We had two dinners here in our Grindelwald stay during the June 2013 heatwave. Standouts for me were the three grilled meats entree, very nice appetizers and interesting and affordable wine list. I would definitely return next time in Grindelwald. An anecdote to give a sense for the quality and creativity -- a garnish on a beef entree of a... More

After 8 summers in Grindelwald, we have found that the two best restaurants for a treat for ourselves and for taking guests are those in the Schweitzerhof and the Hotel Kirchbuehl.
