Being that I am of Swiss heritage, I was thrilled to find a Swiss Restaurant in Portland while on a recent vacation. I have been to Switzerland a couple of times and am very familiar with Swiss cuisine. This restaurant did not disappoint! I wrote to them ahead of my visit because it's always great to connect with people who... More

This is a fantastic little restaurant, with just six tables and two servers. Andrew did an incredible job of serving, and the food was outstanding and great tasting. I was very impressed and give this little gem my highest recommendation...

This was our second visit to Swiss Hibiscus and we went for a late Saturday lunch with our son and daughter-in-law. I started with the cole slaw, which was acceptable, but not special. However, the wiener schnitzel and goulash were outstanding, much better than the versions typically served at German restaurants in the states. Our son had the duck, which... More

Couldn't decide on a place to have lunch - so many choices in this neighborhood. Once we read the menu on the window and saw gravlax and snails, we knew that we were at the right place. Such friendliness and efficiency. Best ever gravlax. Haven't had escargo in such a long time and this was a treat. Clean but small.... More

On a recent getaway to Portland 4 of us (including my 2 young grandchildren) had dinner here. The food was delicious, the service excellent and an overall inviting atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.

we love the food here. We lived in Germany for 5 years and love schnitzel, potato salad, rosti, etc.Swiss Hibiscus does an excellent job with all of these dishes. It is the best European food we have found in Portland.

I decided to have a 5 meal course here. Good reviews, small place (please do reserve a table before come) and I love European food (but English, of course). They offered me fresh baked crunchy bread and two kinds of spicy sauces as a courtesy. Great start: slices were yummy. Then I had the the Swiss rosti topped with raclete... More

What a fun and tasty treat this was to find as we had a day to fiddle around in Portland. We were checking out Portlandia sites and needed a bite to eat. We happened upon this place during a time when the owner's parents were visiting from Hawaii and there were special items on the menu. If only we had... More

The owners ran the place, they were very accommodating. The food was not so good though. :( Their snitzels were not as crisp, their apple strudel was more like pie crust base.
