Excellent food, excellent service

The outdoor seating area is lovely. I am a big bone marrow fan and was delighted to see it cut the long way.

The Restaurant itself need some renovation, nevertheless I am totally surprised by the cousine! Homestyle. We had many dishes in the last months, all very delicious and home style.

This restaurant serves nice meals in a typical Swiss style restaurant, where you share a long table with other guests. Food is nice. You can choose past for around 20 CHF or a fresh fish, steak etc. for around 40 CHF. The garden is outstanding, especially on a nice summer day.

I have been to the Platanenhof 2 or 3 times by now and each time I have been really impressed by the excellent food, in combination with a really friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

I've been to the Platanenhof twice now and both times I have been really impressed with the food. Really excellent cuisine in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The choice of wines isn't huge, but what I've tried so far (Spanish and Ticino) has been very good and not too hard on the wallet. I'm looking forward to going there in... More
