As one of the more popular holiday locales, Kitzbuhel has plenty to offer savvy travellers during a holiday to Austria. You'll be glad to learn that food is high among those perks, with restaurants here ranging from local family run affairs to vibrant multicultural diners. Here are some of our recommendations.
Both local people and holidaymakers are happy to return to Huber Brau, found in the town's historic quarter. Authentic dishes are aplenty and make for generously portioned platters, making this a great pit stop during an afternoon's sightseeing.
This seafood specialist imports all of its lobsters fresh from the east coast of the United States. Intimate surroundings make the snow outside almost a distant memory, while meals are prepared and presented with delicate care and attention. Beyond the shellfish and seafood stews, make sure you tuck into the desserts before heading back to the slopes.
Roast pork, delicately spiced chicken and crisp salads make up much of the menu at Gasthof Eggerwirt, whose exterior resembles a classic alpine ski lodge. Inside, you'll find warm varnished furniture and cosy lighting, though you might prefer to dine al fresco.
You'll feel as though you've stepped into an Italian trattoria as soon as you enter El Moro de Venezia. While Italian greats like pasta and lasagna make up much of the menu, the vibrant and varied selection of pizzas, all handmade and freshly baked, is what entices travellers back time and time again.
Fusion food is big these days, and at Lois Stern you can expect a good mix of elements from Thailand combined with local delicacies and flavours from wider Europe. Things are kept authentic thanks to the focus on locally sourced ingredients though, and the open plan kitchen ensures cooking is shown off with plenty of flair and theatrics.
Billed as a summer venue but popular all year round, this American style diner hits all the high notes. Eating outside with a big juicy burger in hand is certainly a temptation, but you can also grab a bucket of big sticky barbecue ribs indoors or even a juicy steak.
Tucked into a valley, this restaurant is the picture of Austrian holiday hospitality. Wood panels and enticing flavours promise plenty, yet the real draw is the wine cellar, which houses 100 bottles at any given time. The flavours there are taken in from across the globe, and the staff will happily pair your chosen tipple's flavour with a menu recommendation.
With its coffee shop aesthetics, inexpensive yet enormous cakes and good selection of vegetarian and vegan options, Pano is a popular lunchtime spot. In warmer months the ice cream cart sits on the street outside to entice you with cones of sweet flavours.
Small but perfectly formed, it's here where you'll find countless pork chops and Thai curries waiting on the menu. Holzer's has earned a solid reputation for good food prepared fast and served with a smile. Grand views outside show off the rolling hills and wooded groves while the interior is cosy and inviting.
For all its local flavour and defining allure, Zinnkrug also comes with a superb British staple. The fish and chips here promise fluffy fries and bubbly batter, all with fresh fish cooked to perfection. Peruse the menu further to find turkey and game meats, together with more traditional soups and broths.
