An enjoyable Swiss meal in a lovely old Swiss house

We really enjoyed our meal at this family run restaurant. The service was good and the food was delicious, I had the Cordon Bleu and my husband had a Swiss traditional dish Kalbschnetseltes.

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

Menu seemed good and reasonably priced. Food was quite nice but service was slow. When paying bill not given option to pay in Swiss francs on credit card, thus cost more than expected due to poorer exchange rate
