We came here base on the reviews of TripAdvisor. It's perfect , especially the steak . It's one of the best one in Europe ! We loved it very much. We also ordered a cheese fondue . It's nice but as a Asian, I like steak or meat dish better here. ( although this is the best cheese fondue that... More

Alte Taverne offers real alpine dinner atmosphere. The old building is impressive. The menu offers traditional swiss food (e.g. fondue) as well as modern cuisine style dishes. Short, just go there.

We visited the Alte Taverne on our last night of a four night stay in Adelboden. It was certainly not peak season and therefore not having a table was not a problem. We were seated in a homely area of the restaurant with only six tables. The waitress was extremely friendly and helpful. Of the 4 other parties in the... More

A Steine is equivalent to a pint for the British. Try the wheat beer and other local beers. If you are in a group you can pay for your share separately. This pub/tavern closes certain days, these are usually displayed on the door. The waitresses speak some basic English.

Loved the cosy, friendly vibe of this place. We went for drinks on our first night and the waitress was really chatty and gave us free nibbles and chocolate. We returned for dinner the next evening. The traditional fondue was lovely and my boyfriend was highly impressed by the bison. Top marks!

Where to start... Our reservation was for 20:00. We walked in to be ignored blindly by the first two waitresses to walk past. The manager then arrived looking at us blankly, and when we explained we had a reservation - asked us to wait at the bar for 10 min whilst they prepared the table. There was another couple also...

After a bit of confusion over my phone number being taken down incorrectly - no doubt due to my linguistic skills, I popped into the restaurant to see if we could still have a table. I was greeted very warmly by the maitre d' or owner, who was very concerned at not being able to reach me. Thankfully she had... More

I had read reviews that it was the best steak in town and we agree! All of our steaks were cooked perfectly and tasted really good. Side veggies were plentiful and fresh. Steaks came with two different butters and a chili oil, although they didn't need them. Nice atmosphere and music. We would definitely go here again,

This was by far our best meal while in Adelboden. The Alte Taverne is very popular for all the right reasons so be sure to book ahead. We stopped in our first evening and we were lucky to be able to book one of the two remaining tables for two the following evening. Delicious food, heavier on meat entrees but... More
