I first sat in Cafe Tirol as a 23-yr old 40 years ago in 1973, a small family run restaurant with a few bedrooms upstairs for rent - greeted by Ollie the owner. Mayrhofen itself was still a small hamlet with a working farm directly opposite the Cafe and cows roaming the village. I arrived on the steam train (then the main mode of transport whereas today just a tourist curiosity) to spend Christmas for a couple of days, fell in love with it and stayed 8 years. I returned 15 years later with my wife and our 2-year old daughter - staying at the Cafe and Ollie still there :-) - but the village greatly changed - wealthier, a new highway replacing the winding farm tracks that had passed for roads when I first arrived, and the pristine crispness and quiet of a winter night now gone and replaced with something else. All things change, but the charm of Cafe Tirol remains. Go there :-) Expore :-)

While walking up and the high street we noticed the bustle at this restaurant. Having checked the menu we chose to eat here.

The service was pleasant and friendly. The food was tasty and our wine was pleasant too.

The desserts are in a display chiller and worth a look. I had a tasty cheesecake.

Not really impressed with the food here. 5 in our party and only 1 was happy with what they got. It's main selling point was the free wi-fi.

We visited the Cafe Tirol twice during our visit to Mayrhofen. Wanted to try some local Austrian dishes, no trouble to the friendly staff, thankfully some could speak far better English than I could speak Germany. We did not have to wait too long to be served, despite it being very busy on the two occasions we visited. Had two wonderful meals and not too expensive

The Cafe Tyrol is without a doubt the best restaurant in Mayrhofen, fantastic food (thanks Alex) incredible service and great value for money. Don't leave without trying the carrot and ginger soup, or of course the steak! The pasta dishes are also fantastic (lobster, prawn and truffle sauce, yum)
