Some of the reviews were dire so we were a little bit hesitant to go there for lunch. However we very much liked the decor and the service was good. This was the first time we were back following the fire (2 seasons ago?) and we thought the interior was much improved. More light and higher ceilings made the place much more welcoming. The acoustics were excellent so it was possible to have a proper discussion. We ate variations of rösti and they were absolutely acceptable. So all in all a pleasant experience and a good place to have lunch with friends. With main course, salad, wine and coffee the bill was a reasonable 40 SFr per person

We've been twice to this restaurant in the last year. Both times it was very enjoyable. Lovely interior and good service. The food has been quite good both times. Somewhat on the pricy side, even for Switzeland. Location makes up for it.
About 500 meters over an up-and-down paved path from the nearest parking.

Used to be nice but since it was taken over (the place burnt down) it became absolutely pathetic. Don't waste your time and money.

Lunch with family of 6. Charming chalet in a good location. Stunning view. Very good swiss food such as raclette, roestti, "gibiet". Big portions. Kids can play outside. Warmly recommended.

We have been coming to Frience for fondue for years with the previous owner. The new renovation is superb! The salad melee, the fondue, the wine, the kirsch, the service and the ambiance is outstanding! We asked for pain noir and it was provided and we believe that the new owner is offering a wonderful experience, wonderful food with a fabulous view! We will definitely return.
