The location is really nice, with tables in the light of very big windows looking on the lake. The food was really tasty and the assembly of the dishes very accurate. Only one remark: there is no French or English menu, only in German.

We waited a long time to get service, and there was nobody else except us. After 45 minutes, we finally got the menu, ordered our food. A group of 40 Swiss came from the opposite side hotel (where we were) and sat down, they didn't get any service either. They sat, talked for about 20 minutes, then they all got... More

Went here for evening dinner having read trip advisor reveiws and was not disappointed. Very friendly and helpful staff, translating and going through the menu to help with our choices. Food and presentation excellent, and a lovely atmosphere and a great view. Would certainly recommend and go back.

The restaurant Dampfschiff is a pleasant surprise in Thun. We (two ladies - no longer very young) found the Dampfschiff laid back behind the Kunstmuseum on the shore of the river Aare. Tables stand outside with a great view towards the lake and the green trees and meadows of the "Brahmsquai". Through the windows in the first floor we can... More

We were walking out along the northern promenade to Lake Thun itself and spotted this restaurant so called in on our way back on the off chance. An attractive lakeside house with an upper verandah looking out over the riverside, so we had fun watching the people go by. We were not amazingly hungry so had an absolutely delicious soup... More
