Menu is a mix of burgers (including a very good pulled pork sandwich), regional dishes, pasta and a few Asian dishes. Several rooms, quaint and cozy, young service team that are friendly and welcoming. Prices are high (compared to neighbouring countries) as everywhere in Switzerland, but reasonable for the region.

We had dinner with friends in this lovely place. We enjoyed our dinner a lot. The menu is a mix of swiss and italian food. Everything was very good and tasty. Nothing to complain about the staff but nothing to be highlighted.

Visited for dinner during a business trip. the atmosphere is kind of edgy, but not too much, the menu is swiss cousine oriented, but not too much...basically a bit of everything but nothing in particular. portions are ridiculous for the price and the taste is pretty disappointing. The service is great though, quick and the waiters were really nice.

Thank your for your review. We appreciate your comments about our food and beverage menu. We are aware that for people from abroad Switzerland is very expensive. Be assured that Switzerland is expensive, the products we buy have a lot of taxes and so it gets really expensive. Sorry about that. ;-). We hope to welcome you again soon and... More

I had a Bresaola and was very suprised how cool they can present the food. The taste was fantastic, the place was nice and had a friendly staff. They proposed me a glass of wine, which was also very good. To be honest the place is really a must if you visit Pontresina.

When most of the local restaurants had stopped serving we arrived here and were given the pick of the entire menu after 10pm. Settled for a quick burger and it was super tasty!

Description
The Pitschna Scena is the vibrant meeting point for a colourful mixture of people. The rusty bar counter in the centre of the character-crammed locale was created by well-known Swiss artist Luginbühl. The place where hotel guests and local people get together for Scena burgers, tagliata or Alpine macaroni. The relaxed atmosphere in the rustic locale is an invitation to lean back and linger. The regular Thursday concerts with blues, rock, pop, funk and jazz ensure a party mood and are famous far beyond the valley.
