Come in and be our guests!


Iris and Jürgen Vigne extend a warm welcome to the Pfefferschiff restaurant at gates of the city of Salzburg.

Mr and Mrs Vigne have been running the ‘Pfefferschiff’ since they took over in 2010. Over the past two decades it has been one of Austria’s best and most highly distinguished award-winning restaurants (Gault Millau, VIP Gourmet Guide, Guide Michelin, A La Carte).

The Vignes share their culinary passion with their guests; a love of select regional produce and the enjoyment of premium wines.

The quaint 17th century building exudes a truly pleasant and homely atmosphere. The perfection of the cuisine and service is very tangible without taking centre stage. After all, this is not a show – everything here is genuine and heartfelt. ‘Our guests are our passion’ best describes the philosophy of Vigne family and their team.
