“good Suure Mocke (marinated beef)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

convenient location, homey atmosphere, relatively good prices (considering all food in Switzerland is not cheap). Tried a dish recommended by Fodor's travel guide: Suure Mocke "a tangy braised-meat dish that's marinated in wine and vinegar for 2 weeks". It did not disappoint and since the dish included mashed potatoes and a small amount of green beans wrapped in bacon, it was a fairly good deal. Only wish would be for a slightly larger portion.

“Amazing fondant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

This is the best swiss/fondant restaurant in town, it's only 5-min walk from Interlaken West train station, and the service was impeccable! The ambience was also warm and romantic! The food was delicious (cheese fondant & veal steak).
P.S. My husband is not a fan of trying anything new, but he loved it!

“Traditional setting, average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014 via mobile

Very traditional chalet style restaurant, so few of these left now in Interlaken. Nice atmosphere, my wife had quite a good fondue (cheese) but the rösti I had was very dry and bland. Quite expensive also, and very busy even on a Monday so book ahead.

“Wonderful little mom and pop restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

Came here alone to get some authentic Swiss food. What a treat it was!

I came late at night, and on the outside it looked closed. But when I entered it was alive and well. Maybe 14 tables on the inside, nice and cozy.

I decided to order a cheese fondue, and a lamb dish. The waitress looked at me and said no. I was confused and asked why. She said it would be too much. I smiled and said bring it on.

The cheese fondue was great. They brought the perfect amount of bread as I finished the bread and fondue at the same time. The lamb was delicious. Perfectly cooked medium, juicy, and well seasoned. The accompanying vegetables were great as well. I left my plates clean.

Would come here again for sure.
