My husband and I visited this restaurant nearly 15 years ago and the food was wonderful....this year we returned with our five year old and I think it was even better! Simple kids menu works well and the toy on the plate is a crowd pleaser for the little ones! The fondue is delicious and the roschti is the best... More

We went here to celebrating my grandfathers birthday. Really a charming restaurant lovingly decorated incorporating the seasons. Miniature snow villages and snow & ski decor were set up all around the restaurant interior, reflecting a little winter wonderland paradise. Really cozy environment while waiting for the food. The service was very friendly and accommodating and even a chimney fire was... More

Amazing time. Not a super tourist place, lots of locals come here. Came with my friend for some cheese fondue and it was amazing. I highly recommend it!

The place looks very nice and is very cozy. But unfortunately, the service and the fondue was very bad. The waitress was very unpleasant, never smiled and when I told her that the fondue was really bad she did not care at all. I asked her for better bread at least. With an angry face she brought us normal bread.... More

My partner and I wanted to have a nice dinner. We stood at the front door of the restaurant for a few minutes, and till I called one of the waitresses nobody addressed us. The waitress who served us was extremely unpleasant and the food was full of oil and salt.

I was looking around for some local food and I have been addressed to this restaurant. Very nice place, typical furnishing in a peaceful environment. The lady is very nice and pleasant and spends some time to speak and answer to my question. Very good food and local beer! I eat a very good rösti. I strongly suggest this restaurant.

We went there at 3 in the afternoon for a really late lunch, and other than a couple of other tables, we were the only ones there, which I understand made it a rather atypical situation. But we got very good service :) The waitress was very attentive, she took the time to answer our questions, and checked back pretty... More

We enjoyed our evening at Laterne. Those who did not want to try "swiss cuisine" were able to order hamburgers and pasta. Those that did want to try "authentic swiss cuisine were not disappointed. The Atmosphere was great and we walked from the Grand Lindner hotel It was a nice stroll through a neighborhood. All in all a great experience.

Simple decoration with not much taste. Neither were the food! Just plain ordinary street food. Does not worth the detour at all. Plastic outdoor chairs and table clothes kills the appetite even before food arrives.

Restaurant Laterne is off the beaten path in Interlaken but well worth the ten minute walk from the main street. It is very German in style, with very friendly service and excellent food freshly prepared. While the menu is extensive we focussed on rosti which was deliciously prepared and came with a special butter sauce. We were there on a... More
