You must dine here! Absolutely incredible from the moment you walk in the door. You will be greeted by Chef Michael's team with warm and inviting smiles. The restaurant seats many people comfortably and getting a window seat makes the experience extra special as you enjoy a beautiful meal in the Swiss Alps, so make a reservation as the place... More

We have been here for couple of hours btw trains. Friendly people, speaking German, French and English. Nice menu for kids-really good and tasty. Our choice was also very very delicious. Local white wines are good as well. Highly recommend.

This might not be the best restaurant in the world. And you would probably wish to have some other things on your menu. It's neither cool nor posh. But there is a difference that makes the world. One person. One smile. A lot of attention, a lot of courtesy. And this purely authentic. This woman, which I would not address... More

Not many restaurants open, recommended by the information centre. Such a lovely waitress, tall with blonde hair. She was absolutely delightful and spoke perfect English. Meal was not above average but service was great. The flies were terrible and really bothered us. We opened the window but this didn't encourage the flies to leave.

We ate at Gasthof Bären in Zweisimmen twice during our recent stay in town. Our first visit was on a Saturday afternoon with 9 people. The service was only fair. Our server seemed to dislike that we were English speaking, although she was most rude to my 85-year old mother-in-law who is actually Swiss and speaks Swiss German. On the... More

My husband and I were driving from Gstaad to Interlaken on a recent February Sunday afternoon and were hungry for a late lunch. Zweisimmen town was big enough to have several restaurants, but all were closed except Baren! Located on the main street, it had a sign out and several locals were inside visiting over snacks and drinks. A friendly... More

About 1 year ago, I guess, a new team has taken over the Baeren. Great smile when you walk in, reasonable prices and a kitchen knowing their stuff. We have been four people to go there (without any reservation) - despite everything, they found quickly a table for us. Menue has a nice variety and everyone found something. Waitresse made... More
