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.

My husband and I by coincidence found this restaurant as it was the only open place today directly at the water front. The outside sitting area, inlcuding ist view, as well as the interior of the Restaurant (including ambience) are very nice. However, we didn't regret our choice at all (well, maybe just a Little bit when we saw the... More

We had a very fine dinner here, the ambiance was great and so was the food. I would have given the place 5 stars, except for the very slow service. Our waitress was pleasant and attractive, but she ignored us for extended periods of time. We sat for half an hour from the time we finished our entre until she... More

We liked the Salzhaus - it has a great location along the river & great interior deco. The food is superb & the menu changes every season, if i'm not mistaken. So there's always something new to try. However, it is pricey but worth a special occassion :)

Service is quite good although our waiter spilled our wine on the table , and failed to bring bread to the table , other than that service was fine. My wife ordered the Lunch Box which... More

We are relatively new to Solothurn and wanted to try a nice place. I had heard good things about it and we decided to give it a try. We had a Smartbox voucher, which I had informed the restaurant upon booking our table. I am a quite picky eater, and due to this voucher we had a 3 course meal... More

We visited the Salzhaus which is based directly at the river Aare in an old, refurbished slaughter house. As part of a small group and for a quick business lunch, we realized that they offered from a wide variety of meals surrounded by a great choice of superb wines. The service was great and very helpful. The lunch came quick... More

The Salzhaus Restaurant is one of my favorite Restaurants in Solothurn. They offer great à la Carte Food in an even better atmosphere! In Summer time you have also the great opportunity to sit outside directly at River Aare. The Prices are on a high Standard but together with the great Service and friendly staff, the Restaurant is a Must-Have... More
