“Pretty but Very Expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

We ate at this restaurant out of sheer convenience after our trip up to Jungfraujoch. It was really convenient, as it was two steps from the train stop at Kleine Scheidegg and it was in a very pretty setting. So darn expensive though and the food was very basic and there weren't many options. We wouldn't eat here again.

“Beer and snacks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

Stopped off for Swiss lager and pretsels which were fab. The beer is superb from Interlarken apparently. Lovely spot to relax and watch the travellers go by on way up and down from the Jungfrau peaks.

“ENORMOUS piece of apple cake”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

We ordered at the counter and no-one bothered us when we sat at a table outside to people watch and take in the trains and the views. Summer visit, just a snack before taking off on a beautiful walk. Lots of bathroom options for the enormous crowds. Didn't have a full meal as it was not long after breakfast and we were still full, but wanted to top off for a long walk. Easy to get water bottle filled, including with ice, not so easy in Swiss!

“Very generous portion!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2013

The food yet very salty to our own taste (it is apparently common in the German part of Switzerland) was very nice and served in generous portion!

“Railway station service!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2013

First day of our holiday, we decided to meet up and have lunch at the most convienient place on the mountain. The restaurant Bahnhof at Kliene Scheidegg was we thought a good option.
Yes for location, ideal for skiers and non skiers as at the mid point of the mountain, with easy access for walkers, sightseers and skiers.
Maybe this is the problem, as they are more concerned with table turnover than service.
On entry we were told they were fully booked, but then a reserved sign was removed and we were offered a table sharing with six other diners(we were six also). On viewing the menu we were surprised the the expense of the food in what is little more than a railway station cafe. Our initial 'greet and seat' left a lot to be desired. Abrupt, and unfriendly without any warmth or hospitality from our elderly female host.
It was not just us, as we witnessed her treating following guests, who had booked tables with the same attitude.
As we had a table we decided to stay, and not try elsewhere, hoping the food would make up for the indifferent welcome.
The house special we ordered was actually reasonably good value, and when it arrived was tasty and hot. However the manner it was served was again abrupt, even we ordered a second round of drinks we felt we were being an inconvienience.
The poor welcome, indifference and service from the staff totally outweighed the reasonably good quality of the food. so glad to leave and enjoy the rest of the day ski-ing.
