Description: In 1999/2000 the Alte Schmiede was built to be an outstanding mountain and ski restaurant with 400 seats, which is open in summer and winter. It belongs to the hotel Krallerhof. In 2008 the Alte Schmiede was extended to accomodate up to 550 guests. Decorated with different awards, the Alte Schmiede is certainly one of the most unique restaurants in the mountains. The focal point is the gallery with a mill from 1885. Lovingly restored, this unique mill still grinds today. Moreover there is a skimuseum in honour of Sepp Altenberger sen. Both, the AsitzBrau and the Alte Schmiede, are ideal starting points for hikes and mountainbike tours. Furthermore, it is a popular spot for concerts, events and tvproductions.

Fantastic locaton, interior and dispite the number of people I am almost eveytime positively surprised by the speed they are able to produce the food in the kitchen.
BUT - It begins to feel like an "eating-factory". The waiters seem to have only one target= as many guests as possible in as little time as possible. Don´t you dare sit and enjoy your meal or you will get many evil eyes from the not-so-serviceminded waiters (male ones are worst).
If you train your staff in friendliness and service we will come back next year!

Alte Schmiede is a beautiful old mountain restaurant with a lot of character. It is located at the top of the piste which leads from the Saalbach ski sector towards the village of Leogang. The restaurant is large, with many interesting decorative features, like a kiln, a watermill, various industrial machines from the 19th century and many antiques. The food is also varied. From traditionally made pizza, to local Austrian delicacies. If the weather is good, choose to eat outside in the sun with the amazing views and good music.

Its busy for lunch here. There are many tables and there is no system for sitting peoply. We had a party of 6 and the waitress tried to move 3 other people round a table that just wouldn't fit us all. The other people wern't happy at this and niether were we. We offered to wait for a table that could accommodate us all. The waitress refused to seat us muttering under her breath in German, "people".

We waited anyway and when another table did become available she sat another group at it.

We were curteous throughout, even as we left but this experience has led us to put this review so others can be warned.

Situated at the top from Leogang, location is excellent. Building is beautiful and food good. We waited for 45-50 minutes for the pizza. When we complained when the pizza finally came, the waiter just took the pizza away and asked :"do you want the pizza or not ?" She also lied about us being warned of slow delivery. We asked to see the boss. He turned out to be even more arrogant, not being willing to apologies at all for the waiting time, nor the slow service
