“Not bad but lacks sophistication”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

We visited this restaurant again this year with our party for one of the groups birthday dinners. Yes the ribs are quite good but almost a bit too salty(some people with strong hearts might prefer this). I still have the impression with this restaurant that they concentrate on massive portions of simple food rather than having much sophistication on the menu.

If you want a massive plate of simply roasted meat you will be happy. If you want a culinary experience with sophisticated tastes you will be very disappointed.

The one vegetarian in our group did not find anything she liked.

If you are staying in one of the good hotels in Saalbach and go here you will feel you are missing out. We missed our beautiful 5 course hotel meal to go to this restaurant ...just an OK I'm afraid, and quite pricey for such simple fare.

“Convenient position”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Its at the bottom of the Bernkogel run but only about 150m from the main street of Saalbach. So access by ski and foot. Views up the mountain from outdoor seating. Some deck chairs available. The food is standard Austrian which is usually quite good - but I did have a Groestl where the potatoes were well undercooked. The owner is friendly and chatty if you meet him.

“Return Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Another on the annual re visit circuit and well worth the effort to get there. Spare Ribs were again outstanding and Mine Host his usual dry and friendly self and making sure we were well looked after. As a place to dine on your ski trip, its well up there and superior to a lot of junk in the main village.

“Average fondue”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

I went to Backstatt Stall for an evening fondue meal. The decor is typical Austrian style with a nice vibe.

The fondue was average with a lack of salad accompanying the meat. The service was also fairly slow and we had to
prompt the staff for our desserts. The staff were friendly however and happy to change the included dessert for something different and also added a sparkler to my girlfriend's dessert as it was her birthday.

All in all I'd recommend the place but don't expect anything special.
