Description: You can find the Salzamt in the heart of the ,Bermuda Triangle'. It has been said that the Salzamt was the starting point of the Viennese Nightlife area (Bermuda Dreieck). The architect Herman Czech created this elegant and functional but playful space in 1983. White table cloths stretch throughout the dining area surrounded by wooden benches and Art - Deco chandeliers. The bar tempts with dimed lights and leather sofas to lounge in, creating a feeling of timelessness. On the daily handwritten menu one can find bistrot classics such as Vitello Tonnato or Beef Tatare but Viennese specialities like veal ,Wiener Schnitzel', Tafelspitz, diverse Gulash's as well international and eastern European dishes. There is a wide variety of Austrian and international wines with focus on the Bründlmayer in Kamptal. The beer selection features Viennese pils, Czech beer and white beer. Further fruit juices, fine spirits and local schnaps are on the drinks menu. In summer you can enjoy the outside seating on the calm and charming Ruprechtsplatz next to the oldest church in Vienna overlooking the Danube canal. Until 1824 the Salzamt was located here. The salt office was the salt taxing authority of the Habsburg monarchy. Today Salzamt is known as a meeting point for the arts and media scene and other luminaries, who enjoy this unpretentious place. If you want to dine and drink in a cozy atmosphere the Salzamt will take care of you.

“A nice surprise. ”
Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

Very tasty dishes, quick service. The best Topfenstrudel in my live!!! It was exellent! A litle bit difficult to find the restaurant, and the interior design isn't great, but it was a good dinner. I advice it to everyone.

“Traditional austrian food, well made”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

You have to look for this restaurant, as it is hidden away from the main streets. We dined there and had a excellent meal with Austrian wine at a very moderate pice.
We can recommend this place and will certainly return some day.

“Excellent food, unique atmosphere”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

If you're looking for excellent food served in a unique atmosphere in Vienna "Salzamt" is the place to go. It was recommended to us by some friends. We were very satisfied with the quality of the meal and the authentic Viennese atmosphere. Highly recommended to anyone looking for the "real deal" in Vienna!

“OK but slightly over-rated”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

Very kind, very polite, very slow and disorganised staff. Perfectly OK food at very sensible prices in a nice traditional setting, just as many other Viennese restaurants. Well worth visiting once; hardly worth a second visit.

“Wonderful evening”
Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

Went with a group after a meeting in Vienna. We all had a great time, delicious Austrian food & friendly staff. The place was packed on a Tuesday so reservations are good idea.
