“Great food , great staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

The staff are very nice , Joe is a legend. They might "squeeze" you in when it is busy but the food has always been very good. Have been to this restaurant at least 10 times, over many years . The service is good. When I go back to the skiwelt I will be stopping by for lunch yet again. The local specials are especially nice.

“Mixed opinions: two visits, one good and one bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

We stopped twice at this restaurant. the first time was a good experience, the second one (much) less so.

We were skiing at New year between 2013 and 2014, so the slopes were very busy and therefore the restaurants as well and I have taken this into account while writing my review.

The first time we found a table within 10 minutes, which was pretty good as it is a very busy time of year. We ordered, were served drinks and food, and paid reasonably quickly considering how busy it was. The prices are acceptable and the food is good, as good as we had anywhere else all week and better than some ... hence our decision to return on the last day of our holiday.

On our second trip it took just five minutes to get a table and we thought we were in luck. However, it took 15 minutes to order drinks and were told that we could not order food for another 10 minutes, which seemed strange. Despite trying several more times to order food we did not succeed, always being told that we still had to wait. After 50 minutes waiting, and still not having ordered food, we paid for our drinks and left. This was not an accident in that we were overlooked, there were several tables having the same problem. We could not work out what the problem was. Either there was a technical problem, or the kitchen simply was too small for the number of tables ... in which case it needs a bigger kitchen or less tables. Maybe some tables should be reserved 'just for drinks' and then only have as many tables for food as can actually be served.

Conclusion, if you get served it is a place worth stopping at for lunch (the breakfast menu also looked good but we did not try it), with good food and atmosphere. If you're unlucky, you'll be skiing in the afternoon on an empty tank.

“Lovely Gasthof up the Mountain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

This Gasthof is lovely at the top of Sheffau just a short walk from the Gondola. Does a lovely hot chocolate when the snow is coming down as it did this year. It is nice when you walk in and the fire is on very cosy and sometimes very busy.

“Extra Points”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

Big pine waiter service place. Coffee 2€30, tea 2€, Hot chocolate 3€. The Tanzbodenalm hut is down the slope from the Brandstadl, up from the Marchental - all nice, efficient motorway service stations, but you gotta give extra points to the Tanzbodenalm for waitresses in Lederhosen. Waiters too.

Zoom on past and you get to Ellmau, turn left and you are on the blue down to Scheffau. Turn right and you go down to the Eiberg lifts. So it's very central for the skiing above Scheffau and a good place to meet up.
