Fodor's Expert Review Alpenblick

$$ Interlaken Swiss

This carved-wood-and-shingle 17th-century landmark attracts both locals and travelers with its two restaurants. The Bistro serves old-style Swiss cuisine—try the Felchen (a kind of whitefish) from nearby Lake Brienz, or an Alpenblick Rösti (similar to hash browns). The Gourmetstübli, a showcase for chef Richard Stöckli's renowned international fare, may include fish and mussels in a saffron-pepper sauce or veal ravioli and vegetables. The established wine cellar offers Swiss and international wines; should you have a few too many glasses, there is always the option of staying over, as the Alpenblick is also a hotel, with rooms spread over two chalets. The place is in Wilderswil, 2 km (1 mile) south of Interlaken.
