They have a nice playground out front for children which was the main reason that I came here (I had previously been here). Also the location is nice with outdoor eating area below the trees and close to the river on one side and cliffs of the gorge on the other side. There's also plenty of parking available. We wanted...

We popped in for a coffee (well, the kids had ice creams) after going through the gorge. Great coffee.

I went there with my grandson. I ordered a children portion, but he got one for adults. However one couldn't tell because my plate was not much bigger. The food is average, but the prices are too high for what one gets. There are better places in the area that deserve a detour.

We ordered pork with mushroom sauce and Rosti, and pumpkin soup. The rosti was yummy. The real surprised was the pumpkin soup. It's sweet and has a tinge of curry flavour in it. Didn't think that pumpkin and curry could blend so well together! It's a good place to take a rest after the long walk in Aare Gorge.

This restaurant/cafe/takeaway is NOT in Meiringen itself, but about 2km away to the East at both ends of the Aare Gorge. Food is typical takeaway and not brilliant, but absolutely fine if you feel hungry after walking the fantastic gorge, which is well worth s trip any time of year.

This is quite the usual restaurant at a tourist location. Prices are not that high and the cuisine and quality is what you would expect in Switzerland.

We arrived at the Aare Gorge one evening for a visit at night. Since it was raining heavily we decided to pass the time and have our dinner in the meanwhile. Dinner was ok, nothing great - prices reasonable by Swiss standards. Menu spread was quite reasonable. They had some Swiss Alpine beer which we tasted and liked.

I was pleasantly surprised by the good service and very tasty freshly cooked food here. I really enjoyed my meal before heading off into the gorge which is a short walk behind the restaurant. The restaurant was pleasantly quiet when we went - not sure how it would cope wen full.
