And we were hungry. So, we ate there. We really only wanted a casual brew house experience. This was our most expensive meal on the trip. I ordered some beef dish that was fine. My husband ordered a salmon dish. As soon as he cut into it, I could tell it was raw. Not just slightly undercooked, but raw. My... More

During our weekend in Salzburg we visited several times. This is an upscale bar and restaurant, don't expect this to be cheap but service is great and choice of wines, beers, coffees etc is excellent. Great people watching as it seems the whole city passes through here at some point or another. We didn't try the cakes but there's always... More

Well, this restaurant was a flash of quality in this very overrated city, as both the food, the prices and the service were very good. We liked it most than anything else in Salzburg in fact.

I couldn't eat and it was late (23) the kitchen was almost closed but I could eat some finger food and I must admit that the wine also was very good. The ambiance was chic and calm and although I m not a smoker you can smoke here. I was at the second floor and no sign of smoke... the... More

Stunning but expensive. Have to stick to the gourmet dining upstairs as the finger food area downstairs is full of revolting cigarette smoke (unless you smoke I guess!) Very helpful and attentive waiter.

I was here late Tuesday night when all other cafes near by were already closed. Nice atmosphere to have a glass of wine, beer or other drink and chat with friends. What I don't like - that there is allowed to smoke inside. There is no matter if this place is separate for place where is not to allowed smoke... More

We had lunch at Carpe Diem before leaving Salzburg for Munich. It was very pleasant to sit outdoors in the Old Town and take in the passing strollers. Food was good but a bit overly designed: cheeseburger in a mini ice cream cone? Actually good, but a little silly.

Part of the Red Bull stable, Carpe Diem is a stylish haunt for Salzburg's in ground and for visitors. Open from breakfast until late every day, this is a bar, a cafe, a place to eat. If you just want to read the paper and have a coffee that's fine too. The unique element of the food is the fact... More
