Where to Eat in Oberstdorf: The Best Restaurants and Bars

April 4, 2018 Hector Krause

One of Germany’s biggest and best-known resorts, Bavarian Alpine village Oberstdorf is popular with families year round. It’s home to Heini-Klopfer-Skiflugschanze, the world's second largest ski-jumping hill (and site of the famous "agony of defeat" ski-jump wipeout clip from ABC's Wide World of Sports). Nearby are the ski areas of Nebelhorn, Kanzelwand/Fellhorn and Kleinwalsertal.

Restaurant Allgaeu

We bumped into this restaurant during an afternoon stroll in Oberstdorf, quickly checked Tripadvisor and based on the positive feedback decided to go for lunch here. We were welcomed in the most friendly was and checked if they would be able to serve one vegan meal as well, no problem! The kids got their stuffies to do some drawings, we always enjoy that as well. The (beautiful) hostess, who runs the restaurant with her husband who's the chef, had inquired in the kitchen what was possible and suggested a pasta dish with veggies as a vegan option. I always agree with suggestion but obviously this can go many ways but it was delicious! The others also got generous dishes that were equally enjoyed. The combination of great food and super service always works for me, combined with the traditional Bavarian inside of the place makes this one a winner for me.

After being refused entry to seven german restaurants which were full we decided to try this little half empty Italian restaurant in a cellar. I was pleasantly surprised, I had tortellini and it was amazing. The staff were attentive and pretty good, well worth a look if you need a break from german.

You need to book, it was very busy. We had reserved a table for my wife's birthday. Great local beer and outstanding food. Service was great and you are not rushed. Great atmosphere, we will be back for a music night.

I originally found this restaurant when looking for places that offer gluten free food.
They do and the stuff they serve is delicious. In two different vacations we have now been there about ten times ;-) They serve "local" dishes of which the baked Bergkäse is my favorite. The portions are good, so no need for a starter. Especially given they have some very nice Deserts.
I would advise you to make an reservation. Especially if you need gluten free, you have to order one day earlier. If you do, you can get nearly everything on their menu gluten free, which is awesome.

Not sure which was the best: view, food, or service!!
Soft Sherpa blankets on beautiful wooden carved benches, indoor and outdoor dining overlooking stunning mountain scenery. Local caught venison was so tender you could cut it with a fork; and the Goulash....YUM was also outstanding, as was the tomato soup and chocolate cake.
Dogs welcomed and treated to their own bowls. Families welcomed on their way hiking through the countryside.
I'd come back here in a heartbeat if I were to visit the area again. It's a short and scenic drive slightly outside of town, but don't let this deter you from finding the place ...as you are in for quite a treat!

Have eaten here many times over the years and have always found the food to be excellent. Recently the hotel and restaurant has been completely modernised and updated following a fire a couple of years ago. This restaurant is always popular particularly at weekends in the season. The menu offers a good variety of local dishes which are always cooked and presented well. Dishes of note are the pork knuckle and duck which are always worth trying. Always a must

Came here with high expectations and they were met with on all levels. Food was innovative yet still very much in line with the best of Bavaria. They even had a vegan/ vegetarian/ no carb option!! Very rare in these parts and much appreciated by my wife. Service was excellent as well. Will be definitely returning soon.

Die Spezerei is situated in a pedestrian area very near to Oberstdorf Haus and is a perfect place to sit and watch the tourists go by. We stopped here for kaffee und kuchen and really enjoyed the top quality cakes and the relaxed atmosphere. My wife commented that it was the best milky coffee she had all holiday.

Das Maximilians

Reviewed By MataiDubai - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

For a one Michelin star restaurant this is just not good enough. I would have been disappointed without the shiny star and with....well I was more than a little irritated in spending a precious evening here. All courses lacked clarity and perspective. The balance was out, sweetness to high, acidity too low, the beef (topside for goodness sakes!) was cooked sous vide so it was as dry as an old boot. Red, dry topside beef cooked sous vide in a Michelin starred restaurant? No, this is all wrong. The beef was cooked two ways and the braised version fared no better, a tough dry piece of sawdust in my mouth due to both completely unsuitable braising technique and part of the animal. The mini chocolate ice-cream on a stick had novelty value but was a kids dessert - the sweetness was completely overpowering rendering it to resemble something you buy in plastic at the grocery shop (i.e. a cheap commercial product due to the high sugar levels). The quince soup with poppy seed has to be the most revolting thing I've tasted in a very long while. I love Germany, I enjoy the food, I understand the balance of flavours in most cuisine varieties and respect and relish all of it when done well. This was just not. I cannot recall since being a 5 year old actually recoiling at something on my plate but that quince soup dessert did just that and we left as quickly as we could with it untouched. The atmosphere is tired and somewhat dated, the service was far from the sharp service that is at the "starred" level. We were staying in-house and for obvious reasons didn't return to Maximilians but enjoyed several evening meals in the beautiful village restaurants of Oberstdorf. Sorry if this review is tough but from my perspective it is honest.

The food is great. The staff are proficient. No complaints but we do prefer the traditional Bavarian feel that comes with a lot of the restaurants in Oberstdorf. This is upscale dining by Oberstdorf standards.
