I must say that this is one of the best places I have ever been, the food is just so delicious, the live music and the environment make this place a "must go" in your list of restaurants, especially if you enjoy a nice glass of wine with your steak in a cold night. I said it when I was... More

Felt a little lonely there. also it's a little bit... More

We thought this place would be nice, and it was until the fondue began to catch on fire, the servers put it out and we repeated the process two more times. With the high heat, the sauce broke and was pretty disgusting. This was all for $45.

I came here for the cheese fondue and was initially disappointed that they didn't have it, but it was actually for the best as we ordered the meat fondue that requires two people. Not sure why it requires a minimum of 2 as you could easily half it for 1, but nonetheless it was delicious! You basically have the raw... More

...we have at least one meal here. The rosti are to die for. Try one and ask for the salami to be put in it instead of the sausage. Of course the only way end the meal is with the wonderful chocolate fondue.

It is an excellent place. Location is great, service is high class, food really good. The Rosti we had, as far as we can say as Swiss, was good but it was not that big and the load of cheese (that was real cheese!!) was too big. But it depends from where the in Switzerland the owner is and what... More

Over the course of 3 days, the dinner at Swiss Bistro was definitely the best meal. I had tomato and basil soup with a side portion of bread, and I didn't know a simple tomato soup could be so tasty. My boyfriend loved his too. The service was good, was a bit noisy with all the people they had, but... More

Great menu and food. Very kind staff, the owner came to our table and invited us to visit again for live music the next night. Excellent music and even had a guitar for visitors to play.

Out of 5 days in banos we ate twice here, the food is excellent, the first time service little slow but the second time was perfect. its a must to have a table outside on the second floor. the fondue was of excellent quality as the side orders.totally recommended to go with family and friends. the owner very helpful.
