On a weekend hike we stopped by the Frutt restaurant for lunch. Service was friendly and helpful. The food is excellent, though expect typical Swiss prices. We had the Fitness Teller, large salad, with rasberry dressing and pan fried chicken - delicious! Our son had home made fish finger, which he really enjoyed. Highly recommended

We stayed at Frutt family lodge and only dined at Frutt lodge as the two hotels are connected by an underground tunnel. The restaurant and the food are great but what surprised me was the staff who was really friendly funny but polite. The terrace has a great lake view, I totally recommend it.

The restaurant does not match the excellent hotel. Service was slow and confused. Quality of dishes was mediocre. Given restaurant is part of a 4* hotel, I rate the experience as poor

We had dinner at the Frutt Lodge and enjoyed a lot the beautiful interior. Really perfect! For my personal taste there were too many waiters running around which gives a bit of a hasty feeling and we didn't always know who was 'ours'... Very friendly most of them, but less would be more, in my opinion. The food (cordon bleu)... More

Went there for a nice weekend. The suite we had was very specious and nicely decorated. Unfortunately that's where the compliments end. No parking in front of the hotel (you need to park your car elsewhere and walk up the hill for 10min), our minibar had 1 bottle of water in it and when we wanted to order some wine... More

Dear vak0208, Thank you by much for your review. As announced on our website, in our confirmation letter and on the Melchsee-Frutt website, the Melchsee-Frutt is car-free which is, in the eye of most of our guests, a huge advantage. There is nothing we can do about this fact other than to recommend to either take the cable car to... More

The food was nice and at a decent price for Swiss standards. We had 2 lunches which we enjoyed and 1 dinner. What we enjoyed the most was the breakfast buffet!

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and used the restaurant for lunches and dinners. The food was lovely, in the Stüberl the service was very good in the main restaurant the service personnel was still quite new and still getting used to the place but overall veryl friendly. Pleasant experience and absolutely recommended.
