2. Pizzeria Kegelbahn

  • We arrived in Obertraun around 17:00, by the time we were ready to head out for a walk, most places were closed in Hallstatt (which is 10mins by car) and we could not find anywhere to eat! This was the only place that was open until 22:00 and we were so lucky! You can tell everyone that wants to eat after 19:00, goes to this restaurant. They have a variety of food. We had a margarita pizza which is not freshly made and that’s perfectly fine, spaghetti with vegetables and schnitzel which was my least favorite (based on my taste), tomato salad which was yummy and our favorite garlic soup which is a must if you visit this place! Drinks were a bit pricey so we skipped that and our total with the 4 dishes came around to 40€. I would visit this place again if I came back to this small beautiful village JUST for the garlic soup!
  • Menu had a good selection of options. Staff were very friendly and service was quick. Ate there 2 nights in a row. Favourite options was the lasagna and garlic soup
