Think Chef was on holiday. The food was at best average - vegetables overcooked - meat dry (and with no sauce). Layout of the food on the plate was done by the waiter. For the price paid can get a much better meal many places...More

Never go to this restaurant. My family had chateaubriand on the grill and I had chicken on the grill. The sauces for the meats was full of Knorr seasoning. Just a terrible restaurant. Period.

The restaurant offers a wide range of menues, also typical Swiss ones. The service staff is very supporting, taking care to all your wishes. The quality of the menue is excellent and is woth its price.

Yes there is. Half board cheaper than b&b plus dinner as a walk in. Check with reception for deals. Half board people get fuller menu and note you can dine at related family restaurants such as Alpenhof

Time for specialeaties. Time for Tradition Julen. "Everyone is welcome in Restaurant Julen." That was as important for Meinrad Julen as it is today for the third generation of the family business. In the morning local workers stop by for their coffee break, at noon the traditional cuisine attracts businessmen, families and passers-by, and in the evening the cozy restaurant serves gourmet food based in traditional cuisine. New menus are created daily with love and passion. From the salad bar to beef tenderloin and lamb specialties to the hearty cheese fondue and dessert buffet on Thursdays, the a la carte menu has something for all tastes. Enjoy our carefully selected assortment of international wines. Make sure to reserve a table early!
