“Bad Service - Salty Food”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

We ate at the Taverne based on some reviews here and because we were staying at the Hotel Interlaken. The food is definitely not traditional Swiss, it's more of a "nouvelle cuisine" style. I had the famed veal with mushroom sauce and while the flavors were great, it was way over salted and probably about 70% mushrooms and 30% meat. The service was very slow and we had to remind our server a couple of times for things we asked for (like ice for water).

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to review our Restaurant Taverne. We are sad to see that we did not meet your expectations at all.
We aim to serve a moderne Swiss cuisine but still we also offer some of the traditional dishes like the veal with mushroom sauce, which you had.
As to the service, we very much regret that you did not feel taken well care of. We strive towards giving all our guests as good an experience as possible. Unfortunately we did not succeed in your case.
We shall ofcourse check our procedures with the F&B department in order to keep up our quality standards.
Once again, thank you for your review, which will help us continually to improve and keep our guests happy.

Best regards
Karin Snitgaard

“Taverne saved us from having a worthless trip to Grindelwald”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

We were staying in Grindelwald and were so dismayed with how crappy everything was that we drove to Interlaken for dinner. My family wanted a traditional Swiss meal (cheese fondue, etc) and we looked on Tripadvisor and Taverne came up highly rated. We were not disappointed and in fact, were surprised on the upside how great it was. Food was terrific, service was XLNT, food was beautifully served and displayed. It's a winner.

“Mostly Good Experience”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

Since the Restaurant Taverne was rated number 4 by TA, it seemed to be a good venue; and it was.
We did not have reservations but were still greeted warmly on this Thursday night at 7:30.
We were given a lovely table by the adjoining japanese gardens on the terrace.
The service started promptly. We settled on our choice of appetizers and main course slowly. The bottled mineral water came quickly and the wine followed shortly. The appetizer of slow cooked veal cheeks came a little slowly but was presented in style and was delicious. A small amuse-gueule from the kitchen helped us wait and was light and tasty.
The main courses were delayed by the prolonged service to a large group for which our waitress apologized for profusely.
The giant prawns were cooked to perfection and served with a tasty thai sauce. The caramelized veal was very tender, cooked appropriately and served with style with good vegetables and a tasty risotto side dish. The meat was a little fatty.
Half a liter of reasonably good swiss wine later, the total came to 84 francs, a reasonable price in Switzerland for this meal.
If the service had been impeccable and the veal leaner, the setting and food would have rated very close to a 5.
I would go there again and ask for the terrace by the japanese water fountain if the weather was warm enough. A good place.
