Tried to Like it But Couldn't

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.

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
