Finding a restaurant with a good value even with Trip Advisor help was difficult. We decided on fondue and began wandering through the town to find a place. This was a pricey item on most menus. However, the price at Hirschen Hotel Restaurant was about half the price of other places so we stopped in. They did not disappoint us. As far as I could tell the wait staff and kitchen was only 2 or three people but they worked hard! They efficiently covered 7-8 tables and no one waited any length of time for drinks or food. You can tell they care about what they are doing. The fondue was delicious! The value was excellent.

The menu is limited to fondu and French pizzas but both are tasty and good value for money.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The restaurant is located very centrally in Grindelwald.

The menu here is not large - mainly Cheese fondue or Flammkuchen. However, what they do, they do well. The house recipe cheese fondue was delicious and they were very generous with the extras - we had extra fondue, bread and pickled onions, fully expecting to be charged extra for it but this was included in the price. The staff were very friendly and seemed concerned to make sure we were having a good time. It had the nice feel of a family run place where the team were keen to go the extra mile to ensure their guests enjoyed themselves.

By Swiss standards, the prices were pretty reasonable. We had a decent bottle of Sancerre, the fondue with pickles, potatoes & bread, schnapps and bottled water for under CHF60 per head. Although this will probably make non-Swiss residents choke, it is actually pretty good value compared to what you would pay for that elsewhere.

This restaurant serves a lovely cheese fondue and most of the staff are friendly. My wife did not order a drink from the drinks menu so they charged CHF3.50 for a glass of tap water! Check out many more reviews on tripadvisor "Hotel Restaurant Hirschen" and you will find that the hotel is good but the restaurant really needs to lift its game. Many guests on package stays were disappointed or ate elsewhere.
