    Travel back in time with Mozart’s music. This evening was filled with a wonderful made traditional Austrian meal set in an acoustic dream room complete with period architecture and costumes. The musicians were of a high caliber and seemed to enjoy the evening as much as the audience. The wait staff went above and beyond to make sure it was as natural an experience as possible during this pandemic. Richardo and his wait staff colleagues were relentless (yet unobtrusive) to attend to everyone’s needs. I loved my wine suggestion and at the end of the evening, my sleeping three year old was carried down the stairs to the taxi that was called for us. It was a perfect evening complete with candelabra! It is a must do splurge in Salzburg.
