The service that evening was lovely and quite entertaining and witty, and the food was very good. The interior design really wasn't our style (the colors look a bit 90s/2000s) but since we sat in a corner it was quiet and comfortable. The wine accompaniment was good (though nothing special), and we loved the menu choices! However, keep in mind... More

Was treated to a fabulous lunch as part of a planned tour. The food was a work of art in both taste and presentation. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We had an amazing dinner at Restaurant Esszimmer! The staff is extremely friendly, we were welcomed with big smiles and a glass of champagne. They were willing to make substitutions to make everyone as happy as possible. The tasting menus are exquisite, wines wonderful. Give yourself plant of time to enjoy this special experience.

My wife and I walked from our hotel across the Danube to the restaurant, which we highly recommend, as it is a romantic stroll. When we arrived, Esszimmer was tucked away in a small street intersection. The staff was warm and attentive. We sat inside, and it was not crowded. We enjoyed a 7-course meal with wine pairings. Our total... More

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.

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

Description
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.”
