As you'd expect in the Swiss Alps, the prices in this restaurant are really high. Apart from that, everything is ok.

The First Mountain Resturant is situated at the top station of the Grindelwald Firstbahn which takes you on a mind blowing ride to 2168 metres where you can shop, eat, or just gaze at the wonderful mountain views. The restaurant offers self service, or full waitress restaurant service. The restaurant can be very busy at lunch time so best to... More

We had a quick lunch in the self service part. The bratwurst tasted good, but we only got a very small piece of bread. The views are fabulous! Prices are "normal" Swiss ones...

Had a fantastic day out at Jungfrau. The Top of Europe. Amazing sites and well worth the CHF90.00 with half price rail card. The restaurant was amazing and the staff were wonderful. The food was great and the drinks very reasonable. Thank you

The restaurant at the top is fine. Food ok, a little expensive, but views are stunning. The cable car to get there is great fun

This review is for the self-serve cafeteria, not the table service. Even for a tourist trap, it's pretty bad. The hamburger was flat and while I'm sure it was beef, it reminded me of a chicken nugget with "parts and pieces". Fries were good. Lunch options included some spaghetti, some sausage, chicken nuggets and the hamburger. The barley soup was... More

After a lengthy walk it was great to get some dinner, not much choice for vegetarian but they did make us some chilli and garlic pasta which went down a treat. It was a little pricey but the portion size was massive.

This is just what you need at the top. Best hot chocolate and best coffee. The views from the restaurant are amazing so you can just enjoy your order. This is a must go site.
