Arno, I was curious about Rosti, since I had heard so much about it, also the Swiss fondue. So as I was based in Lauterbrunnen (Camping Jungfrau, amazing place!) I tried their rosti. Didn't care for it. Also tried fondue at one of the restaurants in Lauterbrunnen...just ok but I wouldn't order it again. A person can only eat so much bread and cheese.
Wanting to try rosti again, thinking it was a one-off bad experience, I ordered it at a restaurant recommended on this forum by Alpenrose near the Alpiglen train station headed to the Eiger Trail. Even worse than the campground restaurant. Also on the Schynigge Platte to First hike there was a cafe along the way where I got a sausage...most awful, even considering I was pretty hungry.
In Grindelwald i had something I can't even remember and I remember thinking well that was a total waste of money because even after dessert I was still hungry!
The rest of the time I made ramen and had cheese and bread or a salad from COOP. Delicious!
I had a meal (duck!) on my last day in Switzerland on my way to the airport hotel, in Montreux, after visiting the Queen museum and the castle, it was most delicious and a beautiful place with outside seating right on the lake. I would go back again just to eat there. But I have found that my time in France has given me the best culinary experiences, so that makes sense for Montreux.
