A part from one detail, this is an excellent place to eat.

From the moment we went in to book a table till the moment we left the place the day after we felt truly welcome in this restaurant. Staff is nice, smiling, welcoming, professional, knowledgeable and at least our waiter had a good sense of humour (it helps when you serve four gay men...) The... read more

We were staying at the hotel and ate dinner 'in' three times during our stay. On all three occasions the food was excellent, the surroundings were nice and the service within the restaurant was simply OK. Surroundings - the restaurant is in a nicely furnished room, lots of good class woodwork, not the usual rustic stuff; tables reasonably well apart... More

From the moment we walked in we were welcomed with a huge smile from the hostess who found us a lovely table for our family of 6 including 4 kids. We loved the charming swiss ambiance with candle lit tables and lots of character. It had a German flair to it. The food, service and atmosphere were all excellent. We... More

We had dinner at the Spannort restaurant twice on this trip to Engelberg. The chateaubriand is reason alone to travel there. The service is sometimes a little slow when you've been skiing all day and you're hungry, but the food quality is worth the wait. Our meals at Spannort are always one of the highlights of our trip and we... More

Best main meal of Kalbs leber (calves liver) we've ever had, absolutely perfectly cooked. However waiter charged us 5 Swiss francs for some tap water so not impressed with that!

Not only is this a beautiful dining room, but the service and delicious food are a standout. This is the first time ever that we have had every single item on an extensive menu translated from German to English by the charming hostess, It set the tone for what was a beautifully presented meal. Both waitstaff made the rounds and... More

After a long day on Mt Titlis my wife and I walked around central Engelberg hunting for a place to eat. We walked by the Spannort and saw their restaurant and figured we should try it since the menu looked good. When we walked in the setting was outstanding and the overall setting of the place had a comfortable and... More

On a recent trip to Engelberg, CH I stopped for an evening meal at the Spannort. Having eaten at several restaurants there in town, we thought to give the Spannort a try. The room was traditionally decorated and had a warm feel to it. The manager on duty Martin Pfiffner made sure we were all seated comfortably and were given... More

Stayed at the hotel and booked here for one night. We were 4 and we were well taken care of. We all ordered starters and mains. Some of the dishes were just fantastic, like the lamb that I had and also the tuna main course. Onion soup were nothing special we found, so the quality differs a bit. The atmosphere... More
