“A great à la Carte Restaurant directly at River Aare”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

The Salzhaus Restaurant is one of my favorite Restaurants in Solothurn.
They offer great à la Carte Food in an even better atmosphere! In Summer time you have also the great opportunity to sit outside directly at River Aare.
The Prices are on a high Standard but together with the great Service and friendly staff, the Restaurant is a Must-Have for Solothurn's Old City.

“Everything was perfect - the location, the food and the service”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Due to the fine weather, we booked a table on the terrace looking out over the river Aar. Our German being very limited, the very friendly waitress made great efforts to speak in French - she was most helpful with the choice of wines and very attentive during the whole of the dinner. There was a set menu with 4 dishes but we just took 3 for the very reasonable price of CHF61. The food was excellent - we could find nothing to criticize

“Bof ...”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

The Salzhaus is pretending being one of the "gastronomic" restaurants in the gorgeous town of Solothurn.

Unfortunately, there is a gap between pretention, setting and reality; while the place is rather nice (except if you are sitting in the rear lower part which is a little bit like a dungeon), the food is not really extraordinary and the service a little bit amateurish. The "amuse bouche" (note to the waiters: this is not called "es amüüüs", but "amuse bouche", two French words which have a signification in their original language) was insignificant, the starter (pea soup with Colonnata lard in my case) were not bad, but the main dish (stuffed zucchini blossom) was overcooked and tasteless …

The visit there was a real deception, and I do not think that I'll return except for a glass of wine on the terrace …

“Very nice food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Great stuff, very friendly charming waitors, excellent food, but a little expensive. The Ice Coffee is a must-have, as well as grilled shrimps (Crevettenspiess). Gerne wieder einmal!
