It's next to the main road but away from the tourists. Service is quick and friendly, portions huge and tasty, prices reasonable. Authentic although Berthahof has more character

I enjoyed two meals at Lafener Stube , a stone's throw from the excellent Pension Wisenhof where I stayed.I easily succumbed to a favorite soup with Griesnokerl on the first visit, the other I had delicious spinach 'Knödels' and an alcohol-free beer.I think I was the only 'tourist...as its was a favorite of the locals who speak their own dialect!

Average priced local cuisine restaurant with nice chef. In comparison to other restaurants in the area, a good value-for-money spot with very good service and tasty dishes! Sitting outside on a terrace is possible but unfortunately right next to the busy main street...

You are looking for ambitious austrian cooking in bad hofgastein with local people, away from quick common tourist spots, you've got it! If you come around, try the nut schnaps!

The last eve of our holiday we drove up to this place for dinner. We were welcomed warmly. My boyfriend had the Lafener steak, which was particularly very tasty. I love the fact that they served vegetables too. The strange thing is that you can't pay with a card, only cash. Fortunately the staff was extremely relaxed and told us... More

Great food, especially the goulash soup and the steaks. Wine menu a little limited (not a problem for us), a little basic knowledge of German is useful. We didn't like the smoky atmosphere in the bar area but the restaurant area is fine.

Don't get discouraged by the simple interior and smoking at the bar....food is excellent, don't miss chocolate mousse.

Our family of 5 had Christmas dinner here. We were in Bad Hofgastein for a week and this was the best food we had. Wolfgang and his wife are very freundlich. We tried to go back, but it was a Tuesday and they were closed ... So we ate at the pizzeria next door ... Also very good.

Magic, complete and unexpected magic!!! From the outside, you have no inkling about what may be expected at your table. The chef, Wolfgang, is part of an elite catering service that cooks for special events such as the Formula 1 VIP's....but, being the humble and simple man that he is, prefers to live in his hometown with his wife, children...

fletschbergerwolfgang@hotmail.com......this restaurant belongs to Wolfgang Fletschberger who has the most incredible history of cooking for VIP's at Formula 1 and other such special events. He is a WORLD class chef who has decided to remain in his village and his restaurant is modest, but the food is Michelin star caliber. Anyone traveling to this area NEEDS to be advised of this Godly establishment which offers some of the most memorable food I have ever eaten.
