Nice menu, value and ambiance – First of all, this is not an easy restaurant to spot. It has a low profie at Sepulveda and La Tijera and there is ample parking in the back where you can enter through a glass door of an office buliding. My family came from Interlaken, though I have only been back once and I spent a month TDY in Germany with the Air Force. The Brats and potato pancake I had for dinner this evening were as light and flavorful as any I had in the region and the Erdinger on tap was much fresher and mild than I expected. Overall this was an excellent find. I came in at 6 PM on a Monday and watched the place fill up over the next half hour. Service was friendly, competent and prompt. Kitchen was reasonably quick and meal was perfect.
Different – Food is not really traditional Swiss. You have to go to Switzerland to really have real Swiss food. Oddly enough, the pizza is very good. A little on the pricey side.
Yum! Fondue is amazing! – I love this restaurant. It's this little known secret....not in the best area but I think WestChester is supposed to be "up and coming". It's so charming inside - its cozy and its a great place to go on a date. Share the fondue. Great beers on tap too. You won't be disappointed.
Swiss in the city: Airport travelers and Westside locals get a taste of the Alpine life at this resort-inspired restaurant that's all about its beer and Bavarian grub. – The only Swiss restaurant in the city, this casual and friendly spot is where lederhosen-clad waiters serve up traditional Bavarian treats like Swiss mac-and-cheese (macaroni and Swiss cheese topped with Italian ground beef tomato sauce), weiner schnitzel and raclette (potatoes dipped in cheese) to curious diners sitting at blonde aged-wood tables. Just a few blocks away from the airport, the makeshift Swiss scene gives Angelenos (and perhaps a few visiting neighbors from abroad) a taste of the Alps with its ski-lined walls and alphorns scattered along the restaurant. The outdoor patio comes complete with a scenic mural of a Swiss mountainside, creating a visual getaway from the L.A. traffic.
Great new restaurant -- a must experience! – We happened upon this restaurant on the way back from LAX. We were pleasantly surprised by the great food, excellent beer, and warm hospitality. I did not know much about Swiss food, but the dishes were wonderful. We loved the fondue and the range of authentic dishes (try the Mac N Cheese -- noodles, swiss cheese and a great beef sauce). The giant pretzel was also fantastic. And be sure to wash your meal down with one of their great beers. We've been back three times in four weeks, and this has already become our favorite place for comfort food. They have indoor and outdoor seating -- perfect for a meal or evening with friends and conversation over a few refeshing pints! Definitely a restaurant worth experiencing!
Finally, a great restaurant near the airport – Come early, because once this place is discovered, it will be packed. We happened upon this close to the airport, great for Westchester locals upscale swiss cuisine (who knew?) by accident and boy am I glad we did.
No more quick In-and-Out, this is the place to grab a bite and a beer in Westchester. The food is great, you are treated like you are one of the family, and did I mention the beer?
All in all we had a great experience and have nothing but great things to say about this new restaurant, we will be regulars for sure.
