The fact that great cuisine can also be completely low-key is reflected in the refreshing verve with which Iris and Jürgen Vigne have invigorated Restaurant Pfefferschiff since taking it over in 2010.


Whether for a special family occasion, birthday party or a romantic date – in the very personal ambience created by this comfortable mix of historical cultural legacy and modern art, guests feel completely at ease, pure and simple. Lovingly designed dining rooms and what is probably one of the most beautiful open-air restaurant spaces in Salzburg, invite diners to linger and savor every delectable moment.

The atmosphere, which, for a top-notch restaurant, is exceptionally relaxed, is appreciated not least by many international guests, as well as locals who have long since also become regulars.


The cuisine here is distinguished in particular by enjoyable, exciting creations, always conceived with a view to tasteful harmony.

A wine list of over 680 vintages features an extensive spectrum of Austrian as well as international labels. The main focus is, of course, domestic Austrian wines, including some rare years that truly sparkle.
