I had dinner with some friends, end of August at Erlhof. Food was fine and that was to be expected at this price level. Unfortunately the manager is very arrogant and unfriendly. That´s why we will not return as guests. The dinner at Erlhof turned out to be very unpleasant. When getting up from my seat I found chewing gum,... More

We were staying at the hotel so eating here was just the easiest thing to do for us and we were very pleasantly surprised at the standard of food, the attentive staff and the huge wine list. The menu was very interesting with Italian and Austrian influences. We were given free hors d'oeuvre which delicious and quite unexpected. The meals... More

The food and service is excellent. The local wines served was delicious and we enjoyed every dish - especially the Salzburger Nockerl desert! Delightful.

Looking for a decent lunch, tripadvisor recommendations lead us here. What we got was fine dining in a marvelous setting. The quality of the food that was served to us was simply amazing! An absolute must if you are in town. ...and take your time to enjoy the scenery :)

I stayed at this hotel which happens to be one of the loveliest hotels I have ever stayed in (be sure to ask for a room facing the lake) but besides this their restaurant is one of the best places I have ever eaten. The service is extremely nice and the foos is just simply to die for. The salmon,... More

We called by whilst out on a bike ride and boy are we glad we did. The staff were very accommodating, the food was terrific and reasonably priced and the view is wonderful.

Even though we were there out of season there was not a single empty table. No wonder! Food was high quality and delicious. Service on top of it, was extraordinary. Nice selection of Austrian wines. Line caught trout - "Forelle" was so deliciously prepared, so was local chanterelle soup. Reservation is a must.

just back from ski trip to Zell am See. stayed at Erlhof for first two nights. This is very typical Austrian hospitality and experience. The property is delightful, great location near the lake with fab views and is teaming with history (the real Von Trapp family used to own it..!!) The current owners (husband and wife team) are very pleasant... More

I've been assured by many locals that this is one of the best restaurants in the region but our visit was extremely disappointing. Perhaps it's better in the ski season. The room and decor is nothing to write home about, typical Austrian but here lacking in any personal touches or sense of occasion. The food is very ordinary for the... More

We had driven past the Erlhof a number of times whilst on our holidays in Zell am See (we have an apartment there) and thought that it looked a lovely place to go. My husband was then trying to find somewhere nice to take me as a surprise for my birthday and took a risk on the Erlhof based on... More
