Good food, good location, a bit expensive

The location is great, the service is great, and the food is above average for sure, but a little expensive. If work is picking up the tab this is an excellent place for lunch. Otherwise, the food is good but not quite worth the price. Maybe dinner is better, I don't know.

Was in a party of 12 invited by one of our VPs. Interesting very old building with stark modern interior that still manages to be cozy. Superb meal, 4 courses, with each one introduced in English by the very friendly and professional waitress. Fantastic evening!

I'm rating SalzHaus average not for the food, service or ambiance, but for the price / value. Everything we had was very nice - and very pricey. Service was good - but not excellent. Ambiance was fine, except we were stuck in a lower level room that was loud. Again, nothing wrong, but for a restaurant on the higher end... More

We made a reservation for a family dinner on a Friday night. We arrived around 7pm and the restaurant was starting to get busy. It is right on the Aare so quite a nice place for a summer evening meal with family or friends. The menu is probably a modern-fusion style with asian influences. This was great for me as... More

The Salzhaus provided a wonderful location for a recent wedding reception we attended. The food was creative and delicious. The waitstaff provided great service, with friendly attention to several requests from guests. This is a perfect location for a party in Solothurn.

The restaurant is at the upper end of the price range but the standard of cuisine more or less justifies this. My meal was sull of pleasant surposes in the way falvours had been mixed. i also drank a very good white merlot from Canton Ticino, which went very well with the chicken Cordon Bleu.

This superb restaurant is just around the corner of our weekend residence. 30 seconds to walk, I would run for hours to enjoy all these tastes and the very friendly service of a well engaged staff. The interior is a great result of historical awareness and modern architecture. With our friends we followed a four course meal and everyone at... More

Beautiful old building turned into a great restaurant, with a very nice interior that makes the atmosphere in the Salzhaus amazing. A great place to visit either for lunch, dinner or drinks, whether it is during the winter months or in the summer were you can enjoy views of the Aare while having a nice meal on their terrace.

I only go to this place if I have something to celebrate because it's an upper class place. The food is very good, the size is rather small, the price is rather high. It's an "in" place in Solothurn.
