“Great food, fantastic location”
Reviewed 2 January 2013

Just at the top of the Sonnenalm Cable car, Blaickner's is a popular place for lunch, indoor or outdoor. The views are stunning, and if the sun's shining, it can be quite warm.
They have both a waiter service restaurant and a self service restaurant, so chose which suits, we normally go for the waiter service restaurant, especially if it's snowing as the inside is very nice, with a super fire going.
The menu has probably fewer options than other places on the mountain, but there is still plenty to chose from. The Tyroler grostel is one of the better ones, but it's served on a plate rather than in the metal pan, which is slightly disappointing. Service is very good, and the food and drink arrive fairly quickly after ordering.
Also highly recommended for a mid morning / afternoon hot chocolate.

“Amaaaaasin!!!! Yummy food on sun sparkling over fantastic snow!!!!!”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

At the top of Sonnenalmbahn do not miss the best food on slopes. Order small home made pasta with melted cheese, wurstl, apfelstrudle and inevitable beer Weissbier. The best taste and yet, the price is a good surprise.My bill for 2 very, very hungry persons on 18.02.2012 14.37.18 was like this: 1 KASNOCKN -9.5, 1 SCHWINSBRATWURSTL 8, 1 APFELSTR.M.VANILL 4.8, 1 WEISSBIER GROSS - 4.2, 1 2CL WILLIAMS 3.4, 1 WASSER 0.25 LIT 0.5, TOTAL: Euro 30.40
Almost forgot to mention - do not miss to order WILLIAMS, local pear short drink.
If it's sunny, they make a snow terrace with sunchairs with THE View on the opposite side slopes, so you rest on sun, sipp your drink and watch skiers cutting the slopes on the other side of the mountain...amaaaaaaaasing!
