is very popular. The restaurant is full when we arrive at half past eight.



This is where young and old meet

The audience is mixed in the "Fideler Affe". In a corner of the restaurant young people (students?) are chatting over a glass of beer. In the center of the restaurant is the bar and the beer bar. In front of it are several standing tables under the vaults. Here, guests drink their beer, before they go home after shopping. We sit in one of the niches and enjoy our warm soup. This tastes good after a walk through cold, wintry Salzburg, as is the Salzburger Bratl with bread dumplings, boiled potatoes and vegetables. The Fideler Affe serves hearty home-made food prepared from Austrian ingredients.

Eat well in Salzburg in the wheat beer brewery Die Weisse

The wheat beer brewery Die Weisse is located away from the old town of Salzburg. As the name suggests, this is a brewery. However, there is also a rustic inn, in which, in addition to the homemade wheat beers, hearty food from Austria's regions is served. We had lunch in the wheat beer brewery. The beer hall ambience is hearty. The kitchen serves specialties from Austria, that you don't see on every menu. The beers that come from the in-house brewery, go well with this. This guarantees a special culinary experience.

We ate a fried chicken with potato and cucumber salad and a plate of Innviertel dumplings on sauerkraut. These were filled with minced meat. The selection of beers for this meal was interesting. Since we were there for lunch, we opted for mixed beer drinks. In addition to a Radler, we had the choice between a Berliner Weisse (wheat beer with currant juice) or a Russian Weisse (wheat beer with lemonade). Alternatively, there was a Negro White (wheat beer with cola). For that, it would be better to come up with another name in the future. “Political correctness” demands it. In any case, I didn't like the name. There was also a choice of a Hollodri Weisse, for which you mix wheat beer with elderberry juice.

Bosnia Salzburg
Bosna Salzburg - not a restaurant food, but a Salzburg specialty


Bosna Salzburg - No restaurant food, but an institution

The Bosna Grill at Getreidegasse 33 is not a restaurant. However, the long lines, that form in front of it every day, show that this Balkan grill in a side street of the Getreidegasse is an institution in Salzburg. The sausage rolls, which have been sold there since 1950, are recommended by almost every city guide, with whom we have previously been to the city of Mozart.

The sausages were invented by Zanko Todoroff. Born in Bulgaria, he made the sausages for the first time in 1949. Word quickly spread about how good they taste. Only a year later he opened his grill in the narrow passage between University Square and the Getreidegasse. Since then, locals and visitors have been queuing there every day for their sausage. You need a lot of patience around lunchtime. The sausages are available in baked white bread rolls. They are served with chopped onion, parsley and spices. If you want, you can refine them with mustard or ketchup. The Bosnas are the hot dogs of Salzburg. You should try them at least once.
