We actually dined at the best restaurant in Salzburg the night before (Ikarus) and so Esszimmer did suffer in comparison. Yes, you will find a decent meal here. The service was fine - no complaints. We dined on the patio (a warm evening) and yes, that was fine as well. It just didn't feel special and I guess that is... More

Many reviewed that the place is expensive , we also thought the same but as we all know good things in life comes with a price :) the quality of foods and service they offer at Esszimmer is unique and worth the money . Will come back here next month .

It was so exensive for this food. Certainly small meal on plate and not tasteful. The gooseliver with sweet poppyseeds was terrible. I've never ate fish without any taste. The service was good but me and my girlfriend feel ourselves unconfortably when every single second asked me something.

I had been somewhat skeptical of Esszimmer's lofty prix fixe menus, but was delighted to find that the high praise on Chowhound and Tripadvisor were well deserved.My daughter and I each had the six course Esszimmer menu while my wife had only a couple of courses, but grazed on ours. I was impressed that Esszimmer accomodated her lesser appetite gracefully,... More

We chose this restaurant after reading other reviews and were not disappointed. The service, quality of the food and wines were exceptional. My husband and I were celebrating a special occasion and the staff went out of their way to make our evening extra special. Not to be missed on your visit to Salzburg!

Wonderful from start to finish. Front of house staff were friendly and attentive without being over the top. They even indulged me in my poor German! We had the menu Esszimmer with wine and we're not disappointed. One of the best pieces of beef (if not the best) I have ever eaten. Wine choices were well thought out and courses... More

Very happy I chose TA's number one choice for Salzburg. thanks, fellow reviewers. It is a very attractive place and boasts a staff that is very friendly and efficient. The menus are mostly around 85 euros and the quality is there. The amuse-bouches were especially succulent, idem the bread selection. All dishes were successful, one was quite daring: a raviolo...

The first thing you will see when entering the restaurant is the kitchen and you will be welcome by the chef in person. Really well done! We could choose between 4 different menus, a vegi ("green" menu), a meat, a fish (all 5 courses menus), and the gastronomic menu with 7-8 courses. With every menu and each course within each... More
