The Restaurant at First ropeway mountaintop station is the best for a restaurant watching the Eiger. The Eiger to look at on an open terrace while drinking beer in the summer and while drinking burning hot soup in winter is really splendid. We stay at...More

Review is for self-service (aka cafeteria) not the sit-down restaurant. Basic Alps cafeteria options for food, schnitzel, pommes frites, etc., but pricey. A coffee and a steamed milk was $10, and a small order of fries was ~$9 (+$.50 for a single serving pouch of...More

First is a superb location for all sorts of activities, such as walking to Bachalpsee and beyond, walking along the (free) cliff top trail, going hang gliding etc. The restaurant has a terrace whose outlook defies description, but you can while away hours just taking...More

Had a fantastic day out at Jungfrau. The Top of Europe. Amazing sites and well worth the CHF90.00 with half price rail card. The restaurant was amazing and the staff were wonderful. The food was great and the drinks very reasonable. Thank you

The restaurant at the top is fine. Food ok, a little expensive, but views are stunning. The cable car to get there is great fun

This review is for the self-serve cafeteria, not the table service. Even for a tourist trap, it's pretty bad. The hamburger was flat and while I'm sure it was beef, it reminded me of a chicken nugget with "parts and pieces". Fries were good. Lunch...More
