“Easily the best place in town!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

This place is my wife and I's favourite restaurant in Grindelwald. We've lived here for three years and this is the place we always go back to, we even had our wedding party here and would heartily recommend it to anyone visiting Grindelwald. The ambiance and atmosphere is traditional Swiss and cosy in a little wooden chalet and the couple who run the place, Dominik and Sonja and two of the nicest people in Grindelwald, always welcoming, warm and very friendly (regardless of how busy the place becomes). From day one of opening (now over 15years ago), the little family run pizzeria was an instant hit here with the locals and tourists alike!

Make sure you ask Dominik, the pizza chef, about his dream pizzas... some of his creations were literally inspired from his dreams :-), and you definitely won't leave disappointed... his pizzas are really tasty, you couldn't feel in a more homely restaurant, the prices are very fair and the homemade deserts are incredible! Writing this now, makes me want to go there right now... maybe pizza for tea... the one downside... wednesday is their well deserved family day off... maybe tomorrow :-)

Enjoy...

“Excellent Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We were in Grindelwald four nights and ate here twice. That's how much we liked Onkel Tom's. The food is great (thin crust pizza with fresh ingredients), the owners are very friendly (even gave us advice on which trails to take on different days) and the atmosphere is homey and welcoming. If you're not sure which Swiss wine you'd like to try let them pick for you. Eat inside or outside. You won't be disappointed.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Simply fantastic pizza made of fresh ingredients. My only complaint was to be charged for tap water.

“Great food and charming setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Our family had dinner here in a rainy evening. Excellent food and a charming atmosphere. The four of us had a variety of entrees and all were terrific. A husband and wife team run this place and their hard work was demonstrated in the excellent service they provided. Come early (before six) so you won't have to wait.

“Swiss Pizza?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

No, not really. But it's a pretty good version of the standard Italian variety. There's a good selection of beer and wine, although the wine prices are fairly outrageous,not unusual for Switzerland. If you stick with beer and pizza, it's a good value in a very pricey town.
