Gasthof Weisses Kreuz
Not many people know of the specialities the Balakn cuisine has to offer. But visitors to the "Weißes Kreuz", a few steps away from the "Kapitel Square", will soon learn to appreciate the tasty dishes that this gem of a restaurant has to offer. Even the harshest critics of Southern food will have to admit after the first few bites that these meals are extraordinary good. In quite a rural interior the "Weißes Kreuz" offers perfectly prepared "Raznici" (meat on a stick) or "Pleskavica" with lots of spice and onions. The restaurant has developed a high reputation over the years and I can only recommend everyone who likes eating to pay the "Weißes Kreuz" a visit. It is truly an experience!
I had been hearing about the food here for years. On our last trip, we finally tried to find this place, and eventually succeeded. Though they were closed on the first night we tried.
The dark, pub-like atmosphere in the room in which we were seated was kind of fun--smoky, but fun. The food was so-so; I'd prefer more traditional Austrian cuisine. The service person, a young woman of seeminly 17, was indifferent at best. Despite using my decent German, she seemed to not understand until several repetitions. They did serve Bavarian dunkle weiss beer, though, which was a plus. Prices were modest.
Had the weather been warmer, we would have enjoyed eating in the outside seating area--it looked like one of those grape-vine covered terraces.
This restaurant was my favorite during my 3 month stay in Salzburg. The best value is the sampler of various balkan specialities, though someone familiar with Balkan cuisine will be able to find many other favorites. Service is fast and efficient.
