Kitzbuehel best restaurants: where to eat in the Austrian city

guide to the best restaurants in Kitzbühel, Austria, is necessary, because the popular ski resort of Tyrol has been a destination for lots of tourists from Italy, Germany, Switzerland and other neighboring countries for many years now. After skiing for the whole morning or having witnessed to the downhill skiing on the legendary Streif, said tourists cannot wait to sit down and being able to enjoy the local specialties.

A restaurant in Kitzbühel definitely worth trying is Huberbrau Stuberl, in Vorderstadt 18: it has a typical Tyrolean atmosphere and it is located in the center of the city: here you will find good food, good beer and good prices. Thumbs up also for the Gourmetrestaurant of Hotel Tennerhof, in Griesenauweg 26, which serves very refined dishes, suitable for demanding palates. It is obviously expensive, but totally worth it.

Many visitors in Kitzbühel prefer instead the Steuerberg inn, in Bichlachweg 78: this place is highly recommended for its Tafelspitz (boiled beef), so tender you can cut it with a fork, and for its Schmarrn, a delicious dessert. Another excellent restaurant is the 1st Lobster in Kitzbühel Im Gries 6: its home cooking is very much appreciated by the locals but now it begins to attract even the hungry palates of the most demanding tourists.

Then there is the Hotel Zur Tenne Restaurant, in Vorstadt 8-10, which offers a great deal of refined and carefully prepared mountain dishes; the Gasthof Melkalm restaurant, in 32 Hahnenkamm, offers you dishes with large portions and great quality, plus you surely get good value for your money (particularly recommended are the Melkalmsalat, which is a steak salad, and the homemade strudel); finally, the Berggasthof Hagstein restaurant, in Hagsteinweg 95, serves authentically Tyrolean food and sweets.

In any case, all the best restaurants in Kitzbühel have on their menu the best specialties of the  Tyrolean cuisine, something you absolutely have to taste when visiting that area: the Gröstl (a potatoes, meat and bacon pie), the Kaiserschmarrn (an irregular pancake), the cheese Spätzle (dumplings), the Fladenbrot (fragrant farming bread), the chanterelle goulash with potato dumplings, the Kaspressknödel (cheese dumplings) and, of course, the apple strudel.
