Socializing in Salzburg is at the heart of the Blaue Gans and is what makes it the insider hotspot of town with a history of more than 660 years. Celebrating a taste of Austria, the key here is elegant simplicity with earthy local dishes, regional specialities and "Oma" inspired dishes. The vaulted restaurant echoes this ethos, serving a "Gastro-Stube" array of tasty delights, while the bar infused with jazz offers light cafe bites and the outdoor olive & fig-potted terrace is the in-spot of town - especially during the Festival days.
Chilled in heritage, Blaue Gans offers a contemporary and unpretentious eatery that has all the echoes of regional cooking, think foodie delights like "Tafelspitz” – slow cooked beef, the “Wiener Schnitzel”, delicious jam filled pancakes called “Powidldatschgerl” or the to-die-for “Topfenknödel”, sweet dumplings made from cream cheese.
For those of you a little more daring in taste, the place is also acclaimed for the speciality offal dishes, including Fried Calf’s Brain, or how about a little Knuckle of Deer, both of which are scrummy. As you would expect from a house of notoriety, the wine cellars are also epic.

Actually, it’s pretty much the same thing, isn’t it?read more
