Des Alpes at Interlaken serves one of the best cheese fondue in Switzerland! Mixing 4 cheeses and mushrooms in one pot and enjoy it with freshly made breads are beyond words. Nom nom nom .. Apart from the great food and wine, the service is lovely. Although the area is frequented by Chinese tourists who are not good at Chinese,... More

Ducked in here as it was raining and it was close to our hotel. When we walked in was told to take a seat, not shown to a seat, and witnessed a young couple from our hotel in a heated discussion about the bill and tip.... Waiter came over and tried the oldest trick in the book by trying to... More

Bit old style but the food is good. Would recommend the geschnitzeltes "zurcher art". It caters for many tourists which I am sure in peak season could be rather loud and crazy.

Enjoyed everything. Got upsold (voluntarily) on the wine which was a good choice. Arrive hungry -the röstis are filling!

This restaurant was nice. The food was nice. Service was friendly and efficient even during busy dinner hours. The one thing I didn't like was that they charged even for tap water, which we found over the next couple of days that none of the other restaurants in the same area had such a policy.

Unhelpful staff. Very costly. Ordered a fondue. Good taste but exorbitant cost. Fondue priced per person. Charges for tap water.

This restaurant has really nice food, great variety in the menu & reasonable prices too. Very warm welcome & quick service even though we had no booking. We dined there on 2 separate occasions & highly recommend Des Alpes - great for couples & families.

The tables along the front of the cafe have a perfect view of the mountains opposite, and the coffee is superb. They are a bit funny about ordering less drinks than people sat at the table, even if the cafe is empty. Interlaken is expensive and there doesn't seem to be anywhere which understands a traveller's budget!
