The typical Swiss fondue is available here all year long with a special chef's recipe that's really worth to be tested! In autumn, I can recommend to try the wonderful game plates made with passion by the chef. The deer plate I had was simply delicious!

Gastaus Widder is THE place we take all of our visitors. We love the cheese fondue there! It is a very friendly atmosphere, casual, and comfortable. It is a family run place for so many years, and it is still run like one. The owner is almost always on the premises and will come out and speak with you. The... More

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.
