“Okay, but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

The food was fairly ordinary and overpriced for what it was. It tasted okay, and the service was fast and friendly, but it was nothing to write home about. We asked for a non-smoking table and were put in a room that was separated from the smoking area by an open bar. As a result the place smelt of smoke - a dislike of mine. Wouldn't go back, there are too many better options.

“Excellent restaurant in a skiing resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

It is not often to find a good food in places that are getting crowds of guests in any case as they have to offer something else than food. The typical example is Hinterglemm, Saalbach, Austria, one of the fanciest skiing resorts there. On our first two days there, we were really afraid that we will had no decent food to eat for the next nine days, as majority of retsaurants were serving almost inedible "food" that was also hugely overpriced. But on our third day we enetered into Knappenstube, pizzeria/restaurant. The food was really great, staff extremely friendly, pizzas also superb (for ones who consider them as real food), and prices very reasonable.
The Austrians have one thing that is maybe not known so much - together with Swiss they have the best fruit brandies in the world. Knappenstube has an excellent choice of them. Try any: grape, peer, quince, plum, aple etc.
Recommended if in Hinterglemm!
