Had a fantastic day out at Jungfrau. The Top of Europe. Amazing sites and well worth the CHF90.00 with half price rail card. The restaurant was amazing and the staff were wonderful. The food was great and the drinks very reasonable. Thank you

The restaurant at the top is fine. Food ok, a little expensive, but views are stunning. The cable car to get there is great fun

This review is for the self-serve cafeteria, not the table service. Even for a tourist trap, it's pretty bad. The hamburger was flat and while I'm sure it was beef, it reminded me of a chicken nugget with "parts and pieces". Fries were good. Lunch options included some spaghetti, some sausage, chicken nuggets and the hamburger. The barley soup was... More

After a lengthy walk it was great to get some dinner, not much choice for vegetarian but they did make us some chilli and garlic pasta which went down a treat. It was a little pricey but the portion size was massive.

This is just what you need at the top. Best hot chocolate and best coffee. The views from the restaurant are amazing so you can just enjoy your order. This is a must go site.

Pros--views from terrace are beautiful. Cons: rooms are actually narrow bunk rooms located under the ski lift in the basement of a ski resort. Rooms are spotlessly clean but claustrophobic, narrow and yet enormously expensive. We paid about 300chf for 2 adults and 1 14 year old. Food was inedible gross brown slop. Staff was friendly and helpful. Basically this... More

There was a self-serve and restaurant option, the latter catering to groups. Having just been to the Jungfraujoch self-service restaurant, I would say the prices here are comparable to there, about 20Fr for a lunch. On good sunny days the terrace is nice, but personally, having endured the cold during the hike I preferred to be inside where it was... More

This is a big place, catering to large groups of skiiers and summer visitors. They have a self-serve area as well as table service. The food is good. They have a decent wine list. The staff is extremely attentive and friendly. And the views cannot be beat.
