After reading the reviews on trip advisor we decided to book our Valentines dinner here and were not disappointed. This is by far an experience, I had the vegetarian menu and my partner the original Esszimmer menu. Both were delicious. The service was impeccable.

This restaurant is well worth a visit if you enjoy a really good dining experience. The service is spot on, including the waiting time between courses (and we had many). The food is well thought through and executed, we really enjoyed the taster menu paired with the wines. It is nice to go to a restaurant where the next table... More

From start to finish our experience at Esszimer was wonderful. We were promptly and warmly greeted and ushered to our table, en route to our table there were smiles, waves and hellos from the kitchen. The restaurant is open and modern in decor with a lovely fireplace. We selected from the pre set menu options. My husband choosing the Menu... More

I loved this restaurant from the moment I walked in. It was open and modern compared to other restaurants we had eaten in during our Austrian trip. It was cold outside so a real fire was a lovely touch. We were a group of 8 and half our party were delayed, however, we were made to feel welcome and not... More

Fantastic meal, went straight into our all-time top ten best ever!! We had the tasting menu and I was able to swap in a dish from one of the other menus with no fuss whatsoever. Standout dish was the scallop with curry sauce but they were all great. Some combinations I had not had or thought of before but were... More

We had informed the restaurant in advance, and they had reserved a nice table for us and even added some extra decoration on to the table. The waiters were friendly, helpful and attentive... More
