“Stunning View Of Lake Hallstatt”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

The Rudolfsturm is located at the top of the funicular that takes you up to the salt mine. It's also the location for the new viewing platform that opened on the 15th August 2013.The menu is traditional Austrian. Staff were nice and friendly and we had a good chat as the restaurant was quiet. The views from the outside terrace are incredible. Worth a visit on the way back from doing the salt mine tour. Would recommend doing the tour early then lunch here. We both had the wiener schnitzel which was excellent.

“Good food and stunning surroundings”
Reviewed 27 May 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is situated at the top of the funicular on the way to salt mine. The menu is a little limited but is of high quality and extremely tasty and consists of traditional Austrian fare. Staff were warm, friendly and attentive and service was quick and efficient. The scenes from the upper dining area are stunning and several tables are built into the window recess so you can take in the scenery whilst dining. Well worth a visit and considering its remote location, the prices were reasonable as well. Would I go again. .. I certainly would and recommend it

“Stunning scenery, but average service”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

The restaurant offers a stunning view to the lake and the mountains surrounding it, but we found the service rather average. The waiters were not very friendly and attentive. The choice on the menu is not very big, especially if you are looking for something vegetarian, but at least the food we chose was quite delicious (some local speciality including potatoes and mushrooms in a creamy sauce).
