Adventure #179: M32 (Salzburg)

Today, we made our way back to M32.  M32 stands for the address - Mönchsberg 32. As the restaurant is on top of the Modern Art Museum, it supposedly has panoramic views of the city from north of the River Salzach to the Hohensalzburg Fortress and the mountains behind them.  To get to the restaurant we had to buy a one-way ticket up and after the meal, they will give patrons free tickets to get back down.

It had been pouring all day, so we didn't expect to see anything up there. We just wanted to sit down and have a nice warm meal. And we were not disappointed.

Lift ticket with the restaurant's signature decor of deer horns.

As mentioned, the weather was not good and hence we weren't able to enjoy the views from the restaurant.  On a good day, this is what you will see from the restaurant's outdoor terrace:

But today, we had to be contented with the inside of the restaurant:


M32 specialises in fine dining serving Austrian and Mediterranean cuisine.  The service was great, waiters very attentive (what a surprise!).  They also had a kids menu so the little one can have her chicken nuggets and fries while we have some proper food.

The older one had roast lamb with polenta.  She loved it.

G had pan fried salmon on a bed of mushrooms.  The fish fresh, the skin crispy and the fish cooked just right.

I had sole with risotto.  It was good but a bit rich for me and I liked G's salmon better.

It was a fine dinner we had.  This restaurant is definitely a must when the weather is good.  There is a bar and an outdoor terrace, so if not for dinner, definitely for drinks.
