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

Due to the fine weather, we booked a table on the terrace looking out over the river Aar. Our German being very limited, the very friendly waitress made great efforts to speak in French - she was most helpful with the choice of wines and very attentive during the whole of the dinner. There was a set menu with 4... More

The Salzhaus is pretending being one of the "gastronomic" restaurants in the gorgeous town of Solothurn. Unfortunately, there is a gap between pretention, setting and reality; while the place is rather nice (except if you are sitting in the rear lower part which is a little bit like a dungeon), the food is not really extraordinary and the service a...

Great stuff, very friendly charming waitors, excellent food, but a little expensive. The Ice Coffee is a must-have, as well as grilled shrimps (Crevettenspiess). Gerne wieder einmal!

Went to this restaurant with a large group of colleagues and had a set course. Enjoyed the experience: food was good and service was fast. Enjoyable place to sit outside on the terrace and experience sunset In the old city center of Solothurn.

While on a business trip in Solothurn for four weeks, we probably went to Salzhaus twice a week and were never disappointed. The staff is extremely friendly, and their specials are awesome. We did not have one meal that anyone had complaints about.

We spent six weeks in Solothurn and returned to the Salzaus for lunch often. It is right on the river Aare and eating outside is a delight. The food was always delicious, well presented and varied. We usually enjoyed the local fish in some way. There was always at least one server who spoke English and was willing to help... More
