"Meat fondue...oops, hold the turkey!"

Needed to wait 2 hours on Saturday night without a reservation, so we made one and came back on Sunday evening. The view of the building exterior and the decorations inside made for a very nice ambience. We ordered a mixed salad and meat fondue (oil). The mixed salad was very good - I would highly... read more

The atmosphere isexceptional, hospitality amazing and the food - as the title of the review suggests - extremely tasty and well presented. We have just returned from staying at the Hotel Baren for 3 weeks and only ate out 1 night in that 3 weeks. We had the daily menu almost every other night except for once when we treated... More

Made a reservation just in case it is full for dinner. We ordered a cheese fondue and rosti, a clear soup with egg inside and 2 glasses of wine. Total bill came up to be CHF68. The cheese fondue was quite nice, it came with some bread that we could dip in the cheese sauce. We ordered for 1 pax... More

We were looking for a truly authentic Swiss restaurant, not a tourist trap and this restaurant fit the bill! It is a very quaint, beautiful restaurant in typical Swiss architecture. The food was great, we indulged in the fondue and each had a rosti dish that was delicious! Highly recommended if you are looking to get away from the touristy... More

If you are looking for good fondue - do yourself a favor and spend good money at des alps. We sought advice but went ahead to Baren seeing the numerous positive reviews. We walked a distance in the rain anticipating a wonderful time with authentic Swiss fondue, just like many reviewers. The more senior waitress doesn't seem happy to have... More

Had a Fondue here with our US friends. They loved it, as a Swiss citizen you know that they could do better on the Fondue itself. Pretty house and cosy. The service was nice.

We had the meat and turkey fondue with the different sauces. It was excellent, though a bit on the pricey side, considering you cook it yourself! This place is frequented by locals and has great ambiance for the Swiss feel!

I rarely give 5 stars but this was very close. Amazingly charming restaurant with a very traditional Swiss feel. The horse steak was perfectly cooked. In addition the cheese fondu was delicious. Don't miss this restaurant for dinner if you are in Interlaken.

We ate at this restaurant twice during a recent trip to Interlaken and it was very good both times. We had mixed salads followed by cheese fondue one night and both were excellent, the mixed salads especially so. I had the meatloaf special the second time and found it very good (unlike a previous reviewer). As previous reviewers have noted,... More
