“Authentic Swiss Cuisine!”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

After reading the reviews here in TA we gave it a try, and it exceeded all of our expectations. I couldn't leave Switzerland without an authentic fondue and this is the place to enjoy it. The atmosphere, staff and "gemutlichkeit" all added to make this an exceptonal experience. Arrived early without reservations and enjoyed good wine, smoked trout appetizer and very friendly service! The cheese fondue topped off this wonderful night, and we will return!

“Good food, good service, a little pricey”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

My husband and I shared the chicken dish with the rice. LOVED IT! The chicken was a good portion and cooked perfectly. The brown sause it came with was very good (a little spicy) and the rice was also very good. Over all the experience was great, just a bit too pricey in my opinion. My husband had a beer and I had a glass of wine, plus the chicken was easily 50 Franks....

“So good, we went back!”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

This restaurant was less than a block away from our hotel; so we decided to try it one night based on TA reviews. First night we had cheese fondue. We found it to be very good - and we make cheese fondue at home ourselves. The flavour of the cheese was good; the right blend of sharpness in our opinion.

The sevice was very friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere in the restaurant made us feel very comfortable. We returned on one other night, and again were very happy with our meals. Two of us had pork schnitzel, and one had fish. All three meals were very good, generous portions. One of the servers remembered us, and welcomed us back to the restaurant - a nice touch. Actually, when my husband commented on the coasters (they had local pictures on them) the server returned with an entire sleeve of them for us to take home! Had we been in Interlaken another night, we probably would have returned for a third visit - the food was that good, and we found reasonably priced.

We had a great meal here after a cruise on the Thunersee. Best schnitzel and goulash soup! Nice bottle of Dole too.
