There’s an excellent choice of more than 50 places to eat in Grindelwald ranging from simple cafes up to gourmet cuisine.
The majority of restaurants are located in the larger hotels and offer high quality Swiss regional dining. The rustic Cava Cellar in the Hotel Derby is a good example and serves up a cosy raclette right up to midnight, which you can enjoy before or after tobogganing. The owners of the intimate Blüemlisalp also have their own farming business so you know where the milk, cheese and some of the sausages and meat is sourced, and the Steuri Pinte in the Bellevue has been welcoming diners since 1843.
For traditional Swiss-themed evenings (food and folk music) try the Glacier or Bodenwald. But to get away from Swiss cheese try the Kirchbühl for Asian cuisine or for Italian the Ristorante Pizzeria Mercato , or the small and friendly Onkel Tom’s Hut.
More than 15 restaurants offer gourmet cuisine. One of the best is La Pendule d'Or in the five star Grand Regina Hotel, which has a selection of regional Swiss specialities as well as high calibre French cuisine on offer.
