Wonderful place to enjoy the amazing view on the top of a mountain. And to taste the really delicious pizza and Kaiserschmarrn. We went two times in our holidays to the place. And enjoyed it Everytime. The waitresses and the boss were fast, politely and attentive. We get the food in minutes. But I suggest to reserve the table before.... More

Without doubt one of the best alm's I've ever visited. Amazing views, high quality modern but appropriate decor, and fantastic food. Catered for our group of 18 for lunch with ease.

Balmalp is the best stop during the day in Lech. Great restaurant. The scenery is unique. Goulash soup is delicious. A nice place to get some rest.

Ball alp is a lovely restaurant perched on the cliffs overlooking Zug, right beside lift 2. You can also get there from Lech on lift 6 with a short flat section of poling or walking. The outdoor terrace is a fantastic place for a sunny lunch with glorious views over Zug and beyond. And for colder days the inside is... More

This is the only place in the mountains where I get the Nikki Beach-feeiling. We always stop here - every year when we visit St Anton/the Arlberg area and it is not a short pit stop, rather hours of joy!

A quick pit stop for hot choco clock. Nice outside bar with great views. Loved the display of empty champagne bottles dotted around!

My husband and I stopped here for lunch on our last day of skiing after my ski-instructor recommended it and we only wished we had come earlier. The atmosphere is great, views of the Alpes stunning and the food and drinks scrumptious. The staff is very accommodating and despite the place being full the waiter immediately found 2 seats for...

This place has got it all... Great food, superb interior design - a mix of traditional alpine style and sleek modern lines - and an atmosphere you would normally find at the high-end beach clubs in Ibiza or Mykonos... Super cool music, good looking people, great location bang in the sun... Absolutely loved it... The only minus: terrace is rather... More
