“Excellent place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We stopped here twice during our visit to Lech for lunch and both times the service, food and atmosphere was excellent.

The menu is is a selection of Austrian classic and some grills - the Bison burger was excellent.

The location is just above Lech so non skiers can also reach the restaurant. There is an outside terrace and a great Stubli interior with a log fire - perfect plac to stop with kids during a snow storm!

Price was good with a selection of food for the kids - price range from 8eur to 24eur. We will certainly visit again when we return to Lech.

Small piece of advice - it's worth booking for lunch as it can get very busy between 12 and 1pm.

“You MUST eat here whilst in Lech skiing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

This was our absolute favourite place to eat in Lech .... Half way down a ski run, we nicknamed it "Love-heart Cafe" due to the massive heart statue out the front which you can see from the village of Lech looking up. The food here is superb - hearty, traditional but somehow still fine... Served in a cast iron pan or a glass jar... It's delicious and just enough out of the ordinary to be charming, fun but not pretentious. Even the bathrooms here are gorgeous .. Sit outside for an amazing day on a warm day or come early before 12:30 pm to grab a table inside by the fire. The wooden cottage is perfect - as is a cold Fahrenburger beer anytime of day. Our 3 kids also loved this place.

“Best of the mountain restaurants in Lech/Zurs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Have been coming to lech/Zurs for 3 yrs. have tried all the mountain restaurants. Located in a big old wooden chalet just above Lech on the slopes with a big Flower Heart outside (so you can spot it as you ski down). This is the best mountain restaurant in the area for food and atmosphere. nice upmarket feel. Good choice of food. lovely terrace to sit out in when the sun is shining and roaring fire inside when it isn't. Very good.

“A nice restaurant on the slopes of Lech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Ruud Alp is crowded during the day, but offers a good selection of food for the hungry skiers. The staff is nice and organzed. Especially on sunny days it's "mandatory" to enjoy the lunch on the large terrace and the great view.

“Best on piste food in Lech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

Chicken salad of beef cube soup are the best things on the menu. Both tasy and not overly filling that you can't ski for the rest of the day. Service is usually very quick and prices for Lech are reasonable.
