Where to Eat on Mt Buller
Chances are you’re going work up a huge appetite if you spend the day shredding up the slopes on Mount Buller. The great news is the alpine resort has plenty of food options to suit all tastes and dietary requirements. Here’s a list of some of our favourite spots to sit back, unwind and re-fuel before you head back out into the snow.
Dry yourself off at the Chamois, one of Buller’s most popular restaurants. Chef Riki Maiden has put together a menu of modern Australian fare with an emphasis on local ingredients. Think slow cooked meats or a heart plate of fresh potato gnocchi. This place is great for big groups or a more intimate get togethers.
You’re sure to have a good time when the Kaptan’s in charge. It’s got a traditional European Alpine ambience with cosy table settings and a roaring fireplace. They’re serving delicious regional cuisine and Australian specialities.
Pat’s Italian Restaurant and Bar
This one is an icon of Mountain life. It’s got fabulous food, great prices and a fun atmosphere. You never know who’ll run into at Pat’s.
If you’re in the mood for some Asian-infused flavour, head on down to Popo Kitchen. They have dim sims, rice and noodle dishes, curries and more. It’s the perfect place for a quick bite if you’re itching to get back out there for more fun in the snow.
Nothing like a burger to fill you up after a big day. This one’s located inside George’s ski hire building. It’s still relatively new but the Mythic Chicken Burger in particular is gaining quite the reputation on the ski fields among burger connoisseurs. They’ve also got a big outdoor area out the back which is great for bigger groups who want to meet up and debrief about the day.
Giddy up! This is one of the most cosy and lively restaurants and wine bars on the mountain. Slide in and leave your gear at the door if you want a sit down for a drink. Or can comfortable and commit to the full dining experience. Hot tip: try the pork belly, prawn and risotto dishes.
