My boyfriend recommended this place after traveling to Salzburg, and he was dead on. The atmosphere is awesome. The food is delicious and unique, and it's usually hard to get both. Cocktails were awesome: the waitress turned me into a gin fizz fan. If you're in Salzburg, you should definitely go.

Fine dining finger food! Sounds like an oxymoron...but then again Carpe Diem is just that. A well laid out bar / restaurant, the ambience is fantastic, lots of bar stools and lots of cosy corners, yet in an environment which will make you feel like you are at a Michelin star restaurant. So what is the place about..? Super cocktail... More

Had lunch at their fine dining restaurant on top and food is excellent and wine selections are good too. One of our favorite places in Salzburg for a gourmet meal. Service is a bit unfriendly and uptight, hope they change this. Not too child friendly.

Once we planned to visit Salzburg, we have made a list of restaurants to be visited based on tourists reviews. Carpe Diem was among them. The menu is reach and we have decided to go for the predefined sets. I think it was a good decision because the perception was that each course was carefully selected as part of one... More

The restaurant is wonderful. The service and assortment impressive for this traditional city. Modern, sofisticated, clear and stylish. Two floors creating the atmosphere of spacious place which combines cosiness and fusion in one glass of wonderful austrian wine. The popularity of this place provided not only by location but also by its integration with street day and night life. Perfect... More

We had a really good experience at this restaurant which is located in the main pedestrian street of Salzburg, the Getreidegasse. It was a warm welcome on a rainy day in December. Level 1 is a bar with 'finger food' and the gourmet restaurant is upstairs where we ate. Every detail was perfect, from the table settings to the flower... More

We pulled this restaurant out of our Michelin guide, as we knew it was going to be difficult to find places to open over the Christmas holiday. We arrived late, because it turns out parking in Saltzburg in the area where this restaurant is located is incredibly difficult. Do not let their name food you. This is the kind of... More

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
