One of the few stylish places in Salzburg to enjoy a glass of wine and some "small bites". Not a place for a big dinner. Food and service were very good.

It looks like I'm the outlier here. Carpe is a very nice setting where one can enjoy food and drink in a trendy atmosphere, but I don't think they fully deliver. Salzburg is an expensive city in general, but they take it to the next level with extremely small pours. The 'small plates' were very good, but, again, so small... More

A great place with a romantic atmosphere. Fairly expensive! The waitress was not too willing to explain me which plate was local. At the end we asked for the bill and she completely forgot about us. We asked again another waiter and we were waiting for half an hour... disappointed...

Let's not deny the obvious: this is not a cheap place to eat. But is it overpriced? No, not at all. Beautifully presented, delicious food combining flavours and textures in new ways; this is art, not fuel. Dismiss that as pretentious if you will, but I was happy to pay nearly €250 for two here, while I was extremely unhappy... More

This west end side of the old town restaurant bar is very unique as it is very upscale with indoor/outdoor seating & specializes in reasonable finger foods & a good wine selection by the glass. Courteous wait staff & simply unique due to its cuisine & ambiance. 3 people with multiple glasses of wine & great selection of finger food... More

The restaurant on the 1st floor has a modern and warm atmosphere, the personnel is very kind. Very nice choice of wines, excellent food menu. Menu is quite pricy but the quality of the food is excellent. Place to go to!

Visited Salzburg, from Vienna, on a rainy Friday 20th June. Ordered coffee, tea and Apfelstrudel Service was impeccable and a delight to sit on the rattan cushioned chairs whilst watching the many tourists walking in crocodiles along the busy Getriedsgasse.

We enjoyed several small plates in the terrace. The beef tartar with mashed potatoes and cress in a Sancho pepper cone was delicious. This is definitely a foodie restaurant. The chef has used his artistry to create small plates and cone dishes that are appealing to the eye and taste. Everything was prepared and served with an eye for detail.... More

A hip and chic spot to hang out for drinks and socializing (if you are in the mood) or just being cozy with your friends / loved ones...Great drinks menu (a few good dessert choices). Great patio/outdoor lounges and up-scale looking bars/ambience.
