We happened to find the Swiss Hibiscus while looking for a good restaurant relatively near the Portland airport. What a find! The fondue was so good, as was our dessert, but the service made our evening very special. Don’t hesitate - go!

This is the best Spaetzli I have had in the northwest. Other restaurants say they make it in house, but it is a dry noodle, from a bag, dropped in water like pasta. This is the real deal. Hand mixed dough!

Swiss Hibiscus is a modest, very casual restaurant with fewer than 10 tables in a small space. Like almost every restaurant in Portland, the dress code is casual and relaxed - - creased jeans would be considered dressed up.
