“A pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We went into this restaurant for lunch while on holiday in Kandersteg. We were met in a suspicious manner by a well dressed woman who seemed a little distressed that customers had come to her establishment to eat. Isn't that what the Swiss like to do the most at midday for at least two hours? Anyway we found a nicely positioned table in the window overlooking open land and an incredible view up toward Oeschinensee. Priceless!!

The waiter was just a delight. He spoke English to us and was friendly, helpful and attentive. As a vegetarian it is often difficult to find good quality vegetarian food in Switzerland. They love to serve regular dishes without meat on the plate, but after a few days something a bit more imaginative is welcome . This place has a vegetarian menu. I was spoiled for choice, it was wonderful, and a first!

The other members of our group also had good food and the desserts were also imaginative, well presented and very tasty.

So, don't let the dragon guarding the door, put you off. Brave the dragon (who we later discovered was the owner) and get inside for the friendly staff and great food.
