I have to go with the majority on this. The wait service was very professional. Courteous, efficient, timely and knowledgable. The setting was gorgeous outside with a pink sunset on the alps behind. I requested a change in seating because of wafting cigarette smoke at an outside table, and the change to an inside table was handled promptly and with... More

My husband and I stayed two weeks at the lovely Hotel Blumenthal. We had three fabulous dinners at La Grotte! Can't wait to go back to Murren and eat there again!

We wandered in here after a day of hiking and realized we were probably under-dressed for the establishment. We didn't have a reservation, so we went to leave, only to have a waiter run after us and tell us they would fit us in. So they made another couple move and gave us their seats (super awkward). Our table with... More

The food here was excellent. We ate sausage rosti, lasagna, and spaghetti and all enjoyed our meals. The service, though, was incredibly rushed even though it wasn't very busy. However, since the food was so good, it was worth eating here.

We went here after a family member recommended it. It was a busy evening as we went on the Swiss holiday, Augustli, but we had a great, cozy table for seven and a waiter who handled a slew of orders deftly and without error. I treated myself to their holiday menu which was an exceptional value and included a succulent... More

Being vegetarian, we weren't sure if the restaurants in smaller towns had enough choices, but this one did and was very willing to accommodate. Service was as expected - not great but decent. Wine was wonderful after a long day of exploration. Many Italian, French and other fusion cuisine choices to be had - absolutely delicious. Prices are as expected... More

My brother and I stay at the Hotel Blumental and eat at the restaurant here. I enjoy their wide variety of dishes, was partial to the bratwurst and potatoes (rosti). They have pasta, meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. Loved their mixed salad and desserts. Had the apple fritters, very good. Rustic atmosphere.

This was our fifth visit to Murren and Restaurant "La Grotte" in five years. We think it's the best food and service in Switzerland. The decor is spectacular. The restaurant is family owned and operated for decades. The owner has always been there to greet us when we enter. This year we shared family style Steak Fondue. Generous portions and... More
