You'll find many more tourists than locals at this pan-European restaurant just off the busy Getreidegasse. What has Till Eulenspiegel, a 14th-century jester, to do with Salzburg? Not much, but when Hans Grassl opened this restaurant in 1950, he decided to go for it. Spiffily restored, the restaurant allures with rustic wooden furniture, old folio volumes, antique weapons, and open fireplaces. Tables gleaming with white linen are set in wonderful nooks and crannies reached
by odd staircases and charming salons, like the tiny "women's apartment." Generous portions of traditional dishes satisfy travelers.

This restaurant is like a little house, with several small rooms. The room we ate in was fascinating, with beautiful woodwork and rustic paintings. The food was perfectly seasoned and prepared.

We arrived after having taken in a concert just as they were closing the kitchen. The waiter must have taken pity on us, because he conferred with the chef and told us to take our time ordering and not to worry about keeping him late. The food was very tasty, the restaurant itself was story-book German/Austrian and we enjoyed our meal here. The location is terrific--in the Altstadt near the Mozart birth house. We recommend it highly.

The restaurant is in a tiny house which extends up and up into various rooms. We weren't quite sure about the place when we walked in as no-one seemed to be available to seat us so we just continued up the steps. A waiter seated us in a quiet room on the top floor which we had all to ourselves. Looking around, the place is quaint and charming, but somewhat cluttered. Surprisingly all of our food was excellent! We got the fish and the prawns and
both were absolutely delicious. With a bottle of wine our meal was a good value. We were travelling about the same time as Denise (see below) but had a different experience.
