Greatly restored old restaurant with local kitchen

This restaurant is located in an historic building of the center of Brunnen. It is very nicely decorated. Have your apéritif in the river side bar and your meal inside. pore

Situated just off the lake which makes it less touristy, ie more local. Wine was very descent and price was excellent. Water is expensive but it is the same everywhere

As other reviewers stated, this restaurant claims to be known for its chicken, but it was tasteless and overpriced. My husband's entree cost CH 18.90 (about $20). For that, he received two small pieces of rotisserie chicken and nothing else. On top of that, when they presented the bill they informed us that they did not accept credit cards! Nothing... More

If a restaurant is going to specialize in a particular food, it should be good at it. This place isn't. It is known for fried chicken but the chicken is so greasy and overcooked, it's disgusting.

Bland and expensive. Staff didn't manage even one smile. Their house speciality chicken and chips didn't even come close to our Kentucky Fried Chicken. May as well go into the main square and get a take out from the kebab shop. Food is better, service is better and it's a lot cheaper.
