Fodor's Expert Review Bärenwirt
Regionally sourced, top-quality ingredients elevate traditional Austrian dishes in this inviting Wirtshaus. Since 1663 locals have shared mugs of beer from the neighboring Augustiner Kloster Mülln brewery in these warmly lighted, wood-paneled rooms, adorned with traditional Salzburg-style heating ovens and cushioned benches. Request a table in the cozy main floor side room and enjoy the juicy Backhendl (breaded, fried chicken) as an entrée or salad with Styrian pumpkin seed oil dressing, Wiener Schnitzel (veal or pork), cheesy Kasnocken, and beef goulash with a “bear-size” dumpling. Seasonal specialties highlight springtime Spargelzeit (asparagus) and the fall wild game hunt. Sip housemade schnapps before enjoying Kaiserschmarren (a fluffy pancake shredded, pan fried with roasted plums, topped with powdered sugar).
