When we visited we were seated by the owner who helped translate the menu for us as our German is not bad but certainly not brilliant.

We were in the mood for traditional Bavarian and she tweaked the menu slightly so that we got exactly what we wanted.

When it arrived the food was second to none, large portions and tasted perfect. We ordered the spatzle with beef and everything just melted in the mouth.

We asked what wines went best with the dish and were given two options and we decided to try a glass of each and oh my goodness they were exceptional and brilliant value.

Over all cannot recommend highly enough - this is THE place to eat in Oberstdorf

Superb evening meal. I chose the venison roast off the daily special menu, which was superb, although the highlight of the dish was the best red cabbage I have ever tasted! The sauce and spätzle were excellent too.

I wanted to test some of their cheese too, so ordered a "small" plate of cheese and bread to finish up. It was huge! Goodness knows what the large platter is like!

I was on my own and had not booked, so was placed on a large table with some other customers. Absolutely no problem as my fellow diners were charming, but if you want a table of your own, early reservation is recommended.

A couple on the table next door shared a fondue (min. 2 people to order) which looked superb, and the appreciative noises from their table suggested that it tasted good too!

A coffee and a local schnapps rounded off my meal well, and I was presented with a complimentary milk-based schnapps at the end.

With a (very) full stomach, and a surprisingly reasonable bill paid, I left the Gaststube. I will definitely be visiting again when I am next in Oberstdorf. Highly recommended.

After reading all the positive TA reviews, we reserved a table at Alt 168. It was an extremely disappointing experience. We were the only people in the restaurant, which says something, as most of the other restaurants in this area were full. I chose the Oberstdorf pork steak, and my wife had the lasagne with a side salad. The meals were only of average quality. There are better restaurants in this part of Oberstdorf.

We had the Forelle Mullerin here, and it was delicious, as was the Topfelstrudel, and it was nice to dine outside.
