Glarus is a small capital city and it is not easy to find high-quality elegant dining here. However, this restaurant fits the bill and would be our choice recommendation for friends looking for a special dinner in Glarus.

Bergli

Reviewed By BJ C - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Went with friends from the same canton who knew the restaurant. For Switzerland, value for money, Bergli is a great deal. Fresh-made, local food with unusually good service.
I had the Ziger cheese(a stronger flavor melted cheese) and tomato topped pork steak with the fresh steamed vegetables, and french fries. My wife had a local wurst that is only made in Canton Glarus. It was served with a white onion sauce, mashed potatoes, and local stewed plums. Both dishes were simple but packed with good taste. Portions were of a good size. We topped this off with the Hausgemachte Cremeschnitte, a house specialty-hard whipped cream between two puff pastry portions, dusted with powdered sugar. Again, simple and delicious.
Even summer evenings can get cool, so a light sweater for a summer time outdoor meal is a good idea.
Sight overlooks a local church where Zwingli was, if you a follower of church history.
Fun location, good food--we'll go back.

Berggasthaus Schwammhohe

Reviewed By JDSoui - Irving, Texas

The combination of both good food and excellent sights made this experience one not to forget.
Arriving at the restaurant patrons are greeted with a view of Lake Klonetalersee sitting at the base of the valley between two mountain ranges. The additional element of clouds beginning to form made the experience even more memorable.
The dishes were delicious as orders were made for veal, steak and pasta using local cheeses. We found the restaurant make it priority to source food from local suppliers, especially cheese, which enhances freshness.
The service was prompt, kind and professional and with views as from the patio, a return stop if in the area again would be definite.

Freulerbar

Reviewed By Swissdiver - Geneva, Switzerland

Went to this bar on my way to the train station. It is a nice little bar, with mostly high chairs inside but also outside on the little Terrace. Cocktails are available as well as wine by the glass (a choice of 3 white and 3 red) at decent prices (from CHF 5 for a pleasant Italian Anghelia 2013 from Sardinia). And the barman was very welcoming and helping.
A very nice place for a drink in Glarus.

Bergrestaurant Leuggelen

Reviewed By hhhtheone - Schwanden, Switzerland

Das rustikale "Bergbeizli" ist seit langem bei den Einheimischen und Besuchern bekannt. Die Grillspezialitäten und die frischen Salate auf der Sonnenterrasse oder in der Gaststube zu geniessen ist einfach schön. Die familiäre Bedienung ist sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend und die Preise sind moderat.
