A quaint family run restaurant and B&B in a quiet residential neighborhood near downtown Sopron. The husband serves the food while the wife cooks. There are quite a few excellent restaurants in Sopron, but this one may be the best. They serve traditional Hungarian fare. The carp soup with beans and cabbage is outstanding. All of the portions are generous. They have a great selection of Hungarian wines. When we asked about the red wines, the owner brought us three different wines to try gratis. All were excellent. The owner speaks excellent English. The wall is plastered with culinary awards. You can easily taste how they earned them. Prices are amazingly modest.

A charming small romatic place with excellent wine and a small but fine series of food. I loved the lamb with polenta and the pancake coated salmon with safran risotto was also very nice, and an eyecatcher. A bit expensive though.

Gasthaus zur Dankbarkeit

The inn known as “Zur Dankbarkeit” (“The Gratitude”) has been a beloved classic for a long time in the Pannonian restaurant scene. It is a popular meeting place for everyone who loves delicious, down-to-earth food.

Reviewed By mivg - Vienna, Austria

This restaurant is a real hidden gem. It is a family run restaurant offering excellent food and service. They also have wonderful wines from their vineyards. There are seasonal variety built into the menu and some favorite standards. To begin with, order the wonderful Jewish liver pate…to die for.
I have been there often will go many times more.

Papa Joe's Saloon & Steakhouse

Reviewed By Mark K - Budaors, Hungary

During our short stay in Sopron, we tested the top restaurants here: this steakhouse won't disappoint you (maybe just a bit). Service, pries and the atmosphere are all good, however the steaks we tested were not excellent: maybe this is a one-off glitch, but instead of medium, all 3 were slightly over-cooked. In case of steaks, even seconds count, and these steaks were not perfect, sorry. You may find other food as well, but most probably you visit a steakhouse for the variety of steaks. Wine-list is OK, you can find a good match with steaks.

We travelled across the border from Austria to Hungary for a day and chose this cellar restaurant for lunch. Great selection of dishes, huge servings and really delicious! Really lovely atmosphere with red and white checked tablecloths and brick vaulted ceiling. Definitely a good choice!

Reviewed By ZahtevniGost - Ljubljana, Slovenia

My first visit with gourmet friends some five years ago left me with truly good impressions, even though just one evening following the famous (then) Michelin starred restaurant on the other side of Neusiedl lake. So I brought here my family (all grownups) for a late summer lunch even though the Austrian restaurant reviewers at Falstaff have recently notably reduced their score.
Parking right opposite easy to find. Temperatures truly summer high, so we went to the small Terrace (»garden«) in the back where the air was far cooler. The waitress only came to the restaurant when we were already seated. It was an afternoon hour between lunch and dinner, but the restaurant boasts being open for business throughout the day, so I was a bit surprised. Restrooms nice and very well kept.
Unfortunately, it seems that also the chef was taking an afternoon nap home at the time, as the dishes ordered and served were well below our expectations and even the current reduced Falstaff score. We were the single guests, so I would have expected great attention to our glasses, but… Wine list covers Burgenland very well, but somehow it proves my case that emerging wine tourism in the region still has a lot to learn from Italy and Spain – in its very center you do not expect to pay abominable markups for local wine produced within a twenty miles circle. Double the price in the local wine store? Shame! So instead of Tiglat we drank To with the producer only 2 miles away. As to the cuisine level, 9 on a 1 to 20 scale is more than enough for what we tasted that afternoon.
Again, it could be that the kitchen was running on ancillary staff during those hours. Perhaps the waitress had at the time also some additional work to do, like making up the tables inside. But then, I would kindly recommend the owners to close down the restaurant part between lunch and dinner and avoid such guests' disappointments. This is not a cheap fast food eatery!

we didn't like it today, first we had to wait for the waiter in an almost empty restaurant, then the soup was not hot and the main course, roasted beef with pasta was average, sticky pasta like heated in the micro wave and an orange sauce sweet from the carrots.

Wia z'Haus

Wie schon der doppelsinnige Name sagt, verspricht das Wirtshaus eine Wohlfühl-Atmosphäre „wie zu Hause“. Gemütlich und urig eingerichtet werden die Gäste mit regionalen Köstlichkeiten und guten burgenländischen Weinen verwöhnt. Das idyllisch gelegene Gasthaus mit Vinothekbar offeriert eine Schmankerlküche, die durchaus auch zu kreativen kulinarischen Ausflügen einlädt. Besonders die durchgehend warme Küche und ein wunderschöner Gastgarten lassen keine Wünsche offen.

Eventhough it belongs to the Falkensteiner golf and spa, it is stil very austrian from design and taste. However good quality anyway, great kitchen.

Tercia Hubertus

Reviewed By P-Mischer

Good location, but outside of the city center (20 mins walk). Hungarian atmosphere, good service with a lot of explanation for the non-Hungarians. Menu not too fancy or long, but enough selection (except maybe for desert). Good wine list. Prices higher than average, but still very acceptable (ca. 20€ per person, incl. a bit of wine) ans shared desert. Recommended.
