St. Gilgen has no shortage of pack-em-in feed-em-schnitzel type restaurants, most of which look as if they started out as characterful buildings, but which are now configured much like their food, for utility rather than character. Wirt am Gries sets itself apart. Discreetly positioned down a side street, the unviting alleyway entrance opens into a spacious courtyard, with well spaced tables for al fresco dining when weather permits. The indoor restaurant also exudes a higher standard than its near neighbours on the main street and lake front.

The menu is varied, and traditional, but quality of both food and service are a cut above the rest. There are restaurants with better views, but if its character and good food you are looking for, served in relaxed surroundings, Wirt am Gries is the place.

We arrived in St. Gilgen on All Saint's Day when most shops and restaurants were closed. At our hotel, we were told that the Wirt am Gries would be open for lunch only. When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed by the owner, Herr Tritscher, and shown to our table. My husband had a pan fried Saibling coated in crushed pumpkin seeds while my friend and I had a delicious green salad with fried chicken breast. Everything tasted as if it had just come from the garden or the lake -- so fresh. We shared a mouth watering Eispalatschinken for dessert and it was just perfect.

I would recommend the Wirt am Gries to anyone who likes freshly prepared Austrian cuisine in a lovely setting with gracious service.
