Food was OK -- regular Austrian menu in the area. Place was cozy and welcoming, but the staff sacrificed warmness for efficiency. Surely, the food came in very quickly. In a town full of tourists (like us!), the restaurant is OK.

Well the food was ok (not bad, not exceptional, but definitely a 4), the Problem is the service: our waitress was making us nervous passing by every 2' and asking what we want to order - Lady I didn't even have the time to read the menu! Sometimes she would order for us, so we had to tell her to... More

Came here for lunch twice. Where most of the eating options in Halstatt are in hotels, this place was a nice departure. Eating by the lake, the food was hearty and not expensive. It is usually very busy, and the waiters may take some time to come to you and may at times appear hassled, but they were as efficient... More

We ate here three times during almost a week in Hallstatt, once on the terrace by the lake and twice in the ancient inner booths. Staff were friendly and quick, with dishes coming out with no wait. The terrace is very pretty in the evening, right by the water's edge, and lit by chinese lanterns. Inside, the Hotel restaurant is... More

The BRÄUGASTHOF is located beside the Hallstatt lake, fantastic lakes views there. The Staff are nice, helpful, friendly, food was very delicious.

Enjoyed two dinners here. Both were excellent and the service was quick and friendly. You sit beside the lake so it is a great location. The menu selections are wonderfully Austrian so we tried different things on different nights and enjoyed them all.

In a cool and cloudy day in Hallstatt, with my hands cold, I tried this restaurant. Cool saloon (a really old space), quick service, share tables. With a lot of traditional Austrian foods, I order a Goulash Soup (amazing) and beer! In a few minutes I was ready to the cool weather again

Great dishes, outstanding views. Just be patient with the staff, there are only a few of them and everyone wants to eat here, so it can get busy. 1 appetizer, 2 entrees, several rounds of drinks and dessert expect around 60Euros. All well worth it!

At one point, I think this might have been a quiet and romantic outdoor restaurant on Lake Hallstatt with gorgeous views. Its still lovely, but now its mobbed by tourists, some whom are louder than others. And some whom smoke a lot! Be prepared to share a table if its busy. Regardless, you'll get some good traditional Austrian food here... More
