On a rainy night, this was the perfect cozy and traditional Swiss spot to settle in for dinner. Although I found my chicken on the salty side and their half portions were only 1 SF cheaper than the full portion, everyone found the service friendly...More

We had a very good meal at the restaurant. We had help choosing the Swiss wines, which were excellent. Well cooked, unpretentious food served in a lovely atmosphere and at a sensible price.

We were advised by lady at reception of our hotel to visit this restaurant. We liked it more, than others we visited in Grindelwald. Typical swiss food, swiss atmosphere and very reasonable prices. I would suggest Alte Post everyone for dinner.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Have eaten there several times and it's always been super. Just wanted to tell TravelBugNR that I have never experienced flies there, not once, and maybe he brought them in with him??? Just kidding! The hotel is -SPIC and SPAN- and the views of the Mountains is incredible at any time of the day!!! Try it sometime, you'll like it!!! It's always been my first choice to stay at when I'm in central Switzerland!!!
