My wife and I ate here with her relatives from Thun and had a excellent evening. The atmosphere along with the service and food have made this a definite return to place. We tried the prawns, perch and sliced beef all of which was delightful....More

Unterseen is so much nicer than Interlaken, and this restaurant is a gem. Spectacular tapas, very good fish, nice wine. Highly recommended.

I mean, the food was good (we had the tapas menu for chf 85 each one), the wines also but nothing was really ever mind blowing. Very basic desserts (fondant au chocolat and a sorbet). The waitress were really kind and the place was also...More

Everywhere in Switzerland is pricey - just accept it. What you get at Benacus is a whole dining experience set in a friendly contemporary restaurant atmosphere. Went there for a golden wedding treat whilst visiting Interlaken. Our hotel receptionist got us a table at short...More

Very expensive (but then everywhere is in Switzerland - but this is over the top for what you get) and only average food. Service is okay, bordering on the ambivalent. Have visited here previously and been very happy with the food but it seems to...More

A friend of mine, who lives in Unterseen, recommended Benacus so we went there for dinner. I ordered a hamburger (and now you're likely wondering why I am writing this review) and it was probably one of the best hamburgers I have ever eaten. Had...More

We came me and my friends but we left before we order because the waitress was so rood we wanted to order and she left in the middle of the order and she never smiles so we left with a bad impression

The Benacus is a bar restaurant in the historic centre of Unterseen. It is a place where people meet for an aperitif, a glass of wine or a cup of coffee. The place has a stylish feel. The bar is the soul of a restaurant. The vaulted cellar at the Benacus, however, is full of special wines and its cosy atmosphere leaves an impression. The combination of a medieval building and a modern interior attracts a mixed clientele and makes the place feel relaxed, stylish and vibrant. Competent staff serve lunch and evening menus which change every day ? for example, at the 8-person table in the open show kitchen. Here diners can see for themselves the clever and straightforward methods used to prepare fresh seasonal dishes. The restaurant can accommodate 55 diners indoors and another 45 diners outdoors.
