“Great Rosti”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

We went ot Des Alpes twice whilst staying in Kandersteg. The first time for Rosti and the second for Pizza. Both were really good.

The Icecream range is fantastic.

I would definitely go back.

“Mixed thoughts re this place”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

We visited the restaurant/bar 3 times over three days.

First visit we had a meal in the restaurant, had the double burger and my wife had the sausage abd rosti. Couldn't fault either and thought we'd found a great place.

Second visit for ice cream - don't think I'd be wrong to say they have the biggest selection ive creams in the village, bit slow on service this time but enjoyed the ice cream.

Third visit - erm.... having previously asked if we could call for breakfast even if we were not hotel guests we were assured that that would be ok. We arrived about half an hour prior to breakfast time ending to find hardly any breakfast left and they were very un keen to replenish it. Cereals and continental available only but nothing warm, no eggs!!!!
Ok we thought lets eat a nice breakfast and get off into town. We went to pay and were greeted with a bill for 30swiss francs! Thats a bowl of cereals, some meats and cheese and a bit of bread!!!!

If you don't want the passing breakfast trade, just say so don't load the prices to deter people.

What promised to be a good review turned to a poorer one due to the poor breakfast service and extortionate price!

“Popular family run restaurant (and hotel)”
Reviewed 7 November 2012

Situated about 10/15 minutes walk from the village centre towards the Sunnbuel cable car station, this popular restaurant is open to non-residents of the hotel, although closed on Wednesday's. Behind the small dining area at the front, there is a large dining area at the rear often favoured by groups. There is a separate bar area and a terrace and children's play areas, indoors and out.

Local specialities of the Bernese Oberland and Valais are available and the menu includes Schnitzel, Rösti (recommended) and Pizza. Prices are reasonable for Switzerland.
