The first thing that hits you when you come into this restaurant is the smell of fondue cheese, then lots of wood everywhere, on the floor, ceiling, walls, seats, everything - very Swiss. I believe the building dates from the 1600s, it's very atmospheric. The food is traditional Swiss and is really delicious. Pricing isn't too bad either, not the... More

The 2nd night that we ate there our server was rude. Made us feel like they didn't like having repeat customers.

My wife and I were staying at the Sunny Days B&B nearby and ate dinner here 2 of the 3 nights we were here. The service is very good and the traditional Swiss food is outstanding. Try to arrive early as the tables fill up every evening with both tourists and locals.

We liked the ambience inside, and the service and food was very good. We ate early evening and the place filled up while we were there, but service was always good.

convenient location, homey atmosphere, relatively good prices (considering all food in Switzerland is not cheap). Tried a dish recommended by Fodor's travel guide: Suure Mocke "a tangy braised-meat dish that's marinated in wine and vinegar for 2 weeks". It did not disappoint and since the dish included mashed potatoes and a small amount of green beans wrapped in bacon, it... More

This is the best swiss/fondant restaurant in town, it's only 5-min walk from Interlaken West train station, and the service was impeccable! The ambience was also warm and romantic! The food was delicious (cheese fondant & veal steak). P.S. My husband is not a fan of trying anything new, but he loved it!

Very traditional chalet style restaurant, so few of these left now in Interlaken. Nice atmosphere, my wife had quite a good fondue (cheese) but the rösti I had was very dry and bland. Quite expensive also, and very busy even on a Monday so book ahead.

Came here alone to get some authentic Swiss food. What a treat it was! I came late at night, and on the outside it looked closed. But when I entered it was alive and well. Maybe 14 tables on the inside, nice and cozy. I decided to order a cheese fondue, and a lamb dish. The waitress looked at me... More
