Restaurant recommendations for Vienna and/or Salzburg

My husband and I will be staying in Vienna and then Salzburg in 2 weeks. We are looking for recommendations for restaurants. Good food is most important, but we would also like to get a true Austrian experience with the meal. Moderately priced - inexpensive restaurant recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Figlmuller's is fun for atmosphere and huge weiner schnitzel (overcovers the plate). Demel's is very nice for posh coffee and torte experience. The Sacher torte is famous from the Sacher Hotel--you can go into the take-out shop around the corner. Check the rant/rave restaurant section for Fodors for others' comments.

Go to the Vienna Woods or near Krems and stop at a local cafe for the local wine and nice atmosphere.

When we were in Salzburg in 1998, our hotel desk clerk recommended a great little "homestyle" restaurant called "Alter Fuchs." As I recall, it was across the river from the old town center and full of local diners in a neighborhood that got more residential as you walked along the street.

In addition to warm,light wood panelling and carvings, there were little glassed-in displays of taxidermy stuffed animals, similar to tiny dioramas in a Natural History museum. Each one had a fox inside (fuch); one was even embedded in the floor!

The food was hearty and delicious Austrian fare and the beer and local wine selections abundant. It was one of our best Salzburg evenings; hope you can find and enjoy it, too!

If you want a moderately priced, but good meal, try the Gasthotel zur goldenene Ente -- the Golden Duck.
It is located on Goldgasse not far from Mozart's statue.
We stayed at the hotel last year and ate most of our meals there because it was convenient and good. The desserts are quite good. Elsewhere on these pages Rex described a dessert he and his friends ordered that required advanced notice.
Robert Dürnle who is in charge and does the planning and order taking is very, very good at what he does.
Robert by the way speaks good English.
