Excellent Ambiance with great lounge music.. very fast and efficient service and tasty food.. I would have rated this place a 5 star had their portions been bigger.. for the price you pay the food is extremely small portioned; but that is "The Only" negative point about this wonderful place.

We had dinner here a couple of weeks ago and I'd say we left a little disappointed, especially for the price. I honestly cannot even remember everything we had, but it was a few appetizers, a lamb dish, duck dish and steak that I can recall. The steak with foie gras was pretty good and one of our appetizers was... More

Not your state fair finger food although it could be featured on "Prairie Home Companion." Upscale outdoor deck in heart of Salzburg's 'gold street.' Sip champagne and eat a tiny burger on top of creamed corn, served in a waffle cone! The best! The restaurant is featured in Alexi Venice's novel "Ebola Vaccine Wars."

I first went to Carpe Diem on an afternoon thinking was a little place just for some desserts or snacks. I was terribly wrong. The place is amazing, the food is great. No big portions so you can taste a lot of different things. I didn't order one thing that I didn't like. I end up going back during my... More

One of my favorite things to do it eat with my hands. I like it when I can feel what I'm eating between my fingers. Carpe Diem is what you would imagine a high-class, luxury restaurant for barbarians would look like, if the barbarians were rich and dressed in Dolce & Gabbana and carrying Coach bags. (Not really. But still.)... More

An excellent Resturant the seating, ambiance and service were very good we enjoyed the entire evening. The food presentation is excellent the plates look as if it were paintings the only comment on the steak that it arrived not as hot as you would expect a steak to be.

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.

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
