I was prepared to dine with the cows and it was very good and very fun. We visited on a weekday in February and got there early for lunch. The fondue was very good their bread was excellent. We had wine with our fondue and after lunch hot tea and some dessert. The drive was beautiful and you can also... More

We went here for lunch on a Saturday with friends. We went in late morning to check if we needed a reservation...while at first, we were greeted by one of the family owners, who stated that the place would be completely full for lunch (high ski season, naturally). When we seemed really disappointed, they made a way to fit us... More

Best cheese in Gstaad. Enjoy a wonderful raclette or fondue while watching the calves and cow in their immaculate barn. One of our families favorite evenings. Highly recommend this spot for young and old. Have an apero here après skiing.

Loved this place ! What a character spot - you enjoy typical Swiss fare while looking through a window into a working dairy shed. It's pretty funny because you do actually look at the cows bums!! But that in its self adds to the atmosphere. Served by a very traditional Swiss family - it's a lovely reminder that despite the... More

At the start of the slope's in the valley you find this little restaurant, half barn with cows and calfs on the otherside of a window and simple, but typical Swiss food in the restaurant. Cheese, hot and cold and tried meat are the key plates. A good idea, for most of the meals you can order full or half... More

Lovely cows, peaceful Swiss music and a nice collection of classic cow bells on display in the ceiling. This is a fun place to come with kids. The barn is ideally situated at the base of Wispile mountain so it should enjoy a great flow of business for lunch or early après ski business. They do next to nothing however... More

Not many places you can share your dinner table with the cows. If you want good Berner Oberland food, this is a great place to go. I went here with a group of 18 colleagues for a fondue dinner and was impressed. The dinning room is in a barn. It's separated from the cows by solid plate-glass windows, so no... More

We were told about this restaurant by our hotel bc we otherwise never would have known about it. There is no advertising and only a tiny sign to let you know you have arrived. It is literally a one room building with a glass wall that overlooks an actual dairy farm! As we ate our delicious fondue, we were able... More
