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

We decided very spontaneously to have a nice dinner without the kids. We were four people. The reservation of the table was already an unpleasant experience. I did not feel very welcome. Upon arriving it was clear that the restaurant was very busy. I could spot three waiting staff. We were quite awhile waiting for our coats to be hung... More

Same experience as the review by Charlie. If the group size is bigger than 4 then you're better off splitting up and getting smaller tables. Limited menu for our group of 9 and we were seated at the back of the restaurant. Two friends of ours sat in the main part of the restaurant and had a better experience and... More

We booked for 9 people. It was clear from the start that they didn't want such a large group. We agreed to split into a table of four and five. The tables were both given cut down menus and stuck in the back room. This was despite the restaurant being mostly empty. To be fair the food was good but... More

We traveled to Engelberg and stayed for 4 days. One evening we wanted to have dinner at a good place with european cuisine. We ended up at the Spannort restaurant. The service was excellent and the variety of wine offered was nice. We ordered a variety of food and were very happy with each and every one of the dishes.... More
