“Adorable and Tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

YUMMY! Not only does this restuarant have a cute patio and super nice servers...it is SO GOOD! Our favorite thing we got was the steak with the bernaise sauce and pomme frites. Ridiculous. It was also really fun because they gave you a gravy boat filled with extra bernaise sauce as well as a second helping of pomme frites that they kept on a hot plate for you so they wouldn't get cold. AWESOME!!!

“Great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Great food, fast service, reasonable price. The restaurant is adorned with old fashioned cookware. If the weather is nice, sit outside.

“Mürren : limited choice and limited menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

This restaurant mirrors a general problem encountered in MÜrren. The problem of staying in Mürren is that dinner is a matter of some few restaurants in this place on the top of the firs line of mountains, inaccessible to cars. If you do not like restaurant prices in comparison to food they offer, maybe it is better to go down with the mountain train (careful with the timetable) to the close villages (if you have left your car there Lauterbrunnen, Grimmelwald or, why not, to Interlaken) and you will be surprised by the difference in prices and quality. If you remain in MÜrren in the evening, and if there is no train to go down from the mountain of Mürren, you are "trapped" and you need to choose one restaurant. This La Grotte is maybe the less harmful choice, compared to the prices we have seen at the entrance of the other "restaurants"

“Dry food dry service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Overcooked food. Soggy fries. unattentive service and a complaint met simply with "oh". I guess we weren't VIP enough.

“Great food but service colder than it was outside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

We enjoyed dinner here recommended by Rick Steves and the food was outstanding- fresh ingredients with lovely sauces and presentation. However we were so astonished at how cold some of the people in the restaurant were- particularly the women working there. I won't go into details but one women was downright rude and hostile. Also, I would not say this is a family friendly restaurant. If you are looking for a relaxing dinner with your family the Eiger Hotel out shined La Grotte hands down. If you want good quality food and good prices this is a great spot but if you want warm service you will not find it here.
