Very convenient to have the restaurant in the hotel, when you come back tired after a day of exploration! Copious portions, good quality, and a variety of Swiss dishes.

The Steinbock is a very fine restaurant located in the heart of Brienz, a small mountain village of about 3,000 permanent inhabitants. Newly rebuilt after the terrible floods and mud slides of 2005, the Steinbock offers a comfortable Swiss athmosphere and feautes a menu of regional Swiss cuisine prepared traditionally but with refinement and consistent high quality. We go there... More

What a shame! Staying for an overnight in Steinbock hotel we had our breakfast in this restaurant. What a disappointment! Very limited choice of products. Fruit salad from preservatives. Only 2 types of müsli. We definitely missed bierher-müssli or at least any crunched müssli. Service is unfriendly...

My wife and I arrived late (approx 9:15 PM) into Lauterbrunnen and very few places were open that served food. The one place that was open anywhere near our hotel was the Steinbock hotel restaurant. At that time of night they were only serving pizza. I dont know when they stop serving other options. Since we were hungry, and had... More

We stopped here for a quick drink when in Brienz. Nice terrace by the road there. Seems like a nice place.

How refreshing and what a great and warm welcome. We had been traveling all day from the UK ( Kent ) so when we walked into the Steinbock hotel restaurant @ almost 9pm we half expected to be turned away. Mira the owner, and the waitress were fantastic. The restaurant is very well laid out and the food exceptional -... More

We spent 3 nights at this inn/hotel and ate here each night and for breakfast. Food and service were very good. The variety and quantity of food was also very good. We did check out other restaurants but none of their menus appealed more than here. Other restaurants however do have better locations...specifically views of the lake.

Unfortunately, Swiss restaurants are extortionately expensive, but if you end up paying 200 francs for a meal you might as well do so eating egli at this restaurant on the edge of Lake Brienz. The view is great, the food is very good and my kids liked the grape-juice, which was served like it was wine.

Came here for lunch after a cruise on Lake Brienz from Interlaken. Very extensive menu is available with something to suit everyone. The rosti was superb and could have fed two people easily. Very friendly staff and good baby changing area. Restaurant is about 10-15 minutes walk from the boat terminal. Quite expensive place but you're in Switzerland so everywhere... More
