I absolutely loved our dinner and evening here while on tour. A taste of real traditional food and entertainment. The crowd was also asked to participate in the entertainment which was hilarious. A fantastic night which I'd highly recommend.

OK, although the food is said to be traditionally Swiss, it is pretty average. The accompanying show however is a real hoot. The musicians and the yodellers are very skilful indeed. But it is when the audience is asked to participate that things really start...More

The food was only ok but the show was awesome. Definitely worth seeing. They get the crowd to join in and offer free beer for those who participate. We went with Globus tours. It appeared to have many different tour companies there.
