My boyfriend and I wanted to eat and drink something there but one of the staff treated us very disrespectfully, so we were leaving the restaurant without an order. I've never been treated so disrespectfully in a restaurant before...
We have been going to Wengen for over 15 years and the main restaurant at the Schonegg is always on the list of places where we will go for at least one dinner and probably a couple of lunches if we're in the village and...not skiing. In the main restaurant the food quality is always excellent, with a good wine list and good service. The menu offers a rare opportunity to have fine dining Swiss food and they do it well. My only caveat would be that there are very few light options so make sure you have an appetite when you go!More
Hotel Schonegg is a wonderful hotel to use when you get to Wengen.
Its located spitting distance from the train station.
The people working here are very helpful and friendly.
Just outside is a supermarket for the stuff the kids need !
The food was so good I ate dinner here 6 nights in a row! I have an MSG allergy (Geschmacksverstärker) which can be challenging in Switzerland with the high use of Maggi and Knorr prepared sauces and packaged flavoring. The Schönegg cooks only from scratch...with high quality fresh herbs and spices and the quality of meat and fish was excellent. Waitstaff were knowledgable, friendly and attentive. Their wine recommendations were perfect. If the weather is good, try eating on the gorgeous terrace. Spectacular views.More
After eating at the restaurant our first night, we just had to return the next evening. Kurt, the host, was so knowledgeable, warm and welcoming. He made our meal just the more magical. The food was fantastic and fresh. Our stay at the hotel was...lovely as well. The rooms were very traditional Swiss and our view of the town and mountains were beautiful. The staff was very polite and helpful. Thank you for making the Bernese Oberland area unforgettable!!More
Hotel Schonegg was just incredible. If you’re visiting Wengen then you can’t beat the location, rooms, service or food. The view is by far the best in Wengen! We opted for half board (dinner included) for one night only since we didn’t know what to...expect, but our first night’s dinner quickly convinced us to add dinner to some of our other nights as well. Being foodies, we tried several restaurants in Wengen, and while they were great (Da Sina for pizza!), nothing beat the quality and service of Schonegg’s restaurant. If you’re a fan of fine dining and wine tasting, then this is it. During our last night Kurt, the manager on site, was just delightful his service and attention to detail was the best. Two points: I’ll be sad to leave tomorrow and it’s rare that I review a place before I’ve even checked out!
We initially booked a smaller room since it was all that was available. When the larger junior suite opened up we opted to book it for rest of our stay. Couldn’t have made a better choice. The junior suite was amazing. Beautiful view and awesome bathroom. Having said that though, the smaller room was just exquisite and I would’ve been just as happy there. The balcony with flowers was just beautiful in the smaller room.
We travel a lot and this is one of the few places that we would definitely want to visit again just to relive the views, food and service. Beautiful!More
We booked the restaurant to celebrate our anniversary 'in style', unfortunately our experience started off on entirely the wrong foot when we arrived and the waitress had no clue about our online reservation. Oh dear.
I had to prove my credentials by showing her the...confirmation email from earlier that day.
I booked the restaurant because it was listed as the number 3 best place to eat in Wengen. On our visit, this overall rating was very much better than our experience I am sorry to say.
The waiting staff seemed badly inexperienced, unable to offer us anything like the excellent level of service referred to in other reviews that prompted us to eat there. Again, this was a huge disappointment, especially when you consider the price you are paying for their food.
The starters were actually pretty good, if somewhat expensive for what arrived on the table but the main course was a catastrophic disappointment.
The entrecote steak was akin to a thinly sliced bit of pre-packed £4 ribeye beef from Aldi and nothing like what I was expecting for €52. The few bits of veg and sauce was very nice but the steak was pathetic in the extreme.
I would have complained but I would have received a beating from my wife and I genuinely think the clueless waiting staff would have had no idea about what to do. I decided to restrict my feedback to 'it was ok' when asked if I enjoyed my meal. To any normal waiter thus should be a red flag, but not here. Oh well. I guess they have a steady stream of customers who will scoff whatever is served to them without murmuring.
I was invited to have a desert and I was going to order a creme brulee (at €14) but after being ignored on several occasions by all staff for 20 minutes in a 75% empty restaurant we elected to vote with our feet.
Maybe we just had a bad experience? Probably.
But at €190 for two, I feel badly ripped off. Perhaps I shouldn't trust TripAdvisor reviews so easily? Every rule has an exception doesn't it.
For me, I could eat at the Eiger Restaurant three times for what I paid here and I would be happy and have a very full tummy.
Avoid the 1903 restaurant at The Schoenegg Hotel.....unless you have more money than sense (or taste).
We were impressed with how friendly our waitress was and she had a good sense of humor. We also had two visits from who I presume was the owner asking saying to enjoy our food. They provided us an English menu and treated our teens...with respect.
This was one of our favorite restaurants during our visit to Wengen and just a five minute walk from the train station.More
This restaurant was recommended to us from a local, and it was wonderful. We had lunch on the Terrace overlooking the gorgeous alp beauty. Service was great, food was wonderful, especially the chicken, potatoes, zucchini special that includes wine, coffee for 25 Swiss francs. After...you get off the train at the station, just walk about a block down the Main Street and you will see the Schonegg. Also you might walk over to the beautiful chapel next door. The view from there is incredible, all the way to the bottom of the Lauterbrunnen Valley!More
