“Not as good as it used to be?”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

Dorfstadl came highly recommended but we were disappointed. Dinner was excruciatingly slow - our appetisers of just soup took more than 30 minutes to arrive - and the food was not as good as the prices and former Michelin star would suggest. Lamb was overlooked and flavourless. Mixed grill (house specialty) was fine but nothing special. The 'hot stone' meals seemed like more of a gimmick than a tasty or good way to cook food. Beware the tables in the bar area - after 9pm it is a smoking section and we ended up with two cigars smokers blowing smoke into our dessert.

“Somewhere nice to eat on the staff's night off”
Reviewed 30 December 2012

We booked this restaurant through our Crystal rep as we needed somehere to eat on the night our chalet staff had off. The service was friendly and the decor was traditionally Austrian. We had a traditional starter and then chose the ribs and steak hot plate which were amazing. The dessert was delicious and the whole meal was great value for money.

“excellent food, very friendly staff”
Reviewed 9 August 2012

We come to Kaprun several times a year, and never miss the opportunity for a dinner at the Dorfstadl. The food is very good, the prices are fair (12€ for an XXL schnitzel for example) and the waitress / owner still takes time for you personally. Much friendlier then many other restaurants. Atmosphere is very nice, beautiful interior and with nice weather one can sit outside on the (heated) terrace. Extra advantage then is that it is located further away from the main roads, so it is also more quite and less (traffic) noisy. A place to be recommended!

“Bad service”
Reviewed 6 July 2012

We visited this restaurant twice and alwas we had feeling that the service should be better (although we speak German). Especially the waitress wasn´t nice and was a little bit stiff. Maybe she preferred local visitors but we made a high order.
The food was very good, nice atmosphere but due to the service we found other restaurants.
They charge for appetiser 1.5 Euro for portion so in case you a re more people, it´s not adequate.
Comparing to other restaurants in Kaprun we decided to visited other restaurants. In my opinion, Dorfstadl felt to be successful in the past but in the last years in Kaprun are so many new possibilites with nice people and atmosphere. That´s a pity but we will not go back.
