St. Anton is one of the oldest and finest ski resorts in the Alps, boasting spectacular accommodations, world-class skiing, and remarkable restaurants. Not only is St. Anton a powder skier’s dream, it is also home to excellent culinary establishments. After you’re finished carving up the mountain, check out one of St. Anton’s restaurants.


Housed in a traditional Austrian chalet, Thony’s is an excellent place to sample a truly authentic meal. Conveniently located by the toboggan run (perfect to keep the little ones entrained!), Thony’s is a cosy Tyrolean hut with a warming atmosphere. Here you should try one of Thony’s classics, like the soups, pork knuckle, schnitzel, and chips – the perfect fuel during the day. The interior is inviting and adds to the atmosphere, with a huge tiled stove taking pride of place in its snug surroundings.

Museum Restaurant Cafe

For a unique meal in a unique setting, visit the Museum Restaurant Cafe when you travel to St. Anton. The restaurant is set in a tastefully refurbished historic mansion, moments away from the ski slopes and gondolas. Built in 1912 and subsequently transformed into the Ski & Local Heritage Museum in 1981, the restaurant has plenty of character. The menu is typically Austrian, with some international influences. Dishes are seasonal and prepared using delicious local produce.

Skiing Buddha

For a less traditional meal, visit the Skiing Buddha, arguably one of the best restaurants in St. Anton. Despite its less authentic roots, it is a go-to choice for many in the ski resort. The restaurant serves typical Thai dishes with other Southeast Asian options, perfect for vegans and vegetarians. The restaurant offers a laid-back atmosphere and isn’t too pricey, a great spot for a relaxed lunchtime or evening meal.

Verwallstube is an excellent choice for a mountain meal. The views are breathtaking, especially from the sun-drenched terrace. The restaurant is more sophisticated than your typical mountain hut, serving locally sourced game, bouillabaisse, truffle risotto, and yellow-fin sashimi. Despite not serving the normal fare, Verwallstube doesn’t have a pretentious atmosphere. It’s a great place for laid-back skiers who enjoy a unique culinary experience. The restaurant is open on Thursday evenings, where the Galzig gondola exclusively runs for reservations. Dinner must be ordered in advance and the price includes the lift gondola ride.

Galzig Bistrobar

Described as ‘great food, great company, nice drinks’ by themselves, Galzig Bistrotbar is fantastic for relaxed diners. The bistrot only takes walk-ins but don’t worry, they will find you a table as quickly as possible. Galzig Bistrotbar is known for its excellent burgers (with veggie options!) and range of international dishes. There will be something for everyone here, with pasta, steak, British classics, and Austrian classics on the menu, you can’t go wrong. The restaurant tends to be busy, with many venturing straight off the slope and right inside the bistro bar.

Bodega – Tapas Vinos

Bodega Tapas Vinos specialises in Spanish delicacies and is located in the heart of St. Anton am Arlberg. The restaurant seats up to 45 covers, with some at the bar, a nice spot to enjoy a bite to eat. Bodega offers a buzzy atmosphere, serving the non-traditional tapas dishes of prawn pil pil, padron peppers, and patatas bravas, washed down with sangria. The wine list is pretty good too, with several delicious Spanish wines to choose from.
