RESTAURANT OF THE WEEK
A PERSONAL REVIEW OF RESTAURANTS AROUND THE WORLD

ST. PETER
SALZBURG, AUSTRIA

This is a very old restaurant.  Benedictine monks founded the establishment way back in A.D. 803 in an abbey.

Some of the rooms are carved into the hillside and have a cave like atmosphere.  The place is usually packed, even in the winter, so reservations would be a good idea.

Typical "down home" Austrian cooking is featured here.  Meat eaters will be well served by such dishes as roast pork in gravy with sauerkraut.  Braised oxtail with mushrooms is usually on the menu.  And surprisingly there are a number of vegetarian dishes featured on the menu.  Our son-in-law sampled semolina dumplings with noodles and some sort of parsley sauce and said they were quite good.

Appetizers are interesting and if you order a carafe of the house wine, the way it's presented is quite interesting.  It is placed on the table in a glass decanter not unlike a transfusion device is stationed next to a hospital bed, although on a much smaller scale, of course.  Check it out!


Our Daughter Christie & Husband Russ

While we were too full to try the desserts, they come highly recommended.  The place is supposedly famous for them.

St. Peter is alive with atmosphere and history, not to mention excellent food. 

For much more on this excellent establish, check out their website.  Again--I'd highly recommend reservations.
