Wow...what a find. Warm and inviting with an authentic Swiss menu. The food is fresh and delicious. Lisa our waitress gave us great advice to navigate through the extensive menu. The schnitzel is better than the schnitzel served in Zermatt. Portions are large...come hungry. We will definitely be back and I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

The feel of an authentic Swiss restaurant is certainly achieved by all the Swiss decor items. Even equipped with a "Stammtisch" no less. The view is certainly well worth the trip. With all those scenses satisfied I was hoping for a more authentic meal. Rösti for example would be a crispier affair rather than taken out a covered heat tray... More

Wow. What happened to this restaurant? My family and I went there after the Sunflower Festival today. We arrived and there was a small line up. We waited 30 minutes for a table (no problem there it was busy). When we got our table we made a point to order right away, we were all famished. Then the eternal wait... More

Had dinner there with the family. Food was very good, but expensive. This is not a place where you would eat everyday since you'd go broke in short order.

The Sunday morning brunch is fabulous and has no rival anywhere in the area. Great service, location and atmosphere. It's worth the trip out from wherever you are staying.

Figuring that the busy summer season would arrive with Canada Day we headed to Swiss Country House without a reservation on Tuesday, June 28th. How wonderful that Swiss Country House was filled for their famous all you can eat Pickerel. Wonderful for them and fortunate for us. We were given the opportunity to await an open table sitting in the... More

Drove an hour to find this quaint little Swiss restaurant. Was a family dinner and we heard the pickeral was great. Everyone ordered the "all you can eat " pickeral on Tuesday evening. except my 94 year old mother in law who enjoyed the snitzel.

After reading the reviews we were excited to go since there not much in magnetawan or surroundings. After eating there I was wondering what people were thinking rating it so high.. It was good but I won't be going there often that's forsure.. and people need to know some things before eating there. There's no substitutions... so you get seasonal... More

They serve good, wholesome food in a country setting. The view over the lake is spectacular. Also there is a resort on the property with cabins that are available to rent.
