“A Hidden Gem!!!”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

A great little homely mountain hut serving food and cold beer a couple of hours walk up from Grindelwald. A little off the beaten track, this place is surrounded by forrest art, a hobby of the owner, and has a wonderful view of the Eiger, Shreckhorn and Wetterhorn...

“A unique mountain hideaway”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Rolf prepares good food with a unique menu compared with most mountain restaurants. The climb is rewarded by good food and wine with outstanding view from the balcony in the middle of the fir trees.

“Great view for dining while hiking the trails”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

A friend and I stopped by here while trail running and admired the views from the dining deck, but didn't stop to eat unfortunately.

“Lunch with a view that will bring tears to your eyes”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

I can't believe more people have not written reviews about this place. I have been here several times when I've visited Grindelwald. I've taken the First Bahn up to Bort, and then hiked a beautiful, easy trail over to Aellfluh. It sits high on the hill, with the forest to the back side and the views of Grindelwald and the surrounding mountains to the front. Even if you don't feel like eating, it's worth sitting, sipping a beer and just taking in the views - they are gorgeous. But if you do eat, the food has always been good. If you're in Grindelwald, then you must be hiking at least a little bit. And if you're hiking, then you must hike in the direction of this place!
