From the outside terrace of this restaurant there is a fantastic view over Grindelwald and the Eiger. But for me, that’s where the positives ended. This is very much a ‘self-service’ restaurant. Pick up a tray in the inside, order then wait for your food, carry it outside and hopefully find somewhere to sit. When you have finished, clear your... More

This remote Restaurant offers a spacey patio with an amazing view of the Eiger North Face and the valley. Food and drinks are great and the walking trail to Aellfluh out of Grindelwald is beautiful as well. The trail is sometimes quite steep. It takes a little less than an hour. For families or people not capable of walking such... More

It is lovely walk from Grindelwald to Aellfluh through the woods. The walk is on a good path which is steep at times, but take a breather along the way to look at the woodland art and the elves in the trees! Two minutes walk from the Aellfluh restaurant there is a path that leads to a fantastic viewpoint. It... More

A great little homely mountain hut serving food and cold beer a couple of hours walk up from Grindelwald. A little off the beaten track, this place is surrounded by forrest art, a hobby of the owner, and has a wonderful view of the Eiger, Shreckhorn and Wetterhorn...

Rolf prepares good food with a unique menu compared with most mountain restaurants. The climb is rewarded by good food and wine with outstanding view from the balcony in the middle of the fir trees.

A friend and I stopped by here while trail running and admired the views from the dining deck, but didn't stop to eat unfortunately.

I can't believe more people have not written reviews about this place. I have been here several times when I've visited Grindelwald. I've taken the First Bahn up to Bort, and then hiked a beautiful, easy trail over to Aellfluh. It sits high on the hill, with the forest to the back side and the views of Grindelwald and the...
