Loved our experience at Esszimmer. In this period of the period with the Christmas markets, the cold, the festivities, this restaurant was just like the cherry on the cake! A fireplace welcomed us as we entered the "eating room". We took the chef's menu, took out 2 dishes though as otherwise it would have been way too much. The set... More

I must say that I was torn between a four and a five star rating for this restaurant. I really loved the service and the atmosphere, but the food was just slightly above four stars for me. Certain courses were outstanding such as the oxtail crepes and other things were definitely above average, but not quite at five stars. Overall,... More

I was left with an hour to spare whilst waiting for the others in the group and decided to give myself a treat. Treat it was indeed. Food was delicious.

My sister and I made a reservation for lunch here after reading the reviews. From the entry we were treated like a royalty. They help us from ours coats and we were seated by the window. They have cute little stools were you can put your purse so it is not hanging on the chair or sitting on the floor.... More

The Restaurant is great for a special occasion or for a luxury dinning. The menu is very creative, very good in a very nice presentation. The service is perfect, this is a real treat for fine dining lovers.

We were in Salzburg for a part of our Honeymoon and because of TripAdvisor picked Esszimmer as our first dinner. Talk about white glove service! We did the Esszimmer tasting menu but changed two dishes and we added the wine tasting. In short, INCREDIBLE! We had an amazing meal and the service was top notch! We had reservations for 7pm...

Celebrated my sister's birthday here. We made a prior reservation to secure a table. There were 4 menus to choose from and you can swap one dish from the menu with another dish from a different menu. Service was friendly and efficient and the food was really really good. The menu was thoughtful and exquisite. A welcome change from the... More

Havibg pre booked, we were welcomed by name. Wonderful food and a warmth of service that made us feel like old friends. Food was amazing and wine accompaniment was perfect and surprising not being an Austrian wine drinker Highly recommend.

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

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.”
