We were a group of six persons (some of us Swiss) going for dinner. While checking out the menu the waitress (blond lady) wanted to take note and we kindly asked her to give us a couple of minutes more. When she came back for the second time she said either we order now or we can leave. We didn't... More

We had a wonderful Sunday lunch here in January 2014 at the recommendation of the owner of our B&B Chalet Gafri. It is within walking distance of both the main street of Interlaken, and the Ost train station. The interior is typical Swiss and a great opportunity for those who want experience an authentic local restaurant that is beautifully decorated... More

The place is nice and cosy, the food is good, but the service is not that friendly. The menu should say that you are not allowed to order one meat fondue, but it doesn't and make you feel disappointed when you figure that out.

We were travelling around Switzerland by train and ended up with a night in Interlaken before heading to the Jungfrau the next morning. Having been in Switzerland for four days without a fondue we decided it was time to rectify that. A quick look through the Interlaken guide in the hotel room, a check on TripAdvisor and we were booking... More

Laterne was a great, casual place for fondue! Much better than the tourist-y places down in town. It was recommended by a friend and we loved it. You can expect to pay $15-25 a person, which is true to the typical expense of the Interlaken area. We LOVED the fondue, we got two pots to split between 2 people and... More

Our first visit to Laterne was back in February 2008, and we loved it. We had a friendly waitress, and the food was great. We came back this year but unfortunately were sorely disappointed by the service. We sat in the area on the right side of the entrance. Our waitress was inattentive and plain rude, ignoring us several times... More

Found the restaurant from Tripadvisor, we wanted something off the main drag in Interlaken. We loved the place. The place was warm and cosi and a mix of tourist and locals. We had the fondue and the Rosti plus a couple of beers. It's was the perfect little stop! The owner ( I believe) was also serving folks. She entertained... More

After a short walk from the east train station we found this restaurant. The place was empty and we were able to find a table for 10. The owner was very nice and the place was child friendly. The food was ok but nothing special. Too many items were on the menu. They should stick to the Swiss cuisine Also... More

We wanted to try a meat fondue- this place was recommended to us by locals. The meat fondue in itself was a great experience, tasty meat & endless accompanying mini dishes & two choices for potato dishes (Rosti is the best in my opinion!) (Yes it's more on the expensive side, but this is Switzerland, so that's standard.) Good atmosphere,... More
