Salzburg food Insider tip: In the Brunnauer restaurant you can eat well in Salzburg

The Brunnauer restaurant is located in the Villa Ceconi in the Nonntal. From there you have a view of the Hohensalzburg Fortress. He and his wife have been running the Brunnauer restaurant below the Hohensalzburg Fortress for a few years now. 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.

The Salzburg restaurant Schloss Aigen

A Salzburg restaurant for Austrian cuisine: the Gasthof Schloss Aigen

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”


Eat in Salzburg – insider tip: Enjoy 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.

The audience is mixed in the "Fidelen Affen". Young people (students?) are sitting in a corner of the restaurant 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 bar tables under the vaults. This caters to customers who need a short break after shopping. This is where guests enjoy their beer before going home after a day of shopping. We sit in one of the alcoves and enjoy our warm soup. This does you good after a walk through the wintry cold of Salzburg, as does the Salzburger Bratl with bread dumplings, boiled potatoes and vegetables. Fidelen Affen offers hearty home cooking made from Austrian ingredients.

Eat well in Salzburg in the wheat beer brewery Die Weisse

Away from the old town of Salzburg lies the wheat beer brewery Die Weisse. As the name suggests, it is a brewery. However, there is also a rustic tavern where, in addition to the homemade wheat beers, hearty food from Austria's regions plays a role. We had lunch at the Weißbierbrauerei. The beer hall ambience is hearty. The kitchen serves specialties from Austria that you don't see on every menu. The beers from the in-house brewery go well with this. This guarantees a culinary experience of a special kind.

We ate a fried chicken with potato and cucumber salad and a plate of Innviertler dumplings on sauerkraut. These were filled with minced meat. The choice of beers to go with this meal was interesting. As we were there for lunch we opted for mixed beer drinks. In addition to a shandy, we had the choice between a Berliner Weisse (white beer with currant juice) or a Russen Weisse (white beer with lemonade). Alternatively, there was a Negeranten Weisse (white beer with cola). In the future, however, it would be better to come up with a different name for it. That is what “political correctness” demands. Anyway, I hated the name. There was also a Hollodri Weisse to choose from, for which wheat beer is mixed with elderberry juice.

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


Bosna Salzburg - No restaurant food, but eat well and cheaply in the old town of Salzburg

The Bosna Grill at Getreidegasse 33 does not offer restaurant food. However, the long queues that form in front of it day after day prove that this Balkan Grill in a side street off Getreidegasse is a Salzburg institution. The sausage rolls, which have been sold there since 1950, are recommended by almost every city guide with whom we have traveled around the city of Mozart.

The sausages were invented by Zanko Todoroff. The native Bulgarian made them for the first time in 1949. Word soon got around how good they taste. Just a year later, he opened his grill in the narrow passage between Universitätsplatz and Getreidegasse. Since then, locals and visitors alike have been making pilgrimages there every day. You need a lot of patience around lunchtime. The sausages come in baked white bread rolls. Fill them with chopped onion, parsley and spices. If you want, you can refine it with mustard or ketchup. The Bosnas are the hot dogs of Salzburg. You should definitely try them at least once.
