Based on reviews here I called Tino and he accommodated us out of the blue. Turns out he's usually only open in the winter. Certainly a unique experience, and quite a hike UP from Wengen. The salad and cheese fondue were excellent, but pricey at 41 CHF pp. We aren't big drinkers but agreed to "some wine" and had much less than half a bottle. My mistake for not realizing we'd be charged for the whole bottle. He also suggested "kirsch", which we accepted, though only tasted it on a couple pieces of bread. That too was an additional charge, as was water of course.

Tino had interesting stories, and we had an enjoyable evening. Everything in Switzerland is expensive, and it's my fault we ended up at 300 CHF for 6 people, instead of the 250 we started with.

Go for the experience, but if you just want to try swiss fondue, probably get it in town, or better yet make it yourself.

This will be one of your most memorable meals. Tons of atmosphere and a great host. Even better if you are in a group. Well worth the trip up the mountain (take a cab or enjoy the walk.)

The Waldhuettli is a lovely, unique experience. Simple and traditional. All products are locally sourced and the result Is a very memorable evening. If you like the idea of a walk in the dark to a remote location in the woods, no electric or gas, food cooked by the host on a wood fired range in the corner, you would love this resteraunt.

We went as a group with 4 kids with our sledges and all had a lovely time. The journey there was a bit uphill right at the end but we sledged some if the way and the kids were towed. We really enjoyed the candle lit warm hut and the food and ambiance. Tino is a very charming host. An experience not to be missed in Wengen - very charming indeed.

If you are an 'experience' type of person - come here! Un-Real!! I get around and this is one of the most special dinner experiences I've had.

Tip: take train from Wengen to Allmend (7mins) and walk 'down' to the 'Forrest Hut' (20 mins and we'll sign posted). After dinner, walk thru Forrest straight down into Wengen (15mins in a Surreal Forrest walk - well guided/signed).

Bring your conversation as your host, Tino, a Wengen local who is a farmer, a ski instructor and a chef, has excellent English and a very broad knowledge.

If your thing is fine-dining - this place may not be for you. Shame!
