Nice restaurant

It was the closest restaurant near our hotel. We looked at the menu at the outside and decided to go in for a cheese fondue. Friendly staff and when we checked the menu again we decided to take the bare cheese fondue. It was very good with the side dishes. Friendly and fast service. We will come... read more

We used this restaurant prior to returning to the hotel. It was not one of the cheapest around, asked if salad was wanted, most nights it was complimentary. However when the bill came found it had been charged for, not only that but they converted the bill to sterling instead of being given the option to pay in Swiss currency.... More

The fondue is excellent and so are the other dishes. We had something similar to stroganoff that was excellent and also a great veal dish. The staff is very friendly and understand English. The patio is very nice also.

Our group of 8 tourists from Thailand really enjoyed our first Swiss meal at Restaurant Baren: great food, good wine, and friendly services.

We have dined in this restaurant several times, and the food is always of good quality. However, we find the fact that the owners are always watching over diners and waiting staff rather off-putting, and this makes it difficult to relax and enjoy the experience.

My partner and I came here for Christmas dinner. We stumbled on the restaurant because almost everything else was closed. At a first glance at the menu we thought the prices were too high (even for Interlaken/Unterseen) but we stayed anyway. The food was delicious, well worth the money spent and the service was extremely friendly. I've read a few... More

Very nice restaurant, got to see the cooks grill food right next to our table at the 'grill station' they had. Fondue is a bit on the pricey side, but lives up to its standard (cheese, cheese w/mushrooms, or cheese w/bell peppers). Service was quick and staff was friendly and accomodating. Would like to go back and try more food.

We loved our dinner experience at Baren. Located in the old town part of Interlaken, it has a cozy and quaint atmosphere. We didn't want touristy or fancy --just good traditional food and that's exactly what we got. We started with garden salads, followed by raclette and schnitzel. The portions were large, the food was delicious and the service was... More
