We visited this restaurant even though we hadn't made a reservation. The hostess managed to squeeze us in. The food was delicious, a lot of lamb on the menu, and judging by the number of guests, very popular. I think it was the owner who came round and personally greeted all guests - a nice touch. Menu very reasonable, much... More

We arrived with a reservation but a mistake had been made and our rep hadn't changed the date. The efficient hostess sorted us out with the last available table. 3 adults and 2 kids. Kids had lovely schnitzel and all the adults have varieties of the speciality - chargrilled lamb. It is delicious. Very efficient good service and faultless food.... More

Set in the downstairs area of the hotel this is one restaurant that offers more than great fare and service. We were made to feel welcome and shared the evening with many locals, and fellow travelers....plus a couple of huskies......yes dogs are welcome and were well behaved. It was delightful to watch a honeymooning couple be give the romantic treatment... More

For our last night's stay at the hotel Julen we went to the Schefenstube Restaurant, located at the lower level of the hotel. Truly wonderful food and a great experience overall - after a Raclette appetizer I had the rack of lamb - which is accompanied by several vegetable choices (loved the Chinese Bok Choi) and is served in two...

I feel like I'm hard to impress but this restaurant did it. We had the medium rare lamb entrecote, which was amazing. Cooked perfectly and served with fairly simple but delicious spinach and potato sides, the quality of the meat was evident. My daughter (7) opted for the lamb burger instead of anything on the kids' menu and was well... More

A very cozy restaurant in the lower level of the "Romantik Hotel Julen". Many lamb and other traditional dishes and great service and attention from the staff. Our server was a very sweet girl named Tanya (or Tania) who introduced us to Raclette and a few other traditional Swiss treats... and if she remembers us, Yes, we did get to... More

Selection of high-quality local food prepared imaginatively, in a cozy, rustic cellar and with a decent Swiss wine collection. Top end prices, competent service, open all year round. Book ahead for a special evening. If fully booked you can try the hotel restaurant a floor higher - also good. The same family owns the pub and disco opposite for the... More

Food was spectacular. I honestly did not expect such tasty food in a touristy city, but the apple salad was divine. Fondue was good as well. Staff are pleasant, but once it gets busy the service gets understandably slower since they only have two wait staff. I would definitely recommend this place!

As we walked to the door and peeked through the window (number of patrons is usually a good sign). The restaurant looked empty! A couple walked out and we asked how good it was and they raved about it! So we went in to find all the clients at the other end of the restaurant, well away from the entrance.... More
