Avant garde place

Creative presentation and avant garde preparation. Each item isn't very big, but it gives you the chance to try a larger variety. Most of the items were tasty, a few were unusual and I didn't quite know how to place it. It's a little on the pricey side but worth a try if you want something out... read more

We both ordered the lunch set which was 20euro for 3 courses, of course was a good price for a Michelin starred restaurant but was just usual price for most restaurants in the area. The started (Buffalo mozzarella with tomato) & the main (thin slice of beef steak with small potatoes & green beans) taste alright but were not delicate... More

Everyone who is in Salzburg and who is a foodie should eat at Carpe Diem. The food is both original and excellent. We chose the 7 dish menu and all courses were none less than superb. Small "flavour bombs" mostly served in cones.

We did try the famous finger food – delicious – steak tartare in a cone. We had the tasting menu with wine pairings. Service is attentive and friendly. Only disappointment is that the black cod lacked flavour but overall the food, presentation, setting and location can’t be beat

Nothing wrong with the food except for the tiny proportions but the staff were arrogant and rude. Initially I sat a couple of tables away from the open windows as there were people smoking outside. I then noticed someone leaving who had been smoking inside the restaurant a couple of tables away, so I asked for a non-smoking table. I... More

We had 4 courses finger food for 28 Euro. My friend had to find bath room after we left there. I had a sick stomach overnight. It's good for local people to drink there. The window seemed leaking. You can smell the smoke from outside smoking people.

One of the smallest portions of food I have ever tasted in my life, however the deserts are to die for and so are the cocktails. The bartenders on ground floor were very unfriendly and rude, however the bar tenders upstairs were super friendly

Cappuccino was the best. About 8 oz and perfect. The heart pattern remained in the foam until the end of the cup. Best cappuccinos I've had. They were consistent day to day. The food was tasty - the waffle dish was excellent as was the egg and ham dish. Service was good.

Everybody knows that carpe diem has 1 michelin star. I tought I could taste that when I went to the restaurant for a lunch there in April.
