Fodor's Expert Review Bären

$$ Brienz Eclectic

Mature trees strung with lights shade a brick terrace perched above the lake, making this establishment a lovely spot for a meal. The lighter choices include poached whitefish in a white-wine sauce. And if you want a break from Swiss cuisine, the restaurant's chef from southern India has created a full menu of South Asian fare. On summer evenings you might catch live music—acts that grace the Montreux Jazz Festival often stop here before heading home. The hotel offers simple guest rooms as well as Ayurvedic treatments.
