During our stay in Salzburg we celebrated my entrance to a new decade. We decided to do it at Restaurant Esszimmer. This was a very good choice. 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

We visited Esszimmer during the 'Eeat and Meet' culinary festival in March '14. Students were offered a four course meal (including wine, beverage and coffee) for 29€. Several months have passed and I still regard this lunch the best culinary experience I've had yet. Mind you, we did eat at several comparably highly decorated restaurants since then. The service was... More

The food is in my view 1 michelin star standard and we had the lamb which was perfect. Traditional Austrian with a modern twist. I would certainly go back - the wine was fantastic and the maitre de gave... More

I ate at Esszimmer last evening with Austrian friends, who had recommended it as their favourite restaurant in Salzburg. I was so pleased that they did. The meal was superb. There are three set menus - vegetarian, fish and a mostly meat option. Each course can be accompanied by wines especially chosen to complement the food and we chose to... More

We chose this restaurant after reading other reviews and definitely made the right choice. The service, quality of the food and wines were exceptional. My husband and I were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and staff went out of their way to make our evening extra special. Highly recommended.

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.
