The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't be fooled by that. They offer 4 different tasting menu options. Between the 4 of use, we tried 3 of the tasting menu options (2 of us ordered the same one). Each was delicious. The presentation was spot on, and what you would expect from a Michelin restaurant. The... More

We had the fish menu. Started with scallops, followed by Donau salmon and smoked halibut. SMOKED halibut. Yes. It's the only way to have this otherwise boring fish that just grows and grows in your mouth. What a paradigm shift. Even the catfish was good, although the skin was a tad too salty for my taste. Finished with chocolate cardamom... More

We arrived at the restaurant ready for another outstanding meal in Salzburg. The decor is very nice and we had a lovely table outside. The hostess was fantastic and provided excellent service! The menu is wonderful, but from the moment we sat down our waitress seemed distant. We did not know if she was upset that I didn't order a... More

Had the Menu Kaiblinger which was wonderful and completely worth it! The service was professional and polite, the tables were very well spaced apart and no one was crowded in. Would highly recommend an evening here when visiting Salzburg!

We arrived for dinner on Saturday and from the moment we were greeted at the door we knew we were somewhere special. The ladies who looked after us provided a very high level of service. The small tastings that were provided throughout our meal were delicious, as was the dinner which was artistically prepared and served. The quality and service... More

Celebrated a special occasion here while in Salzburg. The staff was very professional and the menu was excellent. We had the smaller tasting menu, which was plenty of food, but not so much that we felt overstuffed. The interior decor is very modern, with lots of artworks. The waterfall at one edge was a nice attraction. The food was superb,... More

Had a beautiful meal here on my first night in Salzburg, and it was a wonderful experience. Attentive and friendly staff, lovely atmosphere in the dining room, and the food was exquisite. Everything had the most amazing flavors, and the dishes were creative and inspired, not to mention beautifully presented. I think my favorite was probably the sea bass; every... More

We chose Esszimmer as the spot to celebrate my birthday. We were not disappointed. The star of the food for us was the goose liver course which started the menu we chose. You can choose as many courses as you wish and mix and match from the various menu offerings. We decided to have the wine pairing and were not... More

When the front desk manager of our hotel learned that our taxis should get us to the Esszimmer, he told us: "Ohhh congratulations on this choice!" In the end, this sentence bears everything there is to say about the Esszimmer: A place where you can order blindly from the menu and get surprised and provoked at every step along the... More

The restaurant is called quite simply “esszimmer” (“dining room”). Anything more would be superfluous, says star chef Andreas Kaiblinger. After all, the “real adventure happens in the cooking pot.”
