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

Very nice experience. Casual atmosphere in the "typical" Swiss restaurant. Good service, moderate prices (in a very expensive town). Excellent potato soup and goulash soup, pork cordon bleu and a pork with a brown sauce (2 people ordering). Reservations are helpful to have as the restaurant is quite popular. Go!

We asked our hotel for a restaurant that serves great Swiss food. I have relatives in Switzerland so didn't want a tourist restaurant. They suggested Restaurant Baren. We did get reservations and didn't wait for a menu or anything the entire evening even though they were quite busy. The marathon had just taken place that day. We had the Cordon... More

Very welcoming atmosphere. I was able to speak German, but there is no need. Everyone is conversant in English and the staff is very welcoming and accomodating. Fantastic Swiss Style Food.

Waited for almost 5 minutes upon being seated for the staff to get us the menus. They took ages to get us the bill too. All prices were exorbitant. Cheese fondue for one costed CHF30. Entrees CHF25 onwards. Water was charged. Portions of entrees were small considering the price, but cheese fondue for one could feed two. Salads/leaves accompanying the... More

Went to this restaurant with my wife after I had run the Jungfrau Marathon. Cosy atmosphere, we got a nice table. The potato soup was very much below average and I can't recommend it. The fried grated potato (typical Swiss "Rösti") was very average in taste. The glass of red wine my wife had was a no go. - Next... More

I expected delicious swiss food but it was nothing special. I ordered Rösti & Kalbsleber. It was too simple for me, only rösti and kalbsleber with salty sauce on the plate. It would be nice if they put zucchini, carrot or something vegetable on the side as well. Inside of restaurant is very traditional atmosphere.
