We had a fantastic pizza in a great setting. They were very friendly and split the pizzas for the kids. Highly recommend this as a destination meal while driving along the lake.

We went to Spiez and were most excited to be there and also try out this restaurant.
Must say the view from the restaurant was breathtaking and the minute you enter you feel like you're at this fancy place and are going to be enjoying some great food - but the food and the service leaves you disappointed.
We tried the spinach and ricotta ravioli and the vegetable soup ( supposedly the soup of the day ) and both were tasteless and insipid- no amount of salt pepper or Parmesan could correct it.
Wish we had eaten somewhere else!

Dear Mr. Neha G.

We are saddened to read you comment and apologize for the unsatisfying lunch you had at our establishment. What you had to experience that day does not reflect in any way the standard of our kitchen or service. We therefore sincerely apologizes again for this.
We would be very happy if you would visit us again in the future and give us another chance.

Quite simply the best food we have ever eaten in Switzerland. We stayed here for two nights on our Euro trip and couldn't believe how lucky we were to have this quality Italian restaurant below our room.
The location is stunning, food awesome, all served with the most fantastic service, all the staff and the owners couldn't have been more welcoming. Thank you Hotel Riviera for a unforgettable stay.

We noticed this restaurant on a walk through Spiez and thought it would surely be expensive so close to the lake and boat landing. It turned out to be very reasonably priced for lovely food. We had a seat close to the window with a good view of the lake. The service was very attentive and friendly.
