We enjoyed our evening at Laterne. Those who did not want to try "swiss cuisine" were able to order hamburgers and pasta. Those that did want to try "authentic swiss cuisine were not disappointed. The Atmosphere was great and we walked from the Grand Lindner hotel It was a nice stroll through a neighborhood. All in all a great experience.

Simple decoration with not much taste. Neither were the food! Just plain ordinary street food. Does not worth the detour at all. Plastic outdoor chairs and table clothes kills the appetite even before food arrives.

Restaurant Laterne is off the beaten path in Interlaken but well worth the ten minute walk from the main street. It is very German in style, with very friendly service and excellent food freshly prepared. While the menu is extensive we focussed on rosti which was deliciously prepared and came with a special butter sauce. We were there on a... More

We arrived late afternoon and all restaurants had been booked. Our hotel manager booked this one for us. The food was some of the best I have eaten. Staff were very helpful. Recommend trying the Swiss menu - the chicken roschti with herb butter was so delicious!! I have 4 children and they all enjoyed their meals & the atmosphere

This place was recommended by our hotel and it was very nice. Great food and very attentive wait staff. Definitely recommend although it was a little off the beaten path. The tomato soup was amazing!

Went there on business with quite a large party which is never really fair on any restaurant but while the cheese fondue was delicious the meat for the chinoise was still frozen in parts when makes you doubt the freshness of everything else which is probably unfair as it might have just come from a very cold fridge. The ambience... More

Delicious food--so fresh and tasty, and with that authentic home-cooked feel. It was hunting season and they had a great game menu. The venison was amazing. Nice to get a bit out of town and the crowded tourist areas. I don't agree with previous comments about the owner at all. It felt like she maybe just wasn't very comfortable with... More

We went here last night for our first dinner in Interlaken. After we were seated, we asked the waitress to help us with the menu. She said, "it's in English" and walked away. Ten minutes later we left. Not only did she never return to take our order, she wouldn't even look at us. I was quite disappointed, as I... More

The food was a little above average. The service was horribly bad, and the staff was unfriendly. We tried calling the waitress several times yet she ignored us. We ordered our food with no whine and pork, yet they didn't take our words. And they don't speak English. The owner herself takes the orders and serves, and she's the one... More

Nice and beautiful place. That was all. The owner comes and serves you in a rush. I ordered two fondues, one of cheese and one of beef. I asked the owner what she thought would be the best, and she appointed the second on the menu. I than trusted and ordered that one. The beef one, I was told, they... More
