Very good dinner, especially the lamb

We had a very good meal here. We had the lamb which was done very nicely. The rosti side dish was good as well, although the portions were a little lacking, especially given the large amounts served at other restaurants. My daughter's pesto was also good, but pretty standard fare. Altogether, it... read more

The food was tasty and the waiter was polite, but I think he needed an extra person to help him as we had to wait an awfully long time for our bill after asking for it. Like every restaurant in murren the prices are steep.

Quaint restaurant with cowbells hanging from the ceiling. Pesto pasta dish was fresh and tasty. The grilled pork chop with mushroom gravy and rosti were yummy! The 4th generation owner gave us some history of this wonderful restaurant.

I have been visiting Murren several times since 2012 and had tried 6 restaurants in Murren. This restaurant might not the most cheapest and does not have a great mountains view. But you seek for a nice meal after a day hiking or sightseeing. This is a best place you should choose.

We enjoyed a lovely dinner and service at La Gotte. Menu was reasonably priced by Murren standards. Lamb was one of the best prepared I have had. Chicken with cranberry was very nice. Finished with superb blackberry crepe and chocolate mousse. Service was top notch. It was a lovely evening out on the patio enjoying the amazing mountain views.

The moment you walk into La Grotte you get a nice feeling! The restaurant is so warm and homely with many traditional Swiss decorations. The servers all paid excellent attention to us and the food was fantastic. Would certainly recommend this restaurant!

We had dinner there while staying in Murren based on the good reviews. My son wanted fondue. It had to be for two people only. Hence my husband had to order the same, the meat fondue. A big plate of raw meat along with many small plates of canned food and fruits. The soup to cook the meat was tasteless.... More

Ate there the first night in Murren because I was staying in the hotel; never had dinner anywhere else for over a week because it was so good. Menu changes nightly and deciding what to eat is difficult. Service is exquisite: five star level like the food, but also personal and amiable if you want. The hotel is just as... More

We stayed in their chalet for a week and had our breakfast and dinners there daily. Each meal was excellent and the service was wonderful. We didn't have a bad meal the entire stay. Highly recommend if visiting Murren.
