“The View is the Key. The Food is Just an Added Bonus.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Even if the food was sub-par this would be a destination restaurant because of the breathtaking view of the north face of the Eiger from the terrace. But fortunately, the food is also very good. I had goulash soup which was not remarkable, but my wife had sausage with onion sauce and rosti, a very common menu item in Switzerland. The sausage was excellent and the rosti (basically glorified hash browns) was the best we tasted in the country. The prices were reasonable, in light of the view, and the service was fine. What more could one want for lunch?

“Just look at where it is.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

The fact that the food is very good is a bonus. We all had the Rosti and beer. It just can't get better then that view, very good food, kind, efficient and caring wait staff. This was heaven with good food. We stopped on the train ride down from the Jungfrau. Just an another happy day in heaven!

“Spectacular view, good service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Jaw-dropping views from the patio of this restaurant a few steps from train station. Can do self-service, or we chose table service. Very good Swiss menu including fondue and other favorites. Service was very friendly and efficient even at height of lunchtime crunch. Highly recommend.

“Your best dining option in Kleine Scheidegg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

There are several places to grab a bite when in Kleine Scheidegg.  Your best bet is to skip the one attached to the railway station - it's way too crowded and doesn't offer the best of views - and instead head up the slope past the trail leading down to Grindelwald and choose from one of the three perched on the hill. Our choice was the Eiger Nordwand and we weren't disappointed. The expansive balcony offers a stunning view not only of the Jungfrau and Eiger wall but also down to Grindelwald.  The food comes in good sized portions, more than enough to fortify you for a strenuous hike. I would go for the "real rosti", a fabulous Swiss potato dish with onions and bacon diced inside and topped with thin piece of melted cheese and a fried egg.  Absolutely delicious!  My son went with the schnitzel sandwich and he gave it a two thumbs up.  The service was quick and friendly and the prices in line with what you would expect atop the mountain.

“Fondue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

I love the fondue Eigernordwand. Perfect.
All the other dishes were also very nice. They try to do it a bit special and that's great.
Next year again!
