First time I visited this place with my spouse, this time we went for business dinner on a very warm evening. Sitting in the garden is great, big trees provide shade and coolness. Unfortunately every now and then wasps flied around, nothing very bad but I suppose they could make even more efforts to keep those away. First we got... More

We ate the surprise menu 4 course for 70 CHF. This is a bit cheaper than average with the quality higher than average, so we felt it was a good choice. In the summer you can sit in a very nice garden which we really appreciated. Service was good.

You don't expect to find such a beautiful location in the middle of a rather greyish neighborhood near the swiss/german border. The former children's home (hence the name Schifferhaus) is surrounded by a small but pleasant park. The menu which chef Willimann is offering is kept short - which I like. They rather focus on quality than quantity - and... More
