Typical Swiss Restaurant Interlaken West?

Hi all! Can anyone suggest a simple but good and nice Swiss restaurant in Interlaken West? We are meeting some Asian friends of ours there but don't know the area well

Price not an issue but we are not fancy people so don't need a posh place

Thank you!

Re: Typical Swiss Restaurant Interlaken West?

It’s not technically Interlaken West but it is just a short walk away in Unterseen.

We really liked the Bären in Unterseen

Yep I have the same Google skills but the top 10 are mostly Indian and Asian - not what I am looking for

Re: Typical Swiss Restaurant Interlaken West?

This is the one we go to quite often. It is 5 minutes or so on foot from the railway station and it has a traditional menu including Rösti, Fondu etc.

If you are flexible: Restaurant Luegibrüggli half way up to Beatenberg.
10 minutes by bus from Interlaken-West

Re: Typical Swiss Restaurant Interlaken West?

You can sort by Swiss. Which is what I did. So take one more step.... :-)

Re: Typical Swiss Restaurant Interlaken West?

I rarely use Trip Advisor anymore. Almost never get what I’m looking for, just what they want me to see.

Just like Google.

Same here.

Plus it’s no substitute for personal recommendations.

I use them. I write reviews when I visit places too.

I find them extremely helpful and with a bit of discretion - pretty accurate too.

The only ones I ignore are restaurant reviews by Swiss people (on the German side). They generally have a completely different outlook on food and restaurants than I do.

Michelin local inspector reviews are a waste of time too for the same reason.

Re: Typical Swiss Restaurant Interlaken West?

The Stadthaus in Unterseen https://restaurantstadthaus.ch/ is our favourite, less than 10 minutes walk from IW, but the Barenhaus is about as 'Swiss' as it comes around here.

Thank you - we went to the Bären and was spot on! Really kind servers also and the food was nice!
