This restaurant was recommended for fondue, which was just ok. Also ordered fish, which was not very tasty at all. To top it off, they charge around $5 for plain tap water, in a country where drinking water gushes from fountains on every corner! And an already quite pricey restaurant charges for sharing an entree.

A nice quaint Swiss restaurant, cost but marred by people smoking (not restaurant's fault) and flies buzzing around you whilst eating! Had the wurst and rösti which was nice and cost around CHF25

We went there because we got a tip from a local, and it's a known fact that restaurants where the locals eat are the best. It is indeed true- the waitress was really nice and the food was great!

My husband and I ate here and we loved it. The atmosphere was fantastic and the food was home cooked and delicious. It was a quiet peaceful place on the other side of the river away from the hustle of the city center. The service was quick and we enjoyed our time here.

First of all, this restaurant is easy to find from the Interlaken West Train Station. You just go left down Bahnhofstrasse - cross the river and walk three blocks and it is right in front of you on the left hand side of the street. Next the inside was cozy and lovely. All wood, roses on every table, very comfortable... More

My wife and I loved the quiet outdoor seating area and the delicious Swiss food. A unique experience that I would love to repeat sometime. A little pricy, but then, so is everything else in Interlaken :)

We liked this place so much we went back twice during a 4 night stay in Interlaken. Great rosti and delicious (and tender) pork schnitzel. Good and friendly service in an establishment that's several hundred years old, acc'd to at least one of our guidebooks.

It was their sign advertising "local food only, no pizzas" that drew us in. The food wasn't bad, but compared to other restaurants in Switzerland (which there are not a lot in the first place) serving the same stuff for the same prices, this place is a notch below. Not bad, just highly underwhelming, which is what I would say... More

Our traveling group spend a wonderful dinner evening at Baren in Wengen. The service was excellent and the food was special. We had a nice selection of Switzerland wines to choose from and each course was well prepared to everyone's liking. The room is beautiful as well. A fun evening!
