Are you looking for the best places for lunch in St.Anton, both on and of the mountain? With the Sidney Reilly Ultimate guide to St.Anton we have the answers for you! There are many, many places where you can stop to eat and drink at any time of the day whilst skiing around St.Anton. There are big self-service restaurants on Rendl; Gampen & Galzig all of which do reasonably priced good food. There is nothing wrong with these places but they do cater for the mass market. There are many great restaurants and hotels around the ski slopes that offer really good food to suit all tastes and budgets. Below is our selection of the best and if you click here you will find our recommendations for eating out in the evenings.
The food at TAPS is extremely good and not expensive. Popular opinion has it that they do the best ribs on the mountain, for us though the Taps Burger is tops. This is definitely one of the best places for lunch in and around St.Anton. When the sun is out you can sit out on the terrace or on the balcony and enjoy a beer with your food. Taps is next door to the Krazy Kanguruh apres ski bar. It can be reached by coming down red run no.21 from Gampen. If you are coming from Galzig it is down blue run no.1 (just follow the big sign to Taps & the Krazy Kanguruh) and you will find it.
The Heustadl (Hay Store) has always been a very friendly place to drop into for a few beers and a nice lunch. Food is good and very reasonably priced. There is seating upstairs and downstairs. On hot sunny days they have a large sun terrace. They also have live music here in the afternoons 6 days a week. If the weather is bad then most of the outside terraced can be enclosed. The Heustadl is the first bar on the left as you head down Blue run 1 from below the Zammermoos chairlift.
The Mooserwirt is one the most famous aprés ski bars in the world. However the food is also pretty good here and the portions are very large so it is a good bet for lunch. In peak season it will be very busy although there is plenty of room inside & out. Waiter service that is fast and efficient. From 3pm onwards the aprés ski starts with “The Final Countdown” To get to The Mooserwirt just come down Blue run No.1 past the Zammermoos chairlift. It is the last après ski bar on the mountain – so stay to the right and just follow the noise.
Hotel Apres Ski Stuben
Stuben is such a lovely little village, I think the prettiest in the area. The village has several very nice places to have lunch. In our opinion the very best is the Hotel Aprés Post where the food and service are very good. This is definitely one of the best places for lunch in and around St.Anton and gets our special recommendation. The Post has a tradition going back over 500 years and is a nice mix of the modern and the old. On a sunny day there is a large sun terrace but there is plenty of room inside too. Try and eat in the old wood panelled dining room if you can. To find the Hotel Post ski down to Stuben village and leave your skis in the racks next to the little church. Walk past the church and follow the path to the main village street. Stuben is so small that there is only one main street. You will easily find the Aprés Post Hotel.
The Anton cafe is at the bottom of the slopes by the Galzig Bahn and is next to the Anton Bar. A fun place with a lively atmosphere. Food and service is very good here. If you want to sit outside they have sheep skin rugs on all of the chairs. Nice view over the square at the top of the village and a good place to meet anyone who is not skiing. The Anton Cafe is one of three places all under the same Anton banner. The Anton Bar & The Anton hotel being the other two. The hotel is also open for nice lunches and a breakfast buffet.
Griabli is a very good place to go for lunch. Situated on the slopes just above St.Anton with nice indoor and outdoor dining. The food is very good and the service also excellent. There is a nice log fire in the inside dining area. Just below Taps & the Krazy Kanguruh and next to the Mooserwirt. The Griabli also does aprés ski each day and some days they also have live music. From 8pm onwards it is also a nice family restaurant.
The Rodel Alm
The Rodel-Alm offers great food in generous proportions at amazing prices. It is therefore very popular so you will need to get here early. It has a very large sun terrace and a traditional Tyrolean atmosphere. The speciality is the spit roasted chicken – half a chicken and chips for about 12 Euro is great value! The Rodel-Alm is on the left coming down run 33 towards the Nasserein gondola. This is definitely one of the best places for lunch in and around St.Anton and gets our special recommendation.
The Verwall stube is situated in the lift station at the top of the Galzigbahn. It is a gourmet restaurant for those of you wanting to part with large amounts of Euro in return for extremely good food! On those blue sky days there is a great sun terrace. The terrace looks out towards the Verwall and Rendl from where you can enjoy a glass of champagne or vintage wine. This restaurant is not cheap but it is the very best on the mountain. The service is first class. Best plan for a long lunch and you will need to book in advance.
The Arlberg Thaja is in the pretty village of St.Christoph. It is built in traditional Tyrolian style and serves a variety of good food. It has great views across the slopes and St.Christoph. Plan to get here early as it gets very busy for lunch. Serves soups and a good selection of tradition tyrolian food. The Thaja is on run No.64 on the top right of the slopes as you come down from the back of the Galzigbahn.
Another restaurant in the village where you can meet non skiers. The Galzig Bistro is right on the roundabout between the Galzigbahn and the Rendlbahn. It serves extremely good food, wine and cocktails. There is both indoor and outdoor seating with waiter service. This is a very popular spot so it gets very busy at lunchtimes. This is definitely one of the best places for lunch in and around St.Anton and gets our special recommendation. Also open in the evenings when again it serves great food and is always busy.
