After a day discovering Gmunden our local hosts said that this restaurant served typical Austrian food. We all ordered the local fresh water filleted fish with vegetables and potatoes. We ordered a bottle of red wine and a bottle of white wine. The fish was moist and cooked with thyme and Rosemary. The bill came to 129 Euros. We sat outside in the sunshine in the balcony. Inside was very interesting, little nooks and crannies. Very clean toilets. The only thing that marred the visit was that the people behind us lit a cigarette. We have been spoilt by the complete ban in the U.K. on smoking in and outside of a restaurant.

Our first visit to Gmunden and our hosts recommended the place "locals go to" for traditional food, ambience and a fair price. We got three "ticks" at Weinstube! We chose non smoking upstairs and fell in love with the dark wooded decor, the enormous ceramic heater, the decorations and the ancient feeling of the place....everything we love about back street local eateries. We found the service to be helpful and very efficient.....our lack of German met with patient explanations and a few sympathethic smiles. We were surrounded by locals all enjoying huge servings of varied traditional dishes. My minced venison, potatoes and vegetables was just oozing flavour and so delicious. My wife chose the roast pork, dumplings and sauerkraut....all delicious with the pork being an absolute standout with flavour and tenderness. We had no room for dessert and looking at other patrons' plates, they were fed with generous proportion. The menu is not extensive but we often find this occurs when the right formula is met with regard to traditional food prepared properly, cooked expertly, and delivered with genuine gladness that it is appreciated. In honesty, I would have no hesitation to eat here again and again if I lived in Gmunden. In travels in many countries is year, our meals were up there with the very best with regard to flavour, tenderness, balance and value for money.

We went here for dinner one evening. It was a little smokier than we would have liked, but the food was delicious, they had a great wine menu, and the locals were really friendly and fun to hang with.

Local charm, warm and cozy lodge-like atmosphere. Delectable deer-sausage brat and sauerkraut main dish for less than 6 euros (WOW)! Austrian red wine is priced just right. Traditional German/Austrian salads with pickled veggies were tasty and fresh. We sat upstairs in non-smoking, which was just as welcoming as down. We are coming back for another meal before we leave Gmunden!
