Come here for the beer, friendly staff and the food. Has a wonderful outdoor seating area, making it a place you could easily spend a long afternoon in the sun, sampling beer, eating and chatting. My visit was solely for the beer selection that I had heard about, but was impressed with the friendly staff and good food. THIS PLACE... More

Happened to spontaneously choose to go there this past Sunday with a couple of friends. A bit out of the way, but hey, was it worth it! From start to finish, a really warm and wonderful experience. This country is only slowly waking up to the importance of customer oriented service and the staff at Fork & Bottle are way... More

It's a restaurant running an American/British inspired menu (American owned/managed), known for their very interesting offering of rare imported beers especially from Italy. If you are a beer fan you must come here - everyone I know is impressed by the variety of their beer menu! But we are in Switzerland, so please to my fellow Americans, stop comparing it... More

Visited with a german colleague on a foggy early December afternoon. A lot of English speakers in the place. American-style restaurant. Looks like a place out of Twillight being located in some remote swiss valley. Friendly owner, efficient waitress. Cosy.

Genuinely warm and friendly staff. They work hard to keep their customers happy, and it pays off. The food is great, and I love that they change the menus regularly, which gently encourages you to consider trying something new. Adapt dishes to suit the customers requirements, especially the fish ('lightly battered please'!) I recommend this restaurant to all types of... More

Visited Fork and Bottle for a special Halloween ‘murder mystery’ event. It was a 4 course set menu (with a choice of main – meat, fish, veg risotto) and some improve entertainment. Service, was excellent – friendly, accommodating, timely. We received good recommendations on the wine and, although, it was a busy night, the staff kept up with all their... More

Fantastic place if you like or have kids otherwise I can not recommend. We where two couples with 3 kids and had a fantastic Sunday Brunch. Good food, good atmosphere und friendly service. By the way... the lunch menu rocks as well... One negative thing I have to mention... What about those Ketchup bottles... they are a pain in the... More

If you love beer then this is a must. Food menu is limited to mainly burgers and pub style food but it is decent quality. Friendly helpful staff with a good knowledge of craft ales. Beer menu extensive and mostly includes beers from Switzerland and Italy.

I can't say enough good things about this place! The food was great, the service was super friendly, and the atmosphere is something I've been missing since I moved to Switzerland. The play area for children is an extra plus, and we probably stayed an hour longer than planned, just because we were enjoying ourselves. We will definitely come here... More
