Traditional Austrian cuisine

A kitchen where Austrian food is still prepared in a traditional way and prepared with real ingredients can be found in the Hotel Goldener Ochs.

Even Franz Lehár, composer of operetta, knew where the best, tastiest food could be found

This 4-star hotel and restaurant Goldener Ochse is one of the oldest restaurants and hotels in the imperial spa town of Bad Ischl and the Salzkammergut. There is hardly any other hotel nearby that can offer such a diverse Austrian cuisine. Chef Bernhard Eppinger and Klaus Schweiger, the senior landlord personally, always strive to serve the best quality products of regional origin and to treat you with savory dishes and easily wholesome delicacies.

Take a seat in the historical Lehár room, in the winter garden flooded with light, in one of the two outdoor dining areas during summer or in the very cozy restaurant. The team of the Goldener Ochs is looking forward to seeing you!
