Despite the charming location and authentic swiss interiours the Rössli was betrayed by unwelcoming staff and a host who seems to be bereft of all sensibility. All the more sad as this used to be a warm place to enjoy a casual night out with friends. one would assume that spending 500 swiss francs (600 dollars) for a party of four would lead to free tap water but halas no. Not only did we pay for free tap water but were also charged for one late ordered esspresso (the 600$ bill had already been paid for). Where has swiss hospitality and rationalism gone especially in light current economic state of affairs (strong swiss franc vs. any other currency). In austria you could be sure to receive a digestive plus coffee free of charge and a hug on your way out. To round up our impression there not only was no hug ;-) on our way out but the restaurant seemed to be deserted of all staff!
