“Local restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

This is a very local restaurant. The waitress could bearly speak english. In my memory, there wasn't any english menu but they do have a website with the menu on it. If you can only understand english, I suggest you to do a google translation of the menu first before going there so you know what you want to order.
There was a long table in the middle of the restaurant, like a canteen bench and we seat there, Along with some locals who were reading newspaper. We ate the Vodka pasta and a pork chop. Both tasted above average although the Vodka pasta has very little ingredients and did not have a strong taste of vodka which I was hoping for.
It's an experience to navigate your way there, order food and eat, together with all the locals, the night we were the, there were no other tourists around besides us. The food is really reasonably priced by switzerland standards and the portion is quite big as well :) bear in mind this is not a romantic hangout. It's just a very local eatery :)

“Sunday brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

Excellent spot for Sunday brunch. A good selection for all tastes. Good way to spend Sunday mornings/afternoons, reading the papers.

“Great value!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2011

They have two different menus for each day, and they are very reasonably priced, good portions and it's great quality as well.

It is a hip place, and cool. Sometimes it gets noisy, though, but all in all I recommend it.

“Eat with, and just like..the locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2010

This is a chilled out place where lots of young locals hang out, to socialise and use the internet!
The choice of food was OK and at the cheaper end of the price range - most, if not all dishes are under SWFr20.

The service was friendly, and the food tasted great.
The beer (Eichhof Klosterbräu) was excellent (SWFR6.60 per 500cl). It's a cloudy, unfiltered beer.
I'd go again, and recommend anyone else to go.
*be aware that they do NOT accept cards for payment, it's CASH only! (which seems to help them keep the costs down)
