Ok this is a mountain restaurant at nearly 3000m set in amazing scenery so you expect to pay more and rightly so. But please do something about the organisation. 25 minutes in a queue for soup is just not what you want. One person serving and one person on the till sat there waiting for most of the time is not efficient. We also had problems finding somewhere to sit. Was it busy? No. Many of the tables had reservations on them - some of them over an hour past the reservation time and still empty. Swiss quality food and proces but not Swiss organisation. Get your act together or I suggest everyone head over to Lagalb where the food is better and the sevice excellent!

The kids were hungry after playing in the snow, we had no choice but to eat there being aware of the expensive price as this is Switzerland's mountain restaurant. We had been in holiday in Europe for more than a week and started missing to have some rice so we were surprised and were glad that they have chicken curry rice in the menu! Very yummy and satisfying. Stunning vista even from inside the restaurant.

We took the cable car up,(CHF38 return each). Decided to have a simple bit to eat while enjoying the beautiful view and warm sunny day outside the terrace. Many tourist groups. Chinese, Japanese. People came from all over the world. Hiking, Mountain climbing...so the place is very busy. Not much the service I might say when you sit outside. We had a bratwurst each, costCHF12.80 per piece. 1 coka, 1 small bottle of wine . 2 slices of bread. total bill was CHF59....everything cost extra, like bread or sauce. You juge the price yourself. Up to you want to sit and eat at Berghaus or simply walk around without eating or drinking at this place.

We've had two lunches on two separate occasions at Berghaus Diavolezza and both times I felt well-fed and happy with my choice of dishes. My companions did too. Extensive menu with many local dishes, selection of wines (local and international), stunning views. The staff is very friendly (and quick) and food/drinks are competitively priced.

We will be back :)

This was our tenth stop-over on our hiking “Tour of the Benina” the location of this Refugio makes it very special. All the staff was very welcoming and helpful. The room was clean with comfortable beds, and the shared toilet/shower rooms were just down the corridor were also clean. In fact, it was more like a hotel than a refugio. The meals were of high quality and the service excellent in their smart restaurant. Once the day tourists had departed the atmosphere changed and becomes even more special. The buffet breakfast provided next day was excellent with so much to choose from.
