St Peter Stiftskulinarium

Located in St Peter's Monastery, St Peter Stiftskulinarium holds the title of being the oldest restaurant in Central Europe, extending its warm hospitality for over 1200 years. Serving traditional Austrian dishes and creative specialities, such as monastery stew and St Peter's fish, the restaurant presents a unique culinary experience in an elegant and historic setting.


Eating and drinking in Salzburg are pleasures of the highest order. The immense variety of options includes beer gardens, traditional coffee houses, award-winning restaurants, bars, and cosy taverns. There is an incredible range of restaurants and food outlets in the city, so connoisseurs, nibblers, and nightclubbers can all be sure of finding something to suit their tastes. People eating out have some tough decisions to make in Salzburg as the county boasts a higher density of award-winning restaurants than any other Austrian province. Salzburg is also a pioneer of the organic food revolution. Around 38% of the agricultural operations here are run by certified Bio farmers. This enables the countless simple, down-to-earth restaurants and inns to serve Salzburg specialities that really do come from Salzburg. Four very special breweries in the city offer delicious and hearty meals as well as snacks in a convivial atmosphere. Visitors looking for a snack can look into one of the delicatessens in the heart of the Old Town, take a stroll around the Grünmarkt, or try the produce at the farmers’ markets held once a week on the Mirabellplatz and Papagenoplatz squares.
