Fodor's Expert Review Stiftskeller St. Peter
Legends swirl about the famous St. Peter's Beer Cellar. Locals claim that Mephistopheles met Faust here, others say Charlemagne dined here, and some believe Columbus enjoyed a glass of its famous Salzburg Stiegl beer just before he set sail for America in 1492. But there is no debating the fact that this place—first mentioned in a document dating back to 803—is Austria's oldest restaurant. Choose between the stately, dark-wood panel Prälatenzimmer (Prelates' Room) or one of several less formal banqueting rooms. Elegantly presented Austrian standards and international dishes made with top quality ingredients fill the menu.
