Description: The Benacus is a bar restaurant in the historic centre of Unterseen. It is a place where people meet for an aperitif, a glass of wine or a cup of coffee. The place has a stylish feel. The bar is the soul of a restaurant. The vaulted cellar at the Benacus, however, is full of special wines and its cosy atmosphere leaves an impression. The combination of a medieval building and a modern interior attracts a mixed clientele and makes the place feel relaxed, stylish and vibrant. Competent staff serve lunch and evening menus which change every day ? for example, at the 8-person table in the open show kitchen. Here diners can see for themselves the clever and straightforward methods used to prepare fresh seasonal dishes. The restaurant can accommodate 55 diners indoors and another 45 diners outdoors.

Can't speak highly enough of this restaurant. Food and wine exceptional - a cut above the competition worth crossing the bridge for.

The title speaks by itself! Yet I can add that in an urban decor well mastered, meals are trendy, staff is helpful, D, Bärndütsch, FR and EN.
It is worth a short detour from the main Interlaken center that during the high season is packed.
You need to book though to make sure you can enjoy this restaurant.

One of the best meals I have had... anywhere. And I never expected to find such a place in the Swiss Alps. Great service and atmosphere. But the food was tops! Strongly recommend you make reservations. I was a walk in at 5PM and it was booked but they accomodated me at the bar for a meal.

we were looking up for a place to eat and this came up also the concierge at the Hotel (Victoria Jungfrau) recommended to us. It was either this one or another local one . WE chose this one as I much preferred modern looking place. We were told that normally this placed must be booked so the hotel did it for us. It is situated in the old part of the town rather nicer part than the busy shopping tourist area. We showed up half and hour than planned gave them our name and the girl (waitress/reception) smiled and asked where we would like to sit, the restaurant was not fulled that night so we got to choose the table ( in some restaurant they like to make decision for you) . The atmosphere was lovely...very trendy and the food was delicious...it was flavorful compared to s0 many bland tasting restaurants. We love it and were not at all disappointed in any way. The restaurant did not have english version menu though only in German so you have to reply on the girl to help you through it but it was fine. We enjoyed our dinner .
