Schnaitl Bräu: Gasthaus run by a small regional brewery
The restaurant is owned and run by one of the many small regional breweries in the Innviertel, a part of Upper Austria which was for some time under Bavarian rule. The nicest Bavarian legacy here are the numerous breweries which often brew a better beer than just over the frontier in Bavaria. This brewery in the village Gundertshausen, only 6 km from Fúcking, is one of them.
Favorite Dish: Anjutka and Globetrott ordered a dish of excellent fresh mushrooms and I had a "Krustenbraten" of pork made in local style with a clear Czech touch. For dessert we had a huge portion of "Kaiserschmarrn" (translated into English: "Emperors Nonsense"). And we enjoyed much of the great beer, of course.
If you can not get a room in Lindlbauer - they offer accommodation as well, but more expensive than Lindlbauer - check the website for that.
Waldgasthaus Lindlbauer: Good local game specialities
The restaurant is in a quiet and idyllic setting only 200 m from the last houses of Fúcking. The food is local with an emphasis of game dishes, the staff is friendly and the food is good.
Favorite Dish: We had at our first visit for example a great game brawn with vinegar, herbs and the famous dark green Styrian pumpkin seed oil (3,90 EUR), a Wiener Schnitzel with potatoes and mixed salad (5 EUR) and a nice and original rare regional dessert (blueberry omelette with whipped cream, 4,50 EUR, good to feed two persons). The beer is Stiegl from Salzburg. Dont expect to get here the probably soon upcoming new beer "Fùcking Hell" (see the entry under "Shopping") simply because in Austria most restaurants are closely tied to a particular brand of beer - which in this specific case is not too bad because Stiegl is one of the better beers in Austria.
If you happen to spoil your outfit with the dark green pumpkin seed oil (as I did it on my VT-T-shirt) dont get desperate if you are not able to wash that out - just let the sun intensely shine on it for a couple of hours, it will disappear, believe me, this is the only remedy against spots of pumpkin seed oil.
Entenwirt: A Citroen 2CV, ducks, lamb and other nice food
Several VT-ers, among them my VT-friend dannebro were already eating here and liked it very much. I think I shall try it myself, too, when I am next time on the way to Fùcking.
Favorite Dish: No wonder that duck dishes are very popular here but they have also lamb and other nice things, all prepared in the generous and tasty way which is typical for a good countryside Gasthaus in Upper Austria. And other than in the rather nearby Salzburg all for quite reasonable prices.
Waldgasthaus Lindlbauer: Nice Meals - Reasonable Prices
The Lindlbauer is quite typical for the non-touristic countryside inns in Upper Austria. This means always hearty food and good beer (Bavaria is only one hour walking distance away and this area - the Innviertel - was quite a time Bavarian and still today hosts the highest number of breweries of all Austian regions) in an authentic and not fancy local atmosphere. The unique of Lindlbauer is the game reserve behind a fence right behind the house so itis no wonder that there are always some game dishes on the menu and Lindlbauer is quite famous for it in the region.
Favorite Dish: We had here a lunch on the terrace on a wonderful warm late Summer day. I saw on the blackboard the "plate of the day" which was a nice Wiener Schnitzel with potatoes and salad for very friendly 5 EUR. The same quality you get in touristic regions in Austria for around 10 EUR. Lothar had something more sophisticated -a game brawn with the dark green pumpkin seed oil - delicious! One of the desserts on the menu was a bilberry pancake with whipped cream more than enough to feed two for 4,50 EUR.
Restaurants? What restaurants?
This little town of five houses has no restaurant that I was able to see. That said, there are plenty of *larger* towns in the area that have places to eat. I saw several signs for an Italian restaurant when we got lost in Ernsting and turned around. Try there!
