“Average food, a bit pricey - but the view is marvelous”

It is generally true that the higher up in altitude a restaurant is the more average the food becomes. First Mountain Restaurant bears this out. It is mostly traditional Swiss fare, perfectly adequate but expensive - but the view is spectacular.

It's a Shane as this restaurant could be amazing. Great views, great location but just not good enough.
The food is average, the service is a bit slow and the atmosphere is dead.
The restaurant is at the top of the bubble next to the First Fleiger which is a must. However you are probably better off bring your own lunch and using the picnic area.

You go here for the view, not the food. Food was tasty and very Swiss, which basically means small portions. View was absolutely amazing and makes you feel like you're on top of the world. We loved the experience.

It took 20 min to fetch the waitress to order and before we order we asked her to clean the table. She left and never came back, so we asked the other waiter and he cam back 20 min later to clean and get the order.

The dish I ordered which was basically potato rosti with sausage was delivered, and only after I touched the plate I realized it was extremely hot. The waiter didn't give us any warning. We complained to the waitress when we paid, she apologized with obvious reluctance.

This is the service you can expect here, but the view from the table near the fence is maybe the one of the best in Switzerland. My advice : don't eat here. just order drinks and enjoy the view and leave.

Eating lunch on the terrace of this restaurant offers a panoramic view over more than a dozen Alpine peaks, including the Eiger and the Jungfrau. A good number of waiters and waitresses are on hand, so service is prompt, with traditional Swiss dishes (try the local sausages) and copious desserts. Easily reached by cable car from Grindelwald.
