My husband and I just stopped by La Grotte tonight and were thrilled with the service and food we had here. We both had the daily special and it was prefect. Everything from the salad dressing to the vegetables were prepared with care. We were continuously checked on by several waiters and they even helped us with some night time... More

We were staying at the Hotel Blumental while in Murren and decided to eat at the hotel restaurant our first night in Murren. We returned on our last night as well, and those two meals were our best meals in Murren! Most of the restaurants in Murren have similar prices (Switzerland in general is expensive), but this was a great... More

This restaurant came highly recommended as the best restaurant in Murren and it exceeded our expectations. We felt a little underdressed because one of our suitcases didn't arrive on time, but the service was still impeccable. They do a lot of table-side service, which makes for a more European and special experience. What really stands out, though, is the quality... More

Outstanding food, friendly service, spectacular location. Especially pleasant and quiet outdoor summer dining after 8pm when family groups have departed.

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 was a fine experience.

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.
