“Nice lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We walked through the town of Murren trying to decide where to have lunch. Settled on the Edelweiss because they had items our kids recognized and thought sounded good. They have a beautiful patio area with gorgeous views of the mountains and valley, but it had become super windy and our server advised us to choose a table indoors. Several of the outdoor diners had to move inside. We decided on a pizza, a pasta, and a rosti. The rosti was the best one we had on the trip. It had ham and an egg on top. Very tasty! All of the food was good and the dessert homemade and tasty. Service was awkward. It appeared that our server left the premesis midway through our meal. Eventually, the other server took over our table. Luckily, we were in no hurry, as it was cold, wet, and windy outside. The paper placemats had a great colored map of the area on them. We had a fun time pointing out all of the areas we had hiked. The Murren restaurant scene is a bit strange. If you are looking for a place with basic, recognizable food, and don't mind paying inflated hotel prices, this is a good choice.

“Fantastic location - good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

The views from this restaurant are stunning. The food is good - a little on the pricey side I suppose but welcome to Switzerland. The service was very good and quick. The best tables/views are outside (grab a sheepskin to put on your chair - makes it way more comfy and warm). I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Murren (and by the way, Murren is fantastic!).

“Nice local restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

We had a nice, Quiet dinner overlooking the mountains. The food was Very good food and we had a friendly, efficient waitress. After a long morning walk and rainy afternoon, we were happy to relax and take in the views. We were staying at the hotel and thought we would give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised that it was so good. We even lingered over tasty, but rich, desserts. I believe they also serve lunch, as well. There is also outside seating with tremendous views. I would recommend to Give it a try when visiting in Murren.

“Wonderful food, great people. Mind blowing patio view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

Had Gampfeffer (chamois) Off of their "Wild" menu. ive never had it before. Ireally enjoyed it. Everything was fantastic. Savory, a little gaminess to let you know youre not eating simple steak, but better than my deer venison experiences. I would eat it again.

Nothing negative to say. Well, the restaurant was quiet, but every place we've eaten at in Mürren seems to need some music playing to liven things up.

The patio has mind blowing views.
