My wife and I picked this place almost at random while passing through Zweisimmen on the way from Lauterbrunnen to Courmeyeur, and it ended up being the best meal we've had so far in Swirzerland. I had the roast beef with tartar sauce mainly out...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.

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...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...More
