A couple of steps
led down to a bar with a few tables for drinks. Just past the bar, a low arched doorway led to a small dining area where four tables were arranged along the back wall. The dark furniture was old but well cared for and the white walls adorned with art work gave it a bright and cheery feel.
The menu was hand written and bound in a small book. There were only a few pages of selections and since it was all in German, the friendly waitress translated for us as best she could. Bea ordered sauerkraut quiche, which was served with
a small green salad. The thick quiche was stuffed with sauerkraut, chopped potatoes and
pork and although it was good, it was a bit dry. My potato goulash was delicious. The
large plate was filled with chunks of sausage and potatoes in a tomato cream and paprika sauce and was quite spicy. Tracey enjoyed the grilled sausages stuffed with mild cheese and a side salad. As a treat we ordered hot chocolate and it was made from scratch. Not overly sweet, it was served with real whipped cream and definitely satisfied our chocolate
Prices were very reasonable with 5€ being the average entree cost. On a
sunny day an outside table would be the perfect place to relax and people watch while
enjoying the mountain scenery and the scenic charms of Hallstatt.
