Fondue! It was amazing

It was warm and cozy inside. We really enjoyed our dinner here. We had a rosti and a fondue which tasted delicious. The waitress also suggested some good wine pairing. I felt it was a bit pricey though.

We were directed here by our hotel when we asked for local Swiss cuisine. A great recommendation! Service was quick and attentive, and the waitress was helpful to this English-only speaker. Don't be put-off by the busy street. Th screening soon makes you forget that.

This restaurant is handily placed on the road in Unterseen on the bend after you leave Interlaken. It's therefore also convenient for Neuhaus / Manor Farm holidaymakers. We arrived around 9.30pm and without a reservation but the waitress was very accommodating. However, the lady who appeared to be the manageress was rather fierce. It's true to say that tourists are... More

We made a reservation mid-morning as it was Swiss National Day when we visited Interseen and the town was heaving with tourists. It was the same waitress who greeted us with a welcoming smile that evening. We were seated in a wonderful smaller and far more intimate & cosy stübli on the left as you enter. Our food was delicious... More

Really cool outdoor seating area right on a busy street corner. We had fondue and beer and loved every bite. The inside had low ceilings and wooden beams. It has been around since the mid 1600's. Service could have been more pleasant.

A nice swiss restaurant in a 15xx building. The food is good and we tried the traditional Swiss dishes (braised beef). The atmosphere is nice and it is an easy walk from the city center or Interlaken West station.

We were looking to try swiss food, but no idea what would come out. This one was recommended by hotel, better than our expectation, all kind of meat is delicious. You have to pay for "tap" water though.

The food is good and well served, albeit slightly expensive when compared to other similar restaurants of Interlaken. The staff attention to customers is not particularly welcoming. Instead, they show a rather stiff kindness that will not support any departure from the typical eat-pay-and-leave pattern expected from a tourist. We had the impression that the place has two faces, one... More

My wife and I ate here this evening. Our service was perfunctory. My "meatloaf" was actually Spam. I don't know if it's customary to call Spam "meatloaf" here, but it was a surprise to me as it certainly wasn't what I was expecting. An even bigger surprise was the 3.5 Swiss Franc charge for our tap water. We didn't receive... More

We entered the restaurant and asked whether to seat ourselves or if they would seat us. There were 8 empty tables in the rom with 2 having reserved signs and she acted like there was nowhere to put us. In spite of there being 4 other parties (1 established and 2 entering after us), we were ignored. We received no... More
