After having been to Schweizerhaus last weekend and then reading some of the reviews here, I really had to double check that we'd been to the same restaurant. We were in a hotel close to Schweizerhaus, nothing else in that area, so we were more or less forced to go there. But we were very happy that we did! The greeting was friendly, the service was excellent and when the food came..... well, we have not had such delicious and beautifully presented food for quite a while anywhere in Switzerland. We enjoyed the meal so much that we booked for the next night as well and lucky we did, it was packed then too. Another excellent meal, wonderful service, quite simply a lucky find for us. We would definitely return to Engelberg just to visit this restaurant, it was that good.

If you have been hiking up Waterfallvalley, or just enjoying the sun here you find excellent food (actually deer and venison) of the season. A bit pricey but remember its Switzerland

This charming restaurant is nestled in the Engelberg mountain valley with breaktaking views. The location is on a quiet, residential road approx 20-30 min away (via a slow stroll on the path through the hills) from the Engelberg village center. The look and feel is lovely with a comfortable and relaxing outdoor garden, complete with a mini-water fall and fish pond. The servers were very kind, helpful and accommodating. Unfortunately, the food quality was quite average/poor and disappointing, given we hoped the meal would match the fine atmosphere. The salads and fish courses were the only “thumbs-up” from our party of four, while the rest agreed the standard and taste was not very good at all. I would visit the restaurant as a destination to relax in the outdoor garden with a cold, freshening glass of wine or beer, whilst taking in the views but would skip the food and save the appetite for a better establishment.
