We have visited the Eiger Swiss Restaurant many times over the years. Planning our next visit, we found out, the restaurant has closed. The reviewers here (and other sites) are rather mixed for good reasons. They owner who runs the restaurant is rather eccentric and...More

When the Von Trapp family made it over the Alps they would have headed straight to the Eiger to celebrate. The food is simple home cooked authentic Swiss. The atmosphere is great, shabby but traditional decor and Alain is an insane host. Sometimes charming, sometimes...More
