Salzburg Restaurants

Gasthof Auerhahn

The Auerhahn's cozy, rustic dining room rates a red toque in Gault Millau. The seasonal menu features contemporary Austrian and Italian cuisine, with an emphasis on fresh fish. For dessert, try the famous Topfenknödel, a light, warmed dumpling made from curd cheese, nicely offset by a cool, slightly sharp cranberry puree. A four-course menu is €34, and five-courses cost €44. Prices are €54/67 with wine pairings. A la carte main dishes are €18-22.
