Entered the restaurant on an early hour, so not much crowd. Food was good , and Vienna's master dish - the schnitzel was very good and left us with a taste for more. However, there are probably cheaper places to eat and not less tasty....More

I had an excellent dinner at Salzamt. Better to reserve in advance, especially around Christmas time. Food is really authentic and high quality. I think it's difficult to find in Vienna a good typical Austrian restaurant that is not touristy. And this is one!! Dishes...More

After a long day of walking we found this "hidden" restaurant in the 1st district. A little bit old school, but with very friendly staff and tasty food. I can highly recommend the pumpkin soup and wienerschnitzel!

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.
