We had dinner here several times during our winter holidays. Food has always been delicious. But what makes us come back every year are the hosts, Erika and Saemi. Adorable people with a good sense of humour. Our two little kids love the Chilche Pintli just as we do - is it for the big choice of toys, the chocolate... More

Erika and Sami, hosts of this restaurant prepared an amazing Swiss evening meal for us. Sami's rosti potatoes were excellent. Both took great interest in our travel plans and made us feel at home. We were very sad that they were closed for their needed "day of rest" the next day as we really wanted Sami's Rosti again.

We were travelling through the region wondering where to have dinner and remember this restaurant from a visit earlier this year. We enjoyed our meal so much the first visit we decided it was worth the hour detour. We were defiantly not disappointed. Sami cooked up a wonderful meal and Erika gave us some wonderful tips of where to go... More

Thanks to Sami and Erika for showing great hospitality and taking interest in where I came from, and what I was doing. They went to a lot of effort to make me feel comfortable during my stay in Beatenberg by talking to me about the area. And, of course, the food was really enjoyable too!

Sami and Erika were the best hosts. Erika in front of house and Sami the one man chef made us feel very welcome. Samis Rosti was to die for as were the pork bratwurst and cheese fondue. Erika was the epitome of a perfect maitre ' d from her ability to speak English to her passion for her home town... More

Welcomed in by Erika, the ultimate maitre'd and front of house and Sami, the one man chef. Best Rosti and Bratwurst and Cheese Fondue ever! Erika loves New Zealand and made us feel like a member of the family. The elusive Sami (so professional and busy in the kitchen) took time to chat and share his own travel experiences with... More

I had lunch there, "Siedfleisch-Salat", boiling beef meat with various salads. It was very good and well presented. The interior is small-scale; cozy and homely. I was waited at table in a pleasant and experienced way. I recomend this restaurant for a good meal.

Ate here several times during our stay in beatenberg and definitely our favourite. Quality of the dishes produced by Sam are outstanding (I recommend the pork loin steak) and served by Erika who makes you feel right at home with her multilingual wit, humor and advice about the region. Definately a gem. But don't go there expecting fast food. Everything... More

We have eaten here several times during our stay in Beatenberg Bernese Oberland. The chef (Sami) always produced his dishes to an excellent standard and the host (Erika) was always friendly and took the time to explain any of the dishes in all different dialects. We would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone who is visiting the area.
