I was mooching about whilst my colleagues continued their skiing and decided this place looked good for soup and sunshine whilst I read my book. The lady (who was the only one serving, although it was busy, did a grand job and very quickly I was sat in the sun slurping homemade tomato soup, munching chips and feeling very relaxed.... More

I had eaten twice at the Alte Post on our recent visit. The food is good and the service was excellent. The cost was average for the area the restaurant is located.

This is a really nice and friendly restaurant with excellent food. We were looked after very well and gluten free was no problem. A nice wine list with sensibly priced wines made for an excellent evening.

Low value for money. Main courses of average to basic quality for a price of 40 chf. Street diner type of food for a price of classy restaurant.

After 8 hours of hiking in the mountains around Grindelwald and rolling back into town at 7:00p, we were staving for a good meal. We wanted a small (read that, no large groups), personal place and found that in Alte Post. I had lamb with rosti and lots of fresh veggies in a lovely sauce. My friend had veal and... More

We arrived by train late for lunch. The limited menu served our needs just fine. We had grilled sausages that were filling with fries. Nothing really special, but good when we needed a spot quickly.

We sat outside and had a dinner with views of the mountains. I had the Pork steak and my wife had a salad. My steak was cooked just right and the seasonings were great. My wife's salad was large and fresh,

The restaurant is very unassuming, nestled into the Main Street of Grindelwald. My wife and I were exhausted after a full day hike up to the lake and First. Normally we search out specific places to go based on reviews and recommendations. This day, though, we had to choose the first available spot at the base of the hill. I... More
