“also known as m32; some good, some less good. great view; nice space”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

Of course the view is breathtaking, the high tech elevator very nice, the decor as well. Our lunch was pleasant and we enjoyed the game and goose tapas for a reasonable 16 euros for 2 people. The main dish of Atterrsee (a lake) pike perch with bacon and champagne sauerkraut was not well conceived and most of all the fish was not as fresh-tasting as it should have been. The other dishes looked nice. The cost is not high for the pleasure of being there.

“Not improving”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

We visited this restaurant several times in the last three years, and I had promised myself I would not return. Perhaps it is better in the evening but during the day, when of course people come to enjoy the view, the impression is that they really couldn't care less. Against my better judgement, we tried again this year.
Admittedly, they were quick to provide a blanket as it was a bit chilly but after that, the positives end. You will have to ask for a menu, assuming you can find a staff member, and then wait until they can be bothered to come back and take your order. Some of the junior staff make an effort but in general they seem miserable and disinterested. I've never bothered to explore the menu but what we have tried was really not worth putting up with dreadful service and rude staff.
This is all the more annoying because everywhere else in Salzburg, and in Vienna too, we have been used to friendly welcoming staff, excellent service, and really good food. This place is trading on its position, but not delivering. Other less pretentious places do so much better.

“So good we went back,”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Wonderful view, especially on our second visit when we watched a fireworks display at the fortress. Staff were so pleasant and helpful, and the food was worth going back for. They even produced items which we requested (by reputation) and were not on the menu. If there is a group of you ( and only if!) try the Salburger nocker for dessert!

“Great view and that's where it ends”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 via mobile

The view is why you put up with the sub par food and even worse service. After being seated we were ignored for 20 minutes and then had to get up and ask for a menu. Twenty minutes later we snagged a server to put in our order. Our drinks arrived shortly but the wrong food arrived, you guessed it, twenty minutes later. Our order arrived shortly thereafter, but both sandwiches were missing components, we think they just slapped them together since the first food brought was not ours.
We left most of our food on the plate again had to get up and ask for the bill, which was promptly delivered to the wrong table
We were not asked how our food or our experience was. We paid and left as quickly as we could.

“Spectacular view and food!”
Reviewed 5 September 2013 via mobile

Best view in Salzburg, located on top of Mönchsberg. There is a large terrace for outside drinks or dining, and they provide blankets too in case it gets fresh in the evening. The food is amazing - always exciting new combinations to try, eg. Eel with red beet risotto (excellent!!); dinner is not cheap, mains are about 20-35 euros, four course menus 60-80 euros; lunch/snacks are somewhat cheaper. It is definitely an experience and the staff is great! Highly recommended!!
