We wanted fishes and none German food, this place did not disappoint. The dishes were Italian or French in styles and cooked to perfection. Both Pike and Salmon were grilled and seasoned very well. Our appetizer and dessert were also first class.

We stayed at Hotel Blumental & tried the restaurant one evening for dinner. Service is top-notch & the food was truly impressive. This is quite a nice restaurant for such a small town, & you should not visit Murren without having dinner here at least once!

It had a warm atmosphere in a stone walled cozy room. The waiters were happy in their work, eager to please, and responsive to any request. The food was excellent. Best meal in Murren.

We visited Murren in mid October when it was a near ghost town (shoulder season). Many of the hotel restaurants were still open, but pretty empty. Yet every night this restaurant was full. We ate there 2 of the 3 nights and it was incredible. Prices were good (for the expensive area), service was great and the food was wonderful!... More

After long days of hiking and activities, this restaurant was a sigh of relief for delicious food! Noticed it was recommended by Rick Steves so we figured we would give it a try. First day had a basic salad and fresh pumpkin soup which were both very good. We were impressed with their menu and our stomachs were hungrier the... More

We were real lucky to find the La Grotte Restaurant on our 1st night because it was so good we had a chance to come back again! The filet steak (one of the best I've ever had) and chicken with salad was fantastic, and then I tried the veal which was very good. The waiters and host were friendly and... More

Our family ate at La Grotte our last night in Murren. I wish we had found it sooner! They were full inside but we were able to eat outside and it was perfect. The service was wonderful. My children loved the food. We started with a fondue, which we hadn't had before, and they made it in a manner that... More

My wife and I stopped for a light evening meal and a beer before heading back to the Hotel, and the outside dining area and the mountain view were perfect. The food was great and the service was excellent.

After reading all the great reviews on Trip Advisor our expectations were very high. Unfortunately it was a chilly evening so we dined inside where we found the service, wine choices and our meals just OK. Rick Steves guide recommends this restaurant for its food, ambiance and price. Perhaps it was an off night or perhaps Mr. Steves need to... More

We ate here one evening to take a break from our half board meals at our own hotel. We loved it. The food was simply delicious. The service was great, and the actual dining room is very pretty. I had Salmon with a dill and Pernod sauce. My partner had the lamb. For dessert I had chocolate mousse, and he... More
