“Great concept, friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

This was a real find. I am not sure if it is under new ownership because I thought they said they had only been open a week. The concept is great - an unlimited 'vegetable' buffet which in fact included a meat quiche and some lovely grilled fish among about 20 different offerings of grilled courgettes, fennel, spinach, cauliflower, broccoli etc. That is only 15 euros. You can also combine that with a primo or secondo. I had the osso buco with risotto and it was huge and very very tasty. Then there's a small selection of home made desserts. I can recommend the caramel panacotta. Friendly staff, English spoken fluently, and yummy carrot juice plus a bonus offering of some delicious vegetable pate!

“Good food, good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

We found it difficult to find good food in Salzburg. The Resturants that were full seemed to be the ones with traditional tourist oriented dishes. We did find one exception. The food was interesting and well prepared and served. The house wines were excellent. The owner and wait staff are Italian not Austrian which may account for the emphasis on the food.

“Tasty simple fresh food with good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

During what must have been one of the busiest weekends before Christmas we found a little haven of peace and calm in Refettorio. Situated in the New Town on the lovely Linzergasse we found this was just enough off the beaten track to be able to get a table on a Saturday night. Lovely starters from the buffet - great selection - all very fresh and tasty. Lovely main courses - mine was a beautiful risotto with prawns. We had no room for dessert - but can thoroughly recommend the Montepulciano we both drank! Great value for money - under 60euros for the 2 of us including wine and fresh mint tea to finish. Our waiter was charming and attentive but unobtrusive. One of the nicest experiences we had in Salzburg!

“Wonderful place for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

We lunched at this beautiful restaurant a couple of times. The buffet of fresh green, quiche, cheeses, bread, and dessert was just perfect with a nice glass of wine. Our server was attentive, pleasant and we felt no rush as we sipped our wine/beer and enjoyed the lovely atmosphere.

“Do not go here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

Sat at a table without a menu for 10 minutes, then were asked if we were ready to order! Finally got a menu, and some water and bread, but nothing to put on the bread. The menu was very limited. We decided to order pasta, which was undercooked, tasteless and not much for the price. There are plenty of other Italian restaurants nearby, try those instead.
