“Creative menu, nice chef but strained atmosphere”

Berchtesgadener Esszimmer
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: USD 25 - USD 56
Cuisines: International
Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 June 2018

Overall we had a pleasant dining-experince away from the typical Bavarian fare. Also I would agree that this restaurant deserves some honorable mention in the Guide Michelin but there is still some room towards a first Michelin star IMO. Prices are on the expensive side for Berchtesgaden but still ok compared to similar restaurants in Salzburg. Since there was only one other table occupied during our mid-week visit the atmosphere was a little bit strained. Also the young lady in the service could have been more relaxed. I assume that this is different on weekends.

This is the second time for us to visit the Esszimmer, and again delighted with the food. Good quality, well prepared, well thought out menus and friendly service. A great alternative to traditional Bavarian food in other in most other restaurants in Berchtesgaden. But reserve - it fills up fast!

Only reason i discovered this "Secret" was due to the fact that i arrived 30m late to my date with Cxxxxxxxx.
She had her pick of restaurants.....and she chose Esszimmer.
We were seated directly in front of the kitchen..no magic here...you watch Maximilian (the chef) conjure your meal in front of your eyes....
Have to warn you..it distracts from your date:-)
Dinner was exquisite..the dessert a dream....
Das Resümee: Sometimes a mistake can end in heaven ;-)

This restaurant served us on the fly at 8pm on a Saturday when they had no real seating left. They were very gracious and the chef was fantastic. With a staff of three they served at least 20+ people in a timely manner. They were an impressive team to watch!

Definitely an up and coming top tier restaurant, all of their tasting menus are worth a go. Some courses my challenge your palate and the status quo, but truly original, intriguing, and tasty.

We found this hidden gem while exploring the back roads of Berchtesgaden. Our hostess, Julia, was charming and the place was friendly, cozy and romantic. The food was delicious! We hope to return some day.
