This restaurant is very well located, and we had very friendly waiters. The menu has a wide selection of Swiss and also South African meals. Food quality was good, presentation as well. One key point to improve is the time to serve (2 hours between arrival and main meal served...), and at that point some of the meals were quasi... More

Really pittoresk restaurant with really good food! Service friendly and with a touch of "beeing at home".

During my weekend in Zug I had a lunch at Widder. Restaurant is centrally located in the old town main square - a 15-minute walk from the railway station. Warm welcome and friendly service throughout the entire meal. Restaurant room is small and I found the tables to be a bit too close to each other. Lavatories spotlessly clean. No... More

I was in this nice and typical swiss restaurant. The service was pleasant and fast. The menu has a lot of possibilities. The prices are medium-high. I ordered a salad and peace of meat with krauts and spaetzle, I was not enthusiastic for what I paid but was enough (I would be able to do the same dish at home).... More

It's located in the nicest square of the old town. Since it was raining, I could afford a fondue even if it was July and it was first quality. Nothing special or typical for dessert. Very friendly service. Even if I could speak the local language, the chef tried - with good results - to talk to me in Italian.... More

The fondue is good and is served all year round. The waiting staff are nice and the atmosphere is more buzzing than many restaurants in the area

Nice and cosy restaurant (especially on a cold winter night). Friendly staff and relatively quick service. Some interesting menu choices (south african dishes) Food is OK, but that's it; nothing really special that would make it a "must go" restaurant. There are better restaurants close by.

Gasthous Widder is a real gem. The staff and owner are very friendly and the food is excellent. The décor was fitting for a Swiss restaurant which created a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. I would recommend Gasthous Widder for either a family night out or for couples. The only drawback are the prices but that's par for Switzerland and Zug... More

The first time I visited this restaurant, I tried the Bobotie lamb curry. It was fantastic. I used to have it every time I visited afterwards until I saw, and tasted, my friend's fillet steak on one vist. To say it was divine would be doing it an injustice; the flavour was incredible and it fell apart under the weight... More

Great Fondue in summer time ;-) Great beer (also Czech Pilsner urquell). Located right on the main square in Zug next to the lake, old town and new downtown.
