“You won't be disappointed !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We arrived on the Glacier Express for a 3 day stay in Chur. The Otello was only a 10 minute stroll from our hotel - the ABC and is situated in a quiet, leafy area. Athough we hadn't reserved a table we went on spec but the restaurant was heaving and unfortunately we were unable to dine. The staff were genuinely sympathetic and booked us in for the following evening. We're so glad that we returned; the atmosphere was happy & convivial and there was a buzz around the restaurant as the local football team had been successful in a tourament and the young lads were feasting around a long table which had been prepared for them. There were also tables laid out for birthday celebrations. The staff were extremely courteous and efficient and the restaurant quickly filled up with local clients.
We kicked off with a very fresh and generous green salad. For mains, my wife chose spaghetti carbonara while I opted for lamb - both dishes were well prepared, presented and tasted superb !! We thought it couldn't get better but the desserts we ordered were amazing - tip; try the 'Danemark'.
For what we had chosen to eat and drink we agreed that the cost represented tremendous value.
Without doubt this was our best eating experience in Switzerland (which has high standards anyway) and it will be on our itinerary should we return to the county in the future.

A little of the beaten track but close to our ABC Hotel. We enjoyed several meals here and thoroughly recommend it.

“Very Welcoming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Was recommended by receptionist at ABC Hotel and it didn't disappoint. Although I got there at 6:30 it was already busy, but was shown a table right away. The food was good with plenty of choice and the service was excellent. The waitress (Sarah I think) was very good and attentive with a pleasant smile.
I would definitely eat here again when I next visit Chur.

“Delicious Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2010

We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel we were staying at. It was really good quality food and surprisingly cheap (I say cheap but I probably mean less expensive than other Swiss restaurants we experienced!)

It was just around the corner from our hotel and a little way of the main street. The first night we went was on a Thursday and it was quite quiet. The food was all prepared in house and the pizzas are cooked in an oven you can see from the restaurant. The food was excellent.

They also had menus available in English which was very useful for us! We liked it so much we returned on the Friday night but this night was much much busier and we were lucky to get a table. However, despite the place being so busy the service and food were excellent yet again.
