There's a pretty big choice of eateries in St Wolfgang, though unfortunately a lot of them are closed in January and February. Most restaurants stick to traditional Austrian meat and cheese dishes, so don't expect a huge amount of variety.
• Gasthof Franz Josef - With a strong reputation for traditional home-cooked food, generous portions and stunning lake views, it's no wonder this place is so popular.
• Kraftstoff Bar - American-style burgers make a nice change from the usual Austrian fare. It's family-run, family-friendly and popular with the locals.
• Seerestaurant, Hotel Im Weissen Rössl - Visit this famous hotel for a gourmet meal created with local ingredients like fresh fish and sheep's milk. The lake views are amazing, and the signature desserts are delectable.
• Dorf Alm - Get an authentic taste of Austria with charming dining rooms and hearty cuisine - plus the nail game, and occasional live Austrian music and yodelling competitions.
St Wolfgang isn't home to raucous and rowdy bars and huts, but you will find friendly spots ideal for reminiscing about your day on the mountain. More lively venues tend to be in the village and, ironically, tends to be in the cafés.
• Dorf Alm - Make your way here on Mondays for an authentic evening of Austrian nails, yodelling competitions, traditional dress and music. It's guaranteed to be a fun night all round.
