We had a really enjoyable meal here. We ate the cauliflower soup, the dumpling soup and we both had the deer for our mains. The food was very well cooked and the flavours delicious. The service was very good and the waitress very helpful. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

walked past this on my way to our hotel (Engelberg) and thought it looked really 'sweet'. Went back for dinner and wasn't disappointed. Good food, very comfortable, quite atmospheric. However, it was a quiet night so can't comment what it would be like when very busy. My only other observation would be the wine list. Whilst quite extensive I thought... More

The food here is overpriced. 20.- for three dumplings as a starter is ways too much. 10.- for a tiny salad as well. Same for the main course. However, the food was okay. Not outstanding but still good. The location with its timber interieur is quiet charming. Service is ok. We had to wait a long time for our food.

The waitress noticed we spoke English and German and asked which we would prefer for the evening. The waitress for very attentive and allowed us to taste the recommended house wines. The bread was soon delivered and the starters followed shortly thereafter.... More

Despite the limited choice of meals for vegetarians, I chose the only one they had on the menu - it was one of the best vegetarian meals I've ever eaten. As simple as it sounded with only vegetables on the plate, each individual type of vegetable was very well cooked, seasoned and presented. It's hard to find a good restaurant... More

We were there twice during our stay in Engelberg. A regular dinner and New Years menu. Very good and friendly service. All dishes were of a very high standard and tasted delicious. We will come back 👍👍👍

The restaurant is excellently furnished and has a lovely terrace in the pedestrian area. The restaurant ha recently changed owners and I can only say that they are doing a fantastic job. We had a nice gravad lax and luke warm potato salad which was heavenly. The menu is rather short - but what they have on it is very... More

The perfect place for lunch with friends after a fun morning on Mount Titlis. A wide variety of sandwiches and drinks to quench your thirst and hunger. I recommend the chicken, mozzarella, pesto toastie.

Great food, great wine and beer. A bit pricey, but all in all - loved it! They were friendly to let us in - no reservation, when in Engelgerg on a crowdy day, make reservations!

Very well presented and tasty food with good service. Much more elegant than your standard ski resort fare. And good value (as opposed to cheap) especially given the location.
