Gasthaus Riedboden - BEATENBERG
our favorite place to eat
. . . and the winner is:
We went there for dinner twice, and unfortunately it was fully booked on our last evenig, otherwise we would have made it three.
I won't talk to much: great food, great staff, great prices, little playground, bunnies, great view . . . .what more to say ?
You absolutely have to go there and you'll be delighted.
The owners Brigitte and Markus Jaun take a great interest in their guests, and leave their beloved kitchen on each service to enquire personally on each table about their guests well-being.
They do also have standard rooms, family rooms and even group accommodation for up to 10 p. per room.
Please give it a try!
Vegetarian selection on the menu.
other restaurants we recommend in the surroundings:
Freienhofgasse 13 Ch-3600 Thun
Pizzas are yummy ! !
Krone Aare Terrasse
a nice terrace by hotel Krone in Stauffer Gässli,
right next to a playground and river Aare.
We really enjoyed having a coffee here, than another one and still another one.
As the kids were busy playing with other kids on the playground it was the first hour within days that we could really sit down, relax and enjoy free time.
Gelateria La Favolosa
Bälliz 60 CH-3600 Thun
best ice-cream in town !
Chilllounge Café Bar
Obere Hauptgasse 38-40 Ch-3600 Thun
The kids hat burger and chicken nuggets, we went for nachos with cheese. There are also some more vegetarian alternatives on the menu.
Located in the very heart of Thun, it's a nice place to stay and definetely a place to chill, relax and enjoy lunch/dinner.
Staff was extremely friendly and professional, service was fast, everything was just fine . . .
Höheweg 57 Ch-3800 Interlaken
I had noticed Hooters restaurant a few days earlier when we strolled along the streets in Interlaken (it's just across the square of Höhematte), so we stopped there on Tuesday evening to have dinner.
Staff was great, especially our waitress Kristina. Se was very attentive, immediately asked if she should bring the dog some water, service was very fast & smoothly, dishes were yummy and even vegetarian alternatives on the menu.
Hannah was so delighted by the kind waitress that she asked for a souvenir picture.
Overall a great and positive experience...
....until we returned two days later.
Service was very bad, the waiter and waitresses unresponsive and inattentive, the food piled up at the food counter and staff just walked past it several times.
So it's not easy to give a good advice or to know wether you will enjoy Hooters Interlaken or not....you'll have to give it a try.
Vegetarian options on the menu.
as mentioned above: the best place to eat !
Tea Room Bel-Air
Hauptstrasse Ch-3803 Beatenberg
The local bakery also offers sandwiches, yummy breakfast, cakes and pies and Sunday brunch (on the 4th Sunday each month from May to October).
Staff and owner are very friendly and we loved to stop there nearly daily.
Unfortunately no positive review for the restaurant @ Dorint Hotel ! ! !
Hubel 114 Ch-3803 Beatenberg
Dorint Hotel Beatenberg is a renowned place to stay, so we had dinner there on the first evening after arrival.
We sat outside on the terrace as weather was really fine.
Staff was not extremely friendly, but what was most annoying, was the fact that we have been served by 5 different waiters and had to repeat everything several times . . . .
The kids had kind of a kid's drink and I especially asked what it was like and the waitress told me it was syrup with water. When the drinks had been served, it was an incredible quantity of syrup with orange juice, making it such a sweet and sticky drink that the kids preferred plain water instead.
As vegetarian option I had chosen a 'Rösti' a typical Switzerland dish made of coarsely grated potatoes fried in a pan, but unfortunately my Rösti was bland and laking of any flavor.
Dinner was expensive and portions were very small.
So, sorry, but no thumbs up for this place !
