This has been an interesting weekend in the making. I originally wanted to have a nice relaxing soak in Banff Hot Springs, but when we got there, the pools were closed for maintenance. So, we decided to go out to Radium instead as we knew we’d be back in Banff within a few weeks. During our weekend stay here, we dined at Old Salzburg Restaurant which we’ve driven by numerous times, but finally stopped in.
We were greeted right away this lovely evening and got seated in a perfect little table. They took our order and brought us this awesome bread basket. It was quite tasty, for a bread actually! I wasn’t even that hungry but wanted to eat so I can go back to the hot springs!
I actually ordered their special, which was a special take on their Old Salzburg Pfandl with extras! They made their gravy with their local beer and added a piece of lamb! This was amazing as there was grilled chicken, beef and lamb in their hot skillet topped with gravy!
Another of our favourites to have when we’re in an European restaurant is to order schnitzel, so we had an order of Jagerschnitzel which as usual is a breaded pork with ham & bacon topped with a mushroom sauce. The Jagerschnitzel here was truly exceptional as the crispness of the pan fried breaded pork stayed crispy till the end even with gravy.
We were super stuffed as the portions were massive and at a fantastic price, it made the dinner very enjoyable. Becuase I enjoyed myself, that’s when I order desserts… so, we ordered their Apple Strudel with Ice Cream to split. This was absolutely something we didn’t need, but I really wanted. Thin layers of pastry that wrapped thin warm apple splices with a perfect little sauce inside, with the side of ice cream – you just can’t lose! So, when in Radium, do it! Let me tell you though, I was quite self conscious of myself when in a bathing suit right after in the hot springs, but the nice thing is, no one knows me here! 🙂
Overall, this was an amazing dinner and it was the perfect meal on a cold fall day. The food, price, service was all awesome and the atmosphere was very warm and intimate. They can accommodate larger groups as well so it’s just a great place to go for everyone!
