We wanted traditional Swiss food,Restaurant Baren was recommended by a local.It had a lovely atmosphere. The staff were very welcoming. My husband and I had the cheese and mushroom fondue. It was lovely. It was great eating where local people where eating.

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!

We were recommended to come here by our hotel as it was a typical Swiss restaurant. We ordered, and drinks took a while to come. I did notice that the owner/manager served all the locals promptly, and then sat down and smoked and chatted with them. They seem to have some disdain to tourists, this has been noted in previous...

Adorable setting, but thoroughly average food. I had a simple Rosti with vegetables, but it was easy to tell that the vegetables were from a frozen-food bag. Service was adequate. The only factor between a 2- and a 3-star rating was the setting.

Charming place just down the street from Beausite hotel. Ordered mushroom fondue and a local beer. Waitress was very nice and recognized us a few days later walking

Very attentive staff. Tasty food and good size portions. Lunch was worth it !! Restaurant is not in a region so close to the tourist center and is frequented by locals, which is always a good thing.
