The Ermitage restaurant was a very enjoyable experience for our family. Many selections on the menu. All of our dishes were well prepared. It is difficult to please our group of picky eaters, but they were able to. Probably the best restaurant in Kandersteg in my opinion. We will return the next time we are in Kandersteg.

We had a good experience here last Sunday. The meals were not bad (but not fantastic either). Some salad bar items were drenched in vinegar and very heavily in dressing. Chicken serving was quite small. I asked for a side of fries and got rice instead. They did not have an English menu available so the waitress had to stand... More

The Ermitage is a fantastic restaurant. all of their meals are of very high quality. Dinner is served with bread and local butter and cheese, which are really wonderful. My personal favorites are the Blausee trout, sausage with rosti, and the desert sampler. Be sure to have the salad bar with your dinner as well. Just a heads up; the... More

We were very pleasantly surprised by the service here (which we've found spotty at best elsewhere in Kandersteg) & also love the focus on fresh, healthy, local foods. We'll be back soon.

Having had a stroll with friends and their dog, we called in for a nice lunch and ice cold beer, very friendly service, the waitress had a hilarious laugh! Busy but attentitive! I had the soup which was very tasty, the salds were fresh, everything was perfect thanks.

We were recommended to visit the Ermitage to try their autumn specials. The restaurant was busy with what seemed like locals. That is surely a good thing to see. We couldn't understand what the happy Swiss chatting was about, but everyone seemed very content with their food. The problem for us was the miserable face on the waitress. The service... More

We stayed in Kandersteg for two weeks in a vction rental. Our landlord, who was born and raised here, recommended this restaurant - we were not disappointed. Our meals were excellent - tasty, nice presentation, etc. The hotel and restaurant are owne/operated by a couple, and the husband spent several minutes chatting with us, even though the restaurant was very...

The rare restaurant nowadays that successfully combines excellent food(that's clearly prepared with passion and care)with professional service, and that at very fair prices. Portions were very generous as well. Win-win all around. I would highly recommend the fish dishes-fantastic!

Good food Fresh, well presented, and better still tasty. We didn't come here for a gourmet lunch, we were simply looking for a decent lunch during a long hike, but really surprised by the quality and taste. Salad, sandwich, soup - all hit the spot. Wet ski gear - no issues. Not sure it would feel so good for a... More
