“Solid Restaurant in Prime Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

My family and I dined at this restaurant twice while on vacation in Grindelwald. Both times, we chose to sit outside in the terrace dining area, which we really enjoyed. The inside dining room was very well decorated and looked inviting. The service was quite good, but do expect to sit down for a while and enjoy your meal, as it is not a quick service type of place. We tried the cheese fondue once, which was served in traditional style, and it was very good. All the food was quite well prepared, but the standout was the Veal Scallopini, which was excellent. They also have a decent salad bar and good desserts, with a large variety of ice cream dishes available. Overall, this restaurant is a good choice and has a great location near the rail station in the center of the town.

“Go for cheese fondue and Rosti”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Nice location, we tried their cheese fondue and Rosti, they are nice. You cant expect very good service here as waiters are quite busy, they were just in a hurry most of the time.

“Very good place to eat a traditional fondue”

We wanted to have a traditionale cheese fondue, and this restaurant was recommended by our hotel. We were not disappointed: served in a tradional way and in a typical wooden interior, several types of Swiss fondue are available.

“Cosy Place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

My hubby and I wanted to try cheese fondue and they claimed to be the best fondue so we decided to try. If you like cheese fondue, try it. I don't really like the wine in the cheese so I didn't enjoy much. But if you like it, I would think I would be nice. Besides, we also ordered Rosti. I like it just that it was too oily. Beer is fantastic and the service was great!

“High calorie meal but worth it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Had the most amazing Fondue and Racclette with jacket potatoes. Rounded off with caramel custard. Value for money. Excellent location next to the station. Stuffed to the brim and enjoyed the Swiss cheese.
