Blaue Gans

Updated 08/26/2014

Fodor's Review

In a 500-year-old building with vaulted ceilings and windows looking out onto the bustling Getreidegasse, the restaurant of the Blaue Gans Hotel offers innovative, modern interpretations of traditional Austrian cooking. The fresh flavors are evident in dishes like the house smoked Lachsforelle (salmon trout) and perfectly prepared beef carpaccio. There are always vegetarian choices. Ask your server for suggestions from the expertly selected Austrian and German wine list. The modern elegance extends to the setting, and the service is top-notch. Peer into the building's history through the dining room's glass floor, which reveals an old cellar, site of the oldest inn in Salzburg, mentioned in documents from the 15th century.

Great location, service and ambiance; menu change unfortunate

This was always one of my favorite places--whether at the inside restaurant or the outside garden restaurant in back. The service is still excellent, and the atmosphere wonderful. However, they changed from predominantly traditional austria fare to "art nouveau" type food, at higher prices and lesser amounts. Too bad--their sauerbraten and other austria dishes were the best.
