Innsbruck : Dining at the Golden Eagle

Like Weisses Kreuz, the Goldener Adler (loosely translated as the “Golden Eagle”) is a historic inn which once housed Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1773. The historic inn dates back to 1390 and it is also home to one of Innsbruck’s most famous restaurant of the same name.

The restaurant is located on both the first and second floor of the guesthouse (ground floor and first floor in other definitions) and offers Tyrolean cuisine using local produce.

Goldener Adler - Kartoffelrahmsuppe mit Pfifferligen

Firstly, I had the Kartoffelrahmsuppe mit Pfifferligen (3.60 EUR), Potato Cream Soup with Mushrooms. A hearty and flavoursome creamy soup.

Goldener Adler - Tiroler Zopfbraten

For main courses, my younger brother had the “Tiroler Zopfbraten” (17.50 EUR), Slices of fillet of pork, turkey and beef (made after an old traditional recipe) served with bread dumpling and vegetables. I found this rather ordinary and too meaty for my taste. Couldn’t remember the flavours accept that all three are distinct from each other (which is good).

Goldener Adler - Tiroler Gebingsforellenfilet

I had the “Tiroler Gebingsforellenfilet” (15.50 EUR), Mountain Trout Fillet amandine with parsley potatoes. In contrast to my younger brother’s main course, this was really good. Perhaps, one of the best fish dishes I had thus far. The trout meat was very succulent and very well-seasoned. The addition of sliced almonds gives it a nice crunchy bite and the use of orange adds a refreshing hint of citrus to the dish. The parsley potatoes were nicely done too.

Goldener Adler - Hausgemachter Apfelstrudel

We ended our meal with a Hausgemachter Apfelstrudel (3.00 EUR), the strudel’s pastry is a little thick and wraps around a generous filling of caramelized apples with cinnamon. The whipped cream seemed to give a smooth texture to the rich apple strudel.

The meal is not exactly the cheapest you could find in Innsbruck but it was decent. I was expecting less as it seemed like a tourist restaurant. Located just next to the Goldenes Dachl, you could head over for a meal if you are spending a short time in Innsbruck.
