This restaurant is as popular with locals as it is with travellers. The traditional dining rooms on the arcaded ground floor and the summer-only terrace are popular places to sit, the former more romantic and private and the latter good for people-watching. Start with a glass of Sekt (an Austrian sparkling wine) flavored with a dash of cassis—a kir royale—as you peruse the menu. The kitchen takes a modern approach to traditional dishes, so the pork medallions
are topped with ham and Gorgonzola, and the veal steaks are ladled with a creamy herb sauce that's as steeped in flavour as the restaurant is steeped in history.

We had a very nice meal at the Goldener Adler. The fish was excellent and we had a nice recommended wine, but the desserts were not memorable and we would skip them the next time (worst Apple Strudel of the trip - mushy). The quality of the food was good, but no better than Weiss Rossl and that meal cost us half the price.
