This is the restaurant of the Hotel Blumental. Generally quite good food, and the half-board option at the hotel is a good value. Waiters are wonderful.

Great Swiss-style cheese fondue. Lamb and bratwurst served with the extra gravy the chef prepared--delicious!

Order the "Tages Menu" and you won't be disappointed. It includes a dinner salad of local produce. Every meal was cooked to perfection and tasted so good. Most of the main dishes came with some type of sauce and the sauces were not over powering. Each meal consisted of meat, veggies and starch. So good.

Tried every potato listed on the menu....and they were all delicious...didn't actually mean to order all that and after quizzical looks from the waiter...I finally understood why. Nice romantic dinner, was definitely the nicest restaurant we ate in Murren. Perfect for my birthday dinner.

We ordered some soup and spaghetti, however, our waiter forgot about the soup and brought the main course straight away. We weren't disappointed with the food! It was brilliantly done, tasty and properly cooked!

Terrible service yesterday at dinner Heavily understaffed. We were seated and made to wait for 10 minutes before he brought the menu. He then made a comment about management After waiting 10 to 15 minutes for someone to take the order we gave up and left Must say really unprofessional

My wife and I had a superb dinner (on my birthday) at Restaurant La Grotte in the Hotel Blumental in Murren. We shared a "mixed salad" as an appetizer, which was very good, and then we each had a delicious fresh fish dish. The fish was accompanied by a healthy portion of veggies that were also exceptional. The dining room... More

We are not huge fans of Swiss cuisine in general and finding a decent dinner place especially in a small village like Murren can sometimes be challenging. Thanks to La Grotte, we didn't have to worry about the food. It was excellent. The menu has some kind of "Italian twist" = not just the basic Swiss stuff. We ate there... More

The atmosphere is cozy with a staff that obviously cares deeply about customer service. There were 4 other tables near us and we could hear a resounding emphasis on the quality of the food And service! We plan to eat here a second time during our stay to try some additional items.

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.
