We were looking for a fun, authentic Austrian restaurant and Goassstal was perfect. Located on the side of the mountain you can either arrive by skiing or from the street below, it’s an intense climb. Follow the one arrow which points upward on the street. There is a wood door that leads through a tunnel under the slope to the restaurant. We missed the tunnel and walked up the slope. Another arrow would have been helpful. However the vibe was apparent as soon as we arrived. There is much outdoor Seating full to the brim with skiers. We opted to sit inside. It was crowded but that just added to the ambiance. We shared a table with another couple and enjoyed a cappuccino. Big screen tv was on and everyone was watching slalom races. The goat decor with an Austrian twist was fun. Even live goats could be seen behind glass Ziachi/Rene was our server. He was both attentive and informative about the restaurant. We wanted to come back for dinner but they were fully occupied. Make Reservations in advance to enjoy this truly authentic Austrian restaurant. Make the effort via skiing or walking so worth it.

We passed by Rosswald-Hutte a few times and were lucky enough to finally try it. It was packed but the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food was very tasty and authentic; exactly what you'd expect in the Austrian alps. If in Saalbach, definitely recommended!

Visited Alm for lunch and was lucky to pick a day when there was a band playing. Food was good along with the service although there was a big problem with some wasps which made sitting outside a bit uncomfortable.
The views from this alm are great which look across Saalbach and the surrounding Mountains. Plenty of activities for children and there is a museum at the end of the garden which was very interesting.

We are a large group that has eaten here twice. Every meal has been very good (Cordon Bleu perhaps the least good). The service is very friendly and the view is beautiful. I shared a Keiserschmarren (shredded pancake) for dessert and it was fabulous.

Visited here on a very busy night last week. The service was very slow and as we were upstairs in a corner it was very hard to get anyone's attention. Having said that, the waitress was very friendly. It definitely has a much better ambience downstairs. One of our party is a vegetarian and there was only the pizza option available as there was nothing else on the menu suitable. The food was generally of a good standard but nothing to rave about. Sadly, after eating a burger here my son became quite ill and was being sick in the night. The rest of our party have been fine so it is difficult to put it down to a bug but one can never be sure. I have advised the restaurant who categorically state this cannot possibly due to their food as they follow very high safety standards. I'm sure they do, but it is always best to investigate these matters. I didn't particularly care for their response which warned me to be 'very careful' about making such complaints. Hopefully this was not intended and was a comment lost in translation! We visit Saalbach every year but probably wont be returning here as the standard of food and choice is so high elsewhere.

We had a really enjoyable evening at Spielberghaus for dinner. Food was well prepared and very tasty. Wines and drinks were of sufficient variety. The only problem is that you are required to complete your meal in under two hours as you are shuttled up and down the mountain and need to make space for the next guests.

Although the service is average - Austrian hospitality is not fantastic, on average they do not seem to enjoy having guests - the food was outstanding. In particular the pasta with oil, garlic and prawns. We had it one day, had to come back for seconds. With a nice bottle Ried Gaisberg, it is a thought meal to match. We will come again.

Located halfway down the Rodelbahn or the blue piste coming down from the Reiterkögel middlestation.
They serve Kasknock'n, Germknödel and other traditional Austrian dishes. You pay around 5€ to €7 for a big portion.
You can really taste the food has been prepared over firewood. It has that great smokey flavour you will not find anywhere.
I believe it is the oldest Alm still being used.

As this was very highly rated, we had gone with above average expectations. The menu is extensive and there will be something to suit the whole family. The flavours were also very good but hard to truly enjoy when the ribs and the chicken wings all came over-charred. We had to cut half the skin off all the chicken as it was black and dry. Likewise the ribs were also dry. Not sure if it was an off evening,,,?
