Barry’s Grindelwald is a very cosy restaurant in the centre of Grindelwald. It has a round bar, surrounded by a small dining room. If you are coming in the winter season, it’s recommendable to book in advance. There is also a hotel and spa within the same premises.
The table presentation was plain, paper and ordinary cutlery. It would be nice to see something with a bit more presence.
We were welcomed at the door, and we had to present our Covid certificates. We did not have a reservation, but they gave us a table anyways. It was early, five pm, and they asked us if we would like to have snacks (the snack menu is available all day round) or wait until 5.30 pm for the whole menu. We decided to have a drink and wait. They gave us the menu, and precisely at 5.15 pm, they took our order in to give time to the chefs to prepare the food accordingly.
The waitress was quite knowledgeable about wine. She recommended three different types of wine, going from more light Swiss, to French wine and a stronger Spanish. Overall the service was friendly and efficient.
The menu is not very long. They feature some Swiss classics, including Cordon Bleu, Rosti, and Fondue. There is also a salad buffet.
They offered to prepare a half portion of anything on the menu for the kids.
Rosti with Beef in Mushroom Sauce
Wonderfully Swiss Rosti with schnitzel (small beef filets) in a thick mushroom sauce. It was very creamy, and the rusty crunch outside and soft in the middle.
It had roasted vegetables on the site and a little bit of schnitzel on the other side.
Beef Burger 200g
The burger was big, 200 g of meat, inside a big slice of raclette cheese.
The meat was well cooked. Not dry and not bloody. The bun was some brioche, soft inside but crunchy on the outside. The burger was topped with a cherry tomato.
Yes, Fries! We ordered three times. They were remarkable. Delicious crunchy. They seem to be fried and then roasted. We called in total three extra portions.
