We came here based on positive reviews, and we weren't disappointed! We opted to sit outside, which I would recommend.

We have been to Switzerland, and enjoyed the food served by numerous Swiss restaurants. Sad to comment, that this restaurant hardly represents the best in Swiss cuisine. Most of the dishes are deep-fried breaded pork or chicken with a very a heavy gravy on top. In all candor, nothing exciting, nor worth returning for the experience.

I must say, for this place to be rated #1 on trip advisor it did not meet my expectations. The food was average at best. The restaurant is very small with only 7 tables inside and just 4 more outside. The servers are very welcoming and kind. However, I wouldn't eat here again, and I think there are better options...

The food and service were perfection. If you are a local and have not been to this restaurant, shame on you.

We were in Portland for vacation and visiting the kids. They had been to Swiss Hibiscus a few times before and highly recommended it. We stopped in on a weeknight and it was fairly quiet but understand that they are very busy on weekends. The excellent reviews are well deserved, the food was fabulous. I had the Emince Zurichoise ZURICHOISE,... More

This is a small locally owned restaurant that makes traditional Swiss meals. Seating space is limited so be sure to allow time in case they are busy. Daily specials offered. We had four different meals and all were outstanding. I had the goulash with spatzle. Tender meat, rich smooth sauce and finally someone who can prepare spatzle correctly. Yea! We... More

Small, family owned restaurant with extremely tasty food and great service! Our waiter recommended some specialties and I really appreciate that. I recommend you to call them and make a reservation because they are really small and you may need to stay in line otherwise. Best part of my Portland experience!

I drove in to town from Jackson Hole, WY to visit my very special aunt for Mother's Day. I made a reservation the day before for Mother's Day Brunch. Tammy answered the phone and was so thrilled to hear that I was bringing my special aunt. She knew her name and made a fuss over me bringing her there for... More

Our family has been to Swiss Hibiscus many times. We are warmly greeted and seated promptly. This last visit was particularly memorable in that the specials were even better than on prior visits. The wine list is limited but very good. The beer menu is fun and complete. The dinner menu is full of delicious and authentic Swiss specialities. Schnitzel,... More
