“Good food, nice terrace for dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2011

Our waiter at the hotel recommended the Restaurant Spinne for dinner. The menu is quite extensive, focusing like all Swiss restaurants, on pasta and pizza. We had a good meal with friends who were also traveling in Switzerland. The terrace behind the restaurant/hotel was very comfortable and scenic which added to the experience.

“One of the best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2011

We arrived in Grindelwald quite late and asked two hotel waiters on a cigarette break to recommend somewhere we could get a good pizza. Both immediately agreed that the Mercato restaurant at Hotel Spinne was the place to go, and so it proved. Pleasant little room, attentive service and the pizzas were as good as the waiters had told us. We went back a few days later and sat in a larger dining room and ordered different meals. We didn’t enjoy the atmosphere or food quite as much as the first time, but Mercato still easily makes it into our top three eating places in Grindelwald. (the poorer score for value reflects the difficult exchange rate between Francs and British Pounds at the time of our visit rather than any fault at the restaurant, but it did seem expensive, a fairly basic pizza costing around £14-15.)

“Stunning!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2011

This was one of favorite places in Switzerland. We sat at a table in the garden with the mountain towering over us. The food was great. We had pizza. The service was terrific... They even gave us tap water when requested, something this American appreciates.

“World-Class View of the Eiger in Garden Setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2011

We had a lovely meal in the garden behind the building. The food (we chose lasagne and a chicken/broccoli pasta dish) and service were excellent and the setting was magnificent. We chose a outdoor table and the close-up views of the Eiger and surrounding mountains and glaciers were amazing. The dining area is protected from the lively street activity which we appreciated for our quiet and romantic dinner.
