Alpenrose Review

It doesn't get more Swiss than this: the ingredients, the recipes, the wines, and the decor are all Helvetian. The interior is elegantly casual, with wainscoting and etched-glass windows, linen tablecloths, a mounted chamois head, and paintings of the Matterhorn and other well-known landmarks. Enjoy seasonal dishes such as Engadiner pizokel (flour dumplings) with ham, or duck breast with dried plum sauce and mashed potatoes. The owners' devotion to local ingredients means the menu often changes.

    Awful service! Stay away!

    We went out of our way to go to this restaurant in Zuri-West. Nobody greeted us at the door. We got menus and bread - no water, no explanations of the German-only menus, no greeting, nothing. We waited more than 15 minutes for somebody to take our order. They waited on everybody else but us. Finally, we had enough and left! Don't bother. These guys just couldn't care less about guests who come from afar. They simply don't respect visitors. Stay away!
