Small restaurant managed by Indian. The tables are very small and you are going to be seated very close to others guests. No privacy at all. Prices are reasonable and foods are taste.

Yes, we where looking for a schnitzel. There are rather many restaurants to choose from in Salzburg Old Town. We took a chance to visit Saran Essbar. We were six persons and they arranged two tables at last (had to be in a specific way...More

I didn't read any of the TA reviews in advance and took Rick Steves’ advice. My wife and I had a nice meal here sitting on the pedestrian street/sidewalk in front of Saran Essbar. The restaurant was very busy, always a good sign, and we...More

I had the Bengals fish pot and found it extraordinary. Very complex in flavors, with a little spice. The fish was fresh and flaky, the rice was awesome.

The simple vegetarian meal was overpriced , undercooked and the attitude of the server and the service was abysmally poor - when told about the undercooked potatoes , not a word of apology - seems par for the course for this eatery.

We had the schnitzel that came with generous number of potatoes, half a lettuce leaf and teaspoon of sweet berry sauce. It was on special offer of 9.5 euros which is what attracted our attention. The waiter suggested salad to go with it which is...More

We came across this place walking back to our hotel from the fortress. Food was okay, but the service was great. Price average for Salzburg restaurants.

For the original schnitzel it cost 18.90 Euro and was far too salty...as if it was coated with salt! Way overpriced for what it was. It costs 2.90 Euro for a small water. House wine is poured at very small quantity and was not to...More

I personally think this restaurant is hugely over rated. We went on recommendation from Rick Steve's book and we have one vegan family member so it's hard to find restaurants that we all will like. I will say that the service was fast and friendly...More

Eine warme und mannigfaltige Atmosphäre.
Könnte man in Worten beschreiben, was es heißt, Atmosphäre zu fühlen? Was ist die Ursache dieses Wohlgefühls, das wie selbstverständlich aus dem alles verbindenden Flair eines kleinen aber einmaligen Erlebnisses emporsteigt?
Die SARAN ESSBAR liefert darauf die einfachsten und zugleich facettenreichsten Antworten, ohne auch nur ein hör- oder lesbares Wort darüber zu verlieren, denn es ist ausschließlich die warme, elementare Sprache der Sinnlichkeit, der Gastfreundschaft und des Genusses, die in der SARAN ESSBAR ihre Heimat gefunden hat und durch ein bloßes Erleben voll und ganz begriffen wird.
Eingebettet in das so malerische Bild der Judengasse, im Kern der Salzburger Altstadt, und aufwartend mit einer bewusst klein gehaltenen, aber vorzüglichen Auswahl an exzellent zubereiteten landestypischen wie internationalen Speisen, bietet das sympathische Lokal die Bedingungen, die es braucht, um das Konzentrat eines fünfsinnigen Moments in eine atmosphärische Empfindungswolke zu zerstäuben, die alsdann, leicht und voll zugleich, wie eine laue Briese übers verwandelte Gemüt streicht.
