When the Von Trapp family made it over the Alps they would have headed straight to the Eiger to celebrate. The food is simple home cooked authentic Swiss. The atmosphere is great, shabby but traditional decor and Alain is an insane host. Sometimes charming, sometimes crabby - always fun. Love the regulars who hang out there, and the eclectic groups who wander in. Uber cool it's not, but it is refreshingly human. Enjoy

I have never had a bad meal here. The menu is the same all the time and will never change as Alan's wife does all the cooking.
Alan will always ask have you been here before when you book so you know his sense of humour as it definaley will not suit all..
He is one of a kind here and we thoughly enjoy his sence of humour when you order etc
If you are sensitive this place is not for you. If you love the atmosphere and the great food this is definately the place to go. Just try it and you will not be disapointed

The owner of this place is such a rude, unfriendly person! It's obvious that he's got a problem with alcohol and should seek some professional help. He seems to be famous for that in the hospitality industry.

Food is below average and cannot be compared to genuine Swiss food. Furthermore, the food is over priced.

Don't bother to go there. You better go to the Bavarian Beer Cafe where you get similar European food.
