Mountain Restaurants

Damuls-Mellau Mountain Restaurants

Damuls-Mellau ski area offers a good selection of mountain restaurants to choose from, the better ones are on the slopes above Damuls, mostly with sun terraces and the occasional umbrella bar for quick pit stops and easy refuelling.

Damuls-Mellau ski area includes eleven mountain restaurants, nine of which are on south facing slopes above Damuls. Their positions are clearly marked on the ski map by knife and fork symbols, but unfortunately the ski map doesn’t yet name them.

Restaurant menus are offer traditional Austrian fare and are quite reasonably priced. Soup dishes average €3-4, local sausage and fries €5 and main course dishes €10-13. Expect to pay around €20 per person for lunch with drinks, unless investing heavily in the wine list.

Damuls Mountain Restaurants

Elsenalpe Stube is a busy self-service restaurant at the top of UGA-Alp chair lift, which also provides family friendly accommodation and has a popular sun terrace. The popular Hotel Gasthof Walisgaden restaurant (next to the umbrella bar) is worth visiting as is s’Landle where they serve a healthy chicken (fitness) salad, which is recommended. You can reach these restaurants easily via the UGA-Alp chair lift then ski red run 2 in the direction of Walisgaden chair. Downhill next to the valley station of Hohes Licht the Uga Alp is a large self-service restaurant with accommodation.

There are more mountain restaurants worth visiting on the left hand side of the ski area alongside Portla Horn blue and red runs, including Gasthof Sonnenheim and stylish Hotel Alpenstern, both of which have sun terraces.

Mellau Mountain restaurants

Mellau has two on-mountain restaurants at Rosstelle close to the top of the gondola, both include outside terraces, but neither of them can be recommended.

Restaurant Simma is cosy and has seating for 150 with waiter service. Alphof Rossstelle is an impersonal self-service establishment with seating 400 people but the food is disappointing. Also red run 21 above the restaurants is often used for slalom racing and while a couple of hundred Austrian teenagers racing slalom gates is an impressive sight, it’s not quite so appealing when they all pile into Alphof Rossstelle at lunch time.
