The Alpenhaus is a very cozy restaurant in downtown Montreal. The food is very good and the price okay.

Was in town with my Best Friend and we stumbled across this place after having decided we didnt want to go to the tourist traps.

it was excellent, Some wine, Some cocktails, Some veal, Good company...what more could a guy ask for?

The staff were superb and the Waiter from guyana (i think he might even be the owner) was interacting with me over the cricket (Cricket is huge in both Australia and Guyana)

If im ever back in Montreal will definitely come back!

“Cozy, nice service and great food”
Reviewed December 14, 2012 via mobile

First, i was born and raised in switzerland. Last night me and two other people had a lovely meal at alpenhaus. Wait staff was efficient and very friendly. The onion soup was outstanding, the cheese used for it was just better than anywhere else i've had it. Main course was the veal emince in a mushroom sauce "zürigeschnetzeltes" accompanied by a homemade hash brown with bacon "Berner Rösti" which is a very traditional swiss dish. The owner told me they use swiss spices, which explaines why the food really tastes authenticly swiss. Half way through the meal we became good friends with the chef the service. To top it off we were served a traditional swiss liquor. The piano player is a good addition to the really cozy atmosphere. Food quality|portions|price is very fair. i will be back soon

“Yummy food and great service”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

We had been looking forward to trying this place for a while. We had swiss fondue for the entree, chinese fondue for the main course and chocolate fondue for dessert. All 3 were very yummy and portions were more than reasonable. Service was awesome and efficient. The owner greeted us when we got there and when we were on our way out he took the time to ask us about our meal, about what we had enjoyed and if there was anything we didn't like. We did use a group deal which gave us a great discount on our meal. The place was awesome for a date night. We'll definitely be going back! PS: I'll make sure to write reviews on YellowPages and foursquare as well :)

“Excellent, Excellent!!!!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

I have read some of the previous reviews on this restaurant, but I have to say I found it quite charming. The food was delicious, the portions were good and the wine selection suggested to us by the server was perfect for our meals. The service was awesome and quite fast, even though the room was full.
