We visited Obauer for the 6th time and as always in the past, for us the best dinner possibilities for a gourmet restaurant we do know in Austria. The family owned and managed restaurant is superb in terms of quality and service. You need to go for a Mende and stay overnight as the breakfast ist stunning. Without a doubt... More

One of the best meals I've ever had the pleasure of having! The food was very bold and this led to some odd combinations of flavours, but that were delicious. The staff were very attentive and helpful with understanding the menu (which was only in German). The restaurant was beautifully set and the backdrop is amazing. A much more relaxed... More

We arrived at Restaurant Obauer dressed for walking and traveling, following a morning hike to Castle Hohenwerfen. We were graciously greeted and led to one of the finest dining experiences we will ever have. Perfection is the goal of the chef-owners, and their precise attention to details is deliciously apparent. We requested a vegetarian lunch and, while we cannot tell... More

We came here after visiting the castle with our kids and it was just the break we needed. Totally unpretentious and friendly. Kids were welcomed without hesitation (kids menu!). We always wanted to come and are so happy we did. Food is excellent and the wine was perfect.

Went once by myself and again with the wife and four year old. I wore a t-shirt and jeans the first time and tried the lunch special. It was delicious. They do not have an English menu, but the staff pretends to be happy to explain everything. Sorry for not learning German. Went back a month later with the wife... More

A very classy restaurant tucked away in the town of Werfen where we probably had one of our best meals in Austria. The restaurant is a Member of "Les Grande Tables du Monde".
