Great service, nice ambiance, good food but nothing to write home about.

Driving through Salzburg, we stopped by the Esszimmer, way under dressed but they were kind enough to take us in. The restaurant is very well appointed and very comfortable with very open feeling between tables. The service is excellent. As we were short on time, we opted to select some... read more

With this price could have easily gone for a Michelin star restaurant and get way better food and service. But I guess this is one of the best ones in Salzburg.

As we continue to make our way to Vienna our last night in Salzburg was special because we ate at Restaurant Esszimmer. The service was excellent and the best during our stay here. Appetizers were delicious and included zucchini noodles on polenta , assortment of liver pates,& celery soup with potato gratin. Every fish entree was mouth watering. Highly recommended

We went there for my husband's birthday - I had asked for a quiet table for this special occasion. We were warmly greeted at arrival and shown to a lovely table on the terrace, which had been decorated especially. We went for the fish menu and house menu respectively - both really tasty. Excellent wine list - we picked a... More

My wife and I went straight for Menu Andreas Kaiblinger, 7-course lunch. Magnificent flavors and gorgeous plating. Turbot and seabass were very, very nice. Curry sorbet was something special; spicy yet refreshing. My kids had tomato pasta. It had a light and tangy tomato sauce, which worked pretty well for them. We were the only ones in the restaurant this... More

We had read many reviews about Esszimmer and so put it at the top of our restaurant list for Salzburg. Decor is very nicely done modern and our table was next to a unique view (through glass) of an underground river! At first the menu was a bit of a "shock" - no beef or chicken, but the waitress was... More

I really liked it. I had the fish menu. It was outstanding. Each meal was paired with different wines. The cod Fish was excellent. The desserts were outstanding. Service was superb. I will be back.

I booked a table here for four of us to celebrate my partner's 30th birthday. We wanted a dining experience with a bit of flair and we certainly got that. From the moment we walked through the door we were warmly welcomed and treated like royalty. Our waitresses were extremely knowledgable and attentive but not over the top. The atmosphere... More
