Came late at night. Place closed. But with our booking We were allowed in. Light on, the hosts came, and gave us a memorable dinner. Are you a family with kids? This is perfect😀

The simple little restaurant offers excellent food and marvelous strudels of all kind. Don't get trapped to talk with the (>70 y.) senior owner. He loves to tell his life story over and over again (working in the international Hotel business for 30 years, blah blah blah.) But the location is very nice, there is a little play ground for...

Having been on a long walk we dropped in for a drink and a bite to eat on the way back to our chalet. Lovely staff made us feel at home and served us lovely food as we looked over the incredible views down the valley. I'd definitely recommend this place and will call in when passing next time.

Arrived there with our dog and 9 year old daughter after a 20 minute walk from the gruner hotel. Nice walk! We sat outside and enjoyed the good food and friendly hosts. The apple juice was homemade and delicious.

Visited in Summer, lovely weather to sit out side. We could enjoy some strudel and drinks and look out over the play garden where our son could play. Great swing with gorgeous backdrop of snow capped mountains and the himmelwand side of the mountain. It's a lovely 15-20 min hike from the parking lot.

The hutte has a large selection of strudels as well as... More

During our 6 day visit to the Hoteldorf Grüner Baum hotel, we went to this place 3 times. The walk to this Hutte is a beautiful 20 min path next to a river from the hotel. This little Hutte has a limited variety of local dishes and is served by an elderly couple who are very friendly, please dismiss the... More

Beautifull location, limited menu but excellent, home made food, but little dictatorshio run by an elderly restaurant owner who looks like from the Heidi story.... Too bad for the owner who should retire ASAP so that he would not terrorize his staff and sometimes guests. Maybe e a younger generation (one of the frightened waitresses looked like his granddaughter) should... More

A great place to walk to from the Gruner Baum and the coffee and raspberry curd strudel is to die for. I would liked to have smapled their lunch which looked excellent but I was too full from the hotel breakfast!
