“Worth the Walk!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We walked from our hotel and stopped in to make a reservation, which is recommended. However, we arrived early and were seated, but was told the kitchen didn't open for dinner till 6:00 - not a problem, it was good to sit and relax. The warm home-like setting made us feel comfortable. Our waitress was very helpful and we were pleased to see the menu in English! The prices are a little higher than what I would have normally spent on dinner. My husband ordered the veal cordon bleu-39.50, which he enjoyed and I ordered the weinerschnitzel, 38.00- which was very good- although it was a bit more greasy than I like. They do give you a lot of food, so unfortunately, we didn't have room for dessert!

“Authentic!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

Food was delicious and would have even been better if it had not felt like a sauna in there. Everyone in the place was local when we went. Wine was good, as was the service.

“Delicious sauces”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Best lunch in Switzerland! Beef strauganoff was wonderful with the pungent paprika sauce. Most other items eaten by the surrounding diners were also much appreciated. Service was friendly. Waitress spoke several languages. The espresso was divine.
Near the Reuss River and the Aldstadt, it is easy to get to.
Believe me, this restaurant with its traditional Swedish fare will be a meal you remember for a long time. It's been in business since 1681!

“Very warm ambience and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Wirsthaus Galliker made you feel like you're in home. The owner and waitresses served you with care, wanted you to feel as comfortable as you can. We ordered Veal Bratwurst with Rosti and Thinly sliced veal in cream sauce with rosti. Both were nice, although we expected more of the Rosti after reading the reviews. The owner, Mr Peter Galliker, was the fourth-generation of the family and treated us as if we're good friends. The food was also reasonably priced (my bratwurst cost CHF19 and the other one cost CHF29) considering it's in Swiss. Come here if you want to enjoy typical Swiss cuisine.
