Out of the world! An item for your bucket list.

The view is spectacular, the location is challenging & the ambience is great. Either you walk up from Wasserauen the healthy way to build up an appetite or take the cable car to Ebenalp & walk down.

The Beef Goulash we had was amazing. The Cheese Rousti that we ordered was out of this world! The servings were very generous! The view was fantastic! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I had the privilege during my last holiday to visit this stunning Gem, found on the cliffs in the Appenzell Mountains. It blew my mind with it's breathtaking views and exquisite scenery. Topped with delicious food and service with a smile, it was certainly one of the most memorable moments I will ever experience in my life.

I hiked up to Aescher from Seealpsee with my family. What a spectacular place to grab a meal/drinks/ice cream at the end of a hike. Aescher is perched on a small outcropping on a cliff providing visitors with outstanding views of the surrounding valleys and mountains. It is a nice old wooden structure with outdoor seating for good weather days.... More

Not only is this the most stunning location and view I have ever seen in my life, and I travel for a living, so this is saying a lot! The journey there is part of it, we spent the night, but you can come in for lunch or have a early dinner! The cable car usually stops running at 7... More

We didn't eat here, but grabbed a beer after hiking around the area. Very fun place, packed with people, and great location. If you're hiking or taking a cablecar to the area, I would definitely at least stop by for a drink. All the food we saw did look delicious though!!!

This is the prefect wonderland if you get a place on the terasse. Spectacular view, cold drinks, great cake / food and friendly service. Little more would be heaven :-)

Were there with my son and a friend with his son. Great location, built in the mountain, this restaurant has an incredibly emplacement in the scenary. Unfortunately the service lacks attitude and friendliness. We ordered Rösti and and asked for two empty side dishes to share with our kids. They charged 2 sfr per empty plate, which i do not...

I can’t stress enough how amazing this is! Anyone who loves trekking, walking or have adventure corner in their heart. This should be on your Bucket list. Visit to Aescher will leave you speechless. This is a Restaurant cum Hotel where you can enjoy local beer/drinks and Swiss local Rosti. I had Rosti with salad whereas Akhil had Rosti with... More

The experience of getting there is a stunning adventure itself, walking through caves on the way. To find this gasthaus climbing on the side of the alp is an amazing sight. Only the view itself is worth a visit, but the staff in the restaurant treat you as a returning old friend, the atmosphere is warm and the food is... More
