This was my second visit to this restaurant - the first with my family. There is something, a little indescribable, about eating in a 1,200-year old restaurant. We went a little early for dinner (by local standards), around 5:30pm, to beat the crowds and shared the restaurant with just a few Americans with the same idea. It is located near the festungbahn, or funicular train that runs up to the Hohensalzburg fortress, so this is a nice place to stop after exploring it.
The menu consists mostly of local Austrian and German plates. We had a hard time deciding on what to order, but my wife had the tafelspitz (boiled beef) and I had the Hungarian gulasch - I'd recommend either to anybody. And to top things off, we had the Salzburger nockerl, of course (tip - order the nockerl with your main meal or wait 20-25 minutes for them to prepare it). Expect to pay 20~30 Euros per person for a meal with beverages.

The menu offers traditional Austrian cuisine. We ordered wild boar. It was the first time we every tried wild boar and it was delicious. The white wine we had with dinner is made by the Abbey’s vineyards. For desert the waiter recommended the Salbzurger Nockerln, which is a sweet soufflé that resembles three golden church domes in a baking dish. When then bring it to you table they cut it open and pour fruit sauce over it. We are chocolate eaters so it wasn’t very sweet, but it was still tasty and an interesting desert. Prices are reasonable with each dinner being about $15 to $25 per person. I suggest you plan on spending a good hour and a half to two hours here, as the food is delicious.
During our meal the restaurant filled up quickly. I think it is a bit of a tourist place since it seemed like tour busses full of people came in for dinner. Until that point, we thought we had quite a find. Still, the unique atmosphere and historic surroundings make for a memorable dining experience. They must be doing something right to stay in business over 1000 years.
