“A wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

I have been here many times, in all seasons and I have never been disappointed. The menu features seasonal offerings and usually has an outstanding dessert. The views are lovely and relaxing. After eating it is always nice to look in on the church, sit on one of the benches and look at the view, or walk around the parks. A reservation is a good idea as it can be crowded. The outdoor seating - simpler dishes than in the restaurant, but nice still nice offerings.

“A lot of tourists, but the food and service are now very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

The Gutschanke at Schloss Johannisberg is too often a victim of its own success.

When the glass walls are closed, the echos within that part of the restaurant become very loud. When the walls are pulled back, the views are wonderful, the breeze is (at least it can be) delightful. Be warbed the chairs in the glass walled room are wicker and (I feel) uncomfortable. Sometimes there are nails and bits of wicker that stick out to tear clothing; irritating and unnecessary.

The kitchen went through a mediocre Phase and we often had the feeling that the A team had been semi-permanently replaced by a B team who lacked the skills and the drive to produce acceptable quality. This seems now thankfully to have changed.

It is a great restaurant to which to take visitors; we prefer an indoor table, where the seats are padded and the noise is less... but that is a matter of taste.

“Outstanding panoramic view combined with delicious food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

A real suntrap on the terrace - a wonderful treat in springtime! Very good service, innovative fresh food and local dishes, combined with a marvelous view and beautiful weather, made for an enjoyable light lunch. There are various seating opportunities depending on the weather which make it a very adaptable venue.
