We actually wanted to eat a cheese fondu but the restaurant was closed, we ended up her and got positively surprised.

We got a table where we had a view at the water, very cozy. We where a party of 8 including a toddler, but it was really child friendly and we also had our two chihuahuas with us. I really like restaurants where dogs are allowed.

We started of with antipasti and bruschetta, it tasted really nice.

We all enjoyed our dishes, non of us had a complain. I tried the mushroom risotto and it was very tasty. I always think it’s tricky to take risotto since it’s easy that it’s not well done, but this one was perfect.
I tried the veal and that was very good as well, so was the shrimps.
We all had different desserts as well.
I tried the tiramisu, classic and with orange, it was thumbs up for both of them.

We had a rose wine to our starter but that wine was so-so.
We loved the red one to the main dish.
It was pretty pricy but hey! We are in Switzerland, here everything is pricy.
The service was good as well and friendly.

Maybe it doesn’t look like a tubing special from the outside but it’s very good food and we for sure will come back if we visit Thun again...

We enjoyed a lovely dinner sitting outside facing the river and the charming wooden bridge/dam. We ate early so we had the back pretty much all to ourselves. Our waiter was courteous and friendly and we enjoyed some wine and cheese. There were five different entrees that I wanted to try so the waiter had to help me pick what to order. I had the mushroom risotto with squash which was delicious. I don't like eating mushrooms but I love the intense flavor they give to sauces and risotto in particular and I usually pick them out. This risotto was so well done that I didn't even mind eating the mushrooms because they were soft and not chewy. My husband had the spaghetti Bolognese which he really enjoyed. I really wanted dessert but sadly I had no room left in my stomach! The food was a little pricey but everything in Switzerland is expensive.

We had dinner at Waisenhaus during early August (5 people: 3 adults, 2 children) and the food was excellent (best Italian food I have tried for a long time) as well as the experience (we were sitting outside and the view of the Thun town and the river were awesome). Staff restaurant was very nice as well. The inside of the restaurant is very elegant and beautiful as well. We will definitively go back if we visit the Thun area again.

Fantastic meal! I say this with confidence because we ate there for lunch and 2 dinners! Branzino, veal limone, insalata mista, vegetables were the best I ever had! What puts this restaurant out of the stratasphere is the talented and gifted young chef! I travel a great deal and I unexpectedly had one of the best meals I ever had. Wait staff were all terrific as well. Prices reasonable and great location next to river.
