Visited this restaurant with our two kids (6/8 year old) on a beautiful sunny day. Pro: -the views from the outdoor patio is amazing -the large children play area is fantastic (kids can play, parents can enjoy peaceful time at the table) -the Indian meal items (we had two vegetarian dishes) were really good. Contra: -it took quite some time... More

I wasn't expecting the Indian food to be particularly good, but was very pleasantly surprised. My wife and I shared two dishes and the mutton vindaloo was very tasty with a slight chilli kick, but not the overbearing heat you'd find in a British Indian restaurant. The chicken curry was much milder, but still tasty and very good quality. The... More

Found this restaurant through the "nearby" application of tripadvisor. Good food, great view lake, games for kids, friendly service, just a bit long.

We walked to this hotel restaurant from the boat docks after a lake cruise from Interlaken Ost to Brienz. We read the posted menu along the waterfront entrance and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The restaurant was not crowded so we found a lakeside table immediately. Service was excellent and our lunches came out promptly.... More

This restaurant offers indoor and outdoor seating right on the lake. First and foremost, that is the reason to go to this restaurant. The food is decent and the seasonal menu is amazing....but the view is the main dish! We went in October so pumpkin was the theme of the seasonal foods. The pumpkin creme soup was to die for!!!...

Eat dinner on the terrace right on the lake-shore promenade. If you are looking for robust, traditional Swiss dining, including fresh local fish - or, alternatively, you want to enjoy Ayurveda Indian food created by an Ayurveda Master Chef - you are in good hands here. Fine food, excellent service. But don't only focus on the food. As the sun... More

The Seehotel Baren Brienz is located right on the promenade, with an outdoor terrace that has lovely views of the Brienz Lake and the Alps to the south. In spite of this, the restaurant rarely had more than a handful of customers the entire time we were in Brienz, a situation in marked contrast to the Steinbock Hotel Restaurant, just... More
