By far the best restaurant in Grindelwald...

...and believe me, I know what I'm talking about. I've been coming here for 13 years and tried them all. Dominik makes an unbelievable pizza, and nothing else. Most Italian pizza chefs faint in comparison. His wine list is extensive, with lots of great but still affordable wines. Sonja is a... read more

Getting a table here is the hardest thing as the restaurant is popular but limited for space. The pizza was superb and easily the best we had during our stay in the the region. The atmosphere is great and encouraged by the friendly staff. We were possibly unlucky with the owners wine recommendation. We found the recommended Swiss Red too... More

No reservations. No 3 persons on a table for 4. Waitinglist when the room has filled up - a joke. Still looks good from the outside though...

Have eaten here on several occasions. There is a wide variety of pizzas to choose from and a choice of salads or cheese if you don't fancy a pizza. The restaurant is small and cosy. Downsides. 1. You cannot book so may have a long wait unless you want to eat at opening time 4pm. 2. To visit the toilet... More

Super atmosphere, great food and lovely friendly staff, we all had pizza and they made mine with no cheese as I don't eat dairy products. The salads looked lovely too although none of us ordered one. It did get very busy quite early so I would advise going early and putting your name on the waiting list if it's full... More

I grew up in Grindelwald and am often there to chill. I know Dominik and Sonja since approx 20 years now and what the made out of this little garage is a fantastic, cozy and stylish place. You are not supposed to go there to rush just "for a pizza", the place and atmosphere is great so the massive wine... More

Cosy log cabin type ambience, nicely busy and freshly made good choice of pizzas. Staff/Owners were friendly and accommodating. We wanted to share two different types so the staff made one large pizza consisting of the two different halves split into portions, which was really helpful. Choice of beers and wine. Cost was reasonable.

We arrived when only 3 other tables were occupied. It took over 45 minutes to get our pizza once we ordered it. The waitress was very chatty and we thought we had ordered a simple pizza but when my husband asked for anchovies on his side of the pizza, the price escalated to 30 CHF for just the pizza with...

First time in Grindelwald with family. We heard about this place and that you need to be early to get a table - they DON'T take reservations. The warmth and coziness of the restaurant is matched by the owner and staff. Great atmosphere and great pizza! Crunchy pizza bodem and fresh toppings. It takes a while, but you can litterly... More

We went to Onkel Tom's at the recommendation of another pizza place. The people who recommended Onkel Tom's are located to the right of the miniature golf place and Onkel Tom's is a couple of blocks to the left. Both are good. But they were right about Onkel Tom's--they were spectacular. OTH does NOT do takeaway but they most certainly... More
