“Lovely mountain hut”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Saalbach/Hinterglemm has great mountain huts and the Rosswaldhutte is one of the best. On a sunny day it is bliss to take off the skis, grab a table, go to the very well organised and friendly self service, and sit an have lunch in the sun. Food is surprisingly good, with the local speciality karspressknoedel being excellent.

“Fantastic Lunch Spot”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

The best place we found to eat on the mountain. Excellent local specialties.

Try spinach dumplings and the chopped pancakes with plum compote as desert.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

I guess what others say is true, i.e. that this is a popular place, but we didn't know that when we (6 of us) skied to it around 1pm. The place was heaving, partly because it was snowing so the extensive outside terrace wasn't really usable.
We couldn't find a table for all of us but a waitress said she would within 5 minutes, and did. To be fair, that was fairly common in mountain restaurants in this area, though I'm not sure any of them were quite as busy as this one. Taking the orders was pretty rapid (electronically so straight to the kitchen I guess) and drinks came out fairly quickly, followed by the food within 10 minutes - pretty much all at the same time despite quite a varied list.
We thought the food was very good and the prices very reasonable, especially for waitress service. Adding desserts and coffees was almost as quick as getting drinks, but we didn't feel pressurised at all.
Again a fairly common feature was their ability to rapidly split the bill up between us and spot if anything had been missed (computers again of course). Most French mountain restaurants could take lessons from places like this.

“Great food and fast service”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

We loved this hutte and returned to it a number of times for refreshments. One of the old style huttes with plenty of character. Great menu. Recommended.

“Good place for lunch in the sun”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Is very popular so the service restaurant is often full. The self service is great for the sun terrace and is the best organised in the resort.
