An wonderful evening!!

I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Excellent food (I had the Menu Esszimmer), the wine pairings were excellent. I thought the staff were excellent attentive but discrete. I'd go back if I ever went back to Salzburg!!

This place delivers what you can expect from a Michelin-starred restaurant: impeccable, creative cuisine, a well-selected wine pairing and attentive service. Fully recommended! Exceptional: when pointing out that the dessert was perhaps not fully up to the high standard of the other courses (and I was not complaining!), they took two glasses of champagne off the bill. What a generous... More

Only the fact that Michelin credited this restaurant with one Michelin star can tell you a lot about the values of Esszimmer Cuisine. Chef Andreas Kaiblinger put a lot of passion in his creative dishes. In a relative modern environment you can serve from very fine amuse-bouche to amazing desserts. Service is most of the time very good. A very... More

First Impressions This restaurant is located inside an unusual looking building on Muellner Hauptstr in Salzburg. The exterior does not do the interior of the restaurant any justice as once you enter the building interior is very tastefully decorated. The tables were covered with pressed white table cloths & crisp napkins and laid with shiny silver cutlery . The staff... More

We researched and pre-booked this restaurant for a special trip before we arrived in Salzburg. It did not disappoint. The food and the service was equally as good as each other. A very enjoyable evening and not pretentious at all. It had several tasting menus but you could pick a choose 3 courses from each menu if you preferred, which... More

My husband and I heard great reviews about this place and during our weekend visit to Salzburg, we decided to try this Michelin rated restaurant. The staff were very friendly and attentive, though the decor appeared a little outdated. My husband got the Menü Andreas Kaiblinger plus wine pairing, and I ordered the Menü Esszimmer. The presentation for both were... More

Wonderful meal with excellent service. Not cheap by worth the money although we might not take the wine pairings next time - perhaps a little bit too much alcohol since there was a different glass with each course although all of the pairings were delicious. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

From the outside, the restaurant does not look great. But the decoration inside is nice, and the food is excellent!
