Had a lovely lunch here, wanting to try the Wiener schnitzel and bratwurst, and we were not disappointed. We ordered two salads between the four of us, which were huge! All the food was totally delicious, and hearty portions. Staff were attentive and timed the service well. The restaurant is well set with rustic wooden tables at different heights, and... More

Came for dessert and dinner on separate days. The food is excellent. Ordered the wedding soup, goulash and a meat platter dish (can't remember). It was all good and substantial. Also had the souffle for dessert which was delicious.

Went here on the recommendation of our hotel. We weren't disappointed. It was quaint and charming and had a real authentic feel to it. Great service, too.

The staff could not have been kinder, when we entered. We miss our reservation by 20 minutes because we got lost on the route and our table is given away, however they allowed us to sit at a perfectly nice table which we enjoyed and it was close to the bar. The restaurant itself is very quaint and extremely comfortable... More

Fantastic food, very good service and reasonable prices in a very good location. Unfortunately it is almost always full, we were lucky to get a table for two, but after that we never achieved even to make a reservation...So reserve well in advance!!

The waiter was absolutely un polite when we asked to switch one of the dish during the order. Spinach dumplings were fairly good, the cordon bleu really low quality. It doesn't deserve all the good opinions reported in here

Alter Fuchs (Old Fox) is a lively, relaxed and very informal restaurant, rich in atmosphere. The main dining room is situated in a cellar, large and very traditional in appearance, with arched stone ceilings and simple wooden furniture. It's obviously a very popular place and I would advise making a reservation to ensure getting a seat. The service is excellent;... More

Huge shout out to the amazing staff here, in particular, Stanko. Above and beyond for the 3 consecutive nights we visited. Reservations are a must at peak times. Thank you very much.

Great service. Huge portions. Wonderful food. We had soup and rabbit and pork knuckle. All of the food was great. The server was one of the friendliest and most attentive we had after a week in Austria. Highly recommend.

Atmosphere is very cozy and the food is not expensive. They don't have any vegetarian dishes except for a small salad and didn't want to vary from the menu at all. It was a good value for the money $28 Euros for both of us but there was a frustrating wait for a table when we got there around 8... More
