For centuries, patrons have satisfied hunger and quenched thirst within these walls, which date back over 600 years. The restaurant got its current face a century ago, with ceiling paintings of the namesake geese, wood paneling, and wrought iron lamps. (The décor is more modern in the adjacent bar area, with stainless steel and light wood complementing contemporary design.) An extensive wine archive downstairs means diners can take their pick from over 1,600 vintages, to accompany dishes like pike-perch wrapped in crispy pancetta with steamed pepper and polenta crème, or goose breast with red cabbage, creamy mashed potatoes, and chestnuts. Service is exceptionally attentive. The restaurant and hotel were refurbished in 2012, which has also meant an upgrade in quality and innovation on the menu. While the prices are definitely old town Salzburg, it's more reasonable here than some neighbors, and the food is worth every penny.
