Across from the Hotel Blau Gans. Great food and non smoking is upstairs. The appetizers where very nicely presented and tasty.

This is a super-chic place with a wonderful menu. We went to the upper floor restaurant and had a both the "cone" food and some "normal" main course. Everything was extremely well prepared. The "cones" were just incredible. The only thing I can say is that a place like this deserves nice tablecloths. Try it if you can afford it!

We dropped into this trendy, lively restaurant for lunch. Their menu, which is available in English by the way, features "finger foods". It wasn't exactly cheap but all the food was unique and fun. My husband, since we are American, was dying for a hamburger and they did list a hamburger with cheese and bacon on menu, complete with French... More

Four courses, each exquisitely small, together with a couple of glasses of beer, made for a fabulous light luncheon after a morning in Salzburg. Under £30 per head, and worth nearer £50!

Great restaurant at Getriedegasse, the main street at Salzburg. Excellent finger food, with small amounts and delicious portions. The service is a little slow and you have to be patient. Besides that, everything is perfect. They have inside tables with an excellent atmosphere and also several couches outside where you can seat, relax, have a cappuccino or some tapas, while... More

A refreshing change from the "typical Austrian food" that tourists are generally recommended when they seek advice about dining options in Salzburg. Dined at their gourmet restaurant on Friday Sep 20. Reason for stating date is that their menu is changed periodically (weekly or fortnightly?) Ordered the following: - soup of crayfish with sweet corn - starter of scallop ,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed dinner at Carpe Diem - finest fingerfood - we had booked many weeks in advance upon a friend's recommendation and were not disppointed. The night did not start well, as when we arrived promptly for our table we were told that due to a major concert event they were full, and we would have to wait perhaps... More

Food was good. One of the lady staff was so arrogant that she blatantly insinuated we could not afford the prices despite us reiterating that it was not our first visit. She insisted, persistently, to study the menu first ,therefore I suppose, the cost, and then,“Do you want to dine here?“ We had promised our guest a dining experience so... More

We have enjoyed eating and drinking in the downstairs bar at Carpe Diem, but had not realised that there was a gourmet restaurant upstairs until recently. On our recent visit we sampled the tasting menu, which was superb. Wonderful flavours, unobtrusive service and a lovely ambience. It is not cheap, but represents good value for a special occasion.
