Quality Eatery

Attentive service without being annoying. Evening got chilly, so we got blankets and sheepkins, which were appreciated. Had a 3 course surprise meal, which was good value and tasty, and the wine went down well too. The veal was really tender :-) Would go again.

I only came here for a quick drink, and it was nice. Can't comment about the interior as we were made to sit outside even though the sun was sporadic and it was a little chilly. There were a few chairs with fur on however. Although busy, the service was efficient, polite and friendly and the location is great -... More

We went to St Gallen spontaneously and decided to book a table in this tiny restaurant. We and our dog received a watm welcome. The menu is not marge and it's even better ! He had a soup made of foam-ish Riesling, delicious. Then a goat cheese-honey-walnuts salad. Good. I enjoyed a tatar of "Fenchel" from the Bodensee, served with... More

I liked the atmosphere and service very much. Food was great and very professionally done, but maybe the fish was not for me. Prices did not match with the food at our visit, but certainly with the service and atmosphere.

This is quaint old buildng with 2 small dining rooms on 1st and 2nd floors with the original wooden beams. Service was friendly and efficient - all three of us chose dishes accompanied with rösti. We were told immediately that, as the restaurant was quite full, we would have to wait for around 45 minutes - we found this very... More

One of those typical St.Gallen first floor Beizli. But food and service are far beyond typical. We were with a group of 12 and all dishes (speaking for the others as well) were well balanced, tasty and very nice plated. Service is outstanding, in attentian as well in advising the appropriate wine. Their reputation was not that well, but with... More
