Very enjoyable lunch in this restaurant in a quiet square just off the main shopping area. Good choice of local cuisine. We really enjoyed the clear beef soup with cheese dumplings. Friendly staff spoke very good English.

We found this place in the Lonley Planet Guide and it was also recommended by a local. Was busy but service was quick. Food was good without being great and prices are reasonable.

We enjoyed lunch at Zirkelwirt on the recommendation of a local, and we weren't disappointed. The roast pork, dumplings and sauerkraut were all delicious. And, I liked the rustic ambiance of the small restaurant/garden seating. I will definitely return the next time I visit Salzburg.

Not too sure sorry. Reservation would be best to avoid disappointment. Was busy when I arrived but it was quiet when I left.

Sorry, not sure. We used the city bus, and it was a very short walk from the bus stop.
