“Great inside and view but very slow and clumsy service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

The title sums it up: we were suggested to go to this place by a local colleague and we were actually a bit disappointed. At first the inside looked like a modern chalet, very nicely decorated and the menu sounded very promising. We ordered and had to wait 20 to 30min before we got the drinks. The waiteress basically gave our drinks to the clients next to us on the table and who came much later. We had to wait another 10 min until the drinks came. We had soup that was ok and really not worth the long waiting time. Dessert was delicious though. All and all too crowded and not enough waiters for the loads of people rushing in there on Lunch time!

“Great lunch on the mountain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

Had a great lunch at the Balmalp. Service was excellent, good menu with variety. Had a fillet salad, it was delicious, my wife had wok fried vegetables, also very good.

Well worth going to and a great view.

“Great view”

Food was good, the view was spectacular, and the restroom very clean. Place was very full, but the food came relatively quickly.

“Best lunch on the slopes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

A wonderful interior in modern alpine style, or the terrace with great views, friendly staff, rapid service and reasonable pricing (mains between 12 and 18€) make this my favorite stop for lunch in Lech.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

Great food and really nice wines. The view is spectaculair. A really good restaurant at the ski piste. With more than only frankfurter wurst or kaiserschmarren.
Not cheap, but is is worth the money.
