We had a 7:30 pm reservation at Ottenthal Restaurant. We were seated inside and chose from the light “Summer Menu” which included three courses. Both of us started with a cold cucumber and melon soup with goat cheese. My wife liked it very well and I tolerated it.
For the main course I chose a fried breaded chicken with a huge salad of greens with a few gnoc-chi. The salad was filled with nuts, tomatoes, blue berries, strawberries, orange slices, and other fruit. My wife had the salmon with apricot chutney plus a large salad but her salad didn’t have all the fruit like mine. Mine was delicious! For dessert we both had a Peach Melba with raspberry sauce and an almond cookie. Very refreshing and good though the peaches were green and diffi-cult to cut with a spoon.
While the food was excellent the service was extremely slow. We were there two and a half hours, leaving slightly after 10 pm. The waitress just didn’t do things promptly though she was not busy. Even after being asked for wine or the bill she would stand around for 15-20 minutes before getting it. So it was not a case of under-staffing. The German family at the table next to us had the same problem and he finally got up and went looking for someone so he could pay the bill.
