Dinner was good but not memorable. Delicious soup! Good service, and reserving a window seat was worth it. Pay the premium if you can for the wine, dinner , etc. it was worth it. The concert was amazing—something we will always remember! The venue is WARM—dress accordingly. Seeing these excellent musicians perform up close was a thrill. This ranks as a highlight of our 15-day trip.

Spectacular musicians and beautiful venue! Initially thought it would be a bit “tacky touristy” and maybe it is touristy but where else to enjoy classical music than Salzburg. 2 hours flew by and I am so glad i went.

Dinner was outside given the great weather and the view was fantastic! Service was okay but staff was quite busy. The room for the concert was up several flights of stairs but was an amazing performance!

Food excellent, music wonderful. Shame about the waiters for dinner. If I was in Egyot or Tunisia, I would expect a couldn't care less attitude to service. Austrians are much better at customer service.

Beautiful venue. Excellent music. Was nice to do without a dinner attached.
